“The Mandala Journal”
The psychoanalyst Carl Jung saw the mandala as “a representation of the unconscious self,” and believed his paintings of mandalas enabled him to identify emotional disorders and work towards wholeness in personality. In common use, mandala has become a generic term for any plan, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically. Intrigued and inspired by the meaning and history of Mandalas, this journal was created and loosely based on this concept. Singular unbound round pages can have mandalas on one side and have journaling on the back and are neatly housed inside the Mandala Journal Box. Pages can be removed, flipped over or rearranged at will – a format that makes working on pages and reading them a real pleasure. Focus of this workshop is on personalizing the provided Mandala Journal box and preparing it for your journaling needs. We’ll discuss different methods of making pages and techniques with provided samples. It is well suited for all levels.
