Mandala workshops and classes
These are workshops of self-discovery and self-enrichment, where students learn to work from or towards the conscious through the age-old natural knowledge of the mandala. "Mandala" is the Sanskrit word for "holy circle".

It is a way of meditating, of becoming quiet in oneself. When a mandala is drawn or painted intuitively, it can have the appearance of an abstraction – which it is, in a manner of speaking. Mandalas can also be geometric – an act of the left hemisphere – which helps to affect integration and to restore meaning and balance to one's life.
The above mandalas are all collographs.

Carl Gustav Jung used mandalas as part of his psychotherapy. He also drew mandalas himself every day. The creation of a mandala forms part of a process of self-discovery. This process can also be described as a state of meditation, during which one gets in touch with the inner godhead. One progresses intuitively from the unconscious to the conscious or from the conscious to the unconscious, while unconsciously solving conflict and doing self-discovery by means of the left or right hemisphere of the brain. This creative process not only puts one in touch with your creative abilities, but also helps you find solutions to your problems. Group workshops of self-discovery are offered on request. Since the creation of a mandala can be an extremely private process, however, private lessons can also be arranged.
