Mandala Workshop to Celebrate the Summer Solstice

Apr 29, 2014 04:34AM

Suchinta Abhayaratna, Th.D., will facilitate a Community Sand Mandala to celebrate the summer solstice from 2 to 5 p.m., on Saturday, June 21 in Fairfax (exact location will be sent to attendees). From ancient times, visualizing, creating and meditating on a mandala has been a spiritual practice by which one’s own divine creative essence, through symbolic and sacred art, is expressed.

Abhayaratna, the workshop leader, is a transpersonal and transformational psychologist, holistic self-care coach and workshop facilitator, living and working in the Washington metropolitan area. She is the developer of Creative Holistic Integration (CHI), a heart-centered, subtle energy-based holistic self-care and self-transformation program. She studied mandala with Dr. Judith Cornell and is a certified mandala facilitator and teaches mandala as an associate professor at Holos University.

In addition to the solstice event, Abhayaratna offers Mandala Healing Art workshops to individuals and groups, in-person and online, as one of several holistic self-care processes that are part of the CHI self-care program. The next series of mandala workshops will be offered on Saturdays in July.
