Mandala Workshops was founded in 1996 by Lily Mazurek, M.A. as a way to share her life’s mission--helping others heal by grasping the profound message of the Mandala. Mandalas are circular designs signifying wholeness. Their amazing power goes far beyond the idea of simple drawings or decoration, however. In the past decade or so, we seem to have entered the Age of the Mandala.
They have begun appearing around the world more and more in new and different contexts. Increasingly, people are also becoming more aware of them. And yet, they have been used in healing ceremonies for centuries by cultures the world over because of their transformative effect on the body, mind, and spirit. The beautiful circular Mandala designs created in our hands-on Workshops too, are by their very nature, therapeutic and healing. They always work. How and why this is so is revealed naturally in the enjoyable environment of the Mandala-making process Ms. Mazurek creates for each session.
