Learn the ancient process of creating a Yantra: an art form that uses sacred geometry to evoke a meditative state. Diana will guide you through the traditional steps to complete your very own Yantra. There is a specific and meaningful process, such as working from the outside in, that mirrors the process of going from the outside world into your being as you meditate or practice yoga. The first part of the workshop will be spent laying down the outline with pencil, ruler, and compass on paper. There will be a lunch break followed with a yoga neidra, The rest of the workshop will be spent painting your Yantra. If time permits we will do a short mediation with our yantras.
This process is fun and creative as well as meditative. No artistic experience necessary!
