Stretch your body, mind and creative soul juices with mindful yoga, transformative art in the form of a personal mandala, and be inspired by the beauty of the landscape while hiking and meditating in nature at Ghost Ranch. The power of yoga and meditation especially in a sacred place as this, can facilitate a path to inner peace as can the process of art making. The meaning of the word mandala in Sanskrit is circle, and represents the universe, and dates back to the 4th century to the present. The circular design symbolizes the idea that life is never ending and all is connected. The mandala also represents a spiritual journey within the maker and viewer. Participants will be guided in simple designs to sketch and and add color, to create a personal piece of art for their own meditation practice and to simply enjoy. The yoga practice as well as pranayama(breathing exercises), will be co-facilitated by Susan and Guillermo, as well as energizing and relaxing hikes (2-3 miles max), on the ranch. Possibly a field trip will also be incorporated. You will leave refreshed, de-stressed and have a lovely piece of art! No art or yoga experience necessary.
