Mandala – Harmonising Man and Nature
The mandala reveals its secrets.
Drawing mandalas in free form, they reveal hidden pearls of wisdom.
We have a week to deepen, explore and balance what they show us.
A week-long course where the mandala will be a central theme.
Examining the classical forms’ symbolic meaning relating to the element-origins, saturating everything that exists. Element practices and freeform drawings will function as a tool to help move toward a balanced state of being.
In this course, we will explore the different phenomena of the mandala, using this to heal and reveal through the ancient Indo-Tibetan Wisdom of the Mandala. The traditional Indo-Tibetan mandala combines in its structure the five elements, the five colours and the five seed syllable sounds, the ground of our being and that of nature itself. Combined with the five skandhas (our psycho-physical existence), the five psychological/emotional functions, and the five Buddha qualities, the intrinsic wisdom essential for existence.
Tarab Tulku has created methods for personal development through contacting, enriching and balancing the five element-energies, basic to the principle of the traditional mandala, qualities at a physical level, a psychological level and energy level, developing a healthy connection with the natural energies of inner and outer existence for healing the imbalances within. These methods will be taught and practised during the course.
The harmonious functioning of these life forces is essential and indispensable for a healthy continuation of the existence of the universe and the individual. Through meditation and contemplation we will create spontaneous mandala drawings. The mandala being an expression of these basic forces of existence; the mandala drawings display patterns to guide us in the following healing process.
