Non-residential ART RETREAT Weekend October 27-30  


Friday evening - Saturday and Sunday full day


Public lectures, Art tuition, meditation and mantra recitation

This course will focus on the Medicine Buddha and his mandala. Students will learn about the intricate structure of his mandala. Depending on talent and previous experience students will receive hands-on-tuition to draw the mandala or learn to draw the Seed Syllable and Mantra garland of the Medicine Buddha. The visualization of the seed Syllable and Mantra Garland is essential for the deep healing practice and experience of the Medicine Buddha, therefore the course will include meditation and long mantra recitations.

Students will learn drawing skills and gain insight into painting techniques of Tibetan tangkha painting.  Artistic talent is not essential, genuine perseverance is preferred.

A course particularly beneficial for anyone in the caring / healing profession
