Mandalas & Mindfulness - How to with Sara 

This video recording is from our Mindful Mandala Moments online workshop. Create a beautiful simple intuitive mandala with Sara (+ Jules)while learning some easy mindfulness strategies and send out well wishes to those you care about.

Did you know? Designing and coloring mandalas can help you focus your attention. That’s why they’re a great exercise for calming down when you’re stressed and waking up your mind.

Here are some other benefits of making mandalas:

  • They help with balance.
  • They help with concentration.
  • They make it easier to be mindful.
  • Another thing thing they do is push aside thoughts and let your creativity flow.
  • The way all the shapes and designs are laid out brings a feeling of balance.
