The Making Life: Mandalas

Seeking Stillness in God Through Drawing

Psalm 46:10  “Be still and know that I AM"

A mandala is a circular design containing integrated concentric forms or images. Drawing mandala circles can become a form of creative meditation that leads to stillness in God.  During this retreat day, participants will have hands-on opportunities to learn how the mandala process evolved and how to make mandalas of their own.

Leaders for this Event

Sherry Walter - Although my college degree was in Philosophy (Connecticut College, New London), I have devoted more than 50 years to an exploration of my unfolding spirituality.  Always a seeker, restless in the ways of orthodox traditions, I found that the desired stillness in God eluded me.  Yet, pulled forward as if by God’s magnet, the quiet process of drawing mandalas provided the stillness I sought. This is one way among many to become available to God; it is a way I would like to share.
Glenn Mitchell is Director of Oasis Ministries and has a practice of spiritual direction in Spring Mills, Pennsylvania. Glenn loves all things contemplative and in his spare time enjoys watching birds, restoring their 1800's log home and making things from wood.
