EVENT DESCRIPTION

November 13-17
Mandala Sand Painting Residency

As part International Education Week, these practicing monk artists will create a colorful Mandala Sand Painting as a meditative practice on world healing and a symbol for the impermanence of life.  A separate Community Sand Mandala will give children and adults a chance to try their hand at this ancient practice. 
 
Visitors are welcome during the creating process and to the final closing ceremony when the sand mandala is destroyed and returned to the earth for a blessing of healing. 
 
There is no fee to visit the sand painting or the ceremonies. 
Tickets are required for the 11/17 performance.
