08 | Mystical Arts of Tibet

Mystical Arts of TibetMake time in your schedule for a week of reflection and inspiration. The monks will once again create a sand-painted mandala: used as a tool for re-consecrating the earth and its inhabitants. From all the artistic traditions of Tantric Buddhism, that of painting with colored sand ranks as one of the most unique and exquisite. Millions of grains of sand are painstakingly laid into place on a flat platform over a period of days. The sand mandala will be deconstructed during the closing ceremony, half the sand will be distributed to the audience, while the remainder is carried to a nearby body of water. The waters then carry the healing blessing of the deposited sand to the ocean, and from there it spreads throughout the world for planetary healing.
