WHAT IS A MANDALA?
The word mandala, is Sanskrit for “circle”. It is a geometric design that holds a great deal of symbolism in Hindu and Buddhist cultures. Mandalas are inherently found in nature in forms such as seashells, birds’ nests, fruits and flowers.
Painting a mandala aids in enhancing focus, silencing thoughts, combatting stress and anxiety, and forming a greater sense of connection with yourself and the universe.
The mandala that you paint could symbolise something that you want to achieve in life. It also has the potential to change how we see ourselves and our purpose.
DO WE ALL HAVE TO DO IT TOGETHER?
Painting a mandala is a unique experience for everybody. We recommend that people do it when it suits them. the team experience will come when you share and inspire each other.
WHAT IF MY PEOPLE CAN’T PAINT OR ARE NOT CREATIVE?
A mandala is literally doodling in a circle, it can be as simple or complicated as you want to make it. Our expertise is in helping ordinary people to paint and create, so we know what to put in the box to make it a relaxing and fulfilling experience for everyone.
WILL IT APPEAL TO MY TEAM?
We have been getting teams of all different ages and industries to paint for over 20 years. While there have been a few people that didn’t expect to enjoy it, there has never been anyone that has actually not enjoyed it. In fact, the doubters are usually the ones that don’t want it to end. The kickoff video will get them going, and then the mandala process will draw them in.
WILL THEY HAVE TIME, IN BETWEEN WORKING AND HOME SCHOOLING
The act of relaxing and taking your mind somewhere else actually boosts productivity. While we want the experience to be relaxing and soothing, it is definitely something you can do with it with the kids. It is an opportunity to let them inspire you with their fresh perspective and free thinking. We have popped in a few colouring templates so you can give them to the kids. It is such a deeply relaxing process, pop on some soothing music and you will find the whole house will calm down and go with it.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
Creating a mandala is a very personal experience. You might whip it up in an hour, or you may like to spend the whole weekend engrossed in it.
CAN WE DO MORE THAN ONE?
The mandala board is double sided so you can do two. There is also lovely card stock that can be used. There is plenty of paint to make at least 10.
The packaging is completely compostable. We hope you will reuse the plastic paint bottles; they make great traveling bottles.
