Mandala Workshops with Kathryn Costa

When life feels scattered, chaotic, or messy, creating and coloring mandalas offers a feeling of wholeness, centeredness, and balance. Mandala is a Sanskrit word that means “circle” or “center.” They’ve become popular these days in the many adult coloring books on the market. Anyone who can print the alphabet can create a mandala. We use the same lines – vertical, horizontal, curved, and diagonal – to draw the shapes. Focusing on drawing and coloring takes our minds off our worries and to-do lists. When our minds relax our bodies follow. During this quiet time, we can experience deep relaxation. It’s also a time when we can focus on a positive intention that inspires us to appreciate what we have or to choose something better for ourselves. Each mandala that we create is as unique as the person who creates it. Come and experience the joy of watching a beautiful work of art emerge from your own hands.

Vision Journal Play Date

Did you pick a word-for-the-year or create a vision board or dream wheel? Keep your vision alive and get inspired to take the next steps in my new Vision Journal Play Dates. These “play dates” are live, interactive events using Zoom web conferencing. It’s the next best thing to meeting up in person.

What’s a Vision Journal?

Think vision board meets journal. We combine found images and words collected from magazines, catalogs, old calendars, etc. with journal prompts to inspire, delight, and create soulful conversations.

Vision journals are a great place to gain clarity around what you desire and map out action steps with fun prompts and activities.
