Yantra painting is a meditative practice. Using the left and right side of the brain simultaneously, by chanting and drawing/painting, harmony arises. These ancient symbols also hold archetypal energy, the shapes and colors (depending on the yantra/chakra) help us to remember our primal self, and our divine nature. The chant is the link to the sacred sounds, they help to focus our inner chatter to just one thing at a time. Slowing down our minds, and shifting our perspective, we naturally feel better.
We will learn the symbology and meaning of the different parts of the Yantra and how they relates to our own lives, as well a the construction (drawing and painting) of the yantra will take us deeper into the feeling of devotion, meditation and sacredness.
Each class starts with an invocation/ meditation to prepare us for the sacred practice of yantra and chakra making. In this class setting everyone may be working on a different yantra. Usually students begin with mooladhara chakra, and work their way up, learning the skills of drawing and painting along the way. This class is for all level students. No artistic talent or ability required just patience and an open mind.
