Krishna is the ruler of the mind who holds the reins of the senses. He moves freely on Earth as a guardian of the natural world and physical life. Krishna renews our need for playfulness; he allows us to fluidly loosen our grip onto reality while masterfully steering our chariot towards divinity.
The word yantra in Sanskrit means tool, machine or instrument. Yantras are usually geometric diagrams, made of a small dot (bindu) surrounded by circles, triangles, and squares, each having symbolic meaning. These shapes come together to form the pattern of the divine. A yantra is also a visual form of a mantra used to strengthen your focus in meditation.
In this sacred painting workshop we will learn the symbology and meaning of the different parts of the KrishnaYantra and how she relates to our own lives. The construction (drawing and painting) of the yantra coupled with the mantra, sacred sound, will take us deeper into the feeling of devotion and meditation.
When our yantras are complete we will learn how to use them for daily meditation and take home the tools that help us remember our creative flow.
