Yantra Painting: Sacred Geometry

SEE EVENT DETAILS
A second opportunity to encounter the sacred and ancient art/discipline of Yantra painting with master artist Pieter Weltevrede, visiting from Holland. It is an honor to practice with him! You are encouraged to take both workshops, but are welcome to come to just this one. Participants work at their own pace. Experience clarity of mind, inner peace, and connect with your creativity.
A yantra is a powerful meditation tool, both through the process—plotting the mathematical structure and systematically painting it—and as a symbol of the mantra it represents (with a central focal point). Focus and quiet concentration are required. The visual and nonverbal right hemisphere of the brain is enlisted. With the inner silence comes self-awareness. Watch your experience and find the center again. Encountering the symmetrical, geometric pattern fosters inner harmony.
Elevate your consciousness by connecting to the Divine, the universal cosmology.
We begin with the Ganesha yantra, pictured at left, carefully drawing the sacred geometry, then painting with the specific colors of the Ganesha energy. If you have already painted the Ganesha yantra, you will have the opportunity to paint a planet yantra.
All materials provided, but you are welcome to bring a pencil, eraser, compass and/or straight edge with metric measurements. No experience necessary. Please sign up in advance.
Portfolio Viewing: Sunday 11/4 at 6:00pm Satsang
Even if you can't make the workshops, please don't miss Satsang on Sunday when Pieter will present his portfolio. You have probably come across his work on wall calendars and greeting cards. It is another thing entirely to marvel at dozens of his extraordinarily-detailed paintings on silk firsthand. A satvic feast for the eyes.
(There is a yoga class at 4:00pm between the workshop and Satsang.)
Pre-registration for the workshop appreciated.
