VISIBLE PRAYER IN THE FORM OF A MANDALA
Presenter: Lynne Clarkin, AND (Associate of Notre Dame)


Mandala is a Sanskrit word meaning center or circle. It dates back to ancient times and has resonated throughout many traditions and cultures. This is a day to experience the process of creating visible prayer, your own prayer! We will begin with quiet prayer, allowing our being to enter into a place, neither here nor there. We will look at “a circle” drawn on paper helping us to focus and using the simple materials provided, such as colored pencils or pens or markers, you will begin! The way you arrange your space and the colors you choose will be your own. You are invited to pour out the mystery that is within – letting it flow and letting the unconscious speak! Ample time and a prayerful setting will add to your experiencing the process and we will be there to assist and to help you open the meaning of your own mandala, your visible prayer. There is a wonder in creation unfolding! A new way of birthing form into light! This is about process.

EXPRESSIVE CONTEMPLATION
Guide: Pat Curran , SNDdeN


Christian and Zen perspectives blend in this reflective day on the Ground of our Being. It will be a day when “all living things of the Earth open their eyes wide and look me in the eye.” (Fredrick Frank) and you return the gaze. Just bring a pad of paper and pencil for contemplating and drawing. No art ability is necessary to walk this sacred path.
