Practice Mindfulness by Drawing Mandalas Based on Ancient Rituals
The original use of the word mandala in a religious context was first used by Hindus and Buddhists. Today, the concept of a mandala resonates with spirituality and meditation as a mean to center the self in the present. However, Carl Jung was a pioneer in the use of a mandala to travel to the subconscious, which helps people to be aware of problems that need a solution. On the other hand, the appearance of mandala-like symbols in the religious context of other cultures brings to our attention that there is a cross-cultural pattern related to the circle. Dances and rituals can be used to inspire the creation of mandalas.
