Artist Marieke to show you how to explore the relationship between imagination and your creative expression through the journey of making your own mandala that will reflect your intentions and dreams for the new year and the new you!

Here painting techniques are secondary as we learn to turn our gaze inwards through specific imagery exercises as a way to see the true imagination at play rather than approaching creativity from the mind’s intellectual perception. Therefore allowing us to by pass the rational mind to access and bring through our creativity from it’s truer source in a way that is joyful and natural.
