A mandala is a circle that becomes a container to hold your ideas and emotions, it is a circle of interconnection. You’ll  listen to the history and deep meanings of this wonderful concept through Giada’s words: she will explore mandalas from nature to religion to art and more. Mandalas are one of the most ancient art forms created by human beings. Rock carvings and stone circles found all over the world have the circular form and its variations such as spirals, crosses, concentric circles. Some archeologists think that these circles symbolise the sun or the rhythms of seasons,  Mother Earth or a shamanic point of entry into a spiritual dimension.

Painting mandalas can help you focus your attention. That’s why they’re a great exercise for calming down when you’re stressed. Here are some benefits of mandalas:

  • The way all the shapes and designs are laid out brings a feeling of balance.

  • They bring peace and tranquillity.

  • Looking at them will give you a feeling of calmness and balance.

  • They help with concentration.

  • They make it easier to be mindful.

  • They let your creativity flow.

  • The way all the shapes and designs are laid out brings a feeling of balance.

When your wonderful work will be completed, you will be guided through a shamanic meditation to reconnect with your inner centre. Shamanic meditation is simple, even for beginners. It is similar to eastern meditation practices, but it doesn’t concentrate on leaving behind the stress of daily life. Instead, it focuses on using a spiritual connection to heal these worldly concerns in their roots.
