About The Event

Patricia’s mandalas are vibrant and colourful mixed-media. Images that reflect her personal life journey.
“A mandala is a sacred circle that holds a spiritual essence.“ - Robert Thurman, Buddhist scholar
In a still place within us, we learn who we really are. Through dreams, meditation, imagination ; through pain, loss and grief, images arise from our soul. If we open and receive and share them as best we can, while there is still time in this world, we are connected and become whole.
