This workshop explores the art of drawing and painting yantras, along with the deeply meditative experience a yantra can offer to those on a path of self-discovery. Especially for Westerners whose education typically emphasizes the left hemisphere of the brain, drawing and colouring these sacred, ancient diagrams acts as a balance (as do music, dance, and all of the arts) to nourish imagination, faith, calm, and awareness.
Samantha Salvat will introduce you to the Ganesh (also spelt Ganesa or Ganesha and known as Ganapati, Vinayaka and Pillaiyar) is the Lord of Good Fortune who provides prosperity, fortune and success. He is the Lord of Beginnings and the Remover of Obstacles, at both levels of the material and spiritual.
