This was one of the busier workshops and quite a wonderful group of people indeed. One of the things I find is by emphasising the importance of mindfulness that it invites people into really explore what is gong on for them. I was really encouraged by witnessing many members of the group just settle back into a reclining position and close their eyes as they delved deeper into their process.
Dunderry has a very special place in my heart. Even more now since I ran the Mandala Tipi at the Spirit of Folk festival which was amazing by the way. I am very grateful to Martin and Anette who run the centre there and have been so supportive to my work. Not just in opening the doors of their centre for me but in showing real interest and attending and diving deep into the mandala work too.
I also have to say there was such a beautiful sharing group and many themes were shared but the one that was most common was this sense of total Joy and feeling happy. It is as if there is a group mind at play. Some people connected back to that childlike playfulness from their youth when working with the materials, others liked the freedom of having no artistic dogma influencing them and others still just ended up in these beautiful happy joyful places....... it really was wonderful. Thanks to all for making it such a special day.
