Mandalas are often used in therapy. Making mandalas as a form of art therapy can reduce anxiety, tension, and overall stress.
Mandalas are Buddhist devotional images often deemed a diagram or symbol of an ideal universe. Originally, mandalas were produced in Tibet, India, Nepal, China, Japan, Bhutan, and Indonesia and date from the 4th century to the present.
Mandalas, meaning “circles” in Sanskrit, are sacred symbols that are used for meditation, prayer, healing and art therapy for both adults and children.
Mandalas are traditionally used in many eastern spiritual traditions as a tool to aid meditation.
In western culture, mental health counselors often use mandalas as a form of stress relief, a tool for art therapy, and as a meditative exercise.
Mandalas have been shown in clinical studies to boost the immune system, reduce stress and pain, lower blood pressure, promote sleep and ease depression.
In addition to the workshop which took place at our Center, the video tutorials and the support group in Line was developed
to help women to deal with stress which appears when using technologies and teaching how to use mobile phones for education and search of useful information.
The workshop was enjoyed by our women and they have shared the materials they got from it with their friends and children.
