From early childhood, we begin to construct a notion of ourselves along with a particular world view. Later, when our life experience is at odds with the perceptions and conceptualizations that arise from these fabrications, we experience suffering of some kind. In many instances, these notions of ourselves have become fixed and rigid. We forget that what we take as solid and real today were often the working assumptions of a child, and often based on insufficient information, faulty logic and/or misperception. Yet today, their origins are buried deep in our unconscious, and continue to have an impact on our thoughts and feelings.
In this experiential workshop, we explore the notion of the self as a mandala as understood by the depth psychologist Carl Jung. However, our focus will be on understanding and transforming the five primal energies associated with the mandala into their corresponding wisdom essence. As such, our focus will be on identifying and transforming our habitual patterns of being in and seeing the world. In this sense, the mandala is a metaphor for the deconstruction and reformation of the self and our personal cosmology. By shifting beliefs, notions of our self, and of our patterns of perception and conceptualization, we provide the ground for developing alternative and healthier perspectives of our self and the world. Through a process of immersing onself into the sacred space of the mandala environment, or "living the sacred circle", you can engender a life-changing shift in consciousness.
Change your expectations and change your world. Re-vision yourself and begin living the light!

He explains "In late 1995, I began a journey of deeper spiritual exploration after a series of traumatic personal events rather close in time. My journey began with Reiki training and studying with Elizabeth Stratton, a healer and founder of the Touching Spirit Center� in Litchfield, Connecticut. Serendipitously, I also became a more serious student of Kyabje Gehlek Rimpoche of the Jewel Heart Buddhist Center in Ann Arbor, MI with whom I have studied with less consistently since the early 1990's.�
