Pattern and Symmetry

THEME: Pattern and Symmetry
MEDITATION: Mandala Absorption
INTERACTIVE PRACTICE: Mapping Balanced Practice

The human mind loves patterns. Symmetrical geometric shapes are the purest visual expression of pattern, and meditating on them can deliciously satisfy our pattern-seeking nature. For this reason, staring at geometric shapes can be deeply entrancing. In this week’s meditation we will concentrate on a geometric meditation object called a mandala or yantra. In the second half, we’ll work with a mandala image and art supplies to express our aspirations and challenges for a balanced meditation practice.
