A mandala is a traditional offering created through the power of imagination. The entire universe is visualized as transformed into a pure land, and then mentally offered to the Buddhas. A beautiful and creative practice, it is an extraordinary method for generating positive energy and good fortune.

For successful meditation and authentic spiritual development, it is vital that we learn to open a window into our mind through which the inspiration and energy of the holy beings can enter. 


This course will introduce the practice of making mandala offerings and show how to integrate the practice into our spiritual life.


These teachings are followed by an optional Guru Yoga Mandala Offering Retreat, dates coming soon.

Making mandala offerings is a creative practice that harnesses our pure imagination and our good heart. These offerings are a powerful method to accumulate a vast collection of merit or positive energy.  Merit is the main cause of all of our success in daily life and in our spiritual practice.
