Hands-On Mandala Design and Construction

Each December, the Open Space Visitor Center hosts the creation of a Mandala made of different kinds of grains and seeds.  Volunteers contribute to the design and build the Mandala. The Mandala remains in place for one week. Materials for the Mandala consist of seeds and grains which can be eaten by birds, composted or can quickly biodegrade.

“Describing both material and non-material realities, the mandala appears in all aspects of life: the celestial circles we call earth, sun, and moon, as well as conceptual circles of friends, family, and community. ”

A mandala is...
An integrated structure
