Yantra Coloring Meditation Workshop

Join the alluring yogini Sarah Tomlinson on this auspicious harvest full moon, to harness the creativity of fall with a 90-minute Yantra coloring meditation workshop.  Grab your coloring book (click link to buy: Coloring Yantras: 24 Sacred Symbols for Meditation, Healing, Abundance, and Creativity) and colored pencils and a cup of tea for an early evening of coloring, fellowship, and Yantras.

Yantras are geometric symbols that contain the specific energy of a planet or deity. Each Yantra imparts a healing energy that you can harness in your life. Working with Yantras connects you with these ancient teachings in a way that provides great healing in today’s world. Yantras remind us of the places in ourselves we have forgotten, like our greatness, our capacity to love, our strength, or effortless abundance, and they mirror back to us their positive qualities, thus we are whole again.

“More than a coloring book, this collection of art teaches us the meaning of Sacred Yantras, encouraging us to use them as empowerment symbols to create the life we want with deep respect for the ancient science of Yantra. For you, your altar, your children, your family art time; we love the moments of art-making together with Sarah’s precious work.” – Elena Brower
