Bay Area artist Nancy Hom will lead participants in constructing a large mandala that will incorporate photos, prayers and offerings for deceased friends and loved ones. This guided, hands-on workshop will be an exploration of creatively working with loss and bereavement in a positive way. No prior art experience is necessary. Nancy Hom has been a student of the Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche since 2007 and is co-director of the SF Bay Area chapter of Nalandabodhi. She is an award-winning artist, writer, curator and community organizer. Since 2012, she has created 15 floor mandalas on various topics, three of them specifically related to death and healing. Refreshments will be served at a break mid-way through. Stay tuned for details to follow.
