Event Description

The word ‘mandala’ is from the classical Indian language of Sanskrit. Loosely translated to mean ‘circle,’ a mandala is far more than a simple shape. It represents wholeness, and can be seen as a model for the organizational structure of life itself--a cosmic diagram that reminds us of our relation to the infinite, the world that extends both beyond and within our bodies and minds.

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.
