Heart of Green is thrilled to announce the creation of a Sand Mandala at the Exploratorium in its new home at Pier 15 in San Francisco from July 3 to 6.
The mandala will be crafted by hand by monks from the Gaden Shartse Dokhang Monastery in Southern India.
The sand mandala is being presented in collaboration with Sacred Stream, a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing the wisdom of ancient healing and spiritual traditions to modern society. The ultimate goal of the monks’ sand mandala is to cultivate compassion and peace in the world.
The opening ceremony will take place on Thursday July 3 at 10 am. The closing ceremony will be held on Sunday July 6 at 1:30 pm. Because the Exploratorium is hosting, there will be opportunities for the public to participate and even practice with the monks’ tools. Each day, the mandala will become more elaborate. I can’t tell you what happens at the end. You will have to see it live! Tibetan Sand Mandala at the Exploratorium
