Mandala Sand Painting Exhibition Opening Ceremony
October 16 @ 1:00 pm
Hosted by The Center for Faith & Spirituality at the Stone Barn
Celebrate the formation of The Center for Faith and Spirituality at Saint Joseph’s, which will provide the space and opportunities to explore spiritual development in all aspects of life. The public is welcome during this mystical art of Tibet live exhibition by the monks of Drepung Loseling Monastery. Over the course of four days, the monks will painstakingly construct a traditional sand-painted mandala, an ancient tool for healing the earth and its inhabitants.
Public is welcome. The Stone Barn is located across the street and just past the college entrance.
A group from UGP will be traveling together for both the opening and closing events. If you would like to carpool to the opening, please meet at UGP at 12:15 p.m. on Monday, October 16, or meet us there for the event at St. Joe’s at 1 p.m.
