Using millions of grains of colored sand, the monks will create an elaborate and ancient Healing Medicine Sand Mandala. Each day over a 3 day period, the community is invited from 9 AM until 12 noon and 2 PM until 5 PM, to watch the monks build a sand mandala that has been recreated for over 2500 years. When the sand painting is complete, the monks deliberately sweep away the painting, offering half the sand to the community members who are there at the closing ceremony and then offering the other half of the sand to the earth. During the day, talks, a children’s mandala table and other events are planned. There will also be a Dharma Store where various items can be purchased.
