Twice a day the foreshore of the River Thames in London is exposed by the outgoing tide. Each tide as it recedes leaves behind all sorts of fragments, pebbles and stones. Since before Roman times, Londoners have shed their waste in to the river, and over centuries this has been weathered and washed by the tide. Our ancestor’s river-borne trash has been picked over by generations of so called ‘mudlarkers’ in search of some long-forgotten treasure.
Mandalas have an equally long history. A contemplative circular art form that carries meaning, often made from sand, pebbles, leaves, flowers and found objects. Mandalas are a collaborative process of making the mandala circle expand, is an invitation to contemplate, be calm and present and meditate.
Traditionally, once finished mandalas are swept away representing the impermanence of life and the continuous process of renewal Watch / join meditation teacher Mel Sutton as she brings found object from the Thames foreshore and makes a Mudlark Mandala.
The Mudlark Mandala making will streamlined live online via Zoom and if possible made immediately available on Team London Bridge's website. This event is brought to you by Team London Bridge.
