Kathryn Costa brings three of her passions together in this one workshop: Mandalas, SoulCollage®, and Greek Mythology. Her storytelling style brings these classic stories to life and relates them to everyday situations.
You'll explore the gifts of each Greek goddess while creating mandalas and/or SoulCollage® cards.
EXPERIENCE: No art experience required for creating SoulCollage® cards. Basic drawing skills recommended for the mandala art. Or you are welcome to follow your muse to create goddess art using any medium and style of your choosing, such as art journaling or mixed media.
This online workshop includes:
A live webinar session where you'll meet the goddesses through storytelling and art.
A quick quiz to discover the goddess archetypes that are showing up in you. You'll recognize these classic archetypes in yourself and the women in your life.
Insightful connections between the Great Round Series and the goddess archetypes. You’ll learn which goddess archetype will best guide you through the different challenges that you face in life.
Introductions to creating mandalas, SoulCollage®, and the Great Round with prompts and demonstrations to guide you in creating your own unique goddess art.

What a fun and different way to view and reflect upon my mandalas! I've always been intrigued by Greek goddesses and mythology, but had a hard time connecting. However, Kathryn's storytelling, energy, and passion for the Greek Goddesses (through mandalas) have left me inspired and excited to learn and create more!

"When I first learned about the Greek Goddess archetypes seven years ago, it opened up a whole new world to me. I learned a lot about myself, both my strengths and weaknesses. I also have a new perspective on the women in my life. So much so, that I feel like I have a better understanding and appreciation of them. It’s even helped me to navigate the workplace. The biggest takeaway has been the realization of how we can have different values, priorities, and tendencies – none of them better or less than, simply different. I can't wait to meet the goddesses within you!"
