The objective of an altered book is to not only transform an existing book into a creative work of art but this process also affords us the opportunity to explore the "stories within" as one would explore the stories in a book.
"During the sessions Virginia spent with our class, students were engaged and persistent...I saw the level of engagement grow over the course of the five sessions, noticing a shift in something as seemingly subtle as the sound level between the first and last class." - Classroom Teacher: Ellen Franz

"The word "mandala" is from the classical Indian language of Sanskrit. Loosely translated to mean "circle," a mandala is far more than a simple shape. It represents wholeness, and can be seen as a model for the organizational structure of life itself--a cosmic diagram that reminds us of our relation to the infinite, the world that extends both beyond and within our bodies and minds."
- Mandala Project
"Manifesting unique Mandalas (Hands on over 5 week period) Utilizing meditation, sensory awareness, energy centers (chakras) and relaxation techniques with the power of intention / power of sound. Using guided imagery for personal and interpersonal well–being for body/mind.

Personal Mandala with Intention for: Environment, Diversity, Social Justice, Global Issues, Peace. Draw a Mandala on black paper with white pencils and we will use the scale of RAINBOW light by adding color to black/ white Mandala. We will use our non-dominant handwriting to dialogue with sub-personalities, to assist with inner conflicts and deepen positive self-regard and finish with writing a poem about our Mandalas.
