Anne-Marie Moore travelled to India to visit a Tibetin society in 2005 and will present workshops on her experiences and knowledge gained there.


These workshops are part of the FACE/Ansisters creative festival August 2005. See our programme for more details.

Mandalas Workshop

Number of participants: 20 max

Mandala: centring: finding who we are in the Universe.

A Mandala is a circle. The circle is an old and universal symbol. It has power and motion in both the physical and spiritual realms. It is the archetypal symbol for wholeness.

Mandalas are part of art and nature. In art the circle can be a comfort zone. It is centering and helps focus.

A mandala tends to create itself, it has a life of its own and emerges in spite of ourselves. It is the communication between our inner and outer worlds.


Bonolo Botshelo Screening

The abuse of children is a scourge in our country. In 2004 two women united to raise awareness about Child Abuse. This culminated in a collaborative Exhibition of Art Dolls illustraing the effects of abuse, worked on by various women artists. This exhibition is now housed in the Teddy Bear Clinic environs. The Presentation takes viewers through the exhibition with open discussion after the viewing.


Prayer flags workshop

20 people max

From high up on the Tibetan plateau the wind blows blessings into the world. The couriers of these blessings are brightly coloured banners called prayer flags. Make such a blessing to use in your own environment and spread blessings to the world.


Meditation Stone Workshop

Number of participants: 20 max

Meditation stone: to hold in the palm of our hand and cherish.

How many children am I?
With all my children’s children.
Love makes me plural.

We pray for young people growing up in today’s world:
For the bewildered and seeking-that they may find faith in you.
For the abandoned that they might find spheres of usefulness
and arms of love.
For those who have been led into paths of anarchy
and violence-that they may find a way of escape.
May the care of our own be wise and just.
May the love for our own families lead us to compassion for
others in need.
WE pray for ourselves.


Sound of Children's Voices

Tibetan children are being moved to India for safety. Their journey is long and dangerous. In Dharamsala they are housed in a haven of safety until they are placed into schools and safe homes. These children are constantly at risk and are themselves and endangered group. This audio visual is a small overview of their journey.
