This Week! Mystical Arts of Tibet (Free Event)

Mystical Arts of Tibet at The American Theatre in Hampton Virginia

If you haven’t seen one of these sand mandalas up close, it is worth seeing, and the process is amazing! During the creation of the mandala August 10-13, 2023 you can watch firsthand how the monks construct the mandala (and even try it out for yourself!).

Where: The American Theatre 125 Mellen Street, Hampton VA


  • Opening ceremony will be Thursday, August 10, 2023 from 12-6pm; ceremony at 12pm
  • The Sand Mandala will be created from 10am-6pm on Friday August 11th, and Saturday August 12th, and from 12-2pm on Sunday August 13th.
  • Completion of the Sand Mandala and the closing ceremony will be at 3pm on Sunday August 13th.

Cost: Free and open to the public

Description: Personal reflection and inspiration come to life as the Tibetan monks of Drepung Loseling Monastery return to create a sand-painted mandala, which is used as a tool for re-consecrating the earth and its inhabitants. As the mandala is created and then deconstructed, the sands are then taken to the water and from there it spreads throughout the world for planetary healing.
