At Golden Thread we aim to make the invisible, visible by creating an atmosphere which allows people to be creative and to simply ‘be’.
Through the use of Sound Therapy and Mandalas we endeavour to create an environment which allows people to cultivate the qualities of calmness, relaxation and reflection which in turn relieves stress, tension, mental and physical agitation. Our ultimate aim is to assist people to find the pathway back into their heart and to enhance their mental and emotional wellbeing.
Hi, and thank you for visiting.
I first came across woven mandalas in 2012 whilst traveling through Argentina and my homeland Colombia in a quest to learn more about my ancestral roots. Initially I was drawn to sacred geometry, colour and the inviting meditative process of weaving a Ojo de Dios (God’s Eye) mandala. I soon began to understand the rich cultural history and symbolism in Native American mandalas which are called "Ojo de Dios” in Spanish (God's eye). This lead me into learning about the Huichol culture from Mexico, discovering that this symbol is inherited in Native American, Tibetan, Mongolian, Persian, Inca, Nasa, Turkish and many more cultures around the world. In my search I found a common denominator in all these cultures; the importance of the heart as the centre of the human being. Ever since I had a strong yearning to understand more about my heart and intuition, for which I have worked with mandalas in different modalities such as weaving, painting and mosaicking .
The more I understand the importance of connecting to my heart, the more I see the thread which binds it all, therefore I am moved to share this understanding with others. As I discover and connect with my own intuition, it motivates me to assist others to also develop their HEART and to connect with their own centre of gravity. On the other hand Sound Healing appeared in my life, with great influence of my brother and his love for music. I began to explore the unspoken and jet most universal language; sound. Sound Healing is a vehicle which I use to access that heart space which I believe we are all yearning for in this world of incessant distractions. Golden Thread is a project which began in 2015 under the name Wiwa Mandalas, today transforming and evolving, inspired by the universal knowledge of Sound Healing, Mandalas & Sacred Geometry. If you are sharing this truth, I would love to be in touch with you.
