Join the Circle at The Quogue Wildlife Refuge


art for mindfulness


The design of the mandala is visually appealing so as to absorb the mind in such a way that irritating thoughts are unable to get through and a spiritual essence surrounds the individual observing the mandala, which in turn allows the individual a higher consciousness or awareness, like being in a meditative space. This allows the busy mind to take a break while the creative mind is allowed to run free.

Enjoy a creative evening while unwinding in the calming atmosphere of the sound. You will be guided through the process of creating  a unique mandala and bringing your personal awareness inward.  This painting process is layered with techniques to help let go of fears, to be free and play, set positive intentions, and to quiet the mind allowing space for peace, love and harmony.

"My mom and I took Julie's mandala workshop on our first day at the Sound View. Our expectations were exceeded beyond anything we could have imagined. Julie was so kind and patient with us, and her passion for meditation and art got us hooked right away! It was also refreshing to know that there is no wrong or right way to make a mandala and that each is unique to the artist's own vision, which became a lot of fun to experiment with colors and shapes and tap into our own creative ideas. The setting in which the class took place was also incredibly beautiful and calming - in a bright, airy room right near the water listening to the waves crash on the shore while the sun sets on the horizon. It literally can't get any better than that! Julie's workshop truly made me and

my mother feel like we were artists and now we have beautiful pieces of artwork that will forever remind us of our first trip to Greenport."

Thanks, Julie!!" - Heather A.

I am writing this review to give Thanks and Appreciation to Julie O'Daly for an Inspirational, Calming, and Creative Evening of Art and Meditation.

I attended the session with my 14 yr old daughter who loves art and music.  Julie was welcoming and very Giving in Sharing her Knowledge of Art and Meditation skills.  The session was held in the Meditation room at the SoundView and offered a light airy space with an Absolute Breathtaking view of the Long Island Sound.   The Art we Created was not only Beautiful but also reflected a Personal touch.   I highly recommend taking Julie's Art & Meditation as part of your SoundView Inn Experience.  It definitely was the Highlight of Ours! - S. Wilkonski - Lynbrook, LI 

Without giving away the details of the class experience, it was simply a very connected and personal experience. Julie is very knowledgeable in the art form and compassionate in her teaching and guidance. She offered a beautiful centering prior to class which helped me find the deeper meaning and connect with the art I was about to paint. I will forever connect to this piece I made, and am so happy to have had this experience.

I highly recommend her classes. - Eynat Naor

"The mandala class was wonderful! I am not a great painter but it lifted my spirit, I felt so good when I was finished. Looking forward to my next one.

Thanks Julie " - Doreen
