The Meaning of the Flower of Life
It depicts how all life comes from one singular source - represented by the circle in the middle of the pattern. There is believed to be a secret symbol hidden within the Flower of Life symbol, which is said to hold the most significant and sacred patterns of the universe. This mystical symbol can be found in almost all major religions in the entire world. The Flower of Life is said to be over 6,000 years old and is composed of several concentric, equal, overlapping circles. It is said to contain vital information on the secrets of the universe and all living things.

Art supplies to bring: Ruler, compass,  pencil, favorite colors (pencils, watercolor, gouache). If you plan to paint bring brushes and palate.
