Yantra von Dr. Rotraut Wurst

A Yantra is a ritual graphic representation in Hinduism and Tantra, which is used as a tool for meditation.

A former client gave me his pencil drawing as a gift at the end of the coaching. By drawing a single letter that he repeated like a mantra, he became calm. The kind of meditative drawing supported breathing and relaxation. Aggressions went away. Thus, “stress relaxation” occurred.

I asked him if I could use his yantra and change it. It was now mine, he said. Then, the yantra got more letters, eventually the whole alphabet in different colors. Maybe a rainbow, summer lightning, or dawn?
