    Closing Ceremony and Hike

    Closing Ceremony and Hike
    Traditionally most sand mandalas are deconstructed shortly after their completion, as a metaphor of the impermanence of life. The sands are swept up and placed in an urn; to fulfill the function of healing, half is distributed to the audience at the closing ceremony, while the remainder is carried to a nearby body of water, where it is deposited.  Participants may join the monks as they hike to disperse the sand.
