Mandalas call to your soul. You feel them pull on the weave of the fabric of your Being and more often than not, you don’t know why.
This is because the mandala is an archetypal form which resides in the collective unconscious. It is both a representation of the cosmos and an expression of it, brought to life by Life itself.
I’m always amazed at how many people have fixed opinions on what mandalas are, and what they’re for – and for each person with a fixed opinion, there are also plenty for whom this powerful archetypal symbol has simply passed by…
You see, mandalas are a symbolic language, and they help us grasp and express the existential forces that we find running through the currents of our lives. They allow us to fathom the otherwise unfathomable.
Learning how to create them is a gift that answers the call of a sometimes unrecognised yearning from the depths of our very Being.
