The Gracious Circle

Mandalas, often employed in meditation practices, establish through art a sacred space or spiritual cosmos.  The mandala, usually circular, is an ancient, metaphysically significant form found in Hindu, Buddhist, and Judaeo-Christian traditions.  Rooted in nature and the human psyche, the mandala signifies, among other things, completion and fulfillment.  One may find at the form’s center a circle, cross, square, diamond, representation of a deity, or other symbol.  Psychoanalyst Carl Jung, who viewed the mandala as a representation of the unconscious self, noted that some of his patients reported mandala dreams as they neared the completion of their therapeutic goals.
