In Sanskrit, ‘mandala’ means ‘circle’, and in the Buddhist tradition these represent connection to life energy or deepest source. Humans respond instinctively to the sense of connection, to ourselves, to others, and to a source that’s both universal and eternal; it’s an instinct that crosses all boundaries.

I was listening to ‘A New Earth’ by Eckhart Tolle while I worked on this Mandala inspired piece, on the recommendation of my then 19 year old daughter, how great is that?! She had read ‘The Power of Now’ off my bookshelf, then moved on to this one.
