    That is pretty Muse. But I've never understood what a mandala is. Could you explain it to me?

    I can try, a mandala comes from the Indian tradidtion, and the word loosely translates to circle, it is meant to be a spiritual device which helps one focus in thier meditation.

    It represents wholeness, and can be seen as a model for the organizational structure of life itself--a cosmic diagram that reminds us of our relation to the infinite, the world that extends both beyond and within our bodies and minds.

    Thank you D-M. I did not realize they had a spiritual element to it. I thought it was some sort of pattern.

    Mandala healing is not one of the most well known forms of alternative healing. However, the integration of a mandala image into a meditation session can certainly boost the effectiveness of the process. That is why the concept of mandala healing deserves a closer look.
