watercolour on paper, 2022
I created this mandala as a calling in of sacred space during a time of holding palliative care for my Mum.
It was a place for me to return and meditate upon the opening portal between Life and Death that began to feel stronger as Mum's time of passing edged closer.
The pattern is a Torus, a dynamic design of energy, pulsing both into and away from the centre, offering the possibility of moving through from one state of being to another. In some ways, all mandalas hold this quality, but the torus particularly so.
A full spectrum of rainbow colours invoke a sense of vibrant protection. How wonderful to be enfolded in this light, held and cherished, as Dolphin spirit guides swim you home through beautiful starlit waters.
