The Mandorla is an ancient symbol that offers hope and healing
for the conflicts of today’s world. Two overlapping circles,
representing the interdependence of different worlds, form the
Mandorla - a shape revered by multiple cultures around the
planet. The Italian word for “almond”, Mandorla refers to the
union of opposites, such as Heaven and Earth, Masculine and
Feminine, Known and Unknown, and other paradoxical partners.
To step into the Mandorla is to move beyond “either-or”
thinking – even beyond ideas of common ground or compromise –
and stand in the tension of opposites long enough for
something new to emerge. In the realm of the Mandorla, the
whole truly yields something greater than the sum of its
parts: discovery and creativity.
