I’m excited to be embarking on a new art series that I’m calling “Chaos & Cosmos” where I’ll be exploring the mandala, the alchemy of self-transformation and our interconnectedness. Check out my beginnings here on Flickr:
“There is a thinking in primordial images, in symbols which are older than the historical man, which are inborn in him from the earliest times, eternally living, outlasting all generations, still make up the groundwork of the human psyche. It is only possible to live the fullest life when we are in harmony with these symbols; wisdom is a return to them.” ~ C.G. Jung
Primordial Spiral Mandala
Spring Compass Mandala by Jenn Grosso
As the wheel continues to turn, the balance moves from dark to light, sleep to growth. we move always in circles, spiraling forward. I welcome spring with this mandala, a compass of sorts.
Even though it might not quite look like spring yet… we can begin to feel it in the air. Hello spring I’m ready.
“There might be snow or ice on the ground, there might be harsh winds. The entire world is purifying itself, cleansing away the dead and dirty and moving toward balance. Shouldn’t we do the same? ~ The Lunar Tao
“I hope you will go out and let stories happen to you, and that you will work them, water them with your blood and tears and your laughter till they bloom, till you yourself burst into bloom.” ~ Clarissa Pinkola Estés
