“A mandorla is that almond-shaped segment that is made when two circles partly overlap…
The mandorla has a wonderfully healing and encouraging function.
The place where light and dark begin to touch is where miracles arise. This middle place is the mandorla.
The mandorla is the place of poetry…All good stories are mandorlas.
An artist makes a mandorla with form, color, visual tension.
A musician does the same with rhythm, form, and tone.
A mandorla can also be danced.
The mandorla is not the place of neutrality or compromise; it is the place of the peacock’s tail and rainbows.”
–Robert Johnson, Owning Your Own Shadow
