The Seashell Mandala - Again
Posted on July 10, 2018
This Litha, we repeated last year’s ritual of the seashell mandala, since last year, one of our circle was not able to participate in it. It was again beautiful and powerful. When you use things of beauty as the base of your ritual, the ritual is raised to an even higher level.
We were indoors for a number of reasons -- mobility issues for some, heat issues for others and mosquito issues for all. The mosquitoes are not called NJ’s air force for nothing.
Last year, someone blew a conch shell to start the ceremony, but we didn’t have the right kind of couch shell, so we used a windchime.
What struck me was how similar the 2 creations are. Almost as though the mandalas were designing themselves using our hands.
