Memories Unlocked

Mandalas are circular religious and spiritual symbols, which can function as important depictions of cosmology, experiences of the divine, or metaphysical understandings of the self.

Mandalas in Hinduism and Buddhism can represent world and foundational mythologies, whereas the mandalas of Hildegard von Bingen, a Benedictine mystic, were painted depictions of her sacred visions.

Even Carl Jung, the famous Swiss psychiatrist, found use of the mandalas helpful in his own practice, understanding them to be “the psychological depiction of the totality of the self.”1 Mandalas can also be powerful and potent storytellers, which share individual and collective narratives to present and future generations.
