Mandalas of the World: A Meditating & Painting Guide

Dahlke, Rudeiger

 This book is designed to induce enlightenment by experience rather than intellectualizing about it. It typifies Jung’s approach to individuation, in both text and action. Although the book contains a wealth of information about mandalas, the author insists they are only offered as possibilities and it is not necessary to understand them all, for "the goal of this path is not the understanding, but the experience of the Mandala" (p. 8). Its aim is to enable you to find your own Ariadne’s thread through the labyrinth of your own mandala." Each Mandala is at the same time Universe" (p. 14). The text covers mandalas of the world, the original history of mandalas, the role of color, nature mandalas, healing rituals, mandala games. For each point made in the text about mandalas an exercise is offered to the reader to choose to move from the center of the circle to the point that is everywhere. It appears to me to be a book that is well worth using not only for creating one’s own mandala but for ritual, healing, and connection.
