Each of us has a natural receptivity to the principles of the mandala: beauty and harmony, interconnectedness and wholeness. These principles are directly revealed within the world of nature and within the human heart.
The time has come to explore the connection between the inner and outer environments, to develop appreciation in the place of aggression. Nourished by beauty, we can recover balance and openness. As the flower of the heart unfolds, joyful compassionate action comes forth naturally and bears fruit that we can harvest and share. Once we heal the human heart, we will be empowered to heal the planet. In protecting nature, we will be serving the highest human values, the flowering of the full potential of humanity.
