On the occasion of a workshop on radiesthesia in Austria, I happen to discover Mandalas, immediately realize their therapeutic impact and start drawing large-scale intuitive circular pictures. It is only afterwards that I find the explanation of this kind of drawing in the works of the Swiss psychotherapist C.G. Jung, who has introduced the Eastern, Buddhist form of the Mandala to the West but also explored and studied the freer, so-called intuitive Mandala.
The feedback of friends make me aware that the healing qualities of Mandalas are not only unfolded by producing these circular shapes, but through their vibrations and resonances they also trigger off self-healing processes in the observer.
More on the topic of Mandalas in my text (GERMAN): „What are Mandalas? Why do I create Mandalas?“
