"A mandorla is that almond-shaped segment that is made when two circles overlap....The mandorla begins the healing of the split. The overlap generally is very tiny at first, only a sliver of a new moon; but it is a beginning. As time passes, the greater the overlap, the greater and more complete is the healing. The mandorla binds together that which was torn apart and made unwhole...
...there are links between the things we have always thought of as opposites... a mandorla is a prototype of conflict resolution, it is the art of healing, if you will...
...take this and take that - and make a mandorla of them."
