…the search for right images in our time needs to include images that enable us to grasp an intuitive sense of the whole in ways that link the particular and the universal, holding each accountable to the other….mentoring communities serve well when they nurture an imaginal complex of integrating symbols that grasp the dynamic of dissolution and recomposition.
–Sharon Daloz Parks

    I feel drawn into this image. The warm lavender background, but especially the enfolding of the arms. I positioned my own arms likewise and felt the embrace – gentle and comforting. I noticed the three fingers visible and make the trinity connection. The style of painting the robe with a feathery texture imbues the whole figure with the power (strong but gentle) of the one eagle feather above.
