The Language of Symbol

The language of symbol is of the felt senses of the body, of the numinous, of the spirit, and of the heart’s yearning.

 

It transmits meaning in a way that touches us deeply, and leads us to wisdom.

 

When we are drawn to a particular symbol, it often signals a transition we are about to undergo, announcing its arrival and preparing us for it, and directing us toward the inner work that can help us change, deepen, grow.
