Mandala provides readers with a profound tool for constructing and cultivating a personal spiritual path and contemplative practice from the world’s collective spiritual traditions, using one’s own questions and spiritual learning styles to find the answers and right path for them.  It provides the means, not the answers – those we must find ourselves.  Through the InterSpiritual Mandala one explores one’s own archetypal approaches to spirituality, one’s own questions about the spiritual path, and finds the practices, teachers and traditions that best suit our particular needs.
