MISSION STATEMENT



The Mandãla is a visionary planetary sanctuary in the desert wilderness of the Colorado Plateau. At its living heart dwells a revolving entity embodying cosmic order.














The Mandãla is proposed as a new cathedral for the world, stating spiritual sovereignty for each and all. Not the product of one culture or religion, it is temple to what is known as the Primordial Tradition — the common root of all religious traditions. Within the context of a new holistic paradigm, this spiritual lighthouse is offered as a guiding principle and beacon of hope for our future on this planet.


The Mandãla is a monument to the archetypal essence of the United States of America. It contributes to an Axis Americani uniting the people of the Americas under the banner of the pan-american archetype Quetzalcoatl. It claims to be one of the brightest architectural incarnation the Serpent-Jaguar has ever known.


The Mandãla is a living monument to the resacralization of the Earth, acknowledging man as part of, not apart from, nature.


The Mandãla serves as a facilitator of consciousness in our quest to become fully alive on this planet. At the individual level, the sanctuary provides a physical container for integrative growth and exploratory journeys — fulfilling the initiatory functions of ancient sacred sites. A template for the flowering of our human nature and a dark-bright node of the Gaian mind, it likewise shines its light upon the collective body of human consciousness.


The Mandãla is a time-keeping device that re-establishes the immanence of sacred time. Revolving in accordance to the tone and rhythm of the Tzolkin — the ‘no beginning no end’ sacred cycle of the Maya calendrical system — and its larger cycles, tuned to chief biological and astronomical cycles and built from living energies, it operates as a blueprint for the flow of creation: mapping our personal and collective evolution, our human and cosmic destiny.


The Mandãla is a spiritual power plant that belongs to the energetic grid of Earth’s ancient sacred sites — contributing to energies that are balancing for the planet and alleviating for humankind.


The Mandãla is conceived as a monument to the ‘End of Time’ (symbolic, not literal) commemorating the 13.0.0.0.0 landmark (corresponding to 12-21-2012) of the Maya Long Count calendar. Embodiement of the Lord of Time, it is ritual fulfilled: Time materialized anew. Built at a critical juncture in time, it marks 5200 years of recorded history and heralds the advent of post-history. It celebrates the path walked until now by all of Gaia and humankind.


The Mandãla appeals to the romantic grandeur of our soul. Evoking awe and wonderment, it is envisioned as a hidden treasure of the desert one that keeps alive the mystery of creation.


The Mandãla reaffirms the immanence of art as a sacred endeavor. Involving the best visionary artists of our times for a new artform marking an entrance into the posthistory of art and civilization.
