All about Spirals

The spiral is the most widely recognized and repeated symbol. across cultures. Jung wrote extensively about spirals, as did Joseph Campbell.

A common design element in the natural world, spirals can symbolize our journey to our higher self or the ebb and flow of energy.

Spirals are a prominent symbol in early Christianity. Take the floor of the Chartres Cathedral in France, for example. It is here that the pilgrim can use the labyrinth as a form of meditative prayer, tracing the spiral by slowly walking or crawling its length.

“Your sacred space is where you can find yourself again and again.” Joseph Campbell

This week, I bring you 13 captivating images of spirals:
