This mandala represents the element of air. The ritual space is a circle in the fresh, charged air of the mountains at dawn.

The fall season brings us the harvest, abundance, the subtle patterns of life, breath, wind, intellect and the ever present Divine Mind.

Gratitude is present in the American Indian theme. It is symbolized by the little Indian in prayer, attuned with the white dove of peace and his passionate, victorious spirit guide depicted in blue with his chakras glowing.
