Grounding

In many traditions, there is a practice known as “grounding”, whereby a group of people sit in a circle, hold hands and send their energy around the circle through their hands, and with their intention, into the earth below and up through the tops of their heads, to the heavens. It is this powerful experience that I wanted to express in this mosaic. Here, ball chain represents the energy flowing from person to person, from each person down into the earth and up through their heads, like tree branches, to the sun.
