Lava Mandala (Big Island, Hawaii)

On a full moon night, on the Big Island of Hawaii many years ago, I journeyed out to see a new lava flow from the Kilauea volcano. The experience of being next to flowing lava to me was one the most powerful experiences I have ever had. It feel like I witnessed our Earth give birth to itself. It was amazing…

The heat was more intense than you might imagine too. It hurt to take this photo because it was so hot. 100% worth it though… I even touched the lava with my bare hand. It burned me… but at least now I can say that I’ve touched molten lava with my bare skin. I’m not sure I’d recommend that experience.

To me this mandala feels like the center of creation… burning strong with the incredibly potent energy of the universe.
