This new business I was creating came about because there was a need for more heart orientated connection in our town.
Townsville needed a non-competitive, big picture, wellness-based CommUNITY!
I had a vision of what this would look like, but what would I call it?
Months of ideas bouncing in my mind brought me back to some key words and meanings … mandalas, circles, unity, North Queensland weather, (having returned 11 years in North East USA) and the broader understanding of yoga!
So ‘mandala’ was the seed.
I have always loved mandalas, not just because of their beauty (especially in nature) but also because of the meaning they share.
The insightful wisdom of Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung, also shares my love for mandalas…
“I saw that everything, all paths I had been following, all steps I had taken, were leading back to a single point – namely, to the mid-point. It became increasingly plain to me that the mandala is the centre. It is the exponent of all paths. It is the path to the centre, to individuation. I knew that in finding the mandala as an expression of the self I had attained what was for me the ultimate.” ~ C.G.Jung
I also love how the word ‘mandala’ rolls smoothly over the tongue! 🙂
Ok … so what next? ~ The sun!
Our sun shines so brightly here, but more importantly, how can we help more people shine their unique inner light?
Yoga is a system of self-study that teaches us how to live life from the truth in our hearts.
This is how the name ‘Sun-dala’ was born.
So, where did the “h” come from? Well, ‘Sundala’ was already taken on the business registry so … ahhhh ~ let’s go with Sundalah!!
And there you have it! Sundalah became the name of Townsville’s new Health, Wisdom & Inspiration CommUNITY in August 2008.
