SPIRAL SYMBOL

Like the movement produced by a helix, the spiral symbolizes both the movement and the continuity of states of existence, the progressive evolution of levels of consciousness or degrees of initiation acquired little by little ... Rotation and ascent, revolution and elevation, these are the movements that seem to animate the Universe.

The 2 spirals, one white, the other black, turn in opposite directions and recall the symbol of Yin and Yang. "In Chinese philosophy, these are the different components of a duality, which are at the same time, opposite and complementary.
