The Meeting Place
This painting "The Meeting Place" shows a series of meeting places. Those around the edge show meetings at a campfire with two people who have a shield and spear at their side. The lines to each campfire represent their journey. The central circle shows a group meeting with no spears or shields.
The corollary with mediation is that the central process involves people sitting down to have a discussion and leaving behind their defense and attack mechanisms.
The meeting is also on an equal footing with each person present having an equal part to play.
