About the Logo
The Celtic symbol of the Tripal Spiral, or the Treskelion, is connected to Tracy's Irish roots and represents holistic growth and evolution. As a spiritual symbol, the archetypal spiral can represent the inward path from the outer life to the inner life, and the expansive path from the inner life to the outer life. The triple spiral also represents the cycle of creativity and evolution. We move through the three stages of life, death and rebirth again and again. The symbol reminds us that life is a process of change and growth that requires a willingness to let go of patterns that no longer serve us, so that new patterns and possibilities can emerge. Finally, the symbol represents unity, connectedness and the integrated three-fold nature of things: body-soul-spirit, the trinity, and the three levels of consciousness.
