Video: Cover Artist Allison Petroski 

Transformation is Allison Petroski's record of a personal epiphany that occurred in a public place. The piece is a mandala, an art form in Hindu and Buddhist traditions containing sacred geometry and expressing the vitality of balance. Through the practice of Thetahealing, Petroski has spoken to hundreds of people, and the energy she's felt from them inspired her first mandalas, requiring 30 to 40 hours to draw. Petroski explains, "ThetaHealing works on uncovering deeply buried faulty belief systems and patterns that may be governing your life, providing miraculous transformations and healing once the nonserving beliefs are identified and released. It isn't voodoo—anyone can do it." Transformation is a representation of the artist's own energy. It required a total of 300 hours to draw. —Melissa Nau
