Mana is a concept in Austronesian languages that relates to the supernatural or spiritual forces that permeate the universe. Exact meanings vary regionally across cultures.

In a way, it is a link that connects the physical and spiritual forces of nature with the human experience of place and how this affects our cultural landscape.

Mana, present in the lightning storm, represents not just the power of nature and its ability to arouse awe; it also symbolically links the spiritual with the natural. It is how we experience the Divine on earth.
