Mthembu lodge is configured on the circle. The circle plays a meaningful part in shaping our world. Circles hold and contain energy, allowing circles of growth to exist within. Circles represent notions of wholeness and perfection. Similar to the Mthembu clan, a circle is timeless – it has no beginning and has no end.
