THE ARTFUL MANDALA COLORING BOOK: CREATIVE DESIGNS FOR FUN AND MEDITATION is the first coloring book that is uniquely designed to induce calm and spark creativity. Coloring books for adults have been taking the world by storm recently, with many new coloring fans reporting that they find the simple creativity to help relieve the stress of their busy, technology-reliant lives.
The mandala is an ancient symbol that is used in the Buddhist tradition for meditation. Its intricate designs are inspired by nature, and even just gazing at a delicate, beautiful mandala can help channel your thoughts away from everyday concerns. Author Cher Kauffman explains that coloring these mandala shapes taps into your creativity without the stress or commitment of more involved art forms.
“Even if you only have five minutes, you can create something beautiful and therapeutic,” she says. Coloring therapy is perfect for moms, senior citizens, and anyone looking for a way to tap into the naturally meditative powers of color and pattern quickly and easily.
