Intrinsically beautiful, the intricate round patterns of mandalas are wonderful tools for self-reflection, meditation, and self-therapy. In this unique workbook, you will encounter basic principle mandalas that you can color and use in various rituals and exercises. Despite the associations of coloring with childhood, coloring mandalas has remarkable therapeutic effects--and it's fun too. Use mandalas to treat depression, midlife crises, and even physical complaints. Harmonize your flow of energy, improve your concentration and relaxation, and gain strength from your own center. By coloring, a person accepts the orderliness of the mandala, which seems to help the soul to create order as well and to place everything where it belongs. It teaches a degree of patience and helps make difficult issues seem simpler. Through mandala therapy you can intuitively regain perspective on what really matters in life, and focus on what is essential to you.
