Mystic Tool #5: Mandala Coloring as Meditation
How to use Mandala Coloring pages to find calm and soothe a stressed out mind/body
Creating mandalas allows your mind to become very calm and focused. It is very much a meditative process.

“[A Mandala] is a concrete symbol of it’s creator’s absorption into sacred center. In its most elevated form, the sacred circle mirrors an illumined state of consciousness through a symbolic pattern--making the invisible visible. It is meant to draw the creator and viewer into an encounter with animating sources of numinous energy. The Navajo call this center a “spiritual place of emergence for sacred imagery.” Judith Cornell
