" I loved this book which was a Christmas gift from my mom. I'd never colored mandalas before but they are really enjoyable and I loved the different designs " said.

" This adult coloring book is full of fun mandala designs to color. Bring out the spiritual artist in you while practicing mindfulness. " said.

" I didn't buy the book for coloring, but for ideas on how to design circular designs in quilting. There are plenty of ideas, which, when simplified and enlarged will work great in the use of circles in quilts. " said.

"Wow, who’d have thought coloring mandalas would be so satisfying. I’m kind of amused and amazed. I started my mandala hobby because I had read that it would help inspire my creative side by opening up the right side of the brain. Of course I am naturally so right brained anyway, this probably wasn’t necessary.

I’ve found though that drawing mandalas is sort of memorizing. Drawing them tends to alleviate my stress, and clear my mind of clutter. I only do them for 15 minutes to a half an hour a day and they always put me in a lovely, mellow frame of mind. Many people use them for meditation, which I can easily see since their very roundness pulls me in.

I read on Wikipedia that Carl Jung believed that the urge to make mandalas emerges during moments of intense personal growth. Their appearance indicates a profound re-balancing process is underway in the psyche. The result of the process is a more complex and better integrated personality.

Isn’t that cool? I’m actually going to go buy a compass and start drawing mandalas myself. Yay!

Anyway, back to my review. The mandalas in this book are just the perfect balance of complex, but not too complex. The paper is white and sturdy enough that it doesn’t get torn up while you’re drawing with colored pencil. I even did one with colored ball-point pens and still turned out good. Of course I didn’t like it as much, because hey, colored pencil is the bomb. Especially if you’ve got Prismacolor, which is the best!

This is a nice mandala book. :D
