Meditation isn’t just about sitting quietly thinking about nothing. You can be mindful, in the moment, and meditate even through coloring a mandala. At first I felt the need to “rush” until I was able to forget time and everything else on my mind. Then I felt like a kid again coloring, then the peace and quiet finally came as I slowed down and paid attention to the marker strokes (next time I’ll use colored pencils I think) and itty bitty coloring spaces.
If you’re looking for some neat mandalas to color, I’m enjoying my COLORING ANIMAL MANDALA’S book by Wendy Piersall from Ulysses Press. Other animals to “relax, focus, reach a higher state of mindfulness and simply enjoy yourself” include snakes, lions, butterflies, swans, tigers, foxes, unicorns, seahorses, and dragons.
I ONLY received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
