Review: Coloring Animal Mandalas by Wendy Piersall


Attain focus, clarity and peace while adding bright and inspiring colors to these unique patterns.

From the Sanskrit word for “circle,” mandalas have been used for meditation and healing for thousands of years. Coloring Animal Mandalas adds the beauty of the animal kingdom—including butterflies, tigers, swans, snakes, lions, and even dragons—into these intricate designs for page after page of coloring book bliss. With roots in Hinduism and Buddhism, mandalas are spiritual symbols that represent the universe. Coloring these hypnotically beautiful, mystical shapes is a meditative and enjoyable way to relax. A fun way to achieve a state of mindfulness, Coloring Animal Mandalas adds fosters creativity, reduces stress, and allows you to embrace your inner child by focusing on the simple but engaging task of coloring in the detailed designs.

I adored this book.  Mandalas have been used for meditation and relaxation for a long time and too see it used in this context was such a treat.  I found it to be quite relaxing and enjoyable.  My 6 year old son also really enjoyed coloring along side me.  I really encourage all that are looking for something to do that is both beautiful and relaxing to pick up this book and get to work.  You can get lost in the pictures and feel rejuvenated after you are done using your creative mind!
