This art reference guide makes a great gift or companion for art lovers. The mandala is a geometric figure representing the universe in eastern religious symbolism. Coloring the circular designs known as mandalas is a creative activity that brings relaxation, healing, and self-understanding. Susanne Fincher's first such coloring book, Coloring Mandalas, presented designs organized according to a scheme of twelve archetypal stages that represents a cycle of personal growth. This sequel focuses on a single one of these stages, "Crystallization," which is associated with the completion of a cycle of growth. The mandalas in this book aim to help us understand ourselves and our place in the scheme of things, provide relaxation and a soothing balance for hectic lifestyles, deepen our meditation, and much more.
