More meditative coloring

This will be a very brief post because I DO actually have to get some work done!! This is another mandala I colored yesterday. After I spent time coloring, reflecting and praying, I did a google search on “meditative coloring” and was surprised to find a wealth of information on it. Here I thought I was doing something new and creative and it turns out it is a practice that people have been doing for years. Go figure. Anyway, I have found this practice to be very centering. The very shape and pattern of the mandala lends itself to that. It has been a wonderful exercise, one to which I will return often. And now that I am more centered, I need to get some work done … so until next time, peace …

    Great idea. I love the mandala I created at Becky’s Julian retreat. I might just run out and buy the big box of Crayola crayons and get started on a new one.
