Woodland Mandalas is a unique reimagining of coloring books for adults and discerning children motivated by my own home within the mountains. By combining the potent symbolism of the Mandala and various woodland creatures, settings, and themes, this book seeks to inspire a sense of balance and meditation in your life. Each time you flip open this book you will be treated to a wonderland of symmetry, sacred geometry, balance, and comfort that can usually only be found when meditating in the woods.
Mandalas have evolved over the centuries from religious symbols to high art. The word Mandala means “circle” or “center” and you will notice the perfect symmetry of these designs evokes a sense of calm and centering that is quite intentional. The chaotic nature of the forest is interpreted in a way that incorporates these deliberate lines and designs bringing forth a juxtaposition that is conducive to daily meditation. It is my hope that when you complete a mandala design with your own colors and creativity you will feel a sense of accomplishment, control, and order by bringing color to a small corner of your world.
May these designs enrich your creative spirit, soothe your soul, and bring balance to your life.
