According to distributors COMAG Specialist: The idea of colouring-in for adults has become a massive success in recent years, with people relearning the relaxing, stress-relieving and rewarding aspects of the activity.

Anecdotal evidence and scientific studies show that the act of colouring-in can eliminate stress, improve moods and actually provide benefit to the overall health of practitioners.

Allowing adults to rediscover the childlike joys of colouring-in and the relaxing power of art, the craze has adults around the world reaching for their pencils, pens, paints and crayons!

For Buddhists however, the health benefits of colouring-in is not a new phenomenon and they have been aware of the spiritual and healing properties of colour benefits for centuries.

Considered magical and a symbol of active meditation, the mandala is a diagram that Buddhists use to detach from the world, savour the moment and achieve inner peace.

Featuring 64 mandalas to colour-in in every issue, Colouring Mediataton will allow readers to enjoy the quiet time of relaxation as experienced by these ancestral figures.

Perfect-bound and printed on high quality paper, readers can keep their uniquely coloured and completed issues of Colouring Meditation as a personalised source of peace, bringing relaxation, relief from stress and quietness in this fast-paced, aggressive world.
