Meditative Coloring

Coloring books for adults are a HUGE business these days. As someone who has used art as a meditative device for years, I’m so excited that other people are getting in touch with their creative side through the use of coloring pages. If you’re like me and you can’t draw worth a lick (collage is my medium), these pages are an easy way to get in touch with your creative spirit. Most people find this activity to be a relaxing and calming experience so give it a try.

The first is the absolutely stunning Celtic Spirit: Knotwork Designs For Inner Peace by Cleopatra Motzel. I came across it at my local Barnes & Noble bookstore but it’s also available on Amazon. The artwork is nearly museum quality and the book itself is bound beautifully. There are fanciful illustrations of the four elements and each page explores spiritual concepts such as “breaking free” and “coexistence.” Absolutely stunning!

Although some of the images are rather simple there are a number of them that are really beautiful. Kaufmann draws from many diverse spiritual traditions and includes an index of the images at the back of the book for further study. It is also available in both of the places I mentioned.

So grab some high quality colored pencils or markers and enjoy this fun and relaxing art form.
