Author: National Institute of Mental Health (U.S.)

Mandalas are circular designs containing lines, patterns, and colors that have been used in personal devotions throughout history and often symbolize a desire to mark or set aside a special time or place. Coloring mandalas is a creative activity that can help us feel connected to ourselves and to the world. In her latest collection of mandalas for coloring, Susanne Fincher focuses on using mandalas as a way to claim our own truths and to find our way in the world. The original designs she presents are associated with being and doing. The “being” mandalas represent a sense of balance, integration, and self-realization. They can be reminiscent of the designs of heraldic shields carried as the emblem of personal power. The “doing” mandalas represent action, energy, and functioning in the world. These mandalas are associated with creativity, ingenuity, teamwork, and productivity. Coloring the mandalas in this book allows you to interact with forms that evoke both steady, centered being, and active, skillful doing.Coloring Mandalas 4 provides a creative and insightful path toward self-knowledge.
"A few year back, a place called bihu Loukon in Imphal West was identified from Google map where a fairly large star shaped mud designed encircled by a similar rectangular wall was discovered in the midst of paddy fields. All these areas are now paddy fields and even some parts of the outer walls have been destroyed. It was later on found that this is not an isolated structures but one among numerous others. An article attempting to interpret these structures has been incorporated to make our readers look into our past." - Extract from letter from the Editor.

"A unique and fascinating book featuring a patient, his mandalas, and the commentary by his analyst, David Rosen, an outstanding figure in the world of Jungian psychology. A must-read for anyone interested in therapy and the healing process." --Henry Abramovitch, Founding President, Israel Institute of Jungian Psychology "Soul Circles offers a powerful visual journey into a living individuation process. The dialogue between the partners is fresh and informative, respectful of personal details while highlighting a transformational process captured in mandala imagery." --Joe Cambray, President, Pacifica Graduate Institute "Soul Circles is a beautiful document of the self-regulating function of the psyche and the healing that comes through accepting and giving space to the creative urge that accompanies this function. It demonstrates the importance of a relationship of trust and empathy for the unfolding of the inner process. Deepest gratitude to both authors for sharing their experience with us." --Milena Sotirova-Kohli, Jungian analyst, Bern, Switzerland
