Mandala-making is fun, relaxing, and can show you things about yourself that may surprise you. Susanne Fincher invites you to make mandala creation a practice, and to experience the insights and delights it can provide. Based on ancient European artifacts, contemporary religious iconography, and traditional tantric art, mandalas are circular designs that offer a profound symbol of the wholeness of the self. The Mandala Workbook offers a complete guide to mandala work, based on the Great Round-the twelve archetypal stages that represent a complete cycle of personal growth. Each chapter focuses on one stage and aims to fully engage readers in the meaning or purpose of that stage. Through a variety of step-by-step exercises and activities, each chapter provides mandala-making projects to help connect readers with the transformative powers of the mandala. Building on her previous books, Susanne Fincher highlights connections between the archetypal imagery of circles and working toward a balanced wholeness of self. This book combines theory and philosophy with practical and creative methods to present an engaging and hands-on approach to mandala work.
