Here’s a wonderful book that makes a perfect companion to my book, Activate Divine Creativity, The Life-Changing Magic of the Mandala.
I have been studying and creating mandalas since 2000. There are quite a few good books available, however I have found most of them are either way to dense and academic, or are full of what look like computer generated mandalas to color.
I teach a 10 week class based on my book. It was during this class that I discovered The Mandala Guidebook: How to Draw, Paint and Color Expressive Mandala Art .
While my students love drawing mandalas with the process I write about in my book, I wanted to give them more.
When I found “The Mandala Guidebook: How to Draw, Paint and Color Expressive Mandala Art online, I dug further at the author’s website. I was impressed and excited! I bought the book and was immediately delighted when I opened it.
First of all, this book is the real deal. The mandalas are hand drawn and beautiful.
The author, Kathryn Costa is crazy about colors and mandalas and has created a large community of fellow mandala adventurers. The book is beautifully illustrated and has instructions on drawing mandalas freehand, using the grid method, drawing the sacred geometry flower of life, drawing with coils, exploring color, shading and more.
I used a couple of the methods with my students and as you can see by a few examples below, they loved them.
I consider this book to be an excellent adjunct to my book, Activate Divine Creativity, the Life Changing Magic of the Mandala.
My book is about the life-changing magic of creativity and how to activate it in your life using the mandala.
Mandalas are powerful, sacred and have a rich history that goes back to the beginning of time. Kathryn Costa not only understands this but is able to portray that in this contemporary book, The Mandala Guidebook: How to Draw, Paint and Color Expressive Mandala Art .
I know I’ll use her book over and over and I will continue to learn from it. I highly recommend it to anyone who knows a thing or two about mandalas and has already read Activate Divine Creativity, The Life-Changing Magic of the Mandala.
These mandala books would make a perfect gift together. Below are the links again for easy ordering on Amazon.
I look forward to seeing you soon!
