What You Will Need to Color a Mandala
Coloring Mandalas as a Meditation Technique

From Coloring Mandalas 2 by Susanne F. Fincher; 2004. Reprinted by arrangement with Shambhala Publications, Inc., www.shambhala.com.

How to Get Started

1. You will need crayons, pencil crayons, chalks, pastels, paint, or markers in a variety of colors.

2. Print the mandala.

3. Find a quiet and comfortable place.

4. Start coloring. Don't think about your choice of color too much and don't worry about matching colors. Let your instincts guide you. After you've begun with the first color, the rest will follow naturally. Susan says: "One color on the mandala invites another, like a guest who asks to bring his friend to your party."

You are now ready to try coloring more mandalas and even creating them yourself!
