Although various forms and functions of mandalas differ, they have many qualities in common: a central point, a geometric design, symmetry, purpose, and movement toward and away from a center. As Carl Jung discovered in his journaling and dream work, they evoke the pleasure that comes from working with universal patterns of line and form. When colored for healing purposes, they can alleviate tension and boredom while enhancing serenity and mental activity. When colored for purposes of spiritual exploration, they help provide an awareness of the universe and the oneness of all life.
Look at the Christian’s usage of the labyrinth or marvel at the mandala healing ceremony performed by American Indians and you will find that the sacred circle has transcended its ancient roots. Many present-day religions and civilizations have come to view the mandala, with its gentle symmetry, as a symbol of the balance in nature, the unity within the world, and the harmony we all seek within our lives. Even the world renowned psychologist and founder of analytical psychology, Carl Jung was struck by the healing abilities of the mandala. Licensed art therapists use mandala coloring as a way to help patients end anxiety and learn stress relief.
