People who are considering art or find that they have a potential or interest in learning how to draw and color find that this new hobby interest is helping and building their confidence to advance their art training.
Then go about mindfully colouring it in, as you consider every aspect of the relationship. You can find compassion, forgiveness, understanding and may discover a new way to celebrate the relationship. Imagine what a fabulous gift such a coloured in mandala would make.

I use mandala coloring as my primary active meditation technique. It’s the easiest way to learn how to meditate along with being inexpensive and fun. Coloring also allows you to open up your creative side and be expressive. Licensed art therapist use techniques like coloring to help patients with stress relief and to deal with anxiety issues.
Keeping the mandala someplace visible will help you to focus on the energies you want to nurture.
