Mandalas are highly decorative, symmetrical diagrams used as a focal point in meditation. The 52 beautiful mandalas in this book, all specially designed for modern minds, take you on a voyage of self-discovery, with a different theme for meditation explored each week of the year - from finding the core of peace within yourself to awakening pure love. Each of the mandalas is accompanied by a unique step-by-step "pre-meditation" guide to its symbolism. An authoritative introduction looks at the history of the mandala, and outlines the various ways in which mandalas can be used in your meditative practice. "Meditating with Mandalas" is an inspiring and practical resource for everyone interested in growing in peace and awareness through meditation.
