The mandala is an ancient symbol used in ritual and religion as a centring device. Mandalas can be found in nature, architecture and design, and in 'Zendala', the mandala motif is a starting point for promoting calm and mindfulness. Few materials are needed to create stunning, centring mandalas: just paper, pens and imagination. The practice of drawing and colouring a mandala is one that can be undertaken when you feel stressed, or even when you have a small period of spare time in which to relax and find your zen. The mandalas are designed by therapist and art education professional Susanne Schaadt.
