Description de l'ouvrage

13 avril 2010
The circular designs known as mandalas are symbols of deep inner truth, and when creating your own mandalas, you can discover things about yourself that can surprise you. Susanne Fincher introduces here the history and ritual use of mandalas in cultures all over the world. She then shows you how to make your own, offering guidance on choosing art materials and techniques. She discusses the symbolism of colors, numbers, shapes, and motifs (such as birds and flowers) that appear in mandalas, and she also presents several illustrated case histories of people who have successfully used her techniques.

This revised edition includes a new preface. It also includes a new chapter on making mandalas with a group, a practice that can yield even greater insight—and more fun.

Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“Every once in a while a book appears which, right away, becomes a ‘classic’ in its field. Until it gets into print, we don’t realize how much it has been needed, because there has been nothing available to remind us that there is a gap in the existing literature. Such a book is Susanne F. Fincher’s Creating Mandalas.”—Journal of the American Art Therapy Association

“Susanne Fincher’s practical guide gathers European, African, Eastern, Native American, and other mythological perspectives and blends them with Jungian theory and her personal experience. This anatomy of the mandala will be useful to artists, therapists, and others who enter the magic circle.”—Shaun McNiff, author of Art as Medicine

“The essential tool for anyone with an ounce of creativity.  The stories about the meaning of numbers, forms, and colors in mandalas are fascinating."—Mandala magazine

“Fincher’s book is warm, direct, and easily comprehended in its healing mission. This book is a mandala in its own right, and it is healing simply to read it.”—from the Foreword by Robert A. Johnson

“Creating Mandalas reads with grace and surety, making something exotic and remote now appear immediate and available. There is a wonderful fusion of ancient and contemporary observations and wisdom.”—Peter London, author of No More Secondhand Art

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Fun & Excellent Resource! 22 janvier 2001
Par "alabasterwoman" - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I bought this book AFTER I had done several mandalas in an art therapy class. I was amazed by the insight of the author into art (and mandalas) as a healing & exploratory tool, and by the extra dimensions Fincher's writing helped me to find in my art work. Using her book as a guide, I'm continuing to create mandalas... and am using her research to augment the interpretation of my OTHER artworks as well. I highly reccommend this book -- especially to folks who want to access and improve upon the instinctive, artistic side of their nature but fear that they "don't know how to draw". You'll find, using Fincher's book, that sometimes simply WHERE you put a blob of color on a piece of paper, and WHAT color you're using is far more important than whether or not you've drawn something that looks "perfect" or "realistic". If you want to learn more about YOURSELF, buy this book. It's a fabulous and fun tool!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Opening the door to your inner life 7 mars 2002
Par Marshall R. Hudson-knapp - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I met Suzanne Fincher at a conference sponsored by Journey into Wholeness some fifteen years ago. I did not know it but I was in the first round of a fight for life: midlife crisis. My old life was crumbling before my eyes, and I went to Suzanne's workshop on making mandalas. We drew a circle and used crayons to just let things happen. Somehow, again without my knowing it until later, all the floating pieces of my life found a place within this circle called a mandala. It gave me a profound sense of peace, AND as I learned from Suzanne's teaching and this book, about how to work with my mandalas, they have provided me - throughout the years - a powerful vision for what is happening within me. I have shared this book with small groups and classes and people seeking wholeness and healing for many years with great blessing to each person who worked with it, and I continue to recommend it as the best single resource for mandalas, and a pivotal resource for sensing the moves of the Spirit within us. Suzanne's other book, Coloring Mandalas, is a delightful coloring book that offers many diverse models of mandalas representing places on the great round of the mandala.
One of the encouraging dimensions of regular creation of mandalas is the opportunity to see "progress" or movement within our lives when we are going through changes. I remember encouraging a friend to draw mandalas one time when they felt very alone and lost. After a couple of weeks when she thought she was going nowhere and learning nothing we sat down and compared her creations with the great round of the mandala and she and I could see her movement around the cycle, charting in a most beautiful way the progress/growth/movement within her life that she could not otherwise see, It provided a deep sense of peace and encouragement on her path.
Through the years innumerable folks have found a similar vision of their inner life through mandalas. May Suzanne's book help you start on that path! A small candle, some peaceful music, some crayons or colored pencils, and a piece or paper are all you need to begin.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 An excellent browsing or reference book. 11 avril 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
There is a lot of information in this book, presented in an easy to read style. It explains the history of mandalas and the practical use of them. The text has headings on colours, symbols and numbers that appear commonly in mandalas when people create them. The text also has headings on the form or design of the mandala. Under the headings, the author draws on her own extensive research and insights to explain how each colour, symbol and number and form can be interpreted.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 How to understand Mandalas 10 mars 2002
Par Shalizeh - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
this book gives an overview on how to understand mandalas. I was looking for a book on creating them and teach students how to create them. This book is all words no pictures so if you are a teacher and want to teach students how to develop them this is not the book. If you want to understand mandalas and how they are used, this is the right book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Indispensable guide for Healing with Mandalas 7 mai 2010
Par Lily Bhattacharya - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I loved this book. Author S. Fincher is dedicated to Mandalas and healing with them. My friend a naturopath introduced me to this. I was intrigued and then discovered that the doodling we all do -had meaning if we interpret it with Mandala interpretation guidelines! It tells whats going on with you currently and well as what to expect next on your spiritual path/life path.
It is a useful tool for healing in therapy, or if your clients are inclined towards art. I am a psychologist and I use creative methods as well as deal with young children aged 3 and up and this came in very handy. If you are trying to heal your aura, or gain new perspective, mandala healing should help according to the author. I agree based on my experience.
There is a section that discusses shapes and common objects (hand, tree, heart, lightening bolt) in mandalas as well as number patterns like 1-12 and what that could mean for someone. Very informative and is a great technique for introducing your clients to so they can use this at home to cope when access to a therapist is limited. Stories of personal transformation are included as well as examples of mandalas.
