We must chronicle our own adventures and achievements, our brilliant observations and our comic relief, our best friends and our greatest embarrassments. Visual Chronicles is all about YOU: your dreams, your memories, your daily routines, your greatest loves and your secret pet peeves. It's all about getting to know yourself better, savoring the wonderful ebb and flow of your everydays, and celebrating it all in visual mementos of your life journey. Sound fun? Heck, yes! Sound hard? Not a bit. Each chapter of Visual Chronicles quiets common fears such as "Nothing happens in my life." or "I'm just not artistic." with projects such as the "My Day Unfolds Journal", and "Experiments with Composition." Inside, you'll learn that journaling doesn't take big chunks of time - just bits and pieces here and there, whenever the spirit strikes. "Get Going" exercises offer instant ideas such as listening to the conversations you have with yourself or recognizing that meaningful ephemera is a part of each and every day. Soon, you'll see that inspiration awaits all around you: a midnight trip to the store, a favorite scarf, an unexpected phone call, junk email, your breakfast plate . . . Don't wait another second. Make creative journaling a part of your everyday life, busting through self-doubt, time clocks, piles of laundry, and every other roadblock along the way. With Visual Chronicles, you'll be inspired to tell your story the way only you can!
The Mandala Workbook
A Creative Guide for Self-Exploration, Balance, and Well-Being
1st Edition Paperback ISBN: 1590305183
Mandala-making is fun, relaxing, and can show you things about yourself that may surprise you. Susanne Fincher invites you to make mandala creation a practice, and to experience the insights and delights it can provide. Based on ancient European artifacts, contemporary religious iconography, and traditional tantric art, mandalas are circular designs that offer a profound symbol of the wholeness of the self. The Mandala Workbook offers a complete guide to mandala work, based on the Great Round—the twelve archetypal stages that represent a complete cycle of personal growth. Each chapter focuses on one stage and aims to fully engage readers in the meaning or purpose of that stage. Through a variety of step-by-step exercises and activities, each chapter provides mandala-making projects to help connect readers with the transformative powers of the mandala. Building on her previous books, Susanne Fincher highlights connections between the archetypal imagery of circles and working toward a balanced wholeness of self. This book combines theory and philosophy with practical and creative methods to present an engaging and hands-on approach to mandala work.
