Hi you amazing trauma healing people around the world,

This is a creative arts book that combines unique, artistic mandalas with inspirational poetry. Here is the cover I designed:

Why Self-regulation is so Important Right Now
Right now it’s more important than ever for us to calm our nervous systems. The collective traumas we’re going through really do take a toll on our bodies. Current events – war, pandemic, economic instability, etc. – promote the disintegration of mind and emotions. Doing simple creative things like coloring a coloring book or making arts and crafts can help to integrate the mind and emotions. Coloring is surprisingly relaxing and helps to bring about self-connection and slowing down. Coloring promotes feeling sensations of goodness in the body – enjoyment, relaxation, and settling. Calm, focused coloring also accesses the creative brain which is a different part of the brain than the stressed-out brain – so it promotes the exercising of a calmer part of the brain.
I hope this book can help people ground, calm down their nervous systems, feel uplifted, and take small time-outs from this stressful world we’re living in.
