ABSTRACT:
Art is a creative focus that cultivates Mindfulness. Mandala art is one of the richest artwork created by circular designs that can contain intricate pattern or symbols. Mandala art is ancient-more than 2,000years old! It is found in many cultures and is used in many religious traditions. Carl Jung, the psychologist said that a mandala art symbolizes “a safe refuge of inner reconciliation and wholeness”. Jung used the mandala for this own personal growth and recommended as a therapeutic intervention to promote psychological health as he perceived that drawing mandalas has a calming effect on his patients while facilitating their processing of thoughts and emotion. Today in health care, mandala arts are widely used as a healing tool to treat people suffering with terminal illness like cancer undergoing chemotherapy and radiation therapy, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, grief, Substance abuse and addiction.
