Coloring Is Calming
I've often heard that coloring in a mandala can have a calming effect, so I was delighted to read a recent article in Scientific American about Mercy Corps of Portland, OR. They have actually created a coloring book for that exact reason. This basic coloring book is then tweaked a bit to take into account the kind of disaster and the culture of the people affected. For example, books recently send to Haiti are entitled, My Earthquake Story.
I hope the good people at Mercy Corps are currently working on a coloring book for those children affected in the recent earthquake/tsunami in Japan.
