BOOK

MANDALAS

Colouring Book

This book has 80 different mandala designs to colour!

Mandalas are usually circular symbols that represent the universe. They are old meditation and de-stressing tools.

Colouring is a fun and creative activity that has many benefits to the mind. Studies show that drawing, colouring and other creative and expressive activities (such as music, dancing, cooking, writing, etc.) can promote:

- self-awareness;

- emotional well-being;

- healing;

- self-esteem.

Colouring brings you to the present moment, to the task that you are doing, so it is a very mindful activity, it calms the mind.

Zero Waste Gifts

For a More Sustainable Christmas

 

Christmas has become a time of excessive consumerism, of excessive and often unnecessary expenses.

In this class I will talk a little bit about the waste we produce with our lifestyle and which worsens during the festivities, and also I will share with you many ideas of sustainable gifts and wrapping, without (or with little) waste.

Change starts in each one of us, with small, big gestures that transform our lives and can sensitise and inspire others to change as well, like the domino effect. 

Join me in this class to take another step towards a more sustainable and wholesome lifestyle!
