Sacred Labyrinth

Colouring books for adults are popular these days because someone - probably an artist realized the 'zone' we get into is marketable.

People occasionally ask me if I get bored when I'm doing my oil pastels, mechanically putting down layers of colour.  The truth is that those are the times that the spirit comes to me.

I've noticed the same thing happening in spinning class at the gym. There is something about our conscious minds being preoccupied with repetitive actions that opens the door to the unconscious and the spirits that dwell within.

I don't know why it is so, I just know that it happens.

Hence the interest in colouring books - people are searching to reconnect with the Sacred.

This is one of my attempts to design a colouring page. Unfortunately it is harder than I expected.

Drawing a straight solid line is not for the faint of heart.

I'll talk more about this design in the next post.


  1. I'd colour your design! You know how I love labyrinths. Walking meditation in a labyrinth is my way of contacting spirit -- that's what does it for me.

    My sister wants one of those adult colouring books for Xmas so I think in the past couple of weeks, I've looked at every one available on the market. Gawd, there's a gazillion of them, LOL! They are definitely the "hot item" this year.

  2. This is so interesting! I've seen this mentioned on the internet. I think it's a wonderful idea.
