Drawing Out Your Emotions

Submitted by Carly Tracz

Peer Advocates for Mental Wellness and Success, or PAWS, will host a Mental Wellness Week event from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 8 on the K-State Student Union terrace. In case of rain, the event will be in the Union courtyard. 

Drawing Out Your Emotions will feature mandala coloring pages, designed to help calm your emotions and relieve stress.

Swiss analytical psychologist Carl Jung believed mandalas to be beneficial in stabilizing, integrating and reordering our inner life.

"I sketched every morning in a notebook a small circular drawing, ... which seemed to correspond to my inner situation at the time. ... Only gradually did I discover what the mandala really is: ... the Self, the wholeness of the personality, which if all goes well is harmonious." -Carl Jung
