The box I have chosen to review is 'Comfort the Worried Mind', as this is most definitely me! I am a born worrier, always whittling about something or other, constantly analysing things. So, let's have a look inside the box.
There are 4 concertina cards, each one representing an element: fire, air, earth and water. The idea is that each element corresponds to an emotion and mindfully recognising this is halfway towards feeling better. There are 5 designs on each card, and the reverse side is covered in beautiful statements to help the colourist connect with an intention for colouring. Richard and Cathy believe that although escapism is great and necessary, to find peace through colouring you should be present in the moment.
The drawings are very organic, representing nature as it elementally is, rather than as a countryside landscape or flowerbed. If you like flowing, conceptual designs that aren't immediately obvious, this will suit you down to the ground. The abstract nature of the illustrations mean you can really let go and colour however you feel, rather than based on what you see in front of you. It certainly calmed me and it was interesting to colour something so different to what's out there at the moment. The perforated cards mean you can remove your picture to display, and you are encouraged to share with others and spread the meditative properties of colouring.
Richard and Cathy very kindly sent me the triple set of their Good Medicine Series, so in the spirit of sharing the healing properties of colouring with others, I am giving away the other two boxes to two lucky Colour with Claire followers. Entering couldn't be more simple; just make sure you're a liker of my Facebook page and comment on the FACEBOOK POST for this review, and you'll be in the draw. The two winners will be chosen from those comments on Friday 24th July. Good luck!
