Statement: Meditation is a practice with a long history of use. Large collections of research have been amassed showing its? benefits for increasing calmness and physical relaxation, improving psychological balance, coping with illness, and enhancing overall health. Carl Jung used mandalas with his clients and for his own personal meditations. His studies revealed their creation allowed a deep meditative state to occur. These visual patterns have a powerful effect on the mind. Just as the spoken mantras used in meditation are useful in balancing our minds and bodies, mandala shapes generate increased coherence in our brains, creating a similar balancing influence.
