Note: The Revised Edition of this book is the same as the First Edition except it has blank page backs and dotted lines for cutting out each page with an Xacto knife (whereas in the First Edition, the coloring pages have text on the backs).Slow down, tune into yourself and relax while you color 20 beautiful illustrations centered around the theme of recovering from traumatic life experiences. Each of the first 13 illustrations in this adult coloring book is accompanied by a mindfulness activity or somatic therapy exercise that teaches you how to ground into your body and self-regulate your own nervous system. These body awareness activities are not just useful for trauma recovery; they can also help to reduce stress and anxiety. The last seven illustrations are accompanied by messages that address various deeper aspects of the process of healing from trauma. These seven pages of poetry and written word were created to be short meditations to sink into while coloring. Illustrated and written by artist Heidi Hanson, creator of New-Synapse.com Tools for Self Healing and The Art of Healing Trauma Blog.Revisions in Revised Edition: - Coloring pages and Exercise Pages are blank on the back.- Dotted guidelines are included for using Xacto knife to cut each page out.- You may choose to color the pages outside of the book if this is easier for you.- If you are coloring with markers and the colors bleed through, this won't effect an opposite side text page making it difficult to read as nothing is printed on the other side.- You may choose to hang pages up on the wall to display your finished work.- You may hang the Exercise Instructions up next to the finished Coloring Page if you like.- Page count increased (90 as opposed to 56)Other than that all the content is exactly the same as the First Edition.
