small group. As to the complaints by other reviewers about the black paper on which the mandalas are drawn, this was Judith's shortcut for beginning artists who knew nothing about "values" in art making. By having her students make an under painting in white pencil on black paper and then adding the color in a delicate second layer, she taught them values as well as providing an experiential process of bringing forth light out of darkness. Without any formal art training I was able to reverse the process later on with white paper, watercolor, ink, and colored pencil on white paper. The black paper is simply a beginning step. Judith's genius was to link this art-making process to inner healing and later, to take it into hospitals and teach it to cancer patients and others with serious health problems. This is an extraordinary book--not in the least "dated" although it was first published about fifteen years ago. Most of the art in it, which some reviewers have called "intimidating" was not created by fine artists but by beginners with very little previous art experience. That was Judith's special gift--to show even a beginner how to bring forth "the Light within."
