Applied Wellness Technologies has added a new division: AWT Press. This new addition to our portfolio will enable the creation and publication of adult coloring books. While this may seem ‘a bit of a stretch’ for a holistic wellness company, the reality is that adult coloring provides numerous health benefits. Carl Jung, Swiss psychiatrist and founder of analytical psychology, encouraged some of his patients to color mandalas and other designs as part of their treatment protocol. Current research shows coloring fights stress, encourages relaxation, and inspires both calm and creativity. Additionally, coloring can have spiritual benefits. Check out this article by Rev. Dr. L. Roger Owens, associate professor of leadership and ministry at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary: Yes, Coloring IS a Spiritual Practice—Here’s Why.
It stands to reason, then, that our first publication is called Blessed Be . . . Journaling Thru the Beatitudes – With Illustrations to Color.

Other titles are currently in production, including original designs as well as several reproductions of antique children’s books, with original illustrations converted to black and white for coloring.
We are excited to launch this new effort, and look forward to hearing from you as you explore our new offerings. In the meantime, it is our hope – as always – that you may
Blessed be . . . .
