Books lend themselves to being vehicles for learning, teaching and, of course, fun. On the occasion of the International Day of creativity and innovation, a day that seeks to promote open the mind and let yourself go to create and evolve certain ideas or emotions in every human being, Leamos recommends two titles that have as their central focus the possibility of activating certain areas of the brain.

Although many people do not have much faith in activity books, pointing out that they are not “valuable” because they do not contain a story that is “worth reading”, this is not entirely true. Many professionals, such as Patricia López Caballero and Faber Burgos, have made their publications a way to continue exploring different literary formats.
López Caballero has promoted a love for the arts, drawing and the almost meditative practice that is carried out while coloring his geometric figures, which can be seen in “El camino del mandala”.

Burgos seems to want to promote in his readers the feeling, or rather the need, that his readers want to know more about science and everything that it hides and/or implies. With his most recent editorial publication, “Faber’s Laboratory”, he offers the public the opportunity for scientific experimentation, through some activities that are explained step by step in his novelty.

Through these two books, your readers will be able to enjoy two different processes, but they will surely achieve their goal by activating certain parts of imagination and creativity, thus generating a sense of innovation in everyday life.
Patricia López Caballero was born and raised in Cali, Colombia. She studied Law and worked in the Federation of Coffee Growers, in 1986 she moved to Bogotá and a few years later she decided to pursue her true passion: the symbolic and connective language of the spirit, manifested through the expressive arts.

Caballero complemented his studies in plastic arts with ontological coaching and other disciplines of self-knowledge and merged them into a methodology to accompany, as a creative and transpersonal coach, the human path of religation.
In 2004 he created Mandala Taller, an oasis for experimenting with creative paths as connection instruments. He has written seven books that open paths of self-discovery.
“The path of the mandala” is a way of connecting life and discovering its purpose in it. Through eight places, in which its spectators will intervene in sixty-four mandalas, a path will be traveled that will lead each person to the center of their being.
From there you can create your own reality in connection with the very source of existence. On this journey you will be invited to experience a new time, a cyclical one, and to reconnect with the archetypal force of the circle that moves and develops life and strengthens its natural resources.
This book centers and reconnects those who need it most, with their talents, abilities, and abilities. Everything mentioned will be in balance and will be accessible within the mandala, giving the possibility of harmonizing all aspects of your life, as the perfect reflection of the geometry of existence present in your being.
