Have you ever Zentangled? (This new concept may be old hat to you, but just in case …)
Don’t let the term trap you into logical interpretations.
No claustrophobia intended.
On the contrary,
this type of tangling is all about freeing … your mind.
Zentangle® is a mesmerizing method of structured doodling created by calligrapher Maria Thomas and her husband, Rick Roberts.
Let’s put it into context:
You’ve been known to scribble and swirl on scraps of paper when talking on the phone, yes?
Well, Zentangle takes this kind of drawing to a whole new level of artistry-meets-meditation.
And anyone can do it, even people who insist they can’t draw.
“We love presenting to a class or seminar full of people who are convinced they can’t draw the Zentangle art we show them. Then, within 15 minutes, they have easily accomplished what they thought was impossible,” Maria says. “This is one of our favorite Zentangle moments, because then we ask, ‘What else do you know that you can’t do?’ You can transfer that insight and experience of success and accomplishment to any life experience. Something may look complicated, but you now know that you can do it, one simple stroke at a time.”
