A Great Pairing.....Yoga and Zentangle

About a month ago I had the opportunity to teach the Zentangle method to a group of Yogis.  They are taking one night each week to explore a new relaxation or meditation method.  Twenty-six women, men and was fun.  And they all went home with "art"!

Two more tanglers in the world today!

I held another Introduction to Zentangle class Friday in my studio.  What a good time and such pretty tiles-even the unfinished ones!

I was here - a graceful presence

I have spent a lot of time on the shores of Lake Michigan lately and am reminded to keep calm and be present.  I am remembering walking along the water's edge and coming across piles of rocks, deliberately placed and perfectly balanced.  There is a Japanese term for these piles and it is "Obos". Often only three rocks to say "I was here"  "I built this with my hands"

I was here....I made this with my hands.

Just the basics, please

I decided to try joining the fun at I Am The Diva Weekly Challenge #230 but it was over this weekend and I am not finished!  It is called "ZenDivaDala" and was suggested by a guest blogger.  Though fun, and something different, I believe I will keep doing my thing which is original tiles.  I like the size and it seems just the right commitment for me.  So I set this aside and did this little tile.

Just another Tuesday

Finally can go outside to rain!  But I did manage to spend a few minutes on a tile... I like this one and it's simplicity.

More Color

I don't remember where I got this idea but certainly out there on the internet somewhere.  So, just tracing circles, tangling them and adding color.  This method just lets your mind wander, for sure.

A New Tangle For Me

I had never heard of is the Diva Challenge this week (or was it last week). I'm interested to see how someone else handles it.

Getting so organized?

Got these brochures finished today.  I forgot how much fun publisher is...I used to love publishing newsletters, church bulletins.  Computer programs sure beat the old "cut and paste" method.

Just have to find a place to distribute them

Finally....a CZT

After so many years as a closet tangler, I completed the CZT (Certified Zentangle Teacher) training seminar in April. I am official.  I thought I knew Zentangling but oh, no!  It is mindful drawing, yes, but so much more.
