The Diva Challenge this week is to post a piece you've done while you were using Zentangle as a meditation tool. Luckily I have a whole notebook of these as I try to do one each night before bed. Here is the one I did last night.
I've taken a lot of Zentangle classes that teach it as an art form. The meditation and mindfulness aspect is touched on by way of description but the classes are not taught in relation to that. They are basically how to draw certain tangles and ways you can use them to decorate things or make art. I took Connie S.'s class on 'Going With The Flow' at Expo and that was the closest I've seen; quiet class, calming background music, and the teacher's voice was low and calm. I'll keep looking. There has to be a class like that out there somewhere. In the meantime, I'll just make it up as I go along. It really does help my insomnia some. Zen on!
