One of the founders of Zentangle, Maria Thomas, one day found herself doodling background patterns on a manuscript she was writing. She found that whilst she drew, she experience feelings of timelessness, freedom, well-being and complete focus, with no other thoughts or worries able to enter her mind. This is how people describe meditation, and now it's how people are describing Zentangle!
In Zentangle, each tiny individual stroke is drawn deliberately, with no concern for the appearance of the overall completed piece. There is no eraser, and mistakes simply become the foundations for new patterns, which take your Zentangle designs in yet another direction. With no predetermined result, Zentangle offers you freedom and focus; it's something you simply cannot fail at, because there is no one correct solution.
Zentangle can be used to improve self-esteem, and help to channel your thoughts during times of stress or anxiety. Zentangle has had an inspirational effect on the lives of so many people already... Why not see where it takes you?
