Mental Health Day and Zentangle

June 1st, Over the bridge this morning to lovely Coronado for a Mental Health Day at the Coronado library.

Today, the library brought in several mental health presenters.  With wellness being a large part of life these days - Zentangle fits in well.

Zentangle is a meditative art form that can improve mood, be calming, as well as a tool to reduce stress, anger management, anxiety, depression and improve mental and physical health.  Corporate/office, medical (staff and patients), teachers/students,  etc, can all benefit from "tangling".  

Zentangle teaches you how to own your mistakes.  No rulers, no erasers, no mistakes. Just like in life, if you go the wrong direction, you don't erase your steps, you re-direct.  This is why there are no mistakes in the Zentangle Method.  Tangling teaches you how to incorporate what seems like a " mistakes", into something positive  Nothing is ever perfect, but how you adjust to imperfections in life is what really matters.  Zentangle reinforces mindfulness.   It is more about the process than being "number one".


Zentangle is not just another art class. Zentangle is a new, fresh idea and very different  because of theory and approach to art.  Take a class from a Certified Zentangle Teacher that has been trained by the founders that design the method.  See for yourself what all the talk is about.
