Dragon Fairy Designs: Introduction To Zentangle

Zentangle is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun mindful meditation that creates beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. Meditation and art have been paired together for a long time. Examples are the designs in sacred architecture, Chinese/ Japanese calligraphy, and Indian Mandalas. This is nothing new. Zentangle has just been able to translate this relationship into a simple easy method for all. Initially a Zentangle practice increases focus and creativity along with an increased sense of personal wellbeing.
