The Zentangle method was developed by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas who say on their website zentangle.com: "We believe that life is an art form and that each person is an artist." and "People who draw according to the Zentangle Method, describe their experiences as others describe the states of mindfulness and flow. This can occur as soon as with the first tile. No longer is a lengthy practice needed to access these inspiring and high performance states of awareness."
I so agree with this and I can support it from my own experience. If you can write your name, you can 'tangle'. It increases focus and creativity, provides artistic satisfaction along with an increased sense of well-being. The Zentangle method is enjoyed all over the world by people of all ages and with widely differing backgrounds and diverse interests - teachers, consultants, doctors, retirees, artists, many of whom have experienced the positive effects in their field. "The Zentangle method is an elegant metaphor for conscious artistry in life." (zentangle.com)
