The Zen-spiration

Saturday I attended a Zentangle© Basics Course in Zurich with the first ever Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT) in Switzerland, Hanny Waldburger. Even though I didn’t feel my best I decided to attend. My state was clearly past incubation so I wasn’t in danger of infecting anyone. And I thought a couple of hours of creative time might be the best cure anyways.

It’s not like I didn’t know anything about zentangling, meaning I could have attended the advanced course but I was interested to learn the basics, the phylosophy behind the whole zentangle movement. And it is fascinating, I’m telling you.

The three hours were well spent, even if it meant that I sounded like a failing steam-engine Sunday morning. That would most certainly have happened anyway. At least now I know that I had three memorable hours with a bunch of creative ladies who to begin with thought they were utterly talentless but as it turned out they were all amazing artists. That’s the beauty of zentangling: It takes out the stress of competing with either your own expecations or others work – each and every piece is unique and beautiful in it’s own way. See for yourselves:

I hope you all had an inspiring weekend with at least one activity that took you to that place of calm contentment that one only finds when being in the here and now, finding the flow.
What’s your go to activity to find that state?
