I’ve been playing with a simple handmade book lately, and labyrinth forms as focus exercise and use as a Zentangle string. Recently I also came across some simple painted labyrinth forms that have encouraged me to bring more color into creating a hand drawn finger labyrinth.
So why labyrinths? I’ve always been drawn to the meditative and peaceful experience of walking a labyrinth, how it draws your entire being into a single-minded focus of forward motion. It brings you here, now, to concentrate on the very moment. When I started experimenting with adding Zentangle to the experience, it opened up a whole new level of focus.
In 2013 I had the opportunity to teach a simple drawn labyrinth form, broke n down in Zentangle fashion, to a group of teachers at Sandy B’s studio as a small part of a Zentangle Spiritual retreat day. Next month, I am returning there to teach a full day of using Zentangle with Labyrinths, complete with your own handmade labyrinth journal. This workshop is open to anyone who has attended a Zentangle workshop with a CZT.
Come join us!
***Note: Only ONE seat left as of July 10!***
A full day of drawing and tangling with labyrinths! We’ll start the day by making a simple yet special sewn journal with a Lokta or Japanese rice paper cover, then dive in to learning to draw a variety of Labyrinth forms, broken down into steps.
Learn and use tangles that work well for movement thru and ‘walking’ the path as with your pen and experience yet a whole new layer of focus with a guided meditation. Includes ideas for setting up a few extra labyrinth string pages with color techniques for you to tangle in once you get home.
