What are Mandalas?
Mandalas connect the spirit, offering symbols found in nature while helping to discover the inner self and acquire a sense of wonder and inspiration. The circle of a mandala represents wholeness and unity.
What is Zentangle?
Zentangle is a relaxing process which brings the mind and spirit into focus through the repetition of simple shapes. Zentangle is very personal and requires no artistic training. The underlying philosophy of the mandala expands the message in your drawings as you investigate your feelings and discover your hidden potential.
The process of Zentangle helps anyone get in touch with life. It opens your awareness to new ideas, helps you solve problems, calms the soul, and fosters your creative spirit.
