OmakaZen

禅绕私房菜

Borrowing the dining concept, we would like to present the Omakase of Zentangle – OmakaZen to you. 

We design this series of workshop with the simple hope to share what we find fun and exciting to do, and we invite you to join us in this journey of exploration, of trust and of joy.

It is not our intention to keep things in suspense, but we hope to create an opportunity for us to practice having a curious mind and heart, as an essential step in mindful living.

So, let down your hair and come tangle with us on the last Friday of each month.

This series of workshop is only open to people who are privileged to have met the Zentangle method and already have some experience tangling.

禅绕私房菜 – 借用饮食界一个关于信任与诚意的概念,我们设计了一系列的工作坊,邀您共享。

不为什么,只是想分享我们觉得好玩、有趣的禅绕活动。

不是想卖什么关子,只是因为好奇心有时离得我们好远,希望通过一些无伤大雅的小活动,让它再走进我们的生活里,给我们一个机会认真体验活在当下。

每个月的最后一个星期五晚上,来一起放开胸怀开餐!

禅绕私房菜系列工作坊只开放给有幸接触禅绕画,并已有涂乐经验的朋友们。

This intermediate class is all about TANGLEATION -- creating tangle variations so you don't have to get wrapped up in learning too many patterns, just used those that you learn and make them into interesting new patterns!  

No matter how long you've been tangling, there is something for all of us:

✅ Explore the ones you already know and see how you can shake them up…
✅ Learn new tangles and explore the possibilities…

 

这是一系列中阶禅绕画课程,学员必须曾经参加由任何禅绕画认证老师带领的,至少1.5小时的初阶禅绕画课程。

在学习禅绕画的过程中,一定学了不少图样吧。但其实我们不需要很多图样,也能创造独一无二的禅绕画作。这个课程就让你为已学会的图样变花样,突破局限翻转新天地!

✅ 对于熟悉的图样,打开视野,看这些图样如何蜕变成无比新花样
✅ 对于从没学过的图样,尽情探索“它”的各种可能性

A Tangled Pathway – Meet Yourself in the Labyrinth! 游走明阵:禅绕道

-

Lindsay Lim

Two class dates to choose from:
Intake 1: 12 Sep 2.00 - 4.00 pm 
   

Intake 2: 14 Oct 7.30 - 9.30 pm 

On-site attendance 现场上课

A maze is a puzzle meant to confuse you causing you to lose your way whereas a labyrinth is designed for you to find your way. A labyrinth consists of a single path with many twists and turns and often people viewed walking a labyrinth as a metaphor for life’s journey. Many also use it as a meditative tool to assist in finding simple moments of peace and clarity, reducing stress, healing, self-exploration and reflection. 

In this class, we will draw our labyrinth and using the Zentangle® method, fill in the path in the labyrinth with tangle patterns. As we tangle, we can imagine walking along the path, giving ourselves the space to quiet our mind, letting go of any expectations and just simply enjoy the journey, allowing ourselves to receive what is there for us. 

在繁忙的生活中,人的心灵容易杂乱,有如置身在有很多「分岔路」的Maze「迷宫」里,容易迷失方向。而 Labyrinth「明阵」只有一个出入口,一条清楚的通道,沿着迂回的路径通往中心点,再由中心点顺着原路折返。借由这条可信赖的通道,体会迂回曲折的路径仿如人生的逆转变迁。

诚意邀请大家从「忙」的生活中,放慢脚步,给自己片刻的空间,学习享受安静与缓慢,透过Labyrinth「明阵」和禅绕画帮助你与心灵对话、聆听当下身心、藉「明阵」穿越心灵迷宫,走一趟心灵之旅。

Mindfulness Tangling

If you are looking for me-time or activities that can help you destress, or to take a breather from your daily work routine, then you may want to consider taking courses under the Mindfulness Tangling category.

There are also thematic courses that draw on the unique benefits of the Zentangle method to help us un-tangle specific areas of our lives
