禅绕画

Zentangle® is a self-help art therapy practice to facilitate and enhance relaxation, focus and self-discovery.

 

Using just four basic strokes of dot, line, curve and ring, you can create unlimited designs and patterns. There is no need for erasers or sketching or pre-planning, let the lines and shapes organically evolve, guided by your inner self, and reflecting your true spirit.

 

Just like everyone is an artist of his or her own life, every Zentangle art piece is unique, breath-taking and awesome. There is no art backgorund needed, if you can hold a pen, you can do Zentangle.

Benefits of Zentangle:

--it’s a mindfulness meditative art, it soothes your nerves

--it’s simple, it teaches you to appreciate repetitiveness--there’s no mistakes in Zentangle, anything and everything is possible and accepted

--it reinforces aimlessness, nothing is everything

--every creation is unique, learn to appreciate everything that happens

 

禅绕画®是一种能让你放缓呼吸、从容心顺、发现内在潜能的心灵艺术。只要能握笔,就能学禅绕,而且一定能学会。

 

心灵艺术禅绕画发源自美国,只用简单的点、线、弧、环,重复随兴涂画,顷刻间让纷乱烦扰的心安定平静,并让您在涂画过程中探索一步一脚印的真正意义;学会如何欣赏错误的美丽;体会转念可能带来的契机;以及逐步组建面对未来挑战的勇气。

 

给自己一个机会,重新认识自己的潜能与智慧 缠绕画简单易学,学会后带回家教家人或朋友。

A Tangling Journey though the Labyrinth

Oct 20 (Sat) | 1400 - 1700 | 65 or 3 course units | Lindsay Lim

The difference between a maze and a labyrinth as described in the book The Maze, “You enter a maze to lose yourself, whereas, you enter a labyrinth to find yourself.” A labyrinth is a path of meaning to be experienced and just trust that the path will lead you to where you need to be.

 

We will create a labyrinth string and tangle our way along the path with tangles in a “Reticula”. It can be a path of meaning, a metaphor for life through twists and turns, stopping to reflect and a journey to the centre of your deepest self and back out into the world with better understanding of who you are.

 

Note: Participants to bring basic Zentangle® Kit (01 Black Micron Pen, pencil, tortillon), eraser and ruler
