How I use the Zentangle Method in my life: I discovered Zentangle in my life when I was going through a personal and emotional crisis and Zentangle helped me overcome those difficult moments of insecurity and low confidence in myself. After my certification, I left my previous job to dedicate myself full time to be a CZT and to commit to teach this method and accompany people like me who were going through difficult situations in their lives. I also understood that Zentangle increases the creative potential of people, so I extended my training by doing a master in Coaching and a certification in CPS (Creative Problem Solving) in order to expand my tools to help people to develop inner personal growth from their own personal stories.

My favorite story or memory about teaching the Zentangle Method is: I have been teaching zentangle for 5 years and I am still fascinated by the amazement with which people rediscover their own dormant creativity. People who have had difficulties to look inward with other tools, discover creative meditation, as I understand it, and they are able to discover their full potential. I have many many stories that I could tell you about the people I have taught zentangle and how they tell me that it has impacted them in their lives. I have received countless messages from people during the confinement of Covid19. During this confinement I have been doing live workshops every day to accompanying those people who are alone in their homes and who are going through complicated situations. People who have lost loved ones or close friends, or people having deep feelings of loneliness and isolation, even depression and hopelessness. Even nurses and health personnel who also were needing disconnection and respite from their daily work. I am very happy because the initiative it´s being a big success and is currently reaching many people and being followed largely, getting a lot of followers. I have been receiving numerous messages of people telling me that they have practicing Zentangle and following my workshops and how this has helped them to cope with these difficult situations and to trust a little more in their recovery and their future. This have been and immense joy for me and truly a feeling of purpose and contribution in this challenging time we are facing.

A couple of weeks ago I did a course to benefit the World Food Bank, where we donated € 500, thanks to the contribution of the people who signed up for the workshop.

Through my experiences as a CZT, I have learned: The huge capacity for creativity that we all have and our potential to look inward with different tools and methods, all of them aimed at learning a little more about ourselves and appreciating our unique lives.

If I’m not tangling, you will find me…: I love to travel, visit new places and learn exciting and different things for around the world, and above all I love to continue learning new tools for personal growth and activities that spark my creativity. I really enjoy reading, practicing yoga, meeting with friends ... If I didn't work as CZT I would have loved to be an oenologist (I love to know the stories behind each wine!)

Here are some comments from Alicia's instagram students.. 

"Thanks to your classes my days pass happier, it is food for my soul. I am more afraid of running out of paper than of running out of food! Thank you"

"Hello Alicia, I want to thank you for these daily meditations. I know it is a great effort for you to be there every day and you don't know how I appreciate it. A part form being confined for a month now, days before the quarantine I lost my partner in an accident and it has been really hard. Your meditations are the only thing that have given me peace and tranquility. I thank you from the bottom of my heart."

"Thank you, Alicia, for your time and for showing us something that I did not think existed in my life and that would be so good for me."

  • Encontré a Alicia por casualidad al empezar la cuarentena, y llevo tangleando con ella desde el 15 de Marzo. Apasionada de su trabajo, nos ha estado guiando diariamente a más de 1.500 personas de todas las partes del mundo; meditar de su mano es todo un lujazo.

    Tan enganchada estoy a este método que tanto me está ayudando que quiero seguir aprendiendo y mejorando más y más; ahora formo parte del club de los jueves en su academia on line y estoy FELIZ 😀

    Gracias 🙏🏻 Alicia por todo, por darnos tanto 🥰

  • Thank you Alicia for your time, your dedication and your spirit. You rock! I enjoyed every single day of your classes. It brought me back to the essence of Zentangle. Every day was a lovely experience. And “respira”, “no es importa” and “qué bonito me esta quedando” will forever be written in my heart. Although I use these words myself in my own language, they sounded even better in Spanish! May you and your loved ones be happy, creative and safe for eternity. Thank you.
