We always say that the Zentangle Method attracts really awesome people. We have had the pleasure of working with wonderful Certified Zentangle Teachers (CZT) all over the world and we are excited to share these wonderful people with the entire Zentangle Community. Through our series, CZT Family Tree, we will introduce individual CZTs.
Today, we are excited to introduce Heidi Kay!
Name: Heidi Kay CZT#: 33
Hometown: Live in Tarpon Springs FL.. originally from the Boston area and still identify strongly as a Bostonian!
Favorite tangle: Seriously? This is like asking me to pick a favorite child! BooFont by Joanna Quincey and Mooka are in a dead heat tie!
Favorite place to tangle: At a park where I can hear the birdies and breathe warm fresh air.
Favorite quote: Oh man. This is tough. These day though, I am finally all about embracing who I am and choosing to live my life in living color and authentically. A current favorite quote of mine in this regard reminds me not to beat myself up over the fact that it has taken me so long to finally do it:
“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.” E.E. Cummings
How I use the Zentangle Method in my life: Zentangle is not only my very favorite way to relax, it has completely changed my life with a great big bang that ripples through me more and more each day.
The philosophies that Zentangle encompasses – living in the present moment, no mistakes, anything is possible one pen stroke at a time, embracing imperfection and abandoning perfectionism, – now completely inform every aspect of my life.
Zentangle has been the primary catalyst that started me on a journey of self discovery and ignited in me a passion to live mindfully and authentically. And Zentangle has revealed to me that I am indeed a passionate artist who is now driven to teach and share the joy I find within it..
If I’m not tangling, you will find me.. Until I can retire? You will find me working my day job as the co-owner of a contract staffing firm, teaching Zentangle online, and embracing an “Empty Nester’s Lifestyle” – which usually includes lots of weekends riding out in the fresh air and traveling on our Goldwing Trike!
