Today, we are excited to introduce Mark Duran


Name: Mark Duran                                            CZT#: 24

Hometown: Delavan, Wisconsin U.S.A.

Favorite tangle: Purk

Favorite place to tangle: At the VA with other veterans, I along with 11 veterans did a group ZIA entry of the US Map for the veterans creative art contest and won first prize.

How I use the Zentangle Method in my life: The Zentangle Method has been a blessing as a tool to escape from chronic pain and PTSD. When I am tangling it feels like my mind blocks out the pain messages to my brain and there is a sense of calm that I've felt no where else.

My favorite story or memory about teaching the Zentangle Method is: I teach several veteran groups, one in particular is the senior veterans in their 80's and 90's on the 9th floor of the VA hospital in Milwaukee WI. Some of these wonderful patriots are WWII vets. A few months ago while I was preparing the room for class a nurse went to gather the gentleman for another fun filled session. As she asked one veteran if he wanted to join the Zentangle group. According to the nurse, he said: " oh' yeah", and arose from his bed and put on his shiny white shoes in sharp contrast to his hospital clothes. He shuffled into the room with a little dance move exclaiming he was ready for the Zen "Tango" class. After explaining that it was more of an art therapy class than a dance class he sat down. We asked what kind of music he liked and he said Motown. I found a Motown mix on my phone and we started the Zentangle Method. It was a great session where everyone was in full zen mode for the majority of the time. I was elevated to see that even though he was tangling those white shiny shoes were dancing under the table the entire time.

Through my experiences as a CZT, I have learned: How amazing it is to see that each and every students tangles are a direct reflection of their own unique personality.

 If I’m not tangling, you will find me…: Spending quality time with my family, especially with my three month old baby girl.

  • Wow! Inspiring story and so heartfelt! I have been trying to teach some Zentangle classes to Canadian Military Veterans but so far it has not worked out but I will keep trying. I know it would help soldiers and their families too, your story has confirmed that. Thank you for reaching out to the Veterans and for sharing, I am sure they are grateful for your generosity!

  • Wonderful Zentangle Map, certainly worthy of a BIG BLUE RIBBON!!!!

    Proving once again that it is possible to learn Zentangle “one stroke at a time”!
    I’m so happy to see some vets doing the “Zentango”. There is no question in my mind that that project was a lot of work, strategically thought out.
    Congratulations to you all!

    I hesitate to ask what your next project will be.
    Really loved this one………

    Clap if you are a BT lover, too.

  • In my town there are lots of homeless Vietnam War vets. I know one in particular. He lives in a tent encampment. I am in my mid 70s, a single woman. My art studio where I teach Zentangles is not far away from his tent encampment. Should I offer him and 4 other Vietnam Vets a Zentangle session? Would this be perfectly safe for me to do or should I have some “muscle” around or what?
