Here’s the book’s “Welcome” . .
“Vitality requires original contribution.”

“I don't know why nobody told you how to unfold your love.”
“Beauty will save the world.”
Why do so many people benefit so much from practicing the Zentangle Method?
Why does drawing in a Zentangle way relieve pain and suffering?
I think it’s because the more you express your individual nature as a contribution to this world, the more you increase your vitality. And the more you increase your vitality, the better you feel and the more you heal.
With the Zentangle Method, you can easily express your individual nature within an elegance of limits that gravitates towards beauty. Through this redeeming practice, you learn to appreciate yourself and what you create. You discover that everything you create, one stroke at a time, can be beautiful, vital, and meaningful — for yourself and for the world.
That’s my hypothesis and that’s the theme of this book.
Do you have a story of relief or healing related to the Zentangle Method? If you do, would you to send it to me? It can be about you. It can be about some one you’ve shared the Zentangle Method with.
In case I use your story in the book, please tell me if you want me to use your name or not. If your story is about someone else, I won’t use their names without their written permission.
I made the image at the beginning of this blog from a PhotoShop combination of some of Maria’s Zentangle art and her “Peas on Earth” painting. I love its suggestion of an underlying “pattern-ness” to this world and how that resonates with our Zentangle approach. Perhaps it will be the cover for this book.
Please send your story by email to email@example.com and put “Book” as the subject line . . . so it doesn’t get lost in the usual flood of email.
Thank you in advance for your stories!
With all best regards,
