“The Veil Between the Worlds” ZEN DOODLE with CJ Shelton

  • Sat Oct 17, 1 p.m. - 3 p.m.

Dancing Moon Designs

Take your doodling to the next level! In this special Halloween themed doodle art workshop find inspiration from the ancient pagan legends and customs associated with the origins of ‘All Hallow’s Eve’ when it was believed the ‘veils between the worlds’ were thinnest and all manner of spirits could easily pass back and forth.

Zen doodling is the art of drawing beautiful intricate designs using sections of random patterns to make what are known as ‘zentangles’. When you zen doodle, you’re creating a miniature work of art, but also a mood, a focus and a state of mind.

By concentrating on drawing small blocks of patterns one at a time you ‘go with the flow’, letting your mind enter into a calming zen state. This allows you to follow through on impulsive thoughts and ideas giving you an unexpected finished result as well as an intriguing glimpse into your subconscious! There are many therapeutic benefits to zen doodling as well including increased focus, more patience, creative inspiration, lowered heart rate and blood pressure plus de-stressing time and relaxation.
