We are thrilled to introduce to you yet another wonderful group of people who attended our seventeenth Certified Zentangle Training in Providence, Rhode Island in November 2014.

Lot's of pix (Rick remembered to take more photos at this seminar!), ideas and fun below.


Welcome CZT Class XVII !

Please join us as we welcome the Certified Zentangle Teachers (CZT) from our 17th seminar:

Once more, wonderful people traveled from near and far to attend this seminar. We set a new recorder in this class with students from thirteen countries:
    • Belgium
    • Canada
    • Czech Republic
    • Denmark
    • Israel
    • Italy
    • Japan
    • Netherlands
    • Singapore
    • South Africa
    • Taiwan
    • United Kingdom
    • United States

As in previous seminars, many students shared samples of their Zentangle Inspired Art:


The mosaics were magnificent:


At this seminar Jason Poole, CZT (Seminar 10), returned to regale us in word and song. He shared moving and fun stories of Zentangle adventures - everything from a public presentation at a Chicago Zen Center to his life in a traditional Hawaiian community. 

Jason finished with a most enjoyable gift . . . he performed a song he had written, "Zentangle Hula."

Thank you, Jason!

The last time Jason was at seminar there was a student doing henna tattoos for other students, and coincidentally there was a henna artist at this seminar, too.

Here's a cadent tangleation in henna:


Our grandsons Wyatt and Ramsey shared how they tangle ING:


As I mentioned, I (Rick) remembered to take more pictures at this seminar:

That's Mary Lou Verla, CZT, (above left) who works with us at Zentangle HQ, with Laura Liu, CZT (Seminar 4), from Taiwan. Next is Laura and all the students who attended from Taiwan:


We have created this companion blog post so that you can enjoy larger images of these pictures and additional images not included here.



Zentangle Workshop at Kripalu - February 6-8

We are doing a "Zentangle Weekend with Rick and Maria" at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in Western Massachusetts on February 6 through 8.

This is an amazing facility with world class healthy food, yoga classes, hot tubs, and beautiful countryside . . . even in February!

This is a fun weekend with total focus, immersion in tangling - black ink on white square tiles. Our daughters, Molly and Martha will be there also. We all have great opportunities for interaction and exploring the wonders of all things Zentangle.

This will be our second weekend workshop at Kripalu. Our first one was so much fun (and overbooked) that our good friends at Kripalu asked if we'd do another. And here it is! (Please note that this is not a certification seminar.)

There are still spaces available.

See you there!

We look forward to all the adventures that this year offers.


Thank you for enjoying them with us!



Best always,

Rick, Maria, Bijou and all of us at Zentangle
