October 2018 was a dream come true experience! I traveled to United States, for only, purposeful reason, was to meet RickRoberts and MariaThomas, the duo-couple behind the Zentangle! My husband, my kid and family are my backbone and they are the reason behind my individual choice and decision. On 28th October, morning, I reached the grand Providence Biltmore Hotel and I was very affectionately welcomed by the former Teachers. My friend Terri, traveled an hour, just to meet me. And she took me around the downtown. We had heart-to heart conversation all through those hours. At evening 4pm, our first Zentangle Seminar -32 commenced!
I met the most wonderful people in there. I think tears and laughter were the most common experience and outcome throughout the time in the Zentangle Seminar. Each one carried a deep resounding story to the seminar, which time and again we kept listening and also cheered each other. We tanglers found a venue of sharing and caring, communicate our emotions to our heart contentment through the beautiful miniature zentangle artworks we created. It was a four days of celebration, embracing Zentangle by thought, word and deed. It was a very purposeful event, and also it gave us an opportunity to tell it to the world that such kind of art exists still deeply into this world. I know, that I made few friends from the seminar who are going to stay with me for lifetime. Attending the Teacher Training Seminar wasn’t just an achievement award, but it was a soulful journey through the beautiful Zentangle Method of drawing; that can be easily translated in the way life has to be lived.
With my best sister friend, Philadelphia!
