Zentangle at Asia Plateau

1.Caux Scholars find tangling captivating!

Practically each and every participant ( 18 of them) of the first ever edition of the 21 days 'Caux Scholars program' at the campus of Initiatives of Change, Asia Plateau, Panchgani enjoyed learning the Zentangle method of creating beautiful pieces of  art putting pen to the paper, one stroke at a time.

The scholars came from various countries- Nepal, Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Armenia, Kenya, and India to name a few! Their focus was on Conflict Resolution, Peace building and sustainability. They found Zentangle method as an interesting tool to help agitated person to calm down!

Since the class took place post dinner, and went on till 11 pm, some of the scholars continued their tangling excitement into the next morning sessions!! Zentangle can become addictive!

2. New Interns at IofC:

If the Caux scholars took to tangling early January, a fresh batch of new interns at the IofC campus simply got mesmerised by the zentangle method early February! They too came from the different parts of the World. Some one from UK, to somebody from Kashmir, Shimla and Lucknow, and another from Tibet.

The class was only for over an hour, but they all picked the basics very well. Here is what they created as a 'Thank You' note to me:

One of the Afghan caux scholars was so taken in by the Zentangle method that she immediately ordered out on line the book The Beauty of Zentangle and no sooner she received it in Afghanistan, she flashed it on the facebook with all her excitement!

Zentangle is going places!
