Can you make C - I - O - S and a dot?

Then YOU can ZenTangle

zen tangleJoin us for an unforgettable group where you can immerse yourself in the meditative world of pen strokes and support while you create beautiful patterns. Each week we will explore a dementia caregiver topic to enhance your confidence in caregiving. We will discuss topics while Tangling. Whether you're experienced in the art of ZenTangle or just a doodler, we will guide you on a journey of compassionate support, self-expression and mindful relaxation.

No artistic background or talent is required – our group is designed for all skill levels. You will leave with a newfound appreciation for the art form and the ability to create stunning designs while you achieve some inner peace when you need it.

Pamela Atwood is a Certified ZenTangle Teacher.

Both groups will meet every Saturday (Zentangle for Caregivers at 9:30am, ZenTangle for Anxiety and Depression at 11:30). Groups will run for 60-90 minutes.

Cost is $30/person per session or $100/month and includes materials which will be mailed to you. Trying the group once does not commit you to future sessions.
