Carve a little bit of time for yourself and come and enjoy the world of doodling. Learn how to create a matrix and grid based pattern to further expand your “pattern vocabulary”.
This Creative Meditation art form is a gateway to relaxation, meditation and mindfulness and will help you achieve that wonderful Zen like meditative state, which aside from its sheer enjoy-ability, is so beneficial to both your mental and physical well-being, so put down the yoga mat and pick up a pen instead!
