Transformative Arts Guelph 

Mary-Anne Shipley | Certified Zentangle® Teacher (CZT), SoulCollage® Facilitator * Ontario Certified Teacher, artist *musician *photographer

I am a woman of faith, a mentor and a mental health survivor. I believe in the transformative power of art to heal individuals, communities and our world. The expressive arts, including the Zentangle® Method, support my generative processes of discovery, integration and healing. I was trained by Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts, the founders of the Zentangle® Method, who describe it as: *an art form *a life skill * a tool *a perspective *an approach to mindfulness and * just plain fun! They explain that the practice of Zentangle, which puts real marks on real paper using eye/hand co-ordination, can be a counterbalance to technology’s screens. I have found this meditative practice easy to learn, intriguing, soulful, grounding and a great conversation starter! This art form is affordable and very portable. Come, tap into your creativity. Let’s tangle together!

Wellington Water Watchers

We seek constructive engagement with those who affect local water policy, and accountability from corporations. We ask that companies and policy makers apply the Precautionary Principle — proving no harm, beyond doubt, when engaged in projects that that could be harmful to our water resources.

We believe in preservation not just conservation. Our watershed supports many diverse forms of life. Our local ecosystem must be protected for the well being of all future generations.
