Shannon lives and works in Ventura, CA. She has been a massage therapist since July of 1996, graduating with 600 hours of training that focused on Swedish massage, reflexology, meridian therapy, sports massage, hydrotherapy, general wellness, kinesiology and business management.
In June of 1999, she began her initiation to Reiki. By 2003 she had received her Master Certification. She has volunteered as a Reiki practitioner at the Cancer Center of Ventura County at St. John’s Hospital in Oxnard as well as hosts Community Reiki Share at Community Memorial Hospital and Coastal Communities Cancer Resource Center in Ventura. She enjoys sharing this profound healing work with all who feel ready to experience it.
In 2007, she stepped onto the Shamanic path by receiving the initiation rites of the Munay-Ki. From there she learned to gift these rites to others and began to host gatherings for those who felt called to this journey of healing. In 2012, she began to teach and mentor rite givers, as well. Along this journey, she became a full mesa carrier through the Inka Medicine Wheel, and has been blessed to assist others on this path of personal healing and transformation.
Shannon became an Ordained Minister through the Universal Life Church in 2013 and was initiated in Shamanic Reiki Drumming and Reiki Sonics. In 2017 she continued her Advanced Shamanic Studies with Celia Blackwood. In Autumn of 2017 and Spring of 2018 received Teachings, Rites and Blessings from Jose Luis Herrera.
Shannon recently became a graduate of Gaia School of Healing and Earth Education for Sacred Plant Medicine.
Personal healing and transformation are Shannon’s passion. Her love for people and the planet is what continues to inspire her in her daily life and growing work. She focuses on well-being as a way of life and trusts in the deep connection that this brings.
