Life Guide/Spiritual Facilitation with Shannon
We have all of the answers inside of us already....sometimes we just need a reminder. Do you feel stuck, or as if you have lost the ability to listen to your inner voice? Do you experience chronic pain that physicians can not diagnose the cause of? Do you feel like you constantly live in a space of fear, sadness or confusion? Are you having a hard time making a choice because nothing seems 'right'? No one deserves to feel like that. Take charge of your well being. Shannon offers private energy reading sessions at the studio as well as energy healing, life guidance and spiritual facilitation.. Using the chakra system, Shannon will tell you where your energy is blocked and the general reason for the blockage. If you would like to move forward from there, Shannon will help you learn how to recognize what energetic holding feels like in your body as well as giving you different techniques to release the energy and recognize patterns in your life that cause energetic holding and blockages. She uses a multilayered therapy approach that will help you learn to take control of your life by creating a deep, meaningful body mind connection as well as a profound level of trust in your intuition and your ability to navigate fear, anger and pain. Please know that this is deep work and you will be asked to look at some really challenging spaces in yourself. Finding your authentic self is not easy.....but it is the most rewarding thing you will ever do.

"Shannon has a unique ability to help you look inside yourself for the answers you're seeking. I came to her for help as I made a major difficult life change. ...I knew without a shadow of a doubt that I had a judgement-free safe place in her. She's made me realize I'm stronger than I was willing to give myself credit for. I hope to continue to seek out her guidance every chance I get. What she did for me in a couple hours is more than therapy has done for me in a couple weeks. Thanks, Shannon."

"This was our first pregnancy and, as can be imagined, we felt somewhat anxious about this incredible unknown. I had no idea what to expect in terms of bodily and mental experience. We participated in a delivery preparation course, which only left me more anxious. The rigorous, structured order of the lamaze breathing methods made me feel we, as a couple, should keep up with a pace which I couldn't fully relate. If he missed a beat, I got upset. If we didn't practice enough, I felt guilty. In the end, it just added more stress to an already intense equation. Working with you, I knew you could help us find a way to channel our communication as a couple in the most effective, natural way into the delivery room. Your work with each of us separately and with both of us together reminded me of our great, unique strength and made me remember that I already have all the answers. Your encouragement, experience and the space you opened for us (or reminded us of its existence) were invaluable. It made our experience together in the delivery room organic, natural and - surprisingly! - relaxed. I can't thank you enough!"

Dance Therapy and Authentic Movement with Michelledana
Dance Therapy: Sometimes we're just not able to find the right words necessary to help us heal; this is where Dance/Movement Therapy becomes a powerful tool. Dance/Movement Therapy is an expressive therapy that involves dance, movement and the practice of non-verbal communication. Through the use of dance and movement combined with one's personal emotional exploration you will be encouraged to discover insight, understanding, and strength in the ability to navigate through life's difficulties (such as, trauma, pain, anger, fear, and sadness, etc.). It will teach you how to remember and acknowledge with gratitude all of life's joys. Dance/Movement Therapy sessions will foster a welcoming, supportive, confidential, and safe space for all. This type of therapy is very effective for individuals that have suffered a sexual trauma or any other type of trauma that may cause one to disengage from the body. However ANYONE can enjoy the benefits of dance therapy, and it is a powerful tool in the search for an integrated mind, body and spirit. No dance experience is needed. Contact the studio to make an appointment.
Authentic movement: Do yourself an authentic favor and get together with your most authentic self! Be a witness to yourself as you move in witness of others. Be a witness to another as their movements move you. Authentic Movement is a movement meditation practice which involves moving with the eyes closed and awaiting an internal impulse to initiate movement. Moving with the eyes closed allows one to go to deeper places of the mind, encouraging inward reflection. Moving on impulse stirred from within enables one to move however and whenever they are compelled to. Authentic Movement involves the mover and the witness. While the mover moves they may come into direct contact with another mover; whatever response ensues will be up to each mover, perhaps they'll move together, perhaps not. No music is used, nothing is choreographed, nothing is planned, everything happens organically. Once all participants have had a chance to be a mover and a witness, everyone will come together to share their experiences, both as mover and witness, in a confidential, nurturing, supportive, and safe space. This very special class is an ongoing, weekly class held on Tues at 5:30-6:30 and is $15 for a drop in, or a regular class on a class card.
