Shawna Pelton

Shawna Pelton

Executive Committee Member

Providing a framework with proven tools to strategize and facilitate the healing of unhealthy patterns of doubt, distrust & fear. Empowering the "I withing the we", I teach people how to develop essential skills for unleashing potential, build meaningful engaging relationships (with self and others) and regain lost trust following life’s difficult situations.

My background combines nearly 2 decades of passionate study and training under various teachings from the mystery schools, natural medicine, neuroscience, business coaching & people building.

My work has evolved over the years from herbal & holistic nutrition education, aesthetics, biontology, meditation, energy medicine, emotional healing, NLP, hypnosis, Conversational Intelligence(TM) and Executive Coaching

I really appreciate being grounded in the practical knowledge while embodying the spiritual nature of the work I do now that I’m free from any dogma of traditional contemporary teachings.


More importantly, I believe I’ve earned my real education by way of experience from working with over 2,000 people with various needs.
