Classes taught by Shannon & Keiden

  • Using Touch & Breath To Connect With Your Partner – This class explores the way touch and breath can be used to connect with yourself and your partner/s. This is a constantly evolving class, with new discussion and exercises to aid us in connecting through touch and breath. This class includes a series of hands on partnered exercises. Come with a partner, a friend, or a family member to do the matched exercises with.
  • Communication Breakdown Communication breakdown, it’s always the same. But it doesn’t have to be. Shannon and Keiden come to the proverbial table with their personal stories and experiences to bring a real and raw look at communication in relationships. In relationships, we have a responsibility to ourselves and to our partners to communicate, but it isn’t always easy. Through discussion and partnered exercises, we will share tips, tricks, and tools to navigate communication consciously and compassionately. 
  • Intro to Journey Work – Journey techniques can help us connect to infinite wisdom through meditative states that allow us to enter “non ordinary reality.” In these shifted states of consciousness we can find answers to help guide us in our lives and opportunities for deep healing. We will guide you on multiple short journeys in this class to help you learn techniques for self-exploration and self-healing.
