About the Author

Hi, I’m Shannon. I write on themes of self-realization, awakened activism, and reconnection with the natural world: reclaiming our full power as human beings.

As a student of psychology, I’m interested in how we perceive the world, and how that perception colors our experience and choices. As a long-time supporter of animal rights and environmental justice, I’m passionate about social change and nonviolent activism.

As a spiritual seeker, I’m fascinated to explore realms of reality that lie beyond our senses, and the traditions and cultures that have not yet forgotten them. And as a devoted student of the arts, I draw inspiration from great thinkers and dreamers of ages past, and hope to channel their beauty and wisdom into this modern moment.
