We are a private church that regularly communes with God via ritualistic meditation using a sacred plant sacrament in Mother Nature. Our group sessions are small and intimate with no more than 5-10 members per session. We believe in the importance of sustainably, ethically, and sacredly prepared sacrament, and we make our sacrament onsite with great reverence and care.
In addition to the sacrament, we use a variety of supporting plants, live music, and energetic purification.
We welcome people of all faiths, race, and sexual orientation, allowing the plants to guide each person according to their individual needs. We care. We care about the collective home we share, Mother Earth. We care that people have a safe place to grow spiritually. We care about you, exactly as you are.
Here you’ll find a few of the supporting tools that we use in our services and retreats, including herbal preparations for microdosing and daily use, smudge supplies, teas, chakapas, and personal spiritual guidance. Our church is mainly supported by donations from our members, and also by sales from our website by kind people like you. Thank you!
To expand consciousness as a path to contribute to the spiritual development of the human being, to transmute and ascend suffering and limitation, and for the improvement of his/her/they/their intellectual qualities and moral virtues.
We envision a healthy, spiritually-conscious planet, in harmony and balance, ecologically, economically, and within all living beings, from the micro to the macro, with all systems nourishing and supporting one another in love.
We value You. Every living thing is a divine creation, imbued with their own special qualities and talents. We value Religious Freedom. We value Integrity, Transparency, Courage, Vulnerability, and the Spirit of Love that connects us all.
Meet our Facilitators
A former Registered Nurse and Massage Therapist, Shannon is what some might call a transformation junkie, always seeking to grow and integrate what she has learned, and share it with others. Since she was a child, she has known her purpose was to “grow and be better.” (That’s youthful verbiage for transformation.) She has devoted her life to connecting with the “Great Spirit,” orginating within the Christian church and later expanding to embrace all spiritual truths.
She has over 30 years of experience with psychedelics and healing arts, and over 20 years of education in transcendental philosophies. She is experienced in making sacraments with Master Plants. and makes herbal remedies with local medicinal plants. Shannon has overcome addictions and understands the complexities in setting oneself free. In her 20’s, Shannon suffered from chronic pain and debilitating asthma. She spent many years following the medical model of treatment, including numerous prescriptions and narcotics. She is pain free since 2007, and 99% asthma free. Blissfully married now, she has been divorced twice, and gets the struggles of creating a happy, connected partnership. She is a coach, mentor, mom, plant sacrament facilitator, and an ordained minister. She’s a lover of people, plants and animals, and believes in the deep, intrinsic value that Mother Nature offers to humans for healing, learning and connecting to God.
Shannon is an advocate for natural birth, and is available for doula services, including using plant sacraments during labor to help mother and baby to work together and reduce birth trauma.
A passionate champion for clean water and halting pollution, she founded the Anclote River Pick-up Project, a gathering of paddlers who work hard to remove trash from the Anclote River in New Port Richey, FL. Over 2 tons of trash has been removed with the help of local residents and Pasco County Government.
She is an author and is currently working on several book projects.
Shannon met her husband and fellow facilitator, Travis, in the Insurance profession in 2008, and is proud to be fulfilling their dream of awakening the planet, one person at a time. Together, they raised their daughter, Maya, and still enjoy family time together. Shannon loves spending time with family and friends, nature, skydiving, kayaking, horseback riding, reading, writing, dream analysis, meditation, yoga, hiking, travel, and of course, exploring consciousness.
Travis’ heart for giving is evident by his history of service on numerous community service projects. His natural leadership and passion for equal access to healthy food was instrumental in creating the Pasco County Food Policy Advisory Council, and he served as its 1st Chairman. He was a Lead Facilitator of the 1st Community Garden in the City of New Port Richey. He was Founder and President of Nature Coast Real Food Project, a non-profit teaching people the benefits of chemical-free food. And he was Chairman of the Green Commerce Association, a non-profit dedicated to supporting and encouraging businesses and residents of West Pasco, FL in developing a resilient and sustainable local economic community. Most recently, Travis assisted the WellCome OM Center in Spring Hill, Florida with installation of their organically maintained landscaping.
Travis is committed to sustainability (environmental and economic), permaculture, and being a local superhero to his community. Since 2011, he has completed numerous personal transformation and spiritual education courses, and has coached several similar programs, guiding others through their own personal breakthroughs, and sharing wisdom that makes a real difference. He is working to transform his own inner state so he can be the best support for others in their healing process. He’s a spiritual seeker, and visionary. He received his ministerial ordination in 2015.
Travis is passionate about the revolutionary blockchain technology, and its ability to create equality for humanity across the globe. Travis’ talents also include airplane and automotive mechanics, engineering, being a handyman, and businessman.
Travis is the loving husband to Shannon, his fellow facilitator, and proud father-figure to her daughter, Maya. Together they enjoy fulfilling their mutual dream of helping others heal and grow spiritually through Great Spirit Farm. Travis also enjoys nature, swimming, kayaking, autocross racing, hiking, biking, music, travel and exploring consciousness.
Meet our Support Team
Maya is Shannon & Travis’ daughter. She’s an old soul, and has a rare gift for empathy. Her natural ability to connect with others is not commonly seen in youths her age. She has completed personal development courses for teens and easily empowers those around her to be their best.
Maya uses her critical eye to see what’s missing and pitches in where needed. She helps keep the Church “to do” list updated. She helps with secretarial duties, lends her keen eye for design, helps beautify the grounds, and joyfully assists in keeping the property tidy. She’s skilled at ensuring all guests feel welcome and cared for, especially children. Maya is learning valuable lessons in the many tasks of managing a non-profit organization, use of plants and animals to connect to God, and the benefits of volunteering within the community.
Maya is an avid reader, swimmer, rock climber, sailor, surfer, wordsmith, thrill-seeker, and nature lover (except mosquitos).
Our church is what it is largely due to the volunteers who support us through their labor, talents, knowledge, and generosity. Many volunteers live with us like family for a time, and we learn, grow and support our spiritual evolution together. We are grateful to them. While our volunteers are consistently evolving, we try to have current long-term volunteers posted here, to honor their gifts and contribution. Past volunteers who stayed with us for an extended time, whom we consider family, and wish to acknowledge here are: Jeff, Garrett, Linda, Kyle and Kim. Thank you for being part of our lives and may every step of your journey be one of presence and gratitude.
