About Us

We are a private church that regularly communes with divinity via ritualistic meditation using a sacred plant sacrament in Mother Nature. Our group sessions are small and intimate with no more than 10 members per session. We believe in the importance of a sustainably, ethically, and sacredly prepared sacrament, and we make most sacraments onsite with great reverence and care. In addition to the sacrament, we use a variety of supportive plants, live music, and energetic purification to expand consciousness.

We embrace 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, instruments, 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!

Meet our Facilitators

Shannon

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," originating 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 of 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. She has been divorced twice and is blissfully married now for over 10 years, and gets the struggles of creating a happy, connected partnership. She is a birth doula, coach, mom, plant sacrament facilitator, herbalist, and 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 expanding consciousness, healing, learning, and connecting to God.

Shannon is an advocate for a 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 have 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 partner 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 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 spirituality and 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 were 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.

Most recently, Travis assisted the WellCome OM Center in Spring Hill, Florida with the 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.

Meet our Support Team

Maya

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 members feel welcome and cared for, especially children. Maya is learning valuable lessons in the many tasks of managing a non-profit church, the 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).

Kyle

Kyle joined the GSF team in 2020, and boy has it been fun to watch him grow! His story is a miracle he created with his dedication and commitment to his spiritual growth. His enthusiasm, strength, determination, kindness, and willingness to help with whatever is asked of him are remarkable. He loves to create and brings his art to all he touches. We are grateful for his creative skills, work ethic, and thoughtfulness.

He is a father, water enthusiast, animal lover, reader, and music lover. He practices breathwork, QiGong, meditation, and keeps us in shape with his personal training routines. Kyle has a heart of gold.

Volunteers

Our church grows largely due to the members who volunteer and woofers who support us through their labor, talents, knowledge, and generosity. Some volunteers live with us like family for a time, and we learn, grow, and support our spiritual evolution together. We are eternally grateful to them. While our woofers 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 specially acknowledge here are Jeff, Garrett, Linda, Jennifer, Matt, and Kim. Thank you for being part of our lives and may every step of your journey be one of presence and gratitude.
