Shannon

Shannon's passion is the healing arts. Having served as a Registered Nurse and Massage Therapist, she now practices herbalism, is a personal coach and facilitator of healing. She is a lover of plants and animals, and believes in the intrinsic value they offer to humans for healing and support.

A passionate champion for clean water and halting pollution, she founded the Anclote River Pick-up Project, a gathering of kayakers and paddlers who work hard to remove trash from the Anclote River. Over 2 tons of trash has been removed with the help of local residents and Pasco County Government.

She has been participating in transformative programs since 2006, and now coaches individuals using the powerful tools and wisdom she’s gained, leading them through their own breakthroughs that ripple positive change across communities. She earned her “Holistic Nutrition Practitioner Certificate” from the BodyMind Institute in 2013. She offers support and coaching in areas of spirituality, health and relationships.

Shannon's experience has led her to believe that all physical disease is a result of a spiritual imbalance or issue. She is a lifetime spiritual seeker, intuitive, energy worker, and empath. She is also an ordained Minister, and performs spiritual ceremonies, weddings, funerals, and baby dedications.

Shannon met her husband, Travis, in the Insurance profession in 2008, and is proud to be in partnership with him fulfilling their dream of healing the planet, both environmentally, and within the human experience, through Great Spirit Farm Healing & Retreat Center. Together, they raise their daughter, Maya, and enjoy being silly. Shannon enjoys nature, skydiving, kayaking, autocross racing, horseback riding, reading, writing, meditation, yoga, hiking, biking, travel, and exploring consciousness.

Travis

Travis’ heart for giving is evident by his 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 in developing a resilient and sustainable local economic community.

Travis is committed to sustainability (environmental and economic), permaculture, and being a local superhero to his community. He has completed numerous personal transformation courses, and has coached several similar programs, guiding others through their own personal breakthroughs, and sharing wisdom that makes a real difference.

He is a continual spiritual seeker, and true visionary. He is passionate about the revolutionary blockchain technology, and its ability to create equality for all humans across the globe. Travis’ talents also include airplane and automotive mechanics, engineering, being a handyman, and businessman.

As Secretary and Chief Taskmaster, Maya divides her time between collecting guests’ waivers, secretarial duties and ensuring that all guests feel welcome and cared for, especially children. She helps beautify cabins, lends her keen eye for design, and joyfully assists in keeping the property tidy and clean. Maya is learning valuable lessons in the many tasks of managing a non-profit organization, use of plants and animals as medicine, and the benefits of volunteering within the community.
