99: Conscious Connections – Shannon Hernandez

Welcome to our second episode in the Conscious Connections series with Mel! Today, Mel is connecting with Shannon, a long time friend and kindred spirit.

Shannon Hernandez is 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 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.

Thanks for tuning in, family!
