Participants' feedback: 

* "Shannon transmits something that’s hard to put into words and she puts it into excellent words. I connect to her teaching as she is able to teach from the present moment, taking time and channeling what’s needed. The practice of the practitioner is profound work that seems essential to anyone that looks for clarity around intention, timing and investigating the vague realms of acting from expanded consciousness, be it the improviser, performer, teacher or body worker." 

** "My experience as a participant in "The practice of the practitioner" helped me to better understand cranial-sacral work on a fundamental level. With her extensive experience and breadth of knowledge, Shannon offers multiple strategies to dive into this subtle and profound work, using language, perceptual exercises and hands-on practice. Shannon facilitated many "Aha" moments for me during the weekend, and empowered me to have conviction in those insights. I deeply appreciate the workshop atmosphere she offers of a safe, focused and intimate setting for sharing and asking questions." 

*** "I found the WS very well! I felt very open and could connect more clearly to my own heart...and I felt that this is the most important. I also felt more connected to the universe and I could feel a deeper sense of compassion but I also left a bit confused (and I mean that in a positive sense)..."

**** ''I stood in the middle of the waves, witness all creatures inside the being rising up and fading away.´´
During the time with Shannon and other participants, i experienced how a life could be perceived with my hand, in a such humble way. I and you come into the field together, with permission, a lot of care and love. We evidence how the breath of life inhale and exhale from the center of the body, inside out and be thankful of the potency of life."
