Ep 113 ~ Shannon Willis Healing the Mother Wound

Shannon Willlis Bio.jpg

Listen to this Episode Now...


I’m a ritual healing practitioner, ceremonialist, teacher and founder of Heart Path Studio, a non-profit organization in Athens, GA which aims to create a new folk culture of relating with the unseen world through the convergence of animistic and shamanic principles. My ancestors hail from the British Isles, France, and Cherokee, Ilini, and Choctaw nations. Committed to collective healing, I hold grounded, empathic, heart-centered ritual space which supports presence, trust, and community rooted in the ancient ways of healing as service to the Earth.

I have 25 + years of professional experience addressing the deep wounding of the feminine through social justice advocacy related to intimate partner violence, diversity, and the oppression of marginalized populations. I have a Masters degree in Professional Leadership and Counseling with a focus in Jungian and Gestalt modalities and use this training to support folks in honing their inner capabilities through connection with intuitive and spiritual resources as a means to shift through imbalances, embody deeper wisdom and earth-honoring purpose.

My life’s work is grounded in animistic reverence studied in depth, specifically within the teaching lineages of mentors whose backgrounds are in West African Diaspora, Eastern Mysticism, Nepali shamanism, as well as various other diverse indigenous paths, and northern European cultures. Having made a pilgrimage to Nigeria, I am a committed student and initiate of Ọbàtálá, and Ọ̀ṣun, in the Ifa/Orisa tradition of Yoruba-speaking West Africa, in the lineage of Olúwo Fálolú Adésànyà Awoyadé from Òdè Rẹ́mọ, Ogun state, Nigeria. Along with Olúwo Fálolú Adésànyà Awoyadé and Dr. Daniel Foor, my other teachers and mentors include Robinette Kennedy, Ph.D., Bhola Nath Banstola, Gail Gulick, Robert Moss, Sandra Ingerman, and Linda Fitch.

As a certified practitioner of the Ancestral Lineage Healing method created by Dr. Daniel Foor, I provide individual sessions, online and in person training specifically addressing the cultural wounding of the feminine through the Mother Wound, and assist in training new ancestral lineage healing practitioners. I also hold certification as a Usui Shiki Ryoho and Karuna Reiki® Master/Teacher

 I dream and practice joy daily in Athens, Ga along with my son and a treasure trove of 4 legged fur babies.

Earth Magic by Steven Farmer

Lotus Flower for Unfoldment

Lotus is one of my favorites because the roots are really rooted in the mud and muck.

Then the flower opens up anew every day to gather all that is meant for it.

In the evening as the sun goes down that flower closes.

It gives itself time to rest and properly integrate.

It mirrors the spiritual path, the natural enfoldment and the surrender to without forcing.

Waterfall for Effortless

The waterfull brings gracefulness & powerfulness.

It speaks to flowing around that which would otherwise impede. It further speaks to the carving the landscape over time.

Mother Mary Oracle by Alana Fairchild

This card brings the messaging around seeing Mother Mary’s light, her love & grace through the darkness.

The understanding of the purpose of our past suffering.

Light is then shone on the paradox around truly opening to life means being willing to die many deaths long before the death of our human bodies.

Ep 108 ~ Shannon Ledford Surrendering

SCL Ep 108 Bio.jpg

Listen to this Episode Now...


I am the daughter of Sandra & the mother of Satyana.

My people hail from Italy 🇮🇹 and the British Isles. 

My mother’s people hail from the lands around Genoa, Italy.  My grandmothers on my father’s lineage hail from the lands around Lucca, Italy.  My grandfathers in my father’s lineage hail from Great Britain by way of the islands of the north.

I grew up on the ancestral lands of the Pomo in Northern CA. I now reside on the ancestral land of the Cherokee in the mountains of Western NC near Asheville.

I create safe ritual space for deep connection with your ancestors.

I have sought belonging through my numerous iterations this lifetime.  Seeking the gifts & blessings from growing up as a farmer’s daughter in CA to my time as a corporate lawyer in Manhattan & as a travel photographer all over the world. Presently, I’m deepening into myself as a mother & ancestral healing practitioner.

All the threads of this life , my life, weave together in a unique way as I honor my people and the blessings they etched in my DNA.

I recently completed the Ancestral Medicine Practitioner training with Daniel Foor & now the rhythm of my life is informed deeply by my ancestors.  The healing of my blood lineage has been a potent & enlivening journey.  It is a wholly different, and welcome, experience for me to feel so resourced by my people in the unseen world.  It is an honor to hold safe ritual space for my clients to connect with and know their people more fully.

I honor my ancestors, the blood & bone that came before me and continues to live on within me & my daughter.

Santa Muerte Oracle by Fabio Listrani

This is a message of death & letting go as part of the continual cycle of rebirth. It is a reminder that all of the at our disposal in this lifetime is on loan to us and it is our responsibility to transform it in the most positive and beautiful way possible throughout our existence.

Release what is not working.

Know that birth here is death in the land of your ancestors and death here is a birth into the land of your ancestors.
