Meet Russell & Shannon

Shannon & Russell’s paths collided in a unique way giving a rebirth, “a new genesis”, to each other and to The SHIFT Foundation as they welded their energy, knowledge and skills together through part of their own awakening path!

About Us

Our Heart & Soul goes into this Work

We feel like we “were made for this time”, to awaken and raise with the wave of consciousness sweeping over the planet, as some are dancing with Shadow and others relearning how to dance with the Light!
