REDiscover your joy
BECOME the person
you want to be
Let's get started!
When was the last time you let go and felt joy?
So many people think of you as the strongest woman in the room. You’re always there for whoever you think needs you. You’re the last person anyone would suspect is struggling.
But inside, you’re crumbling. You haven’t slept well in years. You don’t know how to stop working so hard or giving so much. You fret and doubt.
You want to have more joy and relaxed days but you keep waiting for them to arrive.
You’re holding off on joy until everything else is crossed off your to-do list.
You were taught that your feelings came last.
Time to change your mind.
Joyful creativity says, “Hey, let’s give it our best shot and improve as we go, a little bit more every day. ”
You can learn how to discover daily joy, the same way you learned how to drive a car. Making that habit improved your life. And then you practiced, bit by bit, day by day, until driving became a muscle memory.
Learn how to make your own joy into a lifelong habit.
it’s time to reDISCOVER YOUR JOY.
I understand you.
For nearly fifty years, I worried I wasn’t good enough. I feared and fretted and pretended everything was okay.
And then I had a mini-stroke.
I knew that I had to change my life. I learned to understand how my body kept the score of my traumatic childhood and how my well had run nearly dry. I learned to calm my nervous system to allow my mind and body to fully relax.
I started discovering my joy.
Learning to design my life for joy has changed me, deeply.
Now, I’m thriving.
I want you to thrive too.
YOU CAN rediscover YOur joy.
This workshop is intended for the many of us who came through a hard place.
Something happened to you.
Because of that, you were at the mercy of other people’s expectations for you.
YOUR MIND, BODY, AND LIFE WERE FORMED BY THAT HARD PLACE.
When something hard happened to you, your brain wired to protect you.
The hard part now is that you’re still living in that stress.
You exist on permanent high alert.
You live in a constant state of worry, trying to appease others.
You doubt yourself. You don’t trust your gut instincts.
You disassociate from the present moment to a safe place of floating.
Your body is still keeping the score.
Does this sound familiar?
You’re not alone.
You can allow yourself more joy.
I’ll guide you through the curriculum built on insights from neuroscience, discoveries about the effects of trauma, the science of making a habit that sticks, and communal experiences.
We’ll meet online, for 4 weeks or 8 weeks, depending on which path you choose.
Here are some of the questions we’ll be answering together:
What are your joys? And why do they matter?
What if you were curious about how your nervous system affects your joy?
What if you could make a habit of joy?
How can you share your joy and help others?
Between each session, you’ll receive emails with questions, prompts, videos, and practices to try in your life that day.
I’ll be your guide.
The transformation will come through your own work.
Shauna is a kindred spirit as a teacher — real and down to earth. She shares so much goodness with us who attend her sessions. I have found such solace and support in what Shauna shares. The companionship I find with Shauna and all the women from around the world she has brought together on Zoom? It helped save my sanity through the incredibly tough time of COVID lockdowns.
Shauna, as the host, helps us all find good in the world and our personal lives. She doesn’t gloss over the hard times. In fact, she acknowledges the trauma most of us have in our lives. She has been through it. She’s honest. She isn’t a fake purveyor of toxic positivity. She’s honest. She’s always rising.
Shauna does the research and shares the science with us.. She also offers us perspectives that might get us through our days with more joy. She also has a great, hearty laugh!
I’m grateful that Shauna is here.

“The world needs Shauna’s work! This is not hasty positivity nor artificial optimism. This is Shauna, meeting us where we are with genuine compassion; guiding us back to our own wisdom; walking alongside us as we examine what might be blocking the brilliant parts of life. We may not always be able to control what happens, but with practice we can know and experience a more constant joy. Shauna’s work has changed my life. It will change yours too.”

I am so grateful the universe gave me what I needed — Shauna’s workshop. I learned so much about myself in this journey, things I needed to know. My life has changed this past year, but after this class, I realized I can handle those changes. I know now that I’m my own hero. Thank you, Shauna.
