Live Awakened: Life Coaching & Reiki Energy Sessions

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” ~ Rumi

I offer 3 types of 1:1 sessions:

  • Reiki Energy Healing
  • Life Coaching
  • Life Coaching + Reiki Energy Healing

These sessions are enriching and transformative.  You will clear out old thoughts, limiting behaviors and stagnant energy that may be interfering with your ability to connect more deeply to your intuition, creativity and self-compassion.

In working with Shannon, you will discover mindful tools that support your healing and awakening journey. These tools will help you feel empowered, inspired and excited to thrive in your life as you reconnect to your true self.  You’ll feel more mentally clear, open for change, calm and ready to walk forward with courage.

Living an authentic, awakened and empowered life is your birthright.

Life is too short not to experience the joy of feeling energized, balanced and at peace.  It’s time to break free of worry, doubt and anxiety so you can connect to the wisdom within you and share your gifts with the world.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is an energy healing art that intentionally channels universal life force energies to promote balance, healing and well-being. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words.  Rei represents the source of energy – universal – and ki represents life force energy and the movement of that energy within us and all around us.

We are all made of energy, and when we have mental, physical or emotional blocks in the body, our energy also gets blocked. This can compromise our health, wellbeing and overall outlook on life.  The beautiful and gentle practice of Reiki helps clear the blocks and bring the body back to a more harmonious and vibrant state.

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-discovery that everyone can use. Also, while Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. There is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not.  It’s an overall feeling you walk away with that you will notice the most.

Reiki promotes healing by activating the relaxation response and helping the body to balance itself from a very deep level.

A treatment is deeply relaxing and treats the whole person – body, mind and spirit – creating many other benefits that will have a ripple effect in your life.

Reiki is an energy healing practice that is usually done by the practitioner placing their hands in a series of positions on or slightly above the body. The Reiki practitioner assists the recipient by channeling pure Universal life force energy into the body to help move stagnant energy and to break through blockages to bring balance back to their life force. The practitioner doesn’t heal, but rather holds space for the recipient to heal themselves.

I love Reiki because it supports your body’s intuition and allows it to heal itself.  People who have experienced Reiki sessions say that they feel more content, clear, peaceful, relaxed and have decreased feelings of stress, fear, anxiety, as well as a reduction in physical ailments. It can help relieve mental, emotional and spiritual blocks, as well as pain and other imbalances in the body. Reiki can help remove blocks in our mind, body and emotions and help with emotional difficulties, relationship problems, self-worth issues, stress reduction, anxiety relief, moving through fear and more.

How to schedule a session:

Once you purchase a session, you’ll receive an email with a calendar link and information on accessing our scheduled Zoom call.  You’ll want to set aside 60 minutes (or 90 depending on which session you select), preferably in a place that is quiet, where you can relax and won’t be interrupted. (However, if you do get interrupted that’s no problem.)

Reiki energy sessions include a brief conversation to talk about anything you feel is important for the session.  You’ll then get in a comfortable position either seated or lying down.  I’ll lead you through a short guided meditation and body scan, a full reiki energy healing session and we’ll wrap up with an intuitive insight to close the session.  These sessions are deeply relaxing, healing and intuitive.  You’ll see below that I also offer life coaching sessions without reiki, as well as a life coaching + reiki combo session.

Feel free to email me with any questions.

Life Coaching:

$150, 60 minutes

60 minute session + one check-in follow-up the week after our session through email or the Voxer audio app.  All sessions are currently virtual on Zoom and recorded.

This session will help you process your thoughts and feelings and create a simple mindful action plan moving forward with accountability, support, compassion and guidance.

What is Life Coaching?

So often we find ourselves stuck in old stories about who we think we should be or how we think we should live our lives – and we’re left feeling confused, frustrated and overwhelmed.

These stories cause fear and anxiety, and contribute to self-doubt, low sense of self-worth and disconnection from our authentic self. We end up missing our lives, feeling lost while running on overdrive – doing too much but feeling like we’re never doing enough.

It’s time to change our stories.

What is holistic life coaching and spiritual mentoring?

Holistic Life Coaching and Spiritual Mentoring is a powerful practice that helps you access your highest potential in a deep, transformative way.  It is holistic in nature, which means we explore the connection between your mind, body and spirit.  
When you awaken to how your thoughts effect your body and energy levels, you can start to make the changes necessary to bring the them into union, which leads to a healthy foundation for your life.
We all have blind spots and so often we repeat the same thoughts and behaviors that keep us feeling limited and unhappy.  Holistic life coaching not only helps you break free of the obstacles that keep you feeling stuck, but it invites you to reconnect to your true nature and purpose, all while creating a mindful action plan for a more prosperous future.

Life coaching inspires you to live in harmony to your dreams so you don’t stay stuck in your fears.

My life coaching sessions are for women who want to live a life that is a reflection of who they truly are, and who want to experience their fullest potential and brilliance while creating a life of clarity, courage, creativity, connection and contentment.

Life coaching is a powerful practice that supports your desire to live an authentic, empowered and intentional life.

I offer a unique style of holistic life and spiritual coaching where I merge my life coaching training and 15 years of yoga, mindfulness and meditation teaching with my intuition, creativity, compassion and business sense.

During our time together, I become your supportive mentor, an accountability partner, a listening presence and nurturing guide who offers you a safe space to explore who you are, and who you are becoming.

I offer encouragement, non-judgement, motivation and practical techniques that will help you create mindful action as you move towards your life, personal and business goals.

$180, 90-minutes

As a mom of two young boys, I often feel overwhelmed, exhausted and depleted. Reiki with Shannon left me feeling so relaxed, both mind and body. This feeling lasted for a while after the session too! Shannon has a gift of being present with people on a deep level. During my session, I felt seen, heard, and cared of. After my Reiki session, I felt a shift in myself like becoming unstuck from mud. The subtle energetic shifts experienced during the Reiki sessions left me feeling lighter and more positive. Shannon is a very gifted healer, and I am so grateful for the positive shifts she has helped me make in my life over the past few years.



I am feeling peaceful, grounded, and have a clearly identified practice to help me integrate self-care into my daily routine following my “Live Awakened Reiki Session” with Shannon Kinney-Duh, founder of “A Free Spirit Life”.

Shannon has a gift for creating a calm space with her magically relaxing voice—just being in her presence is healing. She patiently listened to me during our conversation before my session and intuitively shared ideas to help me address my desire to connect with my heart-center on a daily basis.

My reiki session included a guided meditation, light touch, and relaxing music. When I stood up after my reiki session, my whole body felt grounded. Shannon ended our session with an angel card reading that delivered the perfect message for me in the moment—“Life created me to be fulfilled. I trust Life and Life is with me at every turn…”

My Live Awakened Reiki Session left me feeling calm, confident, and connected to the energy of the earth. I took a phone call from one of my besties shortly after my session with Shannon. My friend commented on the peaceful quality of my voice. If you are seeking direction, grounding, or peace in your life, a Live Awakened Reiki Session with Shannon Kinney-Duh is just what you need!”

My first session with Shannon was absolutely amazing!  Shannon has such a warm, kind presence that I felt welcomed and supported from the moment that I walked in.  She fully explained everything that would happen during our session and made sure that I was comfortable every step along the way.  The session exceeded my expectations and I left feeling recharged, refreshed and relaxed.  Shannon is a gifted practitioner and I would highly recommend her to anyone.  I look forward to working with her again in the future.

My Reiki session with you was amazing. Your gentle approach and explanation made it relaxing. As the work being done on the Chakras I felt the heat transfer from one to the other and the wow was in me. It help me process some emotions. The rest of the weekend I felt relaxed, my anxiety had left giving me the opportunity to be. I am grateful for this opportunity.

It had many years since my one and only reiki session. Shannon took extra time and care to explain her process. Shannon’s calm and caring way had me feeling relaxed and open to all the sensations that came during the session. When I was done, I asked Shannon what she felt from me and she said ‘joy’. It brought tears to my eyes, because joy is the word that I am focusing on in my life. The next day while meditating, I felt warmth move through my chakras. It was surprising and wonderful, I had never experienced anything like it while meditating. I told Shannon about the experience and we realized she was doing her own self reiki in the room below me. That experience really solidified for me, the power of energy and how it creates an environment from which one can live their most purposeful life of joy.

This was my first ever Reiki session.  I went in with an open heart and mind.  During the session I felt incredible warmth, energy, and intuition from Shannon.  Afterwards she touched on a couple things that really hit home for me: one was a mantra that I had been saying to myself just a few hours before, however I had not shared this with her beforehand.  She also talked about where I carry worry and how she sent healing energy to these areas.  Later in the week I experienced certain situations which would typically cause me distress.  I felt these situations roll off my back as drops of water.  Typically I would see or feel such things as knots bound up inside of me.  It was absolutely freeing and healing!

I loved how comfortable you made me feel in this session.  I could definitely feel energy traveling throughout my body.  Your feedback was really powerful for me.  I really liked the touch of the tarot card reading at the end.  It made this session very personal. I’ve felt lighter the last several days since my time with you.  Thank you!

I am a casual “reiki-er” – when it is available at a retreat or spa sign me up.  I truly enjoy the feeling and connection.  Shannon’s session truly provide me that and more!  Going in with an open heart and mind, allowed me to be present and feel the energy throughout my entire body.  Her ability to help you visualize and bring vivid colors to mind was truly spiritual.  I would recommend Shannon to anyone who is interested in opening their heart and mind through Reiki.

Your coaching video was a wonderful piece to get me back on track and I really loved how you broke my messy feelings into simple categories, and really kept the advice simple and doable.  I felt that you were authentically able to relate to me, and that your advice was doable given you are in the throws of motherhood yourself.  Thank you so much for your coaching gift!

You know what? When I think of you, I feel peaceful. I am amazed how you handle life in such a peaceful and trusting way! You are so very inspiring. I’m trying hard to stay in a peaceful and trusting place in order to see my life unfold in a way that reflects my inner-self. Not that easy though. But on the other hand, life is so beautiful. I guess I need to produce more yummy stuff for me in order to fill in my creative well and nurture my soul. I am glad I have friends like you that I can rely on to keep me on that wonderful and fulfilling path of creativity in a peaceful way!

You are bloody brilliant. I love the way you encourage me to look at the world in such a different way. Thank you for being you!

I first met Shannon when I went on a 4 day wellness retreat that she was conducting.  The moment I met her face to face I knew I was about to embark in an amazing journey with her as my guide.  On one of my days I signed up for a Reiki session with Shannon.  I have never been more relaxed and at peace in my life.  I felt that the weight of all the negative I had been carrying with me had been lifted and that I had been infused with an energy that would allow me to move forward with my life from a better place.  I have continued to reach back for that feeling since returning home and continue to embrace the feeling of confidence, support and positive energy Shannon helped me find within myself.  I cannot wait for the next opportunity to participate in another of Shannon’s events.

Thank you for your wonderful heartfelt and wise insights and sharing. I really love the focus and clarity you gain and the vibrancy, love and enthusiasm you bring to life and share with others. It really comes through so much, Shannon. Lots of love to you and your family and sending full gratitude to you for being such a shining star.


Thank you, Shannon.  Your teaching is nothing short of AMAZING.  I so needed to hear everything that you had to share.  I took pages of colorful notes in my journal to go back to.  I am feeling revved up and empowered, yet still trying to build up my courage as I am in the midst of a very complicated crossroads.

Shannon’s guidance through life coaching absolutely helped me make some tough decisions.  Having a compassionate and keen inclination from an outside voice enabled me to feel at peace with the resolutions I came to.
