Live Awakened 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 sessions:

  • Life Coaching
  • Reiki Energy Healing
  • 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 intuitive, 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.

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!


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.
