I’m Shannon Kinney-Düh, and I’m so glad you’re here.

I’m a holistic life & spiritual coach, yoga & meditation teacher, Reiki practitioner, artist, podcaster and boy mom who is passionate about inspiring and guiding women as they awaken to the wisdom of their own hearts.

I offer services and products that help you return to your true nature, reconnect you to your calling and cultivate the courage it takes to listen to and follow your heart.  Let’s connect on Facebook and Instagram!

Check out my new Intuitive Awakening Sessions to work one-on-one or join me on my next retreat!



I am also a certified Hatha Yoga Teacher through The Temple of Kriya Yoga in Chicago and have been teaching yoga, meditation, mindfulness, creativity and self-discovery classes for over 15 years.  I’ve studied Creativity Coaching with Eric Maisel and have been a Holistic Life Coach mentoring women online and in-person, both in group coaching and one-on-one for over 10 years. I’ve also worked as a camp counselor in several settings, ran a girls’ empowerment program for ages 9-18 at the YWCA in Boulder, Colorado and worked at a magical art studio for children offered by Hallmark Cards in Kansas City for 10 years.

I feel grateful and honored to get the opportunity to cross paths and work with so many amazing women from around the world.

Self-discovery, self-awakening, self-love and soul-care are my jam.

A Free Spirit Life provides you with a safe, sacred space to celebrate who you are in this moment, and who you are becoming.

Living a free spirited life is about exploring your inner life so that you can thrive in your outer life.  We all have thoughts, behaviors and emotions that keep us feeling blocked and stuck.  When we bring awareness to them, we learn that we are not our thoughts, and that we can break free of our limitations brought on by self-doubt, worry, anxiety, guilt, regret, stress and overwhelm.

Learning more about yourself and seeing your own “blind spots” is a big part of your self-discovery journey.  In my courses, workshops, wellness retreats, one-on-one coaching and energy healing sessions you will gain the freedom that comes when you remember what you already know deep down inside – that you are complete, whole and beautiful, just as you are.

I love creating experiences that inspire women like you to feel more joy, that ignite and nurture your creativity and that cultivate the courage needed to live an authentic, imperfect and more peaceful life.

So, what is my story?

My life used to be filled with self-doubt. I didn’t believe in myself and I let fear keep me from making decisions and taking risks.

Somewhere along the path to adulthood I learned how to stay quiet, watch from a distance and please others. I learned to put my needs last and serve others first.

I didn’t believe I was enough.  I was disconnected from my own worth and my inner creativity.

But things are different now.


I’m on a journey of healing. I’m living a life of contentment, creativity and gratitude. I’m a free spirit.  I stumble and fumble along the way.  Then I get back up and try again.  

My own self-doubt journey has led me to find my inner strength. My inner wisdom. I’m comfortable in my own skin. I’m connected to my authentic self, and I’m able to believe in myself, trust my intuition, and follow my heart.  I can actually call myself an artist and believe that I’m creative – but it certainly took a while to get here.

I’ve learned to face my fears and accept the mess and chaos as a part of life. I’ve learned the ultimate joy that comes from letting go of perfect and how to embrace the beauty of imperfection. The joy of leaving fear of failure behind me and simply beginning…

My healing comes from creativity and the creative process. From time on my yoga mat, stillness and self care. From observation, exploration, and my journal. My healing comes from connecting with my inner creativity and building relationships with the people around me.

I’m living A Free Spirit Life. And I want to share my journey with you.

I created A Free Spirit Life to help you feel happy and become your authentic self in this world…to inspire you to reconnect with your inner creativity, find contentment in the present moment, and achieve your dreams by creating a life you love each and every day.

How will I share my journey of self-discovery with you? Through art, writing, yoga, guided meditation, and community connections. Through inspiration, reflection, and creativity. Through awareness and journaling and mindfulness. Through personal coaching, e-courses, community building. and retreats.

I believe in finding contentment and joy in every season of life.

Right now I’m a mom, and my days are filled with the antics and excitement of three young boys. My husband is the love of my life. My heart is full of the joys and the challenges of my family.

Maybe you are a mom like me. Maybe you face a different kind of chaos. It’s ok. 

You matter. You belong. You are enough. You are welcome here.

A Free Spirit Life has a free, private Facebook group. Visit here to join us.

Thanks for being…you. xo
