Nurture Your Heart & Soul
Imagine stepping out of your everyday life to reconnect to peace, joy and relaxation.
No pressure, no stress, no responsibilities and no distractions. Just a small group of beautiful, like-minded women and the time and space to reconnect to your true self.
Imagine a beautiful location where you can relax and renew your spirit.
A place where every detail is in place and you don’t have to worry or work. Somewhere for you to just BE…and to let your mind quiet, your heart open and your body relax. A place where you can explore your creativity. A place where you can practice meditation, enjoy nature and eat delicious food. A place where you can connect with amazing people.
A place that is warm, supportive and safe where you can be exactly who you are.
This is my dream for you.
This is why I am hosting these relaxing retreats at the beautiful Timber Creek House in Drexel, Missouri. I’ve hosted many retreats here in the past, and I promise that you will absolutely love it here! It is a house filled with love and for the people who’ve come on retreat here, it has been a life-changing, magical experience.

“I had the best time on this retreat! I am so happy I joined all of you these last 4 days. Not only was the retreat house, Tom, Beth and Patty absolutely over the top amazing, but every single one of the women you have brought together were so thoughtful, inspiring, warm and fun! So many more things I could go on and on about the women that joined this weekend.
You are exactly as I imagined you to be and so, so, so much more. I can’t even begin to explain what this weekend has been for me and what I have taken away from it. I am still processing it all, but I can tell you that it was one of the best, if not the best, experiences I have ever given myself. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I left a piece of myself at the retreat house and with all of you.”
“I loved going on Retreat with Shannon so very much! It was the ultimate form of self-care for me. With more structured activities in the mornings — like yoga sessions and walks in the woods — and less structured, free time in the afternoons — which amounted to time for thinking, napping, journaling, and massage for me — the days were well-organized and flowed nicely for the ultimate in a relaxing and rejuvenating experience for my heart and soul. And meal times were spent chatting with new friends, eating delicious foods, in a relaxed, cozy setting. The meditations before each meal only added to the special character of both the setting and the Retreat. Timber Creek Retreat House is beautiful, each bedroom with its own spacious bathroom, and each outfitted with a king size bed fitted with the most comfortable sheets you can imagine on which to sleep.
Shannon is as beautiful, inside and out, in person, as she is online, and makes you feel welcome and included throughout the Retreat experience, as do all the women with whom you Retreat. Because the Retreat is limited in size, these women become your friends.
I highly recommend going on any Retreat with Shannon! In fact, I am already signed-up to attend another Retreat with Shannon next year because my first experience was so positive.”
“This retreat was the best thing I have ever done for myself. It’s the “thing” I didn’t know I needed. Now, it’s the “thing” that keeps me going. That light at the end of the tunnel. I feel refreshed and renewed after retreat and Shannon is the absolute best!”
Shannon’s retreat was amazing and I’m taking away lessons that I will use every day in my life. The silent time meditating calmed my spirit and my soul. The friendships I made will never be forgotten. The activities with the group were inspiring. I also had time to read, journal, and get to know myself better. I am so happy that I made the decision to go. I will definitely do this again and tell others about it.
“Retreat – the word alone conjures up images and emotions of renewing, relaxing and becoming… From the decision to make retreating a priority to the preparation and time spent traveling to the actual retreat location, I experience and expectancy, excitement and some trepidation of what the experience will bring.
Personally, I have immersed myself into retreats twice in the past year. Letting go and transformation begins for me as I leave my daily environment and enjoy the solitude of driving to the retreat destination. The sensation of, “melting” I feel in the first 24 hours of a retreat is both amazing and mysterious. This is when I fully surrender to the community of women gathered for a similar, yet unique experience and begin to find my true self again.
My retreats with Shannon as the facilitator have been a blend of self exploration through art, yoga, group meetings, deep meditations and ample time allotted for solitude and reflection in a natural, peaceful setting removed from daily routines, busyness and expectations. These periods of time have allowed deep spiritual and personal growth which have rippled through my life long after leaving retreats. There are no words to truly express how grateful I am to be a part of this growing circle of women.”
