My name is Shanell Vaughn. My education in the healing and energy arts started when I was 8 years old and discovered a passion for martial arts. It was through this intense training that I first came to experience the connection between mind, body and spirit. In 2004, I began to pursue studies in the field of holistic health and attended a 13-month facilitator training programme in Shamanic Breathwork™ at the Venus Rising Institute in Asheville, North Carolina.
In 2007, I went on to complete a Master’s Degree in Transpersonal Psychology from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology in California. During this time I also discovered a love for the ancient wisdom teachings of Yoga, and in 2010 I became a certified Sivananda Hatha Yoga instructor. I have since which completed the 500-hr Advanced Training to receive the designation "Master of Yoga". I was initiated into the Sivananda lineage with the spiritual name "Shanti Devi" meaning "Peaceful Goddess". In 2013, I obtained my Diploma in Professional Hypnotherapy & Hypnosis in the United Kingdom at the Parr Practitioner Academy. Following this in 2014, I studied Metaphysical Science at Delphi University in Georgia, USA.
My healing arts education has been a beautiful weaving of modalities such as Reiki, Metatronic Healing, Quantum Healing and Hypnotherapy Technique (QHHT), Past Life Regression Therapy, and more. I have studied with teachers in the USA, England, India and Bermuda.
I have been dedicated to these two complementary paths - healing arts and yoga - for the past 17 years. It is my sincere desire to help others to come into the realisation of their true nature, as whole, healthy and divine beings, and to be of service in the best way that I can.
