ABOUT

Hi, I'm Shannon

 

I used to be a corporate nerd – a CFO of a $15 billion global enterprise to be precise! It was an incredibly fast-paced, rewarding roller coaster ride. I led an extremely profitable business, was mentored for a decade by one of Australia’s most successful business leaders, and worked at the highest echelons of corporate Australia. Married to the woman of my dreams with two thriving sons, I had the seemingly perfect life.

 

Even so, there would be days when I would lay my head on the pillow at night and just know that I was not at my best. I was f@#king up in my leadership, in my relationships, with my colleagues, my family, my friends and they deserved better, and I was capable of more.

 

A few powerful and challenging life experiences nudged me to a new path and way of being. It was no longer enough to be stuck on the hamster wheel of striving and achievement. I craved a deeper, richer experience.

Rather than have a predetermined life I had mapped out decades earlier happen to me, I made the conscious choice to curate and live my fullest possible human experience! Major life decisions were now answered by asking “What would love do in this moment?”.

A chance trip to Santa Monica in 2016, led me to a Valentine’s Day relationship retreat and my current teacher, John Wineland. After over a dozen trips to North America to learn from John and other great teachers, thousands of hours of personal practice, vision quests and immersions, I now nerd out on meditation, yoga, embodiment and breathwork.

I am a devotee to practices that strengthen the nervous system, and circulating energy through the body, which I believe is the single greatest tool for leading self and others.

My purpose shifted from making money to becoming

“Conscious Devotion to Liberating Hearts”.

Mine and yours.

Together with my wife Rachel, I facilitate a powerful men’s program, Warriors in the Boardroom, and lead couples in relationships to deeper intimacy through immersion in The Art of Deep Loving. I now consider myself a teacher because I am a devoted student.

Above and beyond my purpose I am bringing to the world, I am devoted to working with Rachel to create a deep, intimate connection that is filled with love, joy, and possibility. I am a dad to James and Liam who are the greatest achievements of my life.

Few people can hold the powerful combination of being results focused and relationship focused. Shannon is highly proficient at both. His strategic view coupled with an attention to detail, make him a great asset to any team, project or person.

The Fun Stuff

I’m a husband to my beautiful goddess Rachel, father of two awesome sons, James and Liam and a mad keen explorer and learner.

I have hiked, biked, walked, ran, worked, competed, attended retreats and yoga’d all over the world!

Because I believe life is to be enjoyed and I want the fullest human experience possible!

And I know from experience that success starts with self-care. A commitment to a daily practice of developing strength of mind, body and nervous system through physical, yogic and meditative practice

I’m currently doing my own study and being coached in Embodied Masculine Leadership and Yogic Intimacy by a couple of superstars’ in this field. This work is mind-blowing!

I’m actively involved in Men’s groups and have a tightknit group of guys I know I can call on when needed. There is a certain kind of support that can only be found with other Men that keeps my sword sharp!
