Earth & Shore, Shannon Wallace Ross


An avid gardener of philosophy, creativity and the earths beauty way

I love the natural world 

I live on the Pacific Westcoast, here I tend flower,
vegetable, fruit, and herb gardens & love
to cook and make personal products
with the earths ingredients

I did garden design and a herbal medicine internship at
the Punta Mona Centre for Regenerative Design
and Botanical Studies in Costa Rica

I love the creative transformational process

I have held classes & circles with a focus on breath, meditation, yoga, dance,
the chakras, the seasons/the cycles/the elements, art and alchemy 

I have taught workshops on jewellery making, watercolor painting, mandala drawing,
macrame wall hangings & plant holders, weaving & flower crowns

I have written two poetry books and made hundreds of unique pieces of
jewellery & interiors

I have decorated storefronts & yoga studios

I love supporting connection for positive momentum

I have a background hiring, training, and placing young professionals in local
community organizations, managing employment programs for youth at risk,
being a vocational counsellor for the local health authority and the national
mental health association, and as a mentorship interviewer, matchmaker
and advisor for women and girls. I also created the Bloom Series,
an art therapy curriculum for girls and teen's

I love stepping through the archway to the next evolution
