Awakening Through Love

The “HOW” of Not Taking Anything Personally! (Agreement Two)

Frustrated in a relationship with someone close to you?

Still experiencing anxiety, overwhelm or loneliness, despite your long spiritual journey?

Fearful that you’re saying or doing the wrong thing, always feeling like you’re on the outside?

And despite your best intentions and a sincere wish to be of service, do you find yourself closing your heart to your spouse, family members, work colleagues or others?

You want to scream, walk out, huddle in the corner when you take things personally and old patterns DO trigger you, despite all your inner work.

If you are just SO ready for some RADICAL RELATIONSHIP RELIEF ... Then I have really HAPPY NEWS:

Start your path to freedom, forgiveness, and fun!


“Shawn, this is amazing. You’re a gift. You are really good at what you do. You are so perceptive. I can’t even imagine anyone being as helpful as you’ve been. I love that all my family relationships are at peace as I'm headed into the holidays.”

—Carol Kerr, Unity Member, December 2017

With this MAJOR SHIFT in Paradigm, ‘Problems’ Look and Feel Radically Different. Suddenly relationships feel…

  • Hopeful
  • Solvable
  • Friendlier
  • and MUCH More Fun
man and woman unity

Understanding what I call “The Reliable Symmetry of Happiness” was–for me–the beginning of the end of fear, anger, sadness, and the hell of regret. The reason I call this a Paradigm Shift is because this ‘happy symmetry’ changed my entire relationship to life–in a very short time–and does the same for those in my Groups and Individual work.


Results you Can Expect from this Ground-Breaking Program (even thought it is just an introduction!):

1. Major Shifts in Your Relationship to Relationships and to LIFE itself:

  • Stop Waiting for your situation to change
  • Put Happiness back in your Court
  • Notice a refreshing compassion for yourself and others
  • Act in loving new ways to old familiar triggers
  • Move from Reliable Anger, Anxiety, Heaviness to Reliable Clarity, Joy, Lightness (and FUN)!
  • BE the Relationship of Your Dreams

2. Your own discovery (don’t just believe me!) that:

  • Painful issues are happening FOR you, not just TO you,
  • You don’t need the “terrible awful THEM” to change for you to be happy,
  • You no longer feel clueless about how to handle situations you used to dread.
  • Your shift from upset into peace, curiosity, fearlessness can be instantaneous.

3. A Dependable Peace and Delicious Connection via The 6 Keys:

  • Harvest Hidden Riches from Your Judgments, Annoyances, & Fear
  • Efficiently Shift Regret, Indecision, Needs, & Shoulds to their Happy Flip Side
  • Use Defensiveness, Offensiveness, and Vulnerability as Personalized Teachers of Inner Peace
  • Eradicate fear of intimidation, retaliation,’ seeing the other (and Yourself) clearly

There is deep integrity, Shawn, in what you share ... It's palpable and permeates your words and actions. Your willingness to be both visible and vulnerable is a continual testimony of your dedication to 'walk your talk.' I also really appreciate your sense of humor that reads as kindness ... such a kind heart ❤ you have. So beautiful is The Work that you share. Thanks so much ... I value your stand and your commitment to truth, beauty and true care for us all ... it's a treasure.

I'm in. I've drunk the Reliable Symmetry of Happiness kool aid. I want to immerse myself in it, become a skilled practitioner of it in my own mind and life, and pass it on to everyone I reach through Bright Line Eating to address the monkey mind that erupts when the crutch of food is no longer a go-to option.

This is soooo awesome! I feel really great right now! Thank you so much for facilitating my paradigm shift!
Author, Coach, and Blog Writer; California
Thank you for doing this group. I think The Work is awesome and its clear that you are masterful with The Work from all the feedback I’ve heard from multiple people now and I think it could benefit everyone, and I don’t say that about many things. I think that The Work is… well it’s phenomenal; it’s absolutely transformative. It doesn’t matter how enlightened you already are, you can go further with The Work. It can produce profound breakthroughs that you might not find any other way. It gets at stuff that we can very effectively avoid in the rest of our lives. The stuff we are conveniently avoiding--The Work will get at it. So Yeah, I highly recommend this. (Recommending another group—not THIS exact one).

It is said that what we all want above all things are Love and Freedom. I advocate highly for Shawn’s ability to help guide you HOME to both! Her Commitment, Love and Skill, her Patience and Guidance, and especially her Courage are all for YOU and in service to YOUR HEALING. I love her and her work! If you’re ready to roll up your sleeves, and get to it, this is the place and Shawn is the person! I hope to see you at her next event!
