AZIANDS - Shawna Ristic: A Journey to Oneness
Shawna Ristic is an intuitive healer and body therapist who was called to healing others after a near death experience (NDE) following an accident at the age of 19. Shawna will share her powerful and motivating NDE story and the subsequent transformative process that has informed the last two decades of her life. She shares intimate details of her journey to maintain her awakened understanding of the world as love, and love as vibration. During her coma she spent time with a group of light beings that she calls the Council. She will talk about her ongoing relationship with them and their contribution to her work in leading others to wholeness. To finish the talk, Shawna will answer questions and share the Councils message of unity and oneness. Highly intuitive as a child, Shawna Ristic grew up in a world that discredited her paranormal experiences and caused her to lose her deep connection and ability to trust her intuition. Her response was to become afraid of what came naturally to her and shut down her ability to see, hear and feel beyond physical reality. A catastrophic car accident at the age of 19 changed the course of her life. While in a coma for several weeks, Shawna had a near-death experience (NDE) during which she was introduced to the Council, a group of light beings from the other side, who were to journey with her and guide her from that point forward. After her miraculous healing, it was as though Shawna’s sixth sense, the intuitive felt sense, had been blasted back open. Her new understanding of the world would facilitate her work from this point forward revealing that her purpose was to help others heal and find their way home. The following two decades were a time of deep integration of the mystical information she had received. Guided towards massage as her chosen modality for healing, Shawna pursued certifications in a variety of hands on healing including structural massage, neural-mobilization, craniosacral therapy and lymphatic drainage. She also holds a B.A. in French from the University of Kansas and an M.A. in Communications from l'Université Paul Valéry, Montpellier III, France. After 20 years of honing her healing skills, Shawna is now ready to openly speak about and share her experiences with those who are interested in NDE and who might want to further develop their own intuitive skills. Shawna’s offerings currently include Individual Private Sessions in Santa Cruz and Los Gatos, California. Vibrational Healing sessions are offered worldwide through Skype, FaceTime, Zoom and phone. At the request of her clients, she has created and offers her exclusive workshop series Becoming Your Intuitive Self to help others develop personal intuition through the use of vibrational awareness as a powerful tool to navigate their world.
