When Shawna Ristic was 19, she had a catastrophic car accident that changed the course of her life. For several weeks, she was in a coma, and had a near-death experience (NDE). During her NDE, she awakened to the love that is the fabric of everything and the essence of each of us. She became aware that her purpose is to help people heal and move closer to their essence. Over the years, her gift for healing has evolved in ways that amaze and transform her and her clients as she continues to tap the insights and the guidance first encountered during her NDE. She is Nationally Certified in Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork since 1997. She also received a B.A. in French from the University of Kansas and an M.A. in communications from l'Université Paul Valéry, Montpellier III, France.
