We had the good fortune of connecting with Shannon Weiss- Kahn and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Shannon, can you talk to us a bit about the social impact of your business?
My business- I really like to think of it as my path to enlightenment and along the way I get the honor of helping other women and their families integrate into their new lives as a family. I love gifting mamas; Ayurveda, Reiki, massage and nourishing food! I want to leave a legacy for my children to be proud of.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I chose this drop down of artist/creative because I truly believe those that are birth keepers and postpartum caregivers are some of the most creative and inspiring people I have ever met. My journey to becoming a doula is one that has been challenging; being a twin mom, working full time as a teacher and building my brand has been HARD but I am learning to surrender to the fear and let the doors of opportunity present themselves and I am so excited to see what comes next. I am passionate about all things Ayurveda, yoga, postpartum and reiki. My story is one that I am still in the process of writing and truly processing but I do believe we all have a story and a voice that can change the world!
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Hi! Homebody here! BUT let’s live in a fantasy for a moment… hmmm… I would take my best friend to small businesses- Places where real people are working, building their brand and showing their art and love for the world to see. Stanley marketplace is a great starting point of small businesses all in one space but I would also take her to bookstores, tea houses, and any metaphysical store we can find (that’s our thing). That was fun, maybe I’ll get out more 😉 Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My children are my biggest shout out! They inspire me every day. I also want to shout out Center for Sacred Window Studies for challenging me and opening me up to what my true calling is. Also, my family has been a huge support system!
