The People Shine Project is a SW Florida
community service program that promotes and facilitates integrative recovery and
holistic self care practices through affordable
classes, groups and workshops, as well as private consultations. But
it's actually even more than that. The People Shine Project is a
movement, which is starting to take hold at the grassroots level of
community. It is the movement toward the use of transformational
and holistic methods, coupled with more personal responsibility for self
care. It is
our vision to inspire and educate people to take a more balanced and
approach to self care, wellness and personal growth. As
advocates for integrative medicine, we have formed a
unique community alliance which allows us to bring over 50+ classes per
month (and growing) together under one roof to support this vision.
We are extremely fortunate to have gathered a group of respected professionals, who have come together in community, to serve each other and the public through the People Shine Project. Our teachers and guides run the gamut from life coaches, wellness coaches, ministers, spiritual teachers, meditation masters, to shamanic practitioners, energy medicine practitioners (including Reiki, Theta, Feng Shui, sound and crystal healing), massage therapists, ceremonialists, hypnotherapists, plus artists, musicians, yoga and Tai Chi instructors, as well as business and career consultants and marketing experts.
Most of the classes and sessions we offer are facilitated on a volunteer basis, by these professionals who are dedicated to giving back to the community through their own passion for being of service to others and to transform through the power of "tribal community". As a result of their generosity and commitment to the community, we are granted the opportunity to make available to the public through the alliance of the People Shine Project an extensive variety of these very special services and classes at extremely affordable rates in a centralized location. Currently we have over 20 providers and guides and we have been successfully serving SW Florida since 2008.
The People Shine Project allows other healthcare professionals, as well as the general public to not only engage in and learn more about integrative medicine best practices in a safe and supportive environment, but actually provides the means under one roof for people to become exposed to and experience a variety of modalities and methods that are often available only through high-end wellness centers, posh recovery retreats and exclusive spas. It is our purpose to make these types of leading-edge services ACCESSIBLE AND AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE. As people begin to see profound physical, mental, emotional and spiritual transformation, these practices are destined to become a permanent part of a healthy menu of good self care.
PEOPLE SHINE PHILOSOPHY
Our philosophy of healing is focused mainly upon the empowerment of the individual and the re-establishment of right relationship to everything, because everything is connected. We believe that any recovery work, whether it be through addiction, depression, cancer, personal crisis or simply spiritual exploration, is a recovery of the true self and a restoration of the whole person. Recovery of the self is a life-long process rooted in good self-care, which includes reverence and respect for the whole self: body, mind and spirit, as well as the environment in which we live. We also believe this must be accomplished at the level of community and cannot be successful in isolation.
Some of our offerings include Guided Meditations, Meditation Workshops, Mindfulness and Consciousness Raising Classes, Reiki Classes/Sessions, Breathwork, Shadow Work, Yoga, Tai chi (coming soon), Healing Circles & Pure Light Blessings (Diksha), Addiction Alchemy™ Recovery Medicine Wheel, Transformational Journeys, Women's Empowerment Groups, Goddess Circles, Journaling Classes, Drumming, Ecstatic Dance, Creativity & Art Workshops (Jewelry making, Collage/Mixed Media), Feng Shui Classes, Crystal Classes, Kabbalah Study Groups, Theta Healing, Crystal Bowl Meditations, Nutritional Education, Aromatherapy, Spiritual & Intuitive Development, Men's Groups, Abundance Workshops, Mastermind Groups and Professional Development workshops, Spiritual Mentoring, as well as Mini-Retreats, Social gatherings and non-denominational Sunday Services.

In addition to our weekly, bi-weekly and monthly classes, we also offer a variety of unique and dynamic one time special events, workshops and other activities each month. Our Guides are also available for private consultations and sessions, as well, when one on one attention is required. All of our services are open to the public and usually do not require an RSVP. We have an open door policy and invite everyone to "come as you are".
