Happy Mother's Day to all of the women who inspire, lead, and empower our young people.
This has a been a year where you have had to fight even harder for our families as we faced seemingly unending uncertainty and challenge.
On the other side, I will be waiting for you with a mimosa in hand (or wine, champagne, beer, tequila) ready to take a well deserved time out. xoxo

We will explore balanced eating, intuitive eating, exercise for health of mind and body, and of course confront societal standards of beauty.

I am excited to be working on some incredible projects with members of the Halton Hills community.

There is much excitement even with the current state of the world. There is positivity and hope for the future.

I am pleased to be able to continue to provide programming to the youth and families of Halton Hills during this difficult time. Several youth groups, sports teams, and corporations and have reached out to find support for their valued members during this time. I am pleased to be offering stress workshops to our Amica family and the members of Strictly Dance during this second wave of the pandemic.

I am here for you and our young people. Even within my new role, I remain present and available.

Camp Mi-A-Kon-Da - A summer camp for girls

If you are looking for an immersive camp program for your young lady, this is the girls-only camp my family owns and directs in Parry Sound.

Mi-a-kon-da has been in operation since 1955. My family has been involved in this camp for decades and now my own two daughters attend. Mira has been going for 8 years and this will be Everly's first year.

If you want a truly unique chance for your daughter to connect with other girls without the pressure of school, social media (no cellphones allowed!), and other influences....this is the place.

On a small island in Lake Wah-Wash-Kesh, it's a private birch oasis for your girls to learn to live in nature and with each other for 2-week or 4-week sessions.

My brother co-directs the program with Kaitlyn and my parents own and operate camp day-to-day.

https://miakonda.com/

Located on a private island in the heart of the Canadian Shield, Camp Mi-A-Kon-Da provides an unforgettable summer camp experience for girls ages 7 to 16.

Hello M Power families.

I trust that you are all keeping well and coping through this challenging time as much as you can. Please continue to support one another, through the good day and the not-so-good days. We will come out the other side of this better than ever!

I just wanted to announce that as of January 1, 2021, M Power will be moving south of the border. I have taken a new position that is taking me to Las Vegas. I've been slowly transitioning since September and soon it'll be time for me to focus on my new venture. It is time that I practice what I preach and follow my dreams, even if that means uprooting myself, putting myself out there, feeling uncomfortable, and taking healthy risks. It means I'm growing and developing as a person, mother, wife, and entrepreneur. I am hoping to eventually provide girls in the Las Vegas area with some incredible opportunities to be the best versions of themselves they can be.

I am so very thankful for this community and all of the incredible families that I have met and worked with over the past 2 1/2 years. It has been an incredible ride. I am fortunate to live in a place where there are some huge hearts and the strong desire for self-improvement.

Despite the distance, I'm always here for my M Power families. If there is a question you want answered, some advice you seek.....you can find me at [email protected].

All my love and gratitude,
Shannon

Summer is coming to an end and a new phase of learning is beginning.

This summer has been unusual to say the least but I have loved seeing all the family time, outdoorsy adventures, and growing that happened.

Starting this week we are starting our 10-Week Empowering against Exploitation program via Zoom for our older girls. We are working with the Elizabeth Fry Society to make this a valuable program for young women. The program is free and runs Wednesdays 7pm from September 9th until November 18th.

Enjoy your Sunday! Today is a beautiful day and one where we should be grateful for all of the things we have been given. As the negatives from the rest of the world swirls around us, we need to pause and be thankful. What are you thankful for today?

For me, I am thankful for the natural world. Nature is healing.

We can always find the time for a break, a special moment, or a nap with a little spontaneity and creativity. It takes making your wellness and health a priority. Mindsets can change to allow this to happen more easily and with less guilt. However, it takes time and patience. Make one small change at a time...
