Global meditation instructor, inspirational writer, spiritual teacher, healing guide, sensual movement mama, music lover, BEING WOMAN philosopher.
Schan Robinson began her practice of meditation in early 2009 as a way to become more deeply connected to Divine Source. It was during this time in her life where she felt a heaviness of religion and knew that there was something lighter, loving, and more liberating. What she discovered was that meditation moved her to become more in tune with her Higher Self and to be in alignment with spirituality as well as the Source of All Creation Itself. Through mindfulness and self-reflection, Schan was able to face and release some of her deepest fears, turn inward to self-love and awaken to her spiritual power.
This path led her on an even more transforming journey of self-awareness, truth-speaking, and soul-awakening. She became a part of the Inner Visions Institute for Spiritual Development family, and personally taught, guided, and certified by Dr. Iyanla Vanzant, as a Spiritual Life Coach. It was there that Schan was introduced to the indigenous wisdom of elders and ancestors, along with holistic ways of being on a much deeper and sacred level. Through her own inner work and healing process, Schan integrated the same spiritual laws, principles, and practices that she teaches today.
With a BS degree in Business Administration from Augusta University, Schan is the owner of Embrace Meditation™, an online sacred space and traveling studio that teaches mindfulness and meditation through breathwork, creative visualization, and journaling. Schan is also creator of Art of BEING WOMAN™, a life philosophy that explores and celebrates every area of femininity through self-awareness, inner child work, breathing techniques, sensual movement, chakra energy healing, sound therapy (chanting & music), and stillness, in a gentle way to encourage women to live a liberated life with pleasure, peace, joy, and grace.
Schan is passionate about sharing spiritual principles and various forms of meditation while teaching others how to integrate them into life experiences that support us in creating calm, connection, and staying grounded. Schan is also a writer who uses her love of words and meditation into numerous inspirational projects. Her latest is “BEING WOMAN ~ A Sacred Journey of Reconnecting to the Divine Truth of Who You Are!”, a book detailing her personal spiritual journey infusing prayer, meditation, energy healing, and breathing techniques, along with other teachings she holds near and dear to her heart, throughout the pages.
Throughout the year, Schan conducts BEING WOMAN Healing Sacred Circles, Group Meditation, along with facilitating yearly Art of BEING WOMAN, and meditation focused retreats.
So How Did All This Come About?
As far back as I can remember, writing and bold imagination has always been my joy. The earliest writings I have is a poem I wrote when I was six years old. My first “writing business” came in 2000 when I was in my early 20s. I was writing poetry at my desk and another young lady saw it and encouraged me to turn my words into greeting cards and calendars. I had no idea what business was, however, I knew writing and I knew how to inspire in way that was healing, encouraging, and motivating. Fast forward to 2011. After posting inspirational messages on Facebook, friends on my timeline kept asking me “when was the book coming out?’ Well, writing an inspirational book wasn’t on my mind and I didn’t even know where to start. So, I started documenting my Facebook posts into a Word document and a friend of mine offered to create a book cover and do the typesetting. Just that simple, my first book was born! It was devotional called, Be Beautifully Inspired: A 90 Day Guide of Poems, Prayers, Articles, and Affirmations to Inspire the Spirit. Just like the greeting cards and calendars 11 years prior, people were interested in buying the book. This is when I truly began to embrace my gift. Before then, I just knew I loved words. Now I knew that my words had the power to give life.
It would be a few years later when I discovered my passion for life coaching. I had started having mini-workshops for women and girls who were interested in creative writing, journaling and writing their life stories. Oftentimes writing sessions turned into “life sessions.” Girls felt safe in my presence to share their challenges and issues while women asked for counsel and guidance. I knew that there was something within me that attracted these “sessions.” So, the curious, intuitively seeking side of me went on a quest for self-awareness. That search led me to Inner Visions Institute for Spiritual Development. It was there that I learned how to examine my own life, my own thinking, and my own ways of being. I discovered myself in ways that I could not even imagine before. It was on this personal journey of self-discovery that I cultivated my gift of creating safe spaces, and I deepened this gift through meditation and writing. At my completion ceremony, I was given the name, Ayodele, which means “Joy has come home.” I remember my joy and I ain’t afraid to share it!
I know how to ask the deeper questions with love, and I know how to spark the writer inside. Through my natural gifts, experience, and training, I effectively merged the healing art of writing and the transformative design of life coaching into a uniquely powerful journey that you get to choose from. That just makes me so excited that I’m smiling from ear to ear typing it!
My vision is to create a Universal SACRED SPACE where men, women, children, and families can come experience transforming books and workshops, along with the healing arts of writing, mindfulness, meditation, retreating, and just disconnecting from the outside world to reconnect with themselves, relax, recharge, and just be! The first phase of this has begun with the Art of BEING WOMAN.
So, in a nutshell, this is me and a little bit about how I got started in this wonderful world of writing and coaching. Be sure to follow me on Facebook or sign up on the home page to get tools to start living your most divine life delivered right to your mailbox!
