Shanon Lyn Harwood is the author of the multimedia book, It Depends on Who’s Looking.  Within a year of that writing, she created the online, self-help program of the same name. 

Shanon was tutored for 15 years by Spiritual Elder Josephine Crowshoe of the Piikani Nation who named her ‘Iniskimaaki - Buffalo Rock Woman’.  Shanon then graduated from Dr. Alberto Villoldo’s Four Winds Society Healing the Light Body School and specialized in Advanced Soul Retrieval as well as Working With the Sacred. 


Together with her partner, Marv Harwood, Shanon founded The Kimmapii School of Shamanism, where she has been a director and instructor for more than 30 years. (


Shanon has been invited to lecture on the works of Edgar Cayce and has instructed regularly on the subjects of tarot, astrology and Archetypes. In more recent years, she trained with Psychologist, Jungian Analyst, Dr. Carl Greer.



Shanon entered the world of shamanism as a teenager, intensely interested in tarot and astrology.  This interest deepened when, as a young woman, she moved to Dubai UAE - one of the worlds greatest religious melting pots.  Here she was able to study numerous different religions and soon concluded that although terminology and ceremony may differ somewhat, each faith was saying essentially the same thing. 


At university, Religious Studies drew yet another parallel - this time to the ancient gods and goddesses from around the world.  This (combined with her hands on experience with religions in Dubai and her now in depth knowledge of tarot and astrology), inspired her to devote eight years of her life to writing “It Depends on Who’s Looking - The Archetype Project”.  This project is a study of the universality of the Archetypal Energies referred to in religion, folklore and mythology.


Shanon is a shamanic practitioner, instructor and healer who has devoted the last 32 years of her life to shamanic teaching, writing and practice.
