There is only one word to describe Shannon McGough’s life, and that word is eclectic. Before founding AMETHYST BLISS she enjoyed an international career as a professional dancer and actress based in New York City. Dancing naturally flowed to teacher certification by Aadil Palkhivala in Alignment Based Yoga, and Jennifer Reis for Yoga Nidra. Currently, she's in teacher training with Margarida Tree for Ashtanga Therapy Certification. She practices Raindrop Essential Oil Massage and is a distributor for Young Living Essential Oils. Shannon does marketing and web and social design for HighChi Energy Jewelry. She is also a Sound Therapist utilizing software and scalar technology developed by Quantum Sound Therapy and is a distributor for their technology.
Shannon’s holistic approach to life integrates business as well as the arts. In her multi-faceted career she served as Conference Event Coordinator for the Omega Institute, Office Manager for Retail Insights, (a consulting firm to the Natural Products Industry,) Project Supervisor for American Photography and Illustration, the “bible” of large format Art Source books in New York City, and was an Assistant to a Literary Agent.
In her free time, Shannon meditates, knits, practices yoga, Qi Gong, and Tai Chi, while maintaining a long and happy marriage to musician / composer / author Alki Steriopoulos.
Shannon is an artist. Her award-winning paintings hang in private collections around the world. Her hugely successful 365 Days of OM paintings are intention-based unique works of art taking a year to create; each imbued with a personalized dedicated daily prayer symbol painted into it.
And now, Shannon brings all this life experience, spiritual questing, and joy to her new endeavor, AMETHYST BLISS. Each and every bracelet is made of the finest amethyst available, offset with a single garnet. As she does in every aspect of her life, Shannon brings integrity, honesty, and spirituality to every piece.
