Colleen McCann, fashion stylist turned energy practitioner, has spent this lifetime appreciating all things beautiful. From the runways of Paris to the crystal caves of South America, Colleen has always been acutely aware of the power and strength that lies in the exquisite. With a distinguished palette and an intuitive eye for trends, it is no wonder her journey began in the world of fashion. Her style-centric pursuits for the last 15 years have allowed her to wear many hats including: designer, stylist, brand consultant and always a serial entrepreneur (the first being a friendship bracelet company started at age 8).
THE SKINNY ON HER STORY
McCann’s intense travel schedule often yielded a nomadic way of life and it was on these very journeys that she began to merge her two great loves: fashion and mysticism. Colleen’s wanderlust nature has always led her to connect with diverse styles of people and their deeply rooted spiritual traditions and rituals. Though she cannot truly recall a moment of her life where she was not connected to the spirit world in some form, her true gifts emerged and blossomed after she started hearing voices, also known as Clairaudience, in a Brooklyn bodega. Yes, you heard that correctly. Eek! What did she do? She sought an appointment with a reputable Manhattan psychic who could perhaps explain why she was “crazy”. The psychic gently broke the mystical bomb to her that she too was psychic. The voices were in fact her Spirit Guides saying hello. Gulp…now what?
TRAIN THE TRAINER
Colleen asked the universe for a teacher to help sort all this mystical stuff out as she was super overwhelmed, confused & scared. What next? She jumped heels first into the crystal-laden rabbit hole with three years of private mentorship with an Intuitive Healer. Her journey then led her to train at The Four Winds Society in Peruvian Shamanic Studies where she holds the esteemed title of Shamanic Energy Medicine Practitioner with accreditation as Healer Light Body. PS. Colleen really got bit by the Shaman bug so she also studied Nordic and Mexican Shamanism too. The cherry on top was becoming a Reiki Master. And, let’s not forget the sparkle because that’s where it all began! Colleen has spent a decade studying with a Buddhist Feng Shui Master to learn Crystal Healing and Space Clearing. It was during these pivotal moments in her metaphysical training, she realized she could use her intuition to help others in a myriad of profound ways.
THE AHA MOMENT
Upon becoming more spiritually attuned, Colleen began to incorporate her healing knowledge with everyone in her space; from backstage models to strangers in an airport, it seemed as though she had become a magnet for people to seek counsel from. Colleen's link between the spiritual and physical world has allowed her to understand the needs of others, whether being the right silhouette for a body type or a proverbial torn seam in an energetic body. There is power in beauty only when beauty exudes honesty, strength, compassion and confidence. It was this very notion that catapulted McCann into merging her two passions into one unique vision…STYLE RITUALS WAS BORN!
