Dr. Michell Shine explains her journey to discover Mana Gardening: Aloha, I grew up on the east coast with hard-working, loving, dedicated parents, a live-in grandma, and a little sister, and have been a science geek since I was 7. In 1996, while living amongst the sheer majesty of the mountains in Colorado, I decided I wanted to practice spirituality AND science. I became a scientist on a spiritual path studying and practicing both (seemingly separate) worlds. While suffering through the ending of a marriage, I took a serious hit in the self-esteem department and turned into a broken-hearted doormat.
Mana Gardening thankfully came to me during this time and helped me know exactly what I wanted and gave me the motivation to take the actions necessary toward my life desires. And I learned to access my own inner guidance for the first time ever! With Mana Gardening, my co-author Keti Kamalani and I found a way to relax, leverage the active thinking mind, and know the real, inner me! I learned ways to love myself when the one I was in love with was no longer in love with me.
Mana Gardening gave me a way to feel the presence of a higher power, heightening my faith and spirituality and giving me the tools to become whole, happy, and complete again. This was deeply beneficial and profoundly fulfilling! My mana garden feels absolutely sacred to me and it continues to give me strength and love, empowering me to know myself and make choices that are in the highest regard to all others, including myself.
Holding a Ph.D. in Biomedical Science from the Medical University of South Carolina, I have published peer-reviewed articles in the fields of microbiology, cell signaling, tissue engineering, stem cell therapy, and complementary and alternative medicine. I have also co-authored and served as Co-Investigator on several multi-million dollar grants leading scientific and engineering teams towards research goals. My intention is to scientifically study the effects of Mana Gardening and share my experiences with you to help you along your journey. Learn more: ManaGardening.com.
