TESTIMONIALS

“YOU ARE THAT RARE BLEND OF COUAGE AND COMPASSION , STRENGTH AND SOFTNESS, WARRIOR AND WILLOW.  YOU ARE BOTH A RESPITE AND A COOL SHADE AND A FLOODLIGHT TO THOSE IN YOUR FIELD.  YOU HOLD YOUR OWN GROUND SO THAT OTHERS MAY BE FREE TO OWN THEIRS.  YOU DON'T SPEAK THROUGH ASSUMPTIONS, YOU ARE GENUINE, CLEAR AND UNCOMPROMISING IN YOUR INTEGRITY.  YOU ARE IN INSPIRATION. "

SUNNI CHAPMAN | FOUNDER & ART DIRECTOR AT THE SALTY OLIVE  

"IF YOU ARE REALLY READY TO GET FREE OF THE LIMITING BELIEFS THAT ARE HOLDING YOU BACK, STACI WILL GET YOU RIGHT.  SHE PULLS NO PUNCHES AND WILL NOT CODDLE YOU, BUT SHE *WILL* WORK WITH YOU TO SHOW YOU HOW THE TRUTH - ABOUT YOURSELF, YOR WORK, YOUR LIFE - WIL DELIVER FREEDOM.  YOU NEED HER IN YOUR CORNER."

“[STACI HELPED ME BY]:  "(1) TEACHING ME I CAN'T DO SHIT FROM A PLACE OF ANYTHING OTHER THAN SELF-LOVE; (2) BEING SO GORGEOUSLY HONEST ABOUT ALL THE WAYS YOU STILL LEARNING AND GROWING; (3) WRIING THE MOST INCREDIBLE GROUP WORK PROMPTS AND ATTRACTING THE MOST BRILLIANT PEOPLE TO YOU THAT I CAN BECOME ALONG SIDE. "

KHADIJAH SILVER - EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, RESILIENCY ADVOCACY PROJECT

"I LEARN FROM YOU ON THE DAILY.  PLUS, IN YOUR WORKSHOPS, THE ALCHEMY IS REAL. YOU HAVE AN INSANE GIFT OF CREATING SPACE AND ASKING QUESTIONS.  IT'S DECEPTIVELY SIMPLE UNLESS PERSON RECOGNIZES HOW MUCH COMPLEXITY HAD TO BE DISTILLED IN ORDER TO REACH THE CLARITY NECESSARY TO ACHIEVE THAT SIMPLICITY.  

YO HAVE A PROFOUND ABILITY TO SPEAK INTO BEING  THE WORDS BEGGING TO BE SPOKEN FROM THE COLLECTIVE UNCONSCIOUS.  I'VE SOOOOO OFTEN FELT SOMETHING INTANGIBLE AND THEN THERE IN MY FEED YOU'VE SPELLED IT OUT.  

 

IT'S THAT TRUE ART WHERE THE DIVINE, UNIVERSAL, AND THE DEEPLY PERSONAL INTERSECT - AND YOU MANAGE TO PUT INA WAY DESIGNED TO EMPOWER AND LIBERATE.

 

THAT'S SOME RARE MAGIC.  

AARON MCMANUS - EXECUTIVE RECRUITER

"I JUST COMPLETED THIS COURSE WITH STACI JORDAN SHELTON AND I WANT TO SAYSHE IS THE REAL THING.  A SPEAKER OF TRUTH. NO BULLSHIT. TRUTH FROM A PLACE OF COMPASSION AND WISDOM AND THE CORE OF HUMANITY RATHER THAN THE FEEL-GOOD, MARKET-INSPIRED VAPID PERIPHERY.  IN A WORLD FULL OF POSTURING AND EMPTY BRANDING WE ARE LUCKY TO HAVE PEOLE LIKE STACI AND SHOULD JUMP AT THE CHANCE TO LEARN FROM HER." 

JANELLE HANCHETT, AUTHOR OF "IM JUST HAPPY TO BE HERE",

A MEMOIR OF RENEGADE MOTHERING

"YOU WERE A MAJOR MIDWIFE TO ME AS I BIRTHED THROUGH THE ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT OF MY OWN IDENTITY AND HELPED ME SO MUCH TO RECOGNIZE MY OWN VEILED CORNERS OF UNSEEING MY OWN CONDITIONING OF WHITENESS AS A MULTI-RACIAL WOMAN. YOU HAVE BEEN GENEROUS AND ALSO FIERCE. ALSO, YOU HAVE A GIFT TO MAKE SUCH PENETRATING ANALYSIS."

MARGO STEBBING, POET & ESSAY WRITER

"YOU HELP ME EXAMINE UNCOMFORTABLE TRUTHS IN A FIRM, YET LOVING WAY, TAKE A GOOD HARD SOUL-SEARCHING LOOK AT HOW I SHOW UP IN THE WORLD, AND CHIP AWAY AT THE BULLSHIT STORIES WE'RE ALL TAUGHT TO BELIEVE.  STACI, YOU MAKE US ALL BETTER PEOPLE."

BETH STROPKI KNORR, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR,

SUMMIT FOOD COALITION

"THE SYDNEY YOU SEE HERE TODAY HAS BEEN MONUMENTALLY SHIFTED AND REDIRECTED THANKS TO YOU.  UNRAVELING SAVED MY LIFE AND HELPED ME UNDERSTAND MY PROCESS. YOU ARE ONE OF THE BRIGHTEST LIGHTS I'VE EVER HAD THE PLEASURE OF BEING IN COMMUNITY WITH AND HONESTLY, THERE ARE DAYS WHEN I ASK MYSELF 'WHAT WOULD STACI DO?' THAT QUESTION HELPS ME MOVE THROUGH THE HARD SHIT WITH INTEGRITY. AND THAT, ULTIMATELY, IS ALL I CAN ASK OF MYSELF."
