In 2008, Shannon Kring left behind her career as the executive producer and co-star of her own Emmy® Award-winning reality-cooking series; author of four award-winning nonfiction books; and owner of an acclaimed culinary brand consisting of restaurants, culinary schools, a restaurant consultancy, international culinary tours, branded merchandise, endorsement contracts, and a QVC deal. She moved to a remote Maya Ch'orti' village on the Honduras-Guatemala border, bringing with her just one suitcase and three goals for inner achievement: to heal her heart, to reconnect with her spirituality, and to discover her higher purpose. She did just that.
Today, Shannon is grateful for having lived and worked alongside indigenous elders, spiritual luminaries, world leaders, and other awe-inspiring individuals in more than 50 countries. Dedicated to inspiring others to lead a more soulful existence, she is a frequent keynote speaker at events throughout North and Central America, Europe, and Asia, and has been featured on NPR, PBS, CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX, Lifetime, and in more than 150 leading publications including The Wall Street Journal, SmartMoney Magazine, TV Guide, Redbook, Los Angeles Times, and the New York Post.
Shannon recently wrote, directed, and produced her first documentary film, 2012: The Beginning. It aired on more than a dozen top television networks worldwide and was the most-watched film at MIPDoc 2012 Cannes.
She resides in Los Angeles, where she is in pre-production on a new television series, is producing a series of documentary shorts chronicling the lives and thoughts of wisdom keepers around the world, and is completing her first novel.
