A Message From Our Founder
Shannon Tibbetts

After over 25 years working in a creative industry I kept seeing the same theme. Many adults have forgotten what it means to explore, create, dream and just kick over rocks to see what's under them. Most are going through life with what they've been given and not what they've been gifted or trying to “fit in” that gift when time allows. Each one of us is unique with our own beautiful gifts but many are not utilizing them or have not yet discovered them or have just forgotten how to explore. The goal of this non profit is to empower everyone in a way that helps them become more of who they have always been while growing in balanced wellness to go out and live a more connected and joyful life and to spread kindness into the world.

What would you be doing today if you could do anything? I have found that most people can't answer that one question. Our paid workshops, retreats and programming are designed to allow dream chasing, unplugging from the pressure of life, connecting with nature and learning new things (kicking rocks} to see what you find inside. And then to invite you into a community of like minded individuals who support your dreams, encourage your exploration and work together with you in future explorations. We are constantly looking for new ways to grow personally and professionally.

Imagine a world where play is brought back into life and you are empowered to live with an intentional heart!

Wave22: Intentional Heart was formed in April of 2018 with the mission to create immersive experiences, retreats, workshops and programming that enrich and empower your life. After the recent death of my son in July at the age of 22 I began outlining wave22,  a program aimed at young adults to provide them with a “mental and physical playground” during the most critical time of their life.
