Hi lovely! So nice to have you here, welcome to my home on the web 🙂

I’m Shannon Cooper, an author, artist and educator living in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

What lights me up is sharing an understanding of the principles to reawaken love for ourselves, others and our beautiful planet.

The rest of the time you can find me reading in a hammock, hiking to waterfalls, sitting by a fire, drinking tea, laughing with friends, cuddling animals, enjoying music and revelling in the wonder of the great outdoors.

Please have a look around, there’s dozens of written musings on the blog, dozens on YouTube videos on my channel, some groovy books and audiobooks I created, an in-depth video companion course for True Nature: An Exploration of Being Human and a short and sweet jumpstart course A Fresh Life

Don’t hesitate to get in touch with me: shannon@evergreeninsight.com + sign up below to get my weekly love letters! If social media is your thing, you can also follow along on facebook 🙂

Sending you all the love we both are xx


The true nature of every human being is peace of mind, well-being and wisdom. There’s nothing we need to do to have that because we already are that, right here, right now. Whenever we’re not feeling at peace we’re simply caught up in thought masquerading as truth. True Nature is an exploration of being human: who we really are, how we create our experience of reality and why truly understanding that can lead to profound transformation.

Using nature metaphors to describe the psychological principles by which we all operate, this book is a reminder of what’s always true, even when we’re feeling scared, confused or hurt. It’s designed to wake us up to our true nature, spark insights into how we all operate and point out the kindness of the design. There is nothing to do, only something to see. You don’t need self-help or fixing. All you could ever need is a gentle reminder of what’s true: everything you want and need is within you, you have innate mental health and well-being, and there exists solid principles underlying these truths that when understood make all the difference. Welcome home.

Prefer to listen instead? I recorded the True Nature Audiobook because I know how nice it can be to listen to books instead of reading them 🙂

I was recently interviewed by my friend and colleague Nicola Bird on the Little Peace of Mind podcast about True Nature, my personal journey with anxiety and how simply understanding makes all the difference. Listen here!

True Nature Series

I’m really happy to announce that I’ll be writing a series of shorter books that really dives into the practicality of this understanding and how this helps with topics we all commonly struggle with as human beings.

Book 1 is on Anxiety! It was a no-brainer to start with the thing I’ve had the most personal transformation around, simply from seeing how the mind works.

Earth Day 2019

Happy Earth Day sweethearts… in the past Earth Day has always been a day where I try to “get out in nature”, allow myself to bask in gratitude, and treat it like an ecological thanksgiving. But this Earth Day, April 22nd 2019, I really realize that’s nowhere near enough. My love affair with nature began …

Giving Up

There’s a paradox I’m seeing more deeply lately, that brings with it an enormous feeling of relief: giving up is how I get what I’m looking for. I’ve been spending a lot of time lately hanging out and exploring the unknown. Asking the big questions. Getting quiet. Going inwards. The unknown is this gorgeous space …
