Every single human being has innate well-being, wisdom and peace of mind. It’s our very nature; the default state we’re all born into. When we innocently get caught up in our thinking, it doesn’t look this way. We lose sight of the constant beneath thought: unconditional peace of mind.

It’s so human of us to misunderstand where our experience comes from. As much as it looks like it’s coming to us from the outside world, it’s only ever coming through us from our thought/feeling in the moment. Contrary to what we’ve been taught, our psychological experience is created by energy brought to life within us through consciousness. The content of our thinking varies but the principles behind that experience are fundamental truths of the human experience.

Thankfully, everything we ever truly need is available to us. The same way the sun is always radiating light and heat, even when we don’t see it or feel it, we are innately well even when we don’t see it or feel it. The more we understand the nature of our experience, the more clearly we see life and, consequently, the better our experience of life gets.



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.

I’m so delighted you’re here!

I’m Shannon Cooper, a transformative coach and author living in beautiful Rossland, British Columbia, Canada.

I share a simple understanding about the nature of our human experience that naturally allows us to live with more well-being, wisdom and love.

Our relationships, thoughts, behaviours, habits and feelings can transform without having to work on ourselves. Through fresh eyes everything can be different, even if nothing changed on the outside.

I used to struggle for years with anxiety, depression, bad habits and obsessive-compulsive tendencies.

I did okay at learning how to cope and manage the symptoms but I was surviving instead of thriving. I tried positive thinking, counselling, gratitude journals, vision boards, group therapy, reframing exercises and many other self-help tools and techniques but any relief was temporary.

I knew I wasn’t seeing life clearly or accurately… but I was trying everything and nothing was working. I was convinced I would be forever stuck and miserable.

Thankfully not long after I graduated university I stumbled across fundamental universal truths that form an understanding of how our human experience is created.

Understanding this insightfully was life-changing; with more understanding came more freedom.

This inside-out understanding (often referred to as the Three Principles) is the foundation of how I help people. It’s the core of what I share in the hope of freeing us from our collective misunderstanding about how life works and what is possible for us.

I love helping people reconnect to their wisdom, rediscover their peace of mind and live with clarity and ease. Please get in touch with me if there’s any way I can help you!
