Creativity. Power. Purpose. Voice.

Shamama is a group of leaders in the creative and healing arts dedicated to helping you tap into your creativity, unleash your power, find your purpose, and express your voice through special events, workshops, retreats, coaching, and consulting. We find joy around creative play, nature-based activities, breathwork and somatic experiences.

Michele Lussky, Creativity Coach and Breathwork Facilitaor

I'm a Creativity Coach, Breathwork Facilitator, Writer, Public Speaker, and former Writing Professor who created Shamama because I saw people all around me who are stuck, discouraged, or full of fear--people who are unable to tell their story, explore with child-like abandon, live their authentic life, or manifest their dreams.


I help people know, trust, and express themselves by sharing the unique tools that I have gleaned from 25 years of teaching college writing and leading creativity workshops--sessions I call "journeying within". Through both conventional and unconventional methods  (such as somatic awareness, breathwork meditation, drumming, doodling, and  mandala-making), I can help you release old baggage and blocks--and embrace your pure creative force. My work is steeped in self-compassion, kindness, intuition, positivity, and practicality.  What will happen when you step into the mind-heart vortex?

The Refugee Education Center supports refugees in their journey to become fully participating members of the West Michigan community. They envision a thriving, multicultural West Michigan community where all have an opportunity to pursue a better future!


Founded in 2006, the Refugee Education Center (REC) is a registered 501(c) (3) non-profit based in Grand Rapids, MI. Formed by refugees and immigrants, it has always been central to the organization to share the knowledge learned from a first-person perspective of how to navigate refugee services and participating as a new member of the community. While growing to add expert knowledge of refugee and social services, REC has viewed and will always view this first-hand experience as vital to the organization’s success. REC primarily engages the refugee community, and newly resettled refugees in two ways, including: through partnerships with local refugee resettlement agencies, and through REC’s own Community Leaders embedded in the community. REC walks alongside refugees in the post-settlement phase of their journey —continuing services for however long it takes to provide the tools and remove the barriers to fully participate in the community. Donate Now!
