What to Expect at Women at the Well
How large will the workshop be?
Each workshop is limited to 8-10 pre-screened participants.
Who benefits from this workshop?
Whether you are 18 or 108, married or single, acting out or shutting down, Women at the Well gives you the tools you need to find a healthy sexual and emotional balance once again. Those who have experienced any type of sexual, emotional, physical, mental, or verbal abuse in their childhood or adult years find this experience extremely freeing, as do those who have been betrayed or traumatized in any way.
What can I expect from this workshop?
Individual counseling or coaching is incredibly valuable, but Shannon feels that group experiences provide an avenue for healing like nothing else. Because we’ve most often been wounded in relationship, we also experience the most healing in relationship. Here, you’ll develop friendships with other women who are eager to take off their masks, get real about their life experiences, discern what changes they are ready to make, and learn whole new ways of relating – with God, with men, and with themselves. You’ll learn about many helpful tools and resources and experience powerful coaching exercises designed to help you manage negative emotions (such as fear, anger, sadness, guilt, shame, etc.) and addictive patterns of relating (or not relating).
Expect laughter, tears, peace, joy, and freedom as sexual and emotional baggage from the past is unpacked, and hope for your future is cultivated. Above all, we want you to be able to engage with the group and the material on the deepest of levels, without fear of judgment. This intensive workshop is a safe place, and your personal comfort and confidentiality will remain our top concern. Like the original Woman at the Well (in John 4), we want you to have a personal, truth-filled encounter with Jesus Christ that truly transforms your life!
How much does the workshop cost?
Fee is $995.00 (payable in monthly payments if desired). Workshop materials and meals each day are included. Participants are responsible for their own travel and lodging expenses, but our shared Airbnb lodging cuts down significantly on lodging costs.
What airport would I need to fly into?
Tyler, Texas Workshop
*Tyler Pounds Regional Airport (TYR) – Tyler, Texas (we will provide transportation from the airport to hotel to workshop each day such that a rental car isn’t necessary)

What lodging is available?
The Richmond workshops will take place at Shannon’s home/Airbnb. Various room options are available upon request. All Tyler, Texas workshops take place at a local Airbnb. Upon acceptance, you will have a choice of staying with the group at the Airbnb, or renting a private hotel room nearby. We would be happy to match you with a roommate to reduce your lodging expense if desired.
Shannon has this uncanny ability to push you just enough. Get you just uncomfortable enough. Challenge you just enough. But not so much, if you are willing to trust the process and her and God through her, that you won’t be better for it. I was stretched farther this time, spiritually, than I have been, I think ever.
When I signed up for Women at the Well, I hated my body, and hated sex. If I could’ve lived life without sex, I would’ve been one happy camper! But, I knew that my husband would not be happy with that decision! So, I flew to Texas leaving my husband and four kids at home. After four days of trusting other women with all my deep, dark secrets, I was able to start my healing process. I left my baggage in Texas and came home so much lighter!
I have been able to look in the mirror in a different way. I am starting to see myself as a beautiful woman of God! And by seeing myself as beautiful, I am allowing my husband to see me as well! We are like newlyweds and enjoying each other in a way that we never have in our 12 years of marriage! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to experience such an amazing life-changing workshop!
This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience! You will face all of your negative emotions that drive you into unhealthy places, and discover joy as you journey toward freedom. The atmosphere that Shannon creates is one of full acceptance and trust. With the help of all the women I was able to share my dark secrets and was not condemned. Actually, through their help, I was able to make connections to my past that explained my actions and feelings that I have today. It truly felt like I was sitting in the presence of Christ just like the woman at the well in the Bible. There was love and concern for me, understanding of my struggles and support to overcome those struggles. This workshop has given me the tools I need to overcome and find freedom!
When I first sat down and looked at the women around me participating in this program, I was filled with uncertainty and fear. What would they think of me? What would they think of my sinful past and the way I still struggled with sexual dysfunction? Those fears were quickly relieved as we spent time learning each other’s story, and allowing God to work through each of us – bringing healing and hope in us all. I can now say I walk in freedom from my sexual issues and truly believe my identity in Christ and God’s love for me. I’m thankful for the grace-filled, honest environment this program provided to help usher in those needed heart changes.
