About Shelly

Shelly Reef’s journey began in 1972 when she spontaneously discovered meditation at the home of her birth in Kansas. She was age seven at the time. By age 22, she was studying Zen Buddhism in Asia, and in her mid-thirties she turned her attention to quantum science as applied to spirituality. Today, she works full time as an empath, healer, and teacher of meditation.

A lifetime pursuit of spiritual wisdom led to extensive studies in Japan, Bali, Thailand, Peru, and the United States. Teachers of Buddhism, shamanism, yoga, energy and sound healing, quantum science, and modern spiritualism helped to define the work that Shelly offers today. 

The self-appointed title “World Spiritualist” refers to her agenda of no-agenda other than awakening inner joy and compassion in the hearts of as many fellow humans as possible in her lifetime. She describes her work as being unbound by religion, culture, or social construct. Her mission is your happiness and the resulting harmony of life on Earth.

Shelly is co-developer of AntiGravity Restorative Yoga, a former master instructor of nearly every form of AntiGravity Yoga, and has held master instructor trainings in over 15 countries since 2010.

Traveling worldwide to offer workshops, public appearances, and retreats, Shelly has also lectured on the topics of integrative healthcare, sound healing, and meditation at New York University, Tze Shan Monastery in Hong Kong, AsiaSpa Awards, and many more.

Shelly is currently based in Reykjavik, Iceland and San Diego, California where she offers private empathic readings in person and globally via video calling. She is the author of the soon-to-be-released book, “Silent Monkey: Meditation for the wildest of minds”.
