Hi! I’m Shanna. A writer, performer, video editor, meditation guide, and creative coach. You can learn more about me here. I also facilitate an online creative collective called The Compassionate Creative Collective, which you can learn about here!

Ok now you know who I am! Let me tell you more about the The I Love You Project!

The I Love You Project is a collaborative visual poem written and voiced by myself. I wrote the poem in May during one of The Collective’s Creative Power Hours. This piece hasn’t left me alone since. Probably because the poem tells us what we desperately need to know: No matter who you are or what you do, you are worthy of love simply because you are here.

The idea behind the visual is to capture an array of people on video reacting to the poem. This is where you come in! I’m asking folks to take 5 minutes to collaborate with me by recording themselves listening to the poem for the first time. Once you’ve listened, upload your video. (You can do this directly from your phone) I will then edit those reactions together to create what will essentially be a love note to the world. Something you can send to a friend when they need to be reminded they are loved. Something you can watch when YOU need to be reminded you are loved.

Also, there’s a song! Aptly titled “O, I Love You” by the wonderful musician Essie Jain who has given us permission to use her beautiful work!

Still with me? FABULOUS. Complete the waiver below to receive an email full of further instructions, links to the poem audio, a free month of The Collective as a thank you for participating, and link to upload your video! The deadline for submissions is Sunday, August 22, 2021.​

PS: If you have a pal somewhere in the world that could use some love, send them the link to this page so they can participate too! Because everyone deserves to be told I love you.
