Linda Shea is a nurse educator and coach with an enduring interest in transformational healing and transformative learning. She began her nursing career in 1984 in the field of neonatal and pediatric critical care, and has been teaching undergraduate BSN students since 1997.
She is passionate about creating learning spaces for her students that promote deeper self-knowing, curiosity, compassion, and critical inquiry as foundations for excellence in nursing practice and scholarship. In her coaching practice, Linda works with people who are inspired to be in service to something greater than themselves, and to do that in a manner that authentically expresses their unique essence. Her doctoral dissertation focused on Ken Wilber’s Integral Theory in Nursing, an evolutionary developmental framework for supporting humanity not only to navigate these uncertain times, but also to evolve in consciousness and thrive.
Linda Shea has a Master’s degree in community health nursing, and values upstream approaches for promoting individual and collective health and well-being. She is also a graduate of the Integrative Energy Healing Program in Vancouver, Canada, a facilitator of health practitioner healing circles with Healing Circles Global, and has studied and practiced additional healing modalities.
