The Global Consciousness Reset
is Happening Now!

Who We Are

We are dedicated to working with all people - through the universal need to connect and to Heal

Who are we? The Shift Foundation, a Texas non-profit, is focused on growing  a a community of volunteers, healers, practitioners, free-thinkers, artists, networkers, guided souls and like-minds to help facilitate the shift in human awareness. As a non-profit organization, our core volunteers are here to connect, help unify and assist in healing those who are facing issues that require more than just physical and material support, those who need a better understanding consciousness and support of spirit. 

Members of The Shift Foundation and extended community are also involved with works nationally and internationally, lecture and teaching on various aspects of the global transformation.

Our Approach

The Shift Foundation

Originally founded in 2005 as an alternative spiritual development & non-profit charitable organization, “The Foundation for Spiritual Advancement”, we have since gone through a number of incarnations. In 2008 the concept for “The Shift Foundation” was created. In 2016, we decided to re-vamp the non-profit association with an emphasis on spiritual engagement and a more participatory role with teachings, offerings, ceremonies & the ritual experience.
We are still involved with lectures, classes, workshops and counseling – publicly, privately and online.
Our current directors are:
-Russ von Ohlhausen
-Shannon Gill
-Sarah Buss

— Our Mission

To share what we have and what we have learned with others as we move faster towards the “Shift” of human awareness. Moving from a focus on the big “I” of self, to the little “i” with the Self.

— Our Vision

Our vision may be sometimes limited and may not be always 20/20 but we see everything as Illuminated from within! We work with what we have and how we find things to be. And we strive to leave it better than we found it. That is our vision.

— Our Story

We realize we are each be initiated from our personal story, into a higher understanding of the Cosmic Story. Enjoy your story – but leave it at the gate!
