Sunshine and Resonate
Connection Progression is the result of two scientists finding their individual spiritual paths through yoga before uniting together. Nathan "ResoNate" Magee (BA- Psychology, MS- Special Education. Previously a relationship education data scientist at Penn State with multiple yoga teacher trainings) is passionate about sharing daily spiritual practice and facilitating pathways for deepening relationships. Stacy "Sunshine" Schuur (MS in Marine Biology was an environmental chemist/science advisor at NIST with RYT 200 in Ashtanga and Hatha with Ayurvedic emphasis from Rishikul Yogshala, India and gifted energy mover with Usui reiki master certification from Natural Healer) is a connector with current passion for facilitating bliss and creating network of communities for nomads and others that want to co-create the modern ancient way. Together, ResoNate and Sunshine have spent time in nature, strengthening their own practices and finding new ways to harmoniously connect and balance the masculine-feminine dynamic. They share these offerings online through ConnectionProgression.us and in person. They have been traveling full-time in their shuttle bus with Duncan-dog since August of 2021 (a six week trip to see the Redwoods that is still continuing). They enjoy hiking, slacklining, flow arts, roller coasters, museums, and eating delicious meals in beautiful locations.
Kristin is originally from Indianapolis, IN and has been on the road for over 4 years. About two years into her nomadic journey, she finally had the courage to share her true self with the world. She is now an openly proud lesbian traveling with her partner and their two dogs in a camper van. Since coming out, her passion for queer community has continuously grown and she is proud to be able to run an organization that fosters queer community on the road. Queer community saved her life and she hopes to continue providing that safe space for queer folks and allies!
