Sharon encourages “first things, first.” She elaborates, “;Our coming together is first and foremost to recognize our fundamental nature and realize the ground of being. The only true freedom is to be That, fully in the world. The embodiment of this realization is an extraordinary ordinariness -- an expression of seamless wisdom and love.” That recognition requires a shift of identity. Through retreats, weekend intensives, satsang, and private dokusans Sharon offers support for the required shift of indentity that is both direct and tailored to each person’s journey.
More About Sharon:
Sharon has a devotion and great love of the Truth. She is a gifted intuitive and a spiritual teacher in the lineage of Adyashanti whom she met at a conference in 2000. Three years later, after a series of awakenings to the fundamental Reality, Adya asked her to share the dharma with others and guide those genuinely drawn to the path of Truth. Since then, she continues to deepen into and embody this Truth herself. She invites you to “Come home . . .” to That which you’ve always been.
Sharon offers a palpable expression of love and intimacy that allows you to feel safe dropping into the deep vulnerability required to know yourself as the All. She offers support for the required shift of identity that is both direct and tailored to each person's journey. She lovingly invites you to “tell yourself the Truth” and to “Come home, sweetheart, come home. . . .” In the simple recognition of the One Ultimate Reality, which is always and already here, the experience of separation dissolves into a shift of identity that is both direct and tailored to each person’s journey.
Sharon teachings are based on her deep realization of silence and the way silence expresses itself in form. She notes, “Often there is still a thread that says the ‘me’ is going to get it; the ‘me’ is going to wake up. And it just isn’t true. It actually wakes up out of the ‘me.”’ So in her teaching, Sharon emphasizes how silence wakes up in the body and how the embodiment process is actualized. She is well qualified in this endeavor by her many years as an intuitive counselor. Since she has the ability to “read” the physical and energetic body, she is uniquely able to help unlock patterns that inhibit realization and the embodiment process that follows.
Sharon was born in 1947 in a little town in Kansas. Her lifelong glimpses of Truth led her to the grace of many teachers and spiritual traditions that increasingly revealed the “natural ground of being.” Raised in the Christian tradition and formerly a student of Jean Klein, Sharon’s interest in Spirit led her to explore Buddhist Meditation and the non-dual path. After meeting Adya, she and her husband Nate have dedicated their lives to his teaching and to the realization that it opened.
