"Sharron’s techniques for working with Tantra are both practical and powerful. Her knowledge of the Goddess is deep-felt and genuine; her manner sincere. Her poetic Goddess imagery filled me with positive feelings about my spirituality and myself. Listening to her opens doors in your mind, and you wind up understanding more about yourself than when you started."
~Sage Woman Magazine

I pay homage to my Guruji, Sitara Devi, Queen of Kathak dance, who introduced me to the radiant path of the Temple Priestess. To my teachers, Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche, Dr. Robert Masters, Shashanka Bakshi, my husband Jay Weidner, my parents, and to the goddesses, dakinis, and ancestors who have allowed me to be a conduit for their sacred teachings.

May the lotus feet of the great masters continuously walk upon the earth. May all beings be filled with grace, joy, abundance and bliss.
