Trained from childhood in the Classical Western arts of Ballet, Opera and Theatre, after receiving a diploma from the Peabody Conservatory of Music, a B.A. in Theatre from the University of Maryland and an M.A. in Education from George Washington University, Sharron became a member of New York City’s vital dance/theatre/performance art scene. She then moved to Boston where she became known for her innovative multicultural dance/theatre/video productions, which wove together the realms of psychology, technology, myth, history and social criticism. This work was supported by the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, the Boston Arts Lottery and the Cambridge Arts Council. She began her studies in Classical Indian Dance, Music, Yoga, and Mythology in 1978.

From 1983-1988, with the assistance of a professional development grant from the American Institute of Indian Studies (1983-84), and a Fulbright Senior Research Fellowship (1986-88), she began extensive research into the art, culture and spiritual traditions of North India. During this time she was accepted as the first American disciple of India’s legendary Kathak dancer and early Bollywood film star, Sitara Devi and was initiated into a sacred tradition of the ancient feminine Yogic Arts that had been handed down from teacher to student for thousands of years.

Since that time of introduction and initiation she has consistently sought out other remnants of these teachings in traditional cultures throughout the world. From Chögyal Namkhai Norbu, Tibetan master of Tantra and Dzogchen, she was introduced to the Primordial Tradition of the ancients and learned the transformational practices created to purify the mind and body and awaken one to their true Divinity. With Dr. Robert Masters she investigated trance techniques, his Psychophysical Method of Neuro-sensory Re-education, the realm of healing and the Egyptian Mysteries. With Bengali tabla master, Shashank Bakshi, She studied Indian Classical vocal music and deepened her perception of the effects of sound and vibration on the luminous energy field. For the past thirteen years, together with her husband, hermetic scholar and filmmaker Jay Weidner, she has done extensive research into the Western Traditions of Alchemy, Gnosticism, and the Kabbalah.

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.
