joyful connection. weaving magic. elevating happiness. holding sacred space.

Retreats are a place to regroup, reground, and find your center. I find holding space to be a sacred calling – one where everyone needs to feel safe and nourished. I love facilitating retreats whether it’s a half-day, a full day or a weekend. I love helping folks retreat from regular life as a way inward to knowing oneself at a deeper level. With the power of circles, and the magic of facilitation, I find retreats to be one of the most powerful ways to heal. I enjoy connecting groups with yoga, mindfulness, deep rest and positive psychology work in diverse settings with a variety of groups.


“Working with Sharon over the last 12 years in yoga classes, private sessions, workshops and retreat has taught me how to become embodied. Sharon’s unique mixture of humor, realism, science and ayurvedic knowledge is truly special and her strong foundation in clinical social work shines through in everything she does. I feel very lucky to have found her and I continue to grow because of her teachings.”



“Thanks a million for this weekend (retreat). It was priceless. I found a part of myself I forgot was under there. It feels good. “



“As a highly sensitive person with a sometimes-more-than-slightly-inappropritate sense of humor, there are very few people I would follow into a meditation workshop, much less a weekend retreat… Sharon is one of those few. She manages to create a container of genuine depth, authenticity and personality where one can feel completely empowered to do the brave work of transformation – or sometimes just deeply rest. Sign me up for anything she’s leading.”
