Sheri’s personal adventure began in 1998, when she was going through a challenging time in her life and finally admitted to herself that on some level she had never been truly happy.
Although she changed: husbands (twice), cities (five moves), podiatric practices (three different practices in three different states), and friends (should we go there?), she still had no real joy in my life.
I was so miserable that I felt like I needed to take a leap of faith.”
She sold her very successful practice, her home and closed the surgical residency program she had been directing.
According to Sheri, “Truly — it’s hard to feel successful when you’re unhappy in your work and can’t maintain a healthy relationship. No matter what it looks like on the outside to everyone else, it feels like CRAP on the inside. I was frustrated because I felt like I couldn’t do what I wanted to do and was compromising my dream. So I finally walked away from my schooling, a very successful practice, and a phenomenal income to find my heart’s desire. I turned my back on what my family wanted for me even though it had made my parents proud — because it didn’t really make ME feel proud to be living a lie.”
During this time Sheri received a copy of don Miguel Ruiz’s NY Times bestselling book (The Four Agreements®) and decided to go on one of his spiritual journeys to the sacred site of Teotihuacán, Mexico. This was her first experience with transformational retreats.
She spent nearly eight years on a transformative spiritual quest with her teacher.
