Dear Friends,

WHAT’S NEW? Ignite the Power Within!


Longing to step off the hamster wheel and into your own authentic power? Ever feel like you’re stuck on the hamster wheel of life, unable to move forward with your dreams? Like you’re just going round and round, with nothing ever changing or improving?

I know exactly what that’s like – I’ve been there myself! And during the fabulous (and free!) Ignite the Power Within telesummit, I’ll be explaining how I moved past that feeling of stuck-ness and into my own authentic power. I’ll also be sharing the practical tools and techniques that worked for me.

Join me and 21 other expert speakers for an informative, inspirational, and motivational interview series that runs from June 25 to August 2. Between all of us, we’ll help you to identify and take the actions you need to transform the rest of 2013 into your best year yet!

Be there or be square! To sign up for our free Ignite the Power Within Telesummit click here.

Blessings and love, Sheri Rosenthal

Summer is Personal Intensive Time with Sheri in St Pete, FL!

You know you’re a good person and deserve the best in life.
And you know that life shouldn’t have to be so difficult.
But even though you know that deep in your heart, do you still

  • Wake up wondering whose life you’re living?
  • Feel like you’re lacking clarity?
  • Find yourself short-tempered, frustrated or unhappy?
  • Wish your relationships were more supportive and loving?
  • Want to forgive and move on, but can’t?
  • Crave freedom from your own life and mind?

Sheri RosenthalAre you ready to break out of the box you call reality? If so – join me for a Personal Intensive.

It’s a powerful experience and is a great way to jump-start your life. In my experience, the root of most people’s issues is a belief system that is sabotaging their life – rather than supporting it.

Imagine what life could be like if you were calm and centered no matter what situation you faced in life, rather than emotional and unclear.

What if you no longer took people’s actions personally? Or if forgiveness came easy to you? Or even if you never got in another argument for the rest of your life?! Believe me – it is possible.

Sheri, how will I benefit? You’ll learn to…

  • Take positive action in life – regardless of anxiety or fear.
  • No longer feel victimized by the people in your life.
  • Deal with people openly, without taking their actions and words to heart.
  • Let go of the burdens of the past, forgive and move on with gratitude and joy.
  • Reclaim your self-esteem and greater life purpose.
  • Replace anger with focused clarity.
  • No longer fear confrontation, or be a doormat for others.
  • Come to a place of self-acceptance, no matter what actions you took in the past.
  • Clearly identify your limiting beliefs, their origin and true purpose – empowering you to make healthier life choices.
  • Utilize specific tools to help you live courageously, boldly, and with your head held high.

Who would NOT benefit from a Personal Intensive?

  • Anyone strongly invested in being a victim or being right over being happy.
  • People who are lazy and won’t do their “homework.”
  • Those unwilling to make an investment in themselves because they don’t think they’re worth it.
  • Anyone who thinks I have a magic wand and can fix them – rather than coming here to get support so they can change themselves.
  • Those who have no faith that their life can actually be great!

If this sounds like something that you could use – I encourage you read more about the experience on the website and make an appointment to chat with me right away about your desires and goals! The summertime intensives book up early so I suggest you do take action quickly. Blessings, Sheri

Body, Mind, Spirit and Place…New Trends in Travel
Nepal retreat

Volunteering. Spa Vacations. Yoga retreats. Wellness holidays. Sacred sites. Eco-tours. Perhaps you have noticed the world of tourism changing, or dare I say, evolving. Once the domain of hippies and New-Agers, it seems these tourism trends are becoming more and more mainstream as people yearn for enriching and meaningful holiday experiences rather than hedonistic escapism and way too much food and alcohol.

A Modern Resurgence

Sacred and wellness travel is by no means new, for centuries people have traveled to inspiring destinations to gain a new perspective or vision, participate in a spiritual pilgrimage, or even ‘take the waters’ at therapeutic spas and natural springs. Holidays were in fact used as holy-days. But the last ten years has seen a dramatic resurgence in this kind of vacation, with thousands of new products and packages flooding the market to cater for this need. So why this sudden shift from cocktails by the pool to yoga in the mountains?

We Need to Reconnect
Nepal spiritual journey

It seems to have a lot to do with our modern, urban life so rich in technology, information and entertainment but so devoid of stillness, reflection and connection with nature. We spend so much of our lives in an endless routine of working, sitting in front of a TV or a computer and lately texting, tweeting and facebooking our friends. Retreat-style vacations allow us to literally ‘un-plug’ from this routine, to leave the noise and the drama at home for awhile, and to reconnect with our own intuition and reflect on our own lives and possibilities.

A Like-Minded Community

Perhaps another factor is a desire for community. We no longer live in close-knit communities and religion has largely waned. Many tours provide a special group dynamic where like-minded people can enjoy a rich exchange of ideas and share powerful experiences together.

An Opportunity for Spiritual Growth
Nepal Spiritual journey

Personal growth in general is on many people’s minds, and we are reminded often to take care of our physical and emotional health, but what about our spiritual health? There are many different retreats and therapies that allow you to dive deep into your soul and access your own power and positive energy. It may be as simple as meditating in the Himalayas, visiting a sacred site, or volunteering your time and efforts to those less fortunate than you.

A New Perspective

One of the greatest gifts of all these trips can offer, is the opportunity to see ourselves and our lives in a new way. With distance comes perspective, in different cultures we examine our own values and in new places we must give up our illusion of control and regain our sense of wonder. This can be a powerful catalyst for self-transformation.

Sacred Sites and Power Places
Travel to Nepal

Interestingly, sometimes the place itself can also provide a catalyst for transformation. Some places for various reasons have become places of power, where sacred energies have built up and can often be felt or accessed by visitors and inhabitants. It may simply be the inspiration of seeing a beautiful natural wonder such as Mount Everest or the Grand Canyon.

Other places may have been inhabited by saintly beings such as Buddha’s birthplace in Lumbini, and Nepal have since become a place of pilgrimage and devotion. Some, such as Glastonbury in England, have been built on converging Earth energy lines, or ley lines, creating a concentrated and powerful resonance in that area. The Pyramids in Egypt have arisen from a spiritually advanced civilization and were constructed according to sacred geometric principles and arranged as cosmic star maps.

Some locations are considered sacred because cultures have continually used them as spiritual centers for thousands of years and collective energies have built up over time, such as the holy city of Varanasi on the Ganges river in India. With intention, receptivity and preparation, travelers and pilgrims can visit these places to enhance their own unique journey through life.

Where To Next?
Sharee James

So the remaining question is, where is your soul being called to? The time is now and there has never been so much choice. Of course if you ask me – I can’t help but invite you join me in Nepal for Kindfulness – a Healing Retreat in the Himalayas, October 16-25th, 2013!

Why should you come? Well, it’s a chance to slow down, reconnect with your inner self and deeper purpose, and to re-discover your unlimited potential amidst the powerful sacred energies of the Himalayas. Now I ask you – what could be better?

Blessings, Sharee James

Sharee James, has been leading tours in the Himalayas of Nepal for the past 4 years. Trained as a naturopath, yoga teacher, pranic healer and massage therapist, Sharee caught the travel bug in her early twenties and spent 6 years traveling the world on her own. Out of the 20 countries that she visited on her travels, the spirituality, fascinating culture and ancient healing traditions of Nepal captured her heart and drew her back again and again.
