Sheri’s Story:

Sheri Rosenthal

My personal adventure began in 1998 when I was going through a challenging time in my life. I realized on some level that I had never been truly happy. Although I changed: husbands (twice), cities (five moves), podiatric practices (three different offices) and friends (should we go there?), I still had no real joy in my life.

A leap of faith was the last resort – I sold my practice, boy-friend (only kidding), and home – and closed the surgical residency program I was director of (yes, that was a pretty big deal and yes, the medical community thought I was nuts).

During this time I received a copy of don Miguel Ruiz’s book (The Four Agreements®) and decided to go on one of his spiritual journeys to the sacred site of Teotihuacán. The journey was profound – I discovered there wasn’t anything outside of myself that needed changing at all – instead it was what I believed about myself and my world that needed work!

It was the first time I saw myself as an expression of divine consciousness and I realized my pain stemmed from my basic lack of self-love and limiting beliefs. As a result of that journey, I became an apprentice of don Miguel Ruiz and later a teacher of the Toltec philosophy.

From 2000 to 2002 I had the privilege to design and run don Miguel Ruiz’s spiritual journeys, and co-teach with him at his workshops. Learning from don Miguel inspired me to write: The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Toltec Wisdom, Banish Mind Spam! and to co-create the WITH Forgiveness – Are You Ready? online program with my dear friend Susyn Reeve.

In 2002 I gave birth to Journeys of the Spirit® to assist others on their transformational journey and to give back what I personally received. As a journey leader for many years, I have watched people travel to faraway places and come “home” to themselves again and again, changing their life perspective from one of fear and limitation, to one of love and limitless possibility.

I believe that spiritual journeys are truly awe-inspiring, and it’s my passion to create experiences that free individuals to be their very best in this life-time. (I hope to be able to offer this gift to others for the rest of my life.)
