“No one is going to give you permission to be powerful. Only you can claim it.”

– Sharon Balsamo

I feel your soul
stirring in your belly

a soft flame,
it is warm and comforting
a deep knowing

you are meant for something greater than this.

The fire within
And when we meet another soul
See fire glowing in their belly
it warms us

we know we are not alone.

We are the DREAMERS
We are the HEALERS

The wave makers
The wise ones
Justice seekers and peace keepers

We are the teachers and the artists
Mothers and ministers
Showing a new way
We weave our dreams into the fabric of the world

As the world calls us forward
asking for our stories and our tears and our dancing

for this is our medicine

we weave our soul fire
into the essence of everything we are

We are remembering our power.

We are expanding into it
Spreading our wings and deepening our roots
Conjuring ~ creating ~ connecting ~ calling forth


Without apology
We will no longer be still
Or silent
Or small
Or afraid

We will no longer say yes when we want to say no
and we will no longer say no
to ourselves
and our dreams
and the deep desires crackling

out of the fire in our bellies

we will tend to them lovingly
feed them with bits of bark and grass
until they are roaring mightily

as we stand fully in our power

we dream the world into being

create the world we wish to live in
gathering around our shared fire

remembering ourselves
remembering each other

remembering the magic

of what it means to be



this is our journey.

Last night I dreamed of a massive river, flowing down a massive mountain. I was riding the tumbles and rapids of the river; in my dream I knew this water well, like an old friend. The water was clear blue, deep, moving swiftly. I came upon a fork in this mighty river....

In 2007 I began working for a wilderness therapy program called SageWalk, the wilderness school. We took teens with behavioral and emotional issues into the high desert of Central Oregon, taught them survival skills, and allowed the experience of living in nature...

It's not about whether you are doing something right or wrong.

Forget right and wrong.

Ask yourself: “does it serve me? Is it moving me towards my desire or away?” You have power over your thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors. Do they serve you, or work against you? Are you living in true alignment with your values or living a life you think others expect of you?

Let's Talk.

Schedule a complimentary 45 minute session with me. I want to hear where you are and where you want to go so I know how I can be of service to you. 

Client Experience

“Sharon has an amazing magical energy – every time I go to an event she is hosting, I am always blown away by Sharon’s insights and the personal discoveries that come from her events. It gives me a kind of spiritual and witchy high and that energized feeling stays with me for weeks.

Sharon’s retreat was thoughtful, organized, and perfectly calibrated to the group. She allowed us to linger where we needed to, or go faster if the group was ready to move on. I entered the space and immediately felt safe, and left feeling empowered and ready for action.”
