Sharon Reinbott

Sharon Reinbott, M.A., is a hymnist and lay theologian. At retirement from a successful career, she headed to Death Valley to perform a Vision Fast, daring to name her soul gifts and offer them to the world. She received her M.A. in Culture and Spirituality from the Sophia Center at Holy Names University in Oakland, CA, where her work concentrated on the rewriting of Christian hymns to help bring about what Fr. Thomas Berry, CP described as a more beneficial relationship of the human to the earth.

She brings to her work a mixture of deep wisdom, creative thinking, and a wild, untamed, and fierce spirit, along with the thinking of Thomas Berry, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Bill Plotkin, and Clarissa Pinkola Estés. Years of practice of archetypal dream work have taught her to feel into the dream images, deepening her own spiritual work. Her practice of Biodanza since 2005 has deepened her ability to be truly present with another. She fervently believes that, with images that provide an increased understanding of human relationship to the evolution of the Universe, we can sing our way into its story.

Dream work

Sharon Reinbott has been working with her dreams for more than ten years. She describes dream work as the “single most growth-producing, healing, and spiritually arduous” modality she has ever used.  She is also a certified Purpose Guide by the Purpose Guides Institute in Fairfax, California. Her main interests lie in Evolutionary Spirituality and Deep Time, and embodying the Divine by living one’s purpose, while living one’s life on Earth.
