Interview with Sharon

image descrtiption

01. What compelled you to write this book?

For years people have asked me to share with them my personal home practice. In this book I reveal my secrets — what I do everyday at home or in a hotel room when traveling. I also wanted to share with readers my theory that yoga could have been practiced in ancient Egypt and not be the sole property of the Indian culture. So the book has actually two parts: the 10-week do-it-yourself practice sequence and the Egyptian adventure story, where I describe my theory about the connection between yoga and the ancient Egyptian mystery schools and how I discovered the magic ten practices while conferring with an Egyptologist in the basement of the Cairo Museum who showed me some hieroglyphs etched into a three thousand year old stone cartouche.

02. Did anything notable or surprising occur during the writing process?

Yes, notable Egyptologist, Tommy Broussard came to visit me at my home for a few days and I was able to read out loud to him, an early draft of "A Story" - a section of the book that appears towards the end. This experience enabled me to run my ideas about the possible connection between yoga and ancient Egypt by him as well as ask him specific things relating to the pharaoh Akhenaten.

03. Why did you become a writer?

As a way to share with others the magical insights I have been privileged to experience in my life. My desire is to be useful and to serve the highest good.

04. What writer(s) have had the greatest influence on you?

Writers that speak to me like a friend. In other words, writers who communicate rather than profess or merely provide information. I am attracted to writers who believe in magic, mysticism and enlightenment.

05. What was your favorite book as a child?

The biography of Harry Houdini.
