I'm a writer. A teacher. A healer.
A musician. A mystic. A comic.
I'm Michael Jason Sherman. What I do is help leaders and deep thinkers to focus on "receiving" - meaning both listening better to others but also to sensing one's own wisdom, clarity and guidance.
I've had a life of learning and movement and living in diverse worlds. My learning now is how to teach what I know. In this way, I hope to impact people with practices that access new resources of energy.
I have unique gifts that really help people. My professional life has centered upon teaching the public about mirroring communication, an energy focused, empowering communication practice. It's like music to me, and it has helped many others along the way.
At heart, I am a writer. Books and stories of healing and movement live in my bones. My first published book is called: The Zen of Solo Travel: A Journey from Anxiety to Enlightenment.
I love teaching the road as medicine. -Michael
