About Sharon Heller

About 8 years ago, Sharon Heller stopped talking about her profound near-death experience in the past tense, as if something miraculous once upon a time, long ago, happened to her. She decided to live in the miraculous moment and to become who she was during her NDE, an immense being of Light and Love, and a representative of the Divine on Earth. She has used her own life as a model for her first full-length fictional work, "Accidental Mystic".

Sharon Heller is co-founder and co-coordinator for the Austin chapter of the International Association for Near-Death Studies. She has a B.A. in Anthroposophy (Spiritual Science of Rudolf Steiner) and an M.S. in Community Health Promotion. She is National Brain Gym® Faculty, a Core Specialist for the MNRI (Masgutova Neuromuscular Reflex Integration), and a certified Trainer/Mentor for the Center for Soulful Living. She is also a certified Waldorf teacher and Curative educator, has taught grades pre-K through 10 and adult education. She has worked with thousands in private sessions, in public, charter and private schools, school districts and regions, and leads workshops on learning, motivation, personal growth and, increasingly, on living a life with a foot in two worlds, the mystical and the practical.

Her friend and mentor, Bill Bauman, quipped that a good description of her would be “Dimensions Are Us”.

What's it all about? Why am I here with these people?, What should I be doing? For what purpose do I exist? Life is about loving and interconnectedness with one another at each and every moment. By reading Sharon Heller's novel and by visiting Michael and the amazing experiences with Rose that awakened his spirit, I saw my own personal journey from a new,deeper and more profound perspective. Accidental Mystic will inspire you as it inspired me You will be guided into your own journey of self-discovery.

This is simply a great journey with incredible understanding of the way it is. There are several people I know and love that I wish would read this book at least three times for the possibility of opening a door or some doors....like on the basis that the first read is not real, the second read is you (ie not me) and the third.....Oh, I knew this to be this way, it is mine.

I found Accidental Mystic to be an amazing journey of self-discovery. The author skillfully draws from personal experience and incorporates this into a journal of one man’s transformation from just existing to really being present in the moment.
After encountering a mystic in the Colorado wilderness, Michael has the opportunity to learn many of life’s lessons. The story is like a beautiful woven blanket of which each of its strands vividly interconnects with another. This connectedness provides a sense of what is really important in ones life and in doing so invites the reader to discern what their purpose for being is.
In relating the Near Death Experience in the story line the author provides the reader with a better sense of assessing the questions of whom, how and why are we here. This leads to a surprise ending that emphasizes life’s full circle and how we are truly connected with each other.

This is the first book I have read by this author and I found it to be a breathtaking read that carries the reader from beginning to end. Both exciting and inspiring it is an elegant blending of accessible characters and their ventures into the mystical side of life. A 'must read'.

Review by: LH ofMN on Nov. 11, 2010 :
Sharon Heller's novel about a near death experience and--maybe more importantly--its aftermath is the kind of book you keep thinking about long after you've read the last page. Heller, a first-time novelist, mimics the changes that the protagonist, Michael, experiences in her writing. This technique can sometimes be annoying, but Heller manages to make it work. Michael's relationship with Rose, the old woman he meets in the wilderness, keeps the reader moving through the book to find out the answers to both Michael's and the reader's own questions. The author, a near death experiencer herself, has written a novel that is engaging, thought provoking, and informative. It is the kind of book that appeals to a diverse audience.
