From the ashram, Sharon moved to Hollywood for an award-winning career as film editor, director, and producer, working on many news feature shows and television programs including The Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers and X-MEN (for which she was called an "unsung hero" in this October 30th article in the Hollywood Reporter). These mainstream avenues honed Sharon's creative skills and brought her in touch with speaking to mainstream audiences.

Reverend Dr. Michael Beckwith, AGAPE:

"Spirituality For Dummies is a Mecca for those who are sincerely seeking the genuine meaning and practice of spirituality.  Sharon Janis fuses mystical insights drawn from the east/west approaches, resulting in a volume that opens the heart, exhilarates the mind, and inflames the soul.  No matter upon which rung of the spiritual ladder you now stand, expect to be catapulted to the next level of awareness through practice of the wisdom-offerings in this scripture of Truth.""

Dr. Christopher Key Chapple,
Loyola Marymount University

"This book bridges the gap between conventional experience and the spiritual life. Spirituality for Dummies gives practical advice for entering the path of spirituality, borrowing wisdom from a host of religious, philosophical, and comedic traditions. Insightful, wise, and humorous, this book can and should be read by all, from novice to saint!"
