Shari A. Hembree is an artist, businesswoman, Reiki Master Teacher, and author in the field of authenticity and spiritualism. Her first book, Journey of the Lightworker, is a breakthrough novel that crosses mainstream thought with deep spiritual truths. Reminiscent of Eat, Pray, Love with a twist of The Alchemist, this soul-stirring, semi-allegorical tale takes the reader on a journey of self-discovery and healing, as the true meaning of life is revealed. From a long forgotten childhood dream to a place deep within the spirit, Journey of the Lightworker leads the reader on a delightful winding path to a destination of love and Divine spiritual purpose. Shari’s sequel to this inspirational novel is underway, promising even more spiritual insight and life-changing adventure.

An inspired creator, Shari has produced videos of her popular blog posts and a meditation series to motivate her audience to take positive action in their lives. She is currently planning a local guest-speaking tour at several upcoming events on the topics of authenticity and spiritualism. Shari holds an undergraduate degree from McMurry University in Abilene, Texas, and completed Rice University’s Executive Program for Managers in Houston, Texas. She received her Reiki Master Teacher certification from The International Center for Reiki Training at Stonehenge, England.

“I’ve had a sense of adventure since childhood. My imagination could take me on a journey instantly—whether through my artwork, my love of traveling, or boldly dreaming about how I’d like my life to look. My dreams created a vision, and I learned to take action on those visions to create a truly authentic life. I discovered that I’m happiest when helping others. This aspect of my life is expressed through my volunteer work, my inspirational writing, and now as a Lightworker.” —Shari A. Hembree
