About Sharon Farber
Now: The last 3 years have been very exciting. When I decided to “become” a medium, many people reacted with versions of “I thought you had to be born with that” and “I didn’t think it was something you could learn.” I wasn’t sure about that myself. I did extensive reading and then put it into practice. The quiet mind used to connect with spirit is pretty much the same place I go to do healing. I could do it! I have since acknowledged that this is a gift I have and that I’ve been guided to develop it and let it unfold.
I was nearly jumping up and down with excitement when I had my first connection with someone else’s loved one in spirit. “Ruth” confirmed that yes, her dad had an “L” name, he did smoke a lot of cigarettes, and yes he died of cancer. The coolest part was that I had “seen” a military uniform. Not only had Dad been in the military, but Ruth had his uniform and was just looking at it a couple of days before. This was just a start, but it showed me that it was possible, which gave me the confidence to invest my time and energy in further developing these skills.
I spent 6 months in the Basics of Mediumship Class at the New England School of Metaphysics and took workshops and classes with other mediums. I visited Spiritualist Churches, where healing and spirit communication are the main elements of the services. I attended events and received readings, exposed my kids to professional mediums so they wouldn’t think Mom had gone nuts, participated in circles, and started practicing on live volunteers. I even let my guides convince me to go to the Arthur Findlay College, in England, for a week mediumship intensive!
My week at the Arthur Findlay College was magical, and confirmed that this is what I am meant to be doing. Medium Colin Bates told me that I’ve been using my mediumistic skills my whole life and that I am a “natural medium”. My skills have improved. I’ve made connections in person, by phone, in “virtual circles” and remotely. I am now giving small group readings as well as private sessions. It is very healing for people to learn that their loved ones are still around and care about them and I want to help as many people as possible to experience this.
I started facilitating a mediumship development circle in May 2012. We sit every Wednesday night to connect with spirit and give messages to each other. It is thrilling to experience our gifts expanding. I think it is particularly validating (and fun) when several of us link with the same spirit and each contribute evidence. We do gallery style circles on the first Wednesday of the month, where we invite four guests to be “sitters” for us. Guests must register in advance.
I created Dragonfly Healing Arts to provide a place for many types of healing, including massage therapy, Reiki, and mediumship. The center opened in September 2013. Guest healers and mediums share their gifts as well. I am excited, and so grateful to my guides and teachers on both sides of the veil, for their support, love and guidance on this path.
Update: I returned to Arthur Findlay College in February, for another week of intensive mediumship training and inspiration. It was amazing. I already feel the growth and am channeling it into Dragonfly Healing Arts. The center expanded on April 1st. We now have a larger space to use as a classroom, yoga studio, retreat, and space for other group events. Yoga classes just started. I am looking for someone to teach Ti Chi. Durgha Ma, a shaktipat spiritual master, is giving a Natural Meditation retreat in early May.
Rita Berkowitz taught 2 amazing mediumship classes on the past two Saturdays, and has 3 more dates booked. I am inviting other experienced mediums to teach here. I traveled to England because I could not find the high quality advanced teaching for my mediumship and spiritual development that I was looking for, closer to home. My intent is to have Dragonfly Healing Arts provide a place to nurture the needs of developing mediums, at an affordable price, without having to travel so far. The center continues to offer support for other spiritual paths and healing.
Thank you for sharing in our adventurous journey.
With love and light,

Before: Sharon Farber graduated with honors from the University of Massachusetts in 1983 with a BA in Sociology. She worked as a case worker at the Department of Social Services in Charlotte, North Carolina and then directed a senior adult program for the New Jersey Y Camps. When that got old, she started researching massage schools.
Sharon graduated from the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy in 1989, and the Institute of Healing Arts and Sciences in 2001, and is a Reiki Master. She created Avon Massage Therapy Center which she owned for 18 years. She taught classes in massage and healing and facilitated a healing group. She is still a practicing massage therapist, healer and reflexologist.
Sharon discovered a passion for painting in 2004. She sold her massage practice in 2006 and went on to become an award winning artist. Her specialty has been realistic nature and wildlife landscapes. Now she is creating spiritual paintings that are filled with vibrant passion, light, and healing. These paintings represent the integration of Sharon’s healing, creativity and spirituality. Next step: spirit portraits! Maybe.
Sharon attended a group reading with a local medium in 2005 and was immediately fascinated with mediumship. She invited the medium to do monthly group readings at Avon Massage and was thrilled to attend each one. Sharon was impressed and inspired by the healing that took place as people were connected with their loved ones in spirit. In 2011 she massaged a man with chest pain, whose 11 year old daughter had died the year before. The specifics of her death left the parents devastated. The experience with this client left a large impression on Sharon who never stopped thinking about how healing it would be for these parents to have a session with a good medium. This was the catalyst for Sharon’s latest path, the development of her mediumship abilities.
