|Shalila Sharamon, born on July 24, 1948, was trained as a meditation teacher in 1972. She established and directed several meditation centers. In 1980 she began to study astrology and since 1992 she has specialized in Jyotish, the astrology of India. She combines her astrological knowledge with holistic personal and health counseling.

In 1984 Bodo J. Baginski and Shalila Sharamon came together through their common interest in natural, holistic healing. This was followed by a period of lecturing and holding seminars together and the establishment of a book store specialized in esoterica. In 1985, they published their first book, Reiki-Universal Life Energy, which received worldwide attention. Further books are The Chakra Handbook (translated into 20 languages), released with Lotus Press, and musical guided meditation such as Chakra Meditation together with Merlin's Magic. Their inspired works have appeared time and again in the specialized best-sellers lists, some of them for several years. Their publications have reached millions of people and have been translated into more than 20 languages.
