If you’re a mystic she might help you peer over the edge into an unfathomable chasm where you’ll meet your fear of that which could swallow you whole.  You might even see it’s teeth and smell its breath.  If you think you know exactly what you are doing and where you are going she will help you learn how to wander in the woods and get lost.  She’ll help you learn to listen to your inner wisdom and find your way to the pot of magical soup boiling on a warm hearth deep in the forest, where you can drink deeply of that which feeds the mysterious within that beckons the soul to grow.  She’ll also teach you how to open to the pleasure of transformation (who knew that a Spirit Tiger eating your intestines could be sexy?), and how to fake it till you are making it so you can keep your job that you hate as long as you need to, if need be.  AND, she’ll teach you how to do it all with gentleness and ease, one step at a time, and in a way that is true to your soul’s purpose, highest self, brightest dreams and deepest desires.12308822_10102128433419167_7914744076914818509_n Leigh is a licensed massage therapist, shamanic practitioner, Reiki Master and priestess.  She has painted her body with menstrual blood, run naked under the stars, howled at the moon, had ritual sex, danced ecstatically in circles of witches, prayed her heart out, cried her eyes out, and stared eye to eye with a coyote.  Leigh is also currently completing three years of back taxes and learning to make a master to-do list, making her the real deal.  Leigh’s hobbies include making funny faces and animal sounds with her friends, going out dancing, singing, absurd and dark humor and belly laughs.   healing helpSophia Wise One Wise-Woman.

Why We Teach This

Leigh: Before I learned to listen to the wisdom of my anger I would make choices to people-please rather than fulfill my own deep needs. I let people put me down without standing up for myself. When I was learning to create healthy boundaries I was often so angry that I communicated my boundaries with meanness rather than clarity and compassion. My voice used to feel trapped, like a lump in my throat. I’m deeply grateful to have found friends, teachers and tools that have helped me to free my voice, fully express myself, and stand up for myself with clarity and compassion. I now feel ease in finding what I want and need and create healthy, clear, compassionate boundaries in my relationships. I’m grateful for the ways in which anger teaches me to care for myself and be clear on what I can and cannot offer to others — in this way I am able to give to myself and others from a place of wholeness. Sophia: When I felt angry I would blame myself for everything that was “not right” and then I would self destruct. I would have total meltdowns of confusion, anxiety, and exhaustion: the kind of meltdowns that had high prices of loss of work, painful relationships, and physical back, leg, and neck pain. Now I am married to a person who loves and respects my passion and treasures my clear and compassionate communication. I use many methods to sort out confusion and what I want and need, and the difference between them. The most satisfying thing to me is – when I feel angry, instead of using self deprecation, I listen deeply and move into resolution and use that energy to create the outcomes I want in place of the outcomes that I do not want! YEAH!

FAQs

Do I have to yell the whole time? No! This space will be dynamic: from quiet space to speaking and listening and guttural yells. And you don’t even have to yell! (There will be ear plugs on hand too.) What if I get there and it’s too much for me? Our intention is to meet you where you are, and for you to do exactly the work that you can handle gracefully right now. You are wise, your mind and body know what to work on and play with, and while we’ll invite you to stretch beyond your comfort zone into the learning zone, you get to decide what to focus on and what may need more time before opening. You don’t need to do it all at once . . . healing and growth are are process. You’ll have the opportunity to take some big steps in the workshop and take home the tools to continue the process in a way that helps you be gentle with yourself. Sound Good?
