"Leah lives in story, it resonates in her being – as a teller, as a writer/thinker, as an activist/world changer, as a contemporary artist rooted in the ancient. She knows the alchemy of myth and the miracle of life, and the tangible magic of language performed."
~Joe Lambert, Founder of Center for Digital Storytelling
"I recieved so much from Leah's course. There was a safe and rich space created to get to know the others in the group, and for each of us to unfold in our own way. I also came away with a clearer sense of my "medicine", that is, what I uniquely have to offer the world at this time. Leah is a big hearted, compassionate facilitator with a depth of knowledge, and is highly skilled at facilitating safety and opening of doors that are ready to open."
~Carrie Katz, songwriter and co-founder of Edwardian Ball

"I've been walking with a heavy story, in bewilderment of how to relate to it, what to do with it, carrying a sense that it has relationship to a universal human story but not knowing where to begin. Leah helped me spell out the pieces through feeling ALIVE in the story, honoring it, bringing intention to the craft of it, and allowing it to reveal itself to us. I feel like dignity has been brought to my role in these painful stories, and I feel empowered to live in them with awareness and choice. " ~Kait Singley

Leah's work is an imperative service to the great turning of our world and culture, and her devotion to the mystery invites all that work with her to step into their unique embodied expression of medicine and purpose...

"I wanted an adventure with others crafting the art and narrative of their lives. I wanted a setting and community to explore my inner, outer, creative, expressive self in hopes to live the story of my life more richly and enjoy the stories of others. I didn't know what to expect... I got to enjoy all that -- an epic adventure; a beautiful, talented, and generous community; Leah's medicine and soul offerings -- and because of the workshop, I feel more resourced to live my life, my medicine, my stories more enthusiastically and full-heartedly." ~Wendy Buffet, MD
"If a nation loses its storytellers, it loses its childhood."
