THE LEELA SCHOOL
One of the directions that life is currently taking me, is the movement to become what I feel is best described as an awakening guide.
The Leela School—the school that has arisen around one of my core spiritual teachers, Eli Jaxon-Bear, and his teachings—has picked me up this year, and it has me by the throat; I am at its mercy . . . joyfully.
I said 'Yes' to Eli just over 18 months ago, and since then I have learned the the skills that are offered by The Leela School, started practising them, started offering sessions, as well as started teaching the skills—the first time I taught was at the first Australian Leela School retreat in Byron Bay in July 2016. I have now taught the skills (along with Lisa, Jared, and Grace: the other Leela School teacher and mentors) to five separate cohorts of students on three continents. It has been a baptism of fire, it has been hard work, and it has been amazing. I can't express how grateful I am, and how blessed I feel, to have been given this opportunity, and this sacred role and responsibility, by Eli; it is beyond words.
So, one of the outcomes of this intensive 18 month initiation is that I now feel able to offer sessions for anyone who is on the spiritual path, and who feels stuck or in need of some guidance in any way. The bigger picture behind this movement to become and awakening guide is the natural arising to be in service to the world waking up that is an effect of discovering my true nature, my True Self.
The mission statement of The Leela Foundation in one sentence is: Dedicated to world peace and freedom through universal self-realisation. For The Leela School it is: Waking up from the trance of suffering. Becoming an Awakening Guide is the best description I have found so far for what is on offer through The Leela School.
Generally in a private session we meet via Skype or Zoom—although in-person is best if you live in Sydney, or in one of the places where I travel to with The Leela school—for 60-90 minutes. Some sessions, however, can go for as long as three hours.
