THE LEELA SCHOOL OF AWAKENING:
One of the roles that I am currently taking on is as a teacher and mentor with The Leela School of Awakening—the school that has arisen out of the teachings of one of my core spiritual teachers, Eli Jaxon-Bear. The mission statement of Eli's foundation, The Leela Foundation, is: Dedicated to world peace and freedom through universal self-realisation. The mission statement of The Leela School is: Serving the World as a True Friend.
I said 'Yes' to Eli in late 2015, and since then I have learned the skills that are offered by The Leela School, started practising them, and now I am teaching these skills and mentoring students. I have now taught the skills (along with Lisa, Jared, and Grace, the other Leela School teacher and mentors) to eight separate cohorts of students on three continents over the past three years. It has been a baptism of fire, it has been hard work, and it has been amazing.
One of the outcomes of this intensive 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 guidance. This feels like the natural arising to be in service to the world waking up that is an effect of discovering my true nature in myself. Becoming an Awakening Guide is the best description I have personally found so far for what is on offer through The Leela School: www.leelaschool.org.
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.
