I kept noticing how many incredibly talented and gifted people around me are forging new paths, and how much energy it takes to initiate projects, how much energy it takes to be at the front and leading a project, and how much energy it takes to complete a project. And we simply can’t do it alone.
And then there is this: We are living in quickly changing times; scarcity and fear are filling the airwaves, and the people around us. It is simply harder to find people who know how to support people like us: creatives, dreamers, imaginaries…we see something that hasn’t been created yet…and feel compelled to do it.
As someone who has brought many projects to the finish line, and grieved those that died before making it to the finish line, I have intimate lived experience of what it takes to bring a vision to fruition, and that this is an initiatory process.
Now I’m going to share part of my bio in 3rd person because sometimes it’s just easier that way:
Leah’s commitment to the environment has been expressed as an ocean advocate, writing and producing award winning PSA’s on taking action to protect our planet, consulting on communications for The Pachamama Alliance, giving activists a voice in the media while hosting the green channel at Al Gore’s Television Network, covering the UN Climate Talks in Paris, and was the Arts consultant to the National Coalition for Dialogue & Deliberation.
Her commitment to working with story as a tool for social change was developed while working with Active Voice, where she developed the strategies and implemented engagement campaigns led by The Fetzer Foundation and Participant Productions.
A lifelong learner, she has studied with many of the great storytellers of our time including Martin Shaw, Caroline Casey, and attended The 13 Moon Mystery School and The Orphan Wisdom School. Her greatest teacher of story has been a long tale called The Whale Dreamer, her commitment to this story has taken her to the edges of the earth and back.
Her writing has been featured in Fast Company, Spirituality & Health Magazine, and National Geographic News Watch. She has spoken about and taught about storytelling as a sacred art at Google, Hollyhock, a variety of retreats, and continues to produce storytelling events and tour Story Ceremonies across the country.
