Welcome into the Story Sanctuary: A community that honors the sacred art of storytelling:
I’ve had the privilege of holding the reins of an online community that has been gathering from around the globe to honor, heal, and transform the stories of our time, while learning about how the stories of our time are being lived through us.
What I have witnessed, is that our community is unique in that there is a commitment to see the greatness in each other, to foster a place where dignity and valuing different perspectives and world views thrives, and where we walk away having celebrated and shared some of the most ancient practices that all cultures share: storytelling, listening, and singing.

WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING...
"Nothing could have prepared me for the immensity or inner treasures unearthed during Sanctuary. I only knew my soul was calling from the desert, aching to be known and its secrets to be unleashed. I do not consider myself a storyteller nor came to tell stories. Medicine is what I needed. The kind you find in sacred arts, rituals, symbols and in the sacred mother of life.
The journey weaved together the scattered parts, the preciousness and beauty surrounding me, and the soul crafting needed to claim the truth of my existence.
Leah masterfully guides the birthing of what has been calling you."
