3rd Chakra: Remove Blocks To The Expression of Personal Power

This course is focused on working with the creative process and sacred storytelling as tools to remove stuck energy living in the 3rd chakra, also know as Manipura, “lustrous gem.”

The 3rd chakra is akin to the sun, radiating through the center of our body.

How energy moves through this chakra influences our action, will, vitality and sense of personal power.

On the physical plane, the manipura chakra rules metabolism, the process whereby we turn food (energy) into action. We will be working with the stories that have gotten in the way of the fullest most embodied expression of your life force.

You will be invited to delight in poetry, movement, storytelling, and other creative exercises as you gain more and more access as it runs through all aspects of your life.

Imagine if Marie Kondo met The Artists Way...

...and you will catch the scent of the essence of this course.

As you are guided through a process of developing ways of creating Sanctuary in your home,

you will lao be guided through ways of liberating and expressing your creativity in the most unexpected of ways....


Now more than ever, we need Sanctuary.


A territory where our fullest emergence has a place to arrive.

Where we can align with the truth of who we are and the divine creative life force available to us.

We’ll explore your relationship to how your creativity and power have been defined by your surroundings as we make our way to the expression of your true essence.

We’ll listen for the stories that yearn to be expressed, shared, healed, and liberated as you you transform blocks and barriers through creative expression. 


What Gifts and Shadows are Living in Your 3rd chakra?

What stories about how you express your power are jamming your psychic space -- blocking the fullest expression of your life force? What stories are you unconsciously projecting about your unprocessed internal belief systems?

All along the way we will engage creative practices, rituals, and storytelling to transmute and transform these energies as we prepare to emerge to tell a new story.

We complete ready to SHINE: Alive and Activated In Your Power, Purpose, and Presence, as you share the gems we discovered through the this journey through your sacred stories.

Testimonals From Past Students

"The Power and Purpose course was an initiation. Old stories revealed, transformed and blossomed into magical stories of Sovereignty, Power and Love.
I graduated this course with a deep clarity and understanding of my Purpose, the Power of my Spirit, and the Power of Love in my life. Leah is a highly connected Muse herself, leading us all through our own sacred journeys and discoveries, in a gentle and graceful manner."

“The course initiated a process in me that I feel will continue long after the course is done. It offered me a sense of awareness of the subtle workings of the heart soul body.”


"An inspirational journey into ourselves through story and myth, into the deepest parts of ourselves. What revealed was the beauty, depth, and breath of who we truly are-- in a warm and supportive community of others... Inspirational, deep, moving, full of love, healing, and powerful!!"

-Karianna Rosenberg

“A whole new portal of inspiration”

-Jocelyne Marechal


Our journey lives inside of a big story. We will create our agreements for how to live and create in a space that fosters authentic expression. You will be led through a process of mapping your largest story as we go on a mission to find the blocks & barriers.

You will learn clearing and cleansing rituals that provide the structure to examine your energy and capacity to create.


As you recreate your space, you will step onto the path of the temple keeper. You will learn practices to bless and prepare your sacred space and how to listen to your own inner wisdom on how to do this. You will generate earth-based rituals to meet each barrier and block you identify (forgiveness of self and others, healing your relationship with the sacred masculine and feminine, or other challenges you face).


As you release and compost the barriers you are working with, you will free up more energy to catalyze the gifts you came to give. All along the way you will re-story your life through individualized assignments, you will work with story as a healing modality to address your unique discoveries.


Our course will culminate in your designing and building the Altar of Your Becoming in your sacred space. You will present one of the transformational stories you created over the span of our time together. You will leave understanding your unique Creator Matrix, the gifts and the challenges your Matrix presents, and your Creator Archetype.

Your Guide - Leah Lamb

Leah Lamb learned about how stories could be allies and friends when she was a child wandering the fields, creeks, and ponds of a rural farm in Vermont. Her first loves were writing and theater. Leah experienced first-hand how stories can unite when her play about suicide, “Berries,” was produced by VA Young Writers for The Theater. She went on to study the Eric Morris technique and the Meisner Technique at the Neighborhood Playhouse in New York City and interned at Williamstown Theatre Festival.

Her love of the environment led her to study at Prescott College, where she earned a double major in outdoor experiential education and environmental education through performance. After she worked with youth at risk for many years as a wilderness guide with Outward Bound and other programs, her commitment to social justice led her to earn a master’s degree in social work from Virginia Commonwealth University.
