Speak Your Spark: Voice for passion & purpose
Speak Your Spark: Voice for passion and purpose, a 6-week online intensive, is the 9th module of an 11-part Sacred Story Telling program.
This workshop is committed to revealing your architecture as a creative, removing obstacles from your creative process, and providing access and avenues to amplify your gifts in the world.
How do you use your voice?
We’ll explore what stories live within us, what stories block us, or disrupt the flow of life from living through us. The focus of this SANCTUARY course will be on the third chakra: your throat.
What needs to be said that has gone unspoken? How will you use your voice to speak for the things you care about and want to protect? How will you use your voice to end the things that no longer serve you and those around you?
You are invited to play at the edges of what is familiar as you use your voice to speak about what matters most to you, and to share your voice with people in positions of authority and influence.
Our guest teachers will explore how to work with storytelling, expressing your voice on the stage, through song, and through other forms of expression.
What you'll discover
- A step-by-step process for clearing your channel and understanding your limiting and liberating thought patterns
- Core principles of creating prayers and blessings and how to integrate ritual into your creation process
- Earth-based practices for collaborating with the land as you create your intentions
- Meditations and prompts that open your creative channel
- Muse-invoking articles, podcasts, books, and music that will support you during this revelatory practice
- Systems to reveal and then play with the old stories, patterns, unconscious belief systems, and behaviors living between you and your activated Creator Matrix
- Rituals for cleansing and clearing, anointing, healing, forgiving, and addressing wounds within the masculine and feminine
- A supportive community that has gathered at a unique moment in time to focus on bringing their gifts (and yours) to the times we are living in

WEEK 1 - RECALIBRATE
Our journey lives inside of a wisdom story. In our first session you will be given a story. This mythic story will hold us and serve as our guide as we explore our unique archetypal role in creating and tending sanctuary on our planet.
You will be guided step-by-step through the Creator Matrix process, which will reveal the stories, conscious and subconscious, that influence how you are showing up as a creator and manifestor in the world. You will learn clearing and cleansing rituals that provide the structure to examine your energy and capacity to create.
WEEK 2 & 3 - REFLECT, RESTRUCTURE & RECREATE
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).
WEEK 4 & 5 - RELEASE & REDESIGN
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.
WEEK 6 - RECALIBRATE, REGENERATE & ALCHEMIZE
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 medicine 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.
Praise for Creative Intensive Courses
"Leah’s guidance is finally allowing me to find my true voice, which has transformed my life in ways I never thought imaginable. Through the lens of sacred storytelling and meditation, Leah approaches my chaotic thoughts with care and grace, creating a space that truly nurtures growth. She has a knack for spotting the gifts of others, and her methods are perfect for bringing out the unique potential in each of us. Aided by her consistent and stable anchor, I am gently pushed to succeed at forming real process and long lasting discipline. With Leah’s help, I’m finally learning how to flow with my creative life and connect to my muse in ways that are nothing short of magical...she is an absolute gift to this world and it is an honor to work with her. She has catalyzed me to find my own unique use of language and creative expression through storytelling.”
- Elora Lydia, Animator and storyteller.
"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."
- Devi W, Participant in Sanctuary
“I’ve learned with Leah that being a Sacred Storyteller is about so much more than telling stories well. It’s a way of Being in life—of being in service, available to the Divine, in the specific ways that are truest to our own natures. Leah is a masterful guide and a committed advocate for creators and for the Creator in us all and has taught me a new way of being in partnership with inspiration and wisdom. Speak the Spark has been an experience so much more profound than I expected. I’m so grateful for the gifts! “
