Difficulties encountered at an early age and later a disabling physical illness instilled in Leatrice a need for understanding . . . and Truth. This desire, to be in accord with reality, required unwavering dedication to the exploration of self. Staying the course through all that was stirred up along the way led to a penetrating understanding of the path of the human, how to change one’s relationship to physical and emotional pain; ultimately, to become Conscious of consciousness.
Leatrice Asher’s ability to work with individuals and communicate with the public has come from a combination of personal and professional experiences; including, 9 years residence in a Zen Buddhist community and writer, editor, director for The Word Foundation, publishers of Harold W. Percival’s Thinking and Destiny.
For over 40 years Leatrice has been offering, through her writings, her private practice, and in various group settings—drug and alcohol treatment facilities, yoga and health centers, hospice, medical groups— how to bring self-knowledge to our everyday lives and awaken to the Truth of our being.
