Leatrice’s desire to be in accord with reality required unwavering dedication to the exploration of Self. This desire was initially spurred from acute childhood difficulties. Thirty years of chronic neurological Lyme Disease has also contributed greatly to Leatrice’s understanding of physical and emotional pain, and how to transform it. This led to a penetrating understanding of the path of the human; ultimately, to become consciously aware of Consciousness.
Leatrice’s ability to work with individuals and communicate with the public has come from a combination of personal and professional experiences. For over 40 years, her offerings have been through writing (many articles have been published in metaphysical/spiritual magazines – see Published Articles), her early private practice, study groups, and teaching meditation and pain transformation at various health facilities.
Her earliest counseling experience was in San Francisco working with incarcerated juvenile girls. She was later employed as a social worker for those with physical or mental disabilities. In Philadelphia, Leatrice was a counselor and meditation teacher at Malvern Institute, a drug and alcohol treatment facility. Her workshops have been offered in health facilities in New York where she was also involved with various hospice centers.
In 1972, Leatrice received lay ordination at San Francisco Zen Center and lived at Green Gulch Farm Zen Center for over 8 years. Later, she was a director, writer, and editor for The Word Foundation, publishers of Harold Percival’s works. The emphasis of her work is on how to bring Self-Knowledge to our everyday lives and awaken to the Truth of our being.
Conscious awareness of Consciousness is everything that has ever happened or will happen present in this very instant. It is the ordinary, extraordinary, ordinary, extraordinary, ordinary. . . It is the extraordinary ordinary. LA
