My name is LeAnne and above all else I am a seeker. I consider my true vocation is to live fully into the questions of life and use what I’ve learned to encourage, uplift and inspire others.
These inner explorations inevitably give rise to a desire for self expression, which for me has typically been through writing. When I hit my personal mid-life crisis and dark night of the soul, words failed. Turning to my camera, I discovered a new means of expressing myself, and how creative practices can aid in spiritual recovery. I experienced first hand how the images which attract our attention can reveal much about what wants come forward from our unconscious in order to be healed and understood.
Since that pivotal time in my life, I’ve come to believe that the divine creator speaks to us most often in the language of metaphor and symbol. Through our dreams, stories, myths, poetry, and intuitive creative practices such SoulCollage® we can receive guidance to help us in our daily lives.
Born in Atlanta, Georgia, I now live and work in middle Tennessee. I am a certified Spiritual Director through the Haden Institute program, which is deeply rooted in Jungian psychology and mystical Christian tradition. I am also a trained SoulCollage® facilitator, and will complete the Haden Institute Dream Leader certification program in early 2018. I hold a Bachelors degree in Liberal Studies, with an emphasis in psychology and sociology from Middle Tennessee State University.
I am a creative contemplative. If you are still reading this, there is a good chance you might be one, too.
