THE Best experience ever! Started me on my path to the awesome guy I am now.Marcus, Michigan

"I love running into Viva Institute alums all over the country! I recently attended a workshop in Maui, and on the first day of class, I turned to the person to my right to introduce myself, before I could ask her name, she excitedly blurted out, “Bernadette, you’re the reason I’m here - I was in your Viva Institute class!”  So in a room of about 500 people I just happened to sit next to my Viva Institute alumni! Thank you for bringing us all together in such a loving, supportive, mystical, beautiful and educational environment. I am so happy my path led me to you!”Bernadette, Washington, DC
I’d studied with Leigh before and found her as kind and compassionate as she is industrious, witty, and gifted at bringing out the best in everyone around her. Interesting, thoughtfully-planned lessons led to assignments that hardly felt like work at all. As I participated, it was fascinating to discover not only that my story had a way of telling itself and I was just its ‘keeper,’ but that my voice seemed to simply be awaiting my call for it to venture out. I was truly surprised at just how uplifted and inspired I felt receiving the positive, helpful comments and feedback – and respond with a very heartfelt thank you.Kelly, Minnesota
"I am so so happy that I decided to take this course. Viva puts on a friendly, professional course that helps you with writing, making it better than ever. We also critique each other's work, which helps us grow as a writer and a communicator. Very helpful, It helped me grow in ways that I never expected, such as everyday communications with others. Leigh Hopkins is a kind, gentle, sensitive, and very capable individual with high credentials of her own. Great course, and I look forward to taking more Transformative Storytelling courses offered by Viva. You absolutely won't be disappointed, take the course!"Betty, Colorado
"I was so surprised by the way this course's syllabus lined up so synchronistically with my own personal life lessons/journeys. Especially the lessons on timing, precognition, past lives and psychic tools. It was as if this was exactly what I needed, this course served as the answers to the "why" about all the situations/experiences currently in my life."Lanham, Maryland
