"Following my work with Leigh, I was surprised to discover that everything that I am doing, every conversation I have, every book I read, every person I encounter has a connection to my ultimate goal; the big picture. Leigh helped me to realize this. Every single thing in life is significant. Sometimes we are blind to these tiny yet important details. Leigh brought the importance of these instances into perspective...

..when working with Leigh, I didn't expect to have such personalized attention and a detailed plan with step-by-step information to help me achieve my goals. I have just successfully launched a website that contains my spiritual-based artwork. I received an offer to have a solo exhibition of my work, and the exhibition proved to be very fruitful!

I would recommend one-on-one instruction with Leigh if you feel stuck and are unsure about what direction you need to move in; if you have many ideas but need help organizing them and coming up with a plan of action; or if you feel as if you need a new perspective on what your life purpose is about."

"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
“Working one-on-one with Leigh allowed me to refine my gifts, remove blocks that were holding me back, and fully embrace what I love to do.”Karen Ritsche, Minnesota, Owner, Starlite Crystals and Reiki
“I was profoundly changed through my experience working with Leigh. Doors I never knew existed were opened and life’s been an amazing ride since then!”Ruth Hannigan, New Jersey
