Echo and Leigh are both compassionate, practical, and up front honest. They work with integrity and will truly try to teach you. If you have psychic gifts and want to learn more about them, how to live with them, how to protect yourself, and essentially, just move forward spiritually, you can be comfortable here. It is safe, welcoming, and so so much fun!Audrey, Ohio
This has been an amazing experience for me! I have learned so much about myself and my abilities. When I signed up for the level Psychic Development for Beginners class, I wasn't sure if I was psychic at all, much less "psychic enough." Since then I have progressed through the advanced class and am currently in a mentoring group. Because of the assignments and work we do and the interaction and feedback from classmates and instructors, my gifts have really opened up and expanded in very exciting ways. Love you, Leigh and Echo! Thank you for making training like this available!!Sheryl, Texas
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
