I am very grateful to have been in Leo’s class. It’s an honor and a privilege to have him as a teacher.
He taught me to be patient with myself and others. This class has transformed me into a better ME. The awareness of the breath and the stillness has taught me in the midst of the chaos you can still have your peace…All the epiphanies week after week have been so amazing and now I have the tools to continue on my journey.Jazmine S.
To fully describe what is so special about Leo and the meditation series that he leads is much like trying to describe the indescribable. His ability to create warmth and acceptance within a space for people of various backgrounds to gather is remarkable.
Leo, himself, embodies an unconditionally kind and gentle spirit that emanates beyond him to fill the space that he occupies.
Although meditation effectively alleviates stress and promotes inner peace, Leo is the catalyst to that endpoint within our gatherings.
As a well respected university professor, he is committed to higher levels of understanding. He is soft spoken, loving, intelligent and often very funny. Just sharing a laugh with him is time well spent.
He is a terrific storyteller and an excellent communicator with a truly gifted ability to guide others in meditation. He is fully present whenever we gather and somehow time magically stops as we sit together in meditation. It is a genuinely wonderful experience.
To know Leo, is to love him, and what he does is simply amazing.”Helene Domaski
