Life Coach Leslie
Life Coach Leslie has an absolute commitment to being in a place where she feels joyful and at peace and she does what that takes every single day, beginning each day...with a song, a walk or hike and appreciation of the natural environment. Life Coach Leslie says, I've learned to relish & savor & create positive experiences to be sure joy and that loving sense really happen first thing in the morning. It's my version of the new normal, or as mentors Hale Dwoskin & Jack Canfield say, ‘the new ordinary’.
Since I've made a decision to put positive things in bold so my senses all respond, I remove myself from the negative whether it be news broadcasts, disaster headlines, commercial media or grumpy people. I seek, then emphasize the positive flowing into my pores, registering deeply in mind/body/spirit & emotional memory. It's just a little thing I do and I recommend it. Think it, feel it, say it, do it & feel it some more! And, to my delight, what I've experienced is that as I'm doing this with regularity, I'm receiving more positive surprises and opportunities and meeting amazingly uplifting people.
My greatest pleasure is being of service, support, inspiration and motivation to you when you are ready to step out of the old, dis–heartening space you've been into the new possibilities. I love to receive support and I love to offer it. What's new for me is that I've even learned how to ask for it!

I'm excited to participate in creating a 60 foot diameter labyrinth which will be open 24/7 to provide a space where possibilities for peace and transformation are ever present. Providing this organized pathway where one can mindfully walk in safety while tuning into the guidance that is within is a high priority for ma and for our community at large.

Life Coach Leslie offers suggestions
One of the ways that's helped me stay in this space of feeling positive and hope filled is to find where this perspective is shared. Seeking people and organizations who are more interested in the solution than in the problem helped me gain clarity about where to put my focus and attention. Below is a starter list of organizations that are doing what I want to support. I feel uplifted to spread this information & enriched to know I'm helping too. Feel free to send me your good ideas and together we can grow this list.
World Wild Life Fund http://www.worldwildlife.org/
My father, the brilliant marine biologist, taught me about the wonder and diversity of life on Earth & how responsible we humans are to support/love/protect & maintain the health of ecological systems.
The Ocean Conservancy http://www.oceanconservancy.org/
My grandfather built a little cottage near the Pacific Ocean so I had the good fortune to be exposed early to the miracles of the sea. The Ocean Conservancy promotes healthy ocean ecosystems which my father taught me to appreciate and my mother modeled all her life exporting critters to safety and making it ‘cool’ to be the one who knew how to safely pick up the critter.
The Nature Conservancy http://www.nature.org/ didn’t yet exist when my parents were alive & I think they’d have loved the concept! It is committed to preserve plants, animals and ecosystems that represent the diversity of life by purchasing lands and waters needed for species’ survival.
The Pachamama Alliance http://www.pachamama.org/
In this alliance, the focus is on the indigenous people being empowered to preserve the Earth's tropical rain forests. Empowering others to get where they're going is the number one joy of Life Coach Leslie so this is a perfect match with my philosophy.
Doctors Without Borders http://www.doctorswithoutborders.org/
An international independent medical humanitarian organization providing emergency aid where needed.
