Venus Wisdom & Love Stories
with Guest Teacher Sasha Benedetti
“Your task is not to seek for love,
but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself
that you have built against it.”
Story is a powerful tool for healing and transformation
So let us bring a sense of wonder to those tender parts of our hearts as we open to the heavens to guide us to reflect on our love lives, and relationship to Love itself.
When we engage story as a sacred tool
and a doorway to a relationship with the divine,
we can come into relationship with the unseen realms where we can access untapped wisdom, clarity, and a depth of understanding we can't always access through a linnear approach.
When we release our old story, there is an opportunity to set the stage for a new pattern and even to play a new role in your love story.
This course engages a 3-part practice that involves healing unresolved wounds, working with ritual to address and transform patterns that are ready to release, and embody the archetypal energies we most want to love from.

SO LET'S STEP INTO SACRED PLAY WITH YOUR LOVE STORIES.
Week 1: The Mystic
We will enter the journey through a Soul Story divined for our collective that holds the language of myth, metaphor, symbol, and archetype. This mystical story will serve as a mirror for us to explore what is alive and living in each of our unique and connected consciousness.
Then we will dive into your most unresolved love stories, these may involve stories of longing, loss, betrayal, love lost, or feeling incomplete or unsatisfied in our current love relationships. You will enter a process where you will tell your story in that way for the last time as you prepare for a transformational process. You will be given rituals to engage to support your journey.
Week 2: The Magic
You will be guided through a meditative alchemical creative process into the mythic imagination where you will gather what can’t be seen or understood as you prepare to rewrite your story. You will be invited to develop an altar and personalized ritual based on what you discover to support your integration process.
Week 3: The Medicine
Return from the mythic realms to create a new version of your story that integrates the medicine, gems, and wisdom harvested along the way. Learn how to develop a story ceremony with your beloveds and friends as you prepare to live your new love story.
Week 4: The New Mythos
Our class will culminate with a story ceremony. Be witnessed in the embodiment of your new love story.
TOGETHER WE WILL IDENTIFY THE PARTS OF THE STORIES
THAT ARE ASKING TO BE TRANSFORMED

ONLINE CLASS TESTIMONIALS
I just finished Leah's "Love Medicine" class and have done several of her free webinars over the past couple of years. I feel honored by the opportunity to work with such an inspired and dedicated teacher. Her approach is transformative and therapeutic. She accomplishes a magical and seemingly impossible feat of facilitation: creating a safe and yet dangerously edgy container for deep exploration and shared reflection. She is a blessing and a treasure.
"My experience of learning about story with Leah was transformative. I have been struggling for some time with finding my voice and therefore finding my power... My voice got lost in the shuffle of all the hustle of life. I always felt pulled away by what I ‘should’ be doing rather than listening to the wisdom within. But Leah’s course showed up in my life and it has shifted me in a very powerful way. I was able to learn new skills (like working with myth) with ease and flow. But most importantly I was able to work with my own real life story in an empowered way that helped me bring closure to an old trauma I had suppressed for years. If I had to do it over, I would choose this course a thousand times over and over again!"
Lashanda Brown Sell, PhD
“I’ve been walking with a heavy story, in bewilderment of how to relate to it, what to do with it, carrying a sense that it has relationship to a universal human story but not knowing where to begin. Leah helped me spell out the pieces through feeling ALIVE in the story, honoring it, bringing intention to the craft of it, and allowing it to reveal itself to us. I feel like dignity has been brought to my role in these painful stories, and I feel empowered to live in them with awareness and choice. What a healing!”
“This workshop was just the special sauce that I needed. Leah’s process is gentle, intuitive, fun and powerful. She has a wonderful and truly transformative ability to support people in moving people through stuck places and into clear alignment with their own inner wisdom.”
WE THINK WE TELL STORIES, BUT STORIES OFTEN TELL US:
TELL US TO LOVE OR HATE, TO SEE OR BE SEEN. OFTEN, TOO OFTEN, STORIES SADDLE US, RIDE US, WHIP US ONWARD, TELL US WHAT TO DO, AND WE DO IT WITHOUT QUESTIONING. THE TASK OF LEARNING TO BE FREE REQUIRES LEARNING TO HEAR THEM, TO QUESTION THEM, TO PAUSE AND HEAR SILENCE, TO NAME THEM, AND THEN BECOME A STORY-TELLER.

Soul Story Session Testimonials
“My Soul Story has stayed with me deeply in the months since Leah shared it with me. The story uncannily charted the hills and valleys of my unconscious terrain, revealing to me some of the deepest truths of my highest Self and reminding me that I intuitively know how best to live my life. The characters and images in the story helped me to understand the deeper truth of the circumstances of my life in a way that only metaphor and narrative can. The story affirmed - so beautifully - that I already have the knowledge and the power to realize all that I want to welcome into my life and that I am on exactly the right path. ”
“Receiving a Soul Story from Leah is like receiving an ancient future treasure, designed just for you by God. It is a gift that continues to open you, surprise you, guide and heal you. Leah is a masterful storyteller channeling from the vast mystery of life itself. It’s uncanny how accurate and aligned her intuited symbols are from your mythic realm. You will be astounded. I feel incredibly blessed to receive of her sacred gifts and mentorship. She’s an extraordinary teacher for our age. So grateful and lucky that she is one of mine.”
