"We are an infinite self in finite form."

-Jean Houston

"Unless we really return to the feminine wisdom and marry the profound feminine knowledge and wisdom and passion and concern for all forms of life with what you might call the masculine gifts of precision and order and clarity and brilliant intellect and real focused action in the world, we’re simply not going to survive."

-Andrew Harvey

"Painting is just another way of keeping a diary."

-Pablo Picasso.

Body awareness and healing through a balance of commitment and the willingness to let go are important aspects of their performance art as an Aerialist and Fire dancer.  Through their exploration and practice of sacred sexuality/Tantra, Leslie has experienced deep healing and release on a personal level and is called to share this path of potential with others. Leslie is trained as Priestess of the Ancient Temple Arts including sacred sexual healing and emotional release and holds a Certificate from International School of Temple Arts (ISTA).  Additionally, they are an RYT-200 Certified Yoga Instructor, and Reiki Master.  Leslie’s personal path and work has been the integration of the ever-unfolding feminine in body and psyche with masculine direction and purpose- Love in action!
