Both Leslie’s grandmother and mother spent time in residential schools, giving her intergenerational understanding and empathy for the issues in First Nations Communities today. Leslie is a facilitator/trainer, keynote speaker and licensed coach who operates her business from Vernon, BC. She is a certified Nonviolent Communication Trainer and licensed Louise Hay teacher. Her work has taken Leslie by plane, boat and automobile to many remote communities across Canada. Over the years Leslie has been invited to return to communities she has worked in many times over, which speaks to her ability to create a safe and comfortable environment for participants to do the work they long to do in order to transform their lives.
There have been many wonderful teachers who have influenced the teachings Leslie offers. This list includes Wayne Dyer, Marianne Williamson, Cheryl Richardson, Louise Hay, Ainslie MacLeod, Marshall Rosenberg, Don Miguel Ruiz, and Abraham (Ester Hicks).
Leslie has received formal contemporary training from the Counsellor Training Institute, Vancouver Community College, Round Lake Treatment Centre (training in the field of addiction), The Justice Institute, Nonviolent Communication Organization and Heart Inspired Presentations—the only training organization that has been licensed and approved by Louise Hay to provide training in her Heal Your Life® work.
Leslie Williamson is authorized by exclusive license with Hay House Inc. to teach Louise Hay’s workshop—You Can Heal Your Life®. This training is based on the philosophies of Louise Hay, who created and taught these teachings for decades and has since passed on the honour to teach and license teachers to Patricia Crane and Rick Nichols. You can find Patricia and Rick at Heart Inspired Presentations, LLC. (heartinspired.com).
Leslie’s roots are founded in her First Nations culture that teaches our connection to spirit and the understanding that we are all one. When one lives with this consciousness there is no separation from anyone or anything.
Leslie’s commitment to the work is to continue to be open to change and transformation within her own life. Each year she takes time out to sit as a student under amazing and beautiful teachers who are here today to assist us with growth and our soul’s evolution. She remains humbled and honoured to spend time with each person who chooses to attend her workshops.
