Format: Paperback
In "That Which Awakens Me," Leeke bravely and fearlessly takes the reader on a journey through time, around the world, and into her heart. Leeke reveals not only milestones and insights along the way, but lends the reader a gentle roadmap of their own. Using powerful images and sometimes difficult truths, Leeke confronts and embraces all aspects of her self with compassion and grace. The author's compassion, playfulness, wit, and insight combined with her love for the language and ear for the lyrical make this a joyful read.

Format: Paperback
Even before you get into the core of "That Which Awakens Me," you discover that this is more than a memoir, but a how to of sorts, with the lead guidance of being grateful to all your resources -- ancestral and internal, external and created. This is a book with much song -- with mantras and lyrical poetry: "i come back to words. they marry art and give birth to songs i sing only when i am alone and the angels hear me....when i am long gone, those who discover them will know i walked the earth.....and later made room in the sky for mother moon." And it is the presence of the moon in this book -- with its feminine iconography, its shadow side, its gravitation pull -- which invites the reader to integrate the dark and light in her own life into something powerful enough to create tides of immense force and joy. Leeke the writer allows us full access into her intimate process, and then Leeke the teacher shows us how to weave our own intricate patterns of life to wrap around our shoulders on cloudy days.
