I was raised in Southern California. I graduated from UC Irvine where I worked for Atmospheric Photochemistry Nobel Laureate Dr. Mario Molina. I worked toward an MBA from Pepperdine University. My professional career has included entrepreneurship in data communications, VoIP and other hi-tech fields. Beginning in my teens, I've done meditation, therapies, psychoactive drugs, EST, athletics, breathwork, sexuality, regression, yogas and 11 trips to India. I was awakened by the grace of Sri AmmaBhagavan. I like kitesurfing, paragliding and many kinds of adventure travel. I lived in Laguna Beach for several decades, and am now renovating a home on Colorado's Western Slope. We explore new places on our sailing catamaran which we've moved from the Eastern Seaboard to the Pacific Northwest. My passion is helping people. My YouTube channel is available here. Some autobiographical writing is here.
Dr. Leigh Jacobs
Originally from a small town in Upstate NY, I relocated to California in 2007 to finish my doctorate studies in neuro-physiology, Chinese medicine and acupuncture. I also have degrees in Anthropology and Biology. I've had many different occupations ranging from delivering newspapers to practicing as a physician.
One of my true joys and passion is facilitating and sharing Presence with others through group processes. I have found that connecting through body centered awareness and authentic sharing to be the KEY to profound healing. It has indeed been a path home to the Divine for me personally.
My spiritual journey began at a very young age. I have many years experience with various meditation practices, chanting, breathwork, yoga, somatic experiencing, sexuality, bodywork and devotional life in India. I LOVE adventure, travel and anything to actively engage my body! That often includes, hiking, kite-surfing, swimming and recently scuba diving.
Through my understanding of the nervous system, cultural systems and my own continuing journey in Awakening, it is an honor to be of service to others wherever they are in their own journey.
