Lisa Schumacher is a teacher at the Leela School of Awakening, founded by Eli Jaxon-Bear.. Upon completion of the required curriculum for certification as a Leela Therapist, Lisa began a private practice in 2006. That same year she was asked by Gangaji to hold Satsang.
Lisa is available for one on one sessions to support and serve you in your commitment to awakening.
In each meeting you will have her full attention and experience of over 20 years in the presence of her master, Gangaji and intensive training in the Enneagram and skillful means taught to her by Eli.
I thought I'd surrendered myself to Love, but painful patterns kept repeating themselves in my life. In my fierce determination to be free, I sought Lisa's assistance. She has a laser like focus that sees right through my games of avoidance and distraction, she leaves me nowhere to hide. With Lisa's guidance I was finally able to meet my demons of self hatred and shame, throw myself into the fire, and completely and utterly surrender on every level of my being. Since that experience my life has been filled with a delightful sense of peace, and at long last, for the first time in my life, I am overflowing with self love. My heart swells with this sweet scented Love, and effortlessly radiates out into the world. Those old patterns have lost their power and appeal. They've become empty shells, a waste of time and energy, as I now feel true intoxicating Love and fulfillment. There are no words to adequately describe the depth of my gratitude to Lisa for supporting me in my desire for freedom.

Lisa is a true doorway to silence. In my first session with her, I was greeted with a presence that had no agenda other than allowing a space of what needed to be uncovered and to be revealed. This is a rare opportunity for one who is ready to wake up and to face their particular fixation with suffering. With this willingness, we clearly see what has unconsciously, habitually been running; and with Lisa’s guidance, we see the futility of our story and our manic effort to justify it or even prolong it. In this discovery, we find freedom. Lisa’s silent attention and objective wisdom holds a sacred space for pointing to this depth of true and lasting stillness. There is no gift more valuable than this.
Clarity and peace are enhanced from the moment my decision to schedule a session with Lisa is made. I am reminded who I am and I begin to lay the burden of a very noisy, confused mind down. When Lisa’s face appears on the screen, or as I sit in front of Lisa, I can’t help but smile at the clarity, wisdom, innocence, acceptance and love I see. I know at the deepest level that I am in good hands. My longing for peace and an end to the misery of life in my mind is met. Lisa’s direct and at the same time gentle guidance removes the mis - identification and I am reacquainted with my love for the truth of who I am. The session flows and unfolds without apparent direction and ends with me feeling at home, in peace, in silence, surrendered to the wisdom of the universe and so grateful for a blessed life. I am so lucky to know Lisa.
Your presence and love is worth more than you could ever imagine. Something was lifted and I am back in alignment: light, smiling and at peace. And I am not afraid, not a victim."
