Living a Good Life

Foundational keys that lead to
greater joy, peace and fulfillment

Cut Through the Blah Blah Blah 

There is a lot of blah blah blah out there. Every day we’re being bombarded with stories about mindfulness, happiness quotient, emotional intelligence, meditation and more. After a while all the information becomes too much. There’s so much to choose from it’s often hard to know where to start.

That is where the Living by Design School comes in.

I have turned my lifetime of experience, plus my more than 35 years of professional career, into an experiential, useful program. Let me help you cut through the enormous amount of information into what is grounded, practical, and transformative.

The Living by Design School teaches practical, useful, life skills to support your learning, growth and personal evolution, while creating a life you love. You will learn what is necessary to practice the art of living a good life, so that you can lead a happier, less anxious, more peaceful and fulfilled life.

Whatever is going on in your life — whether you are entering a period of transition, want to improve your relationships, or are stuck in a rut — we’ll work collaboratively to enact changes that will lessen your suffering and increase your enjoyment of life.

Add-on bonus — the investment is actionably affordable (as in, it is easy to say YES).  

The First Module: Living a Good Life

The first module of Living by Design School is called Living a Good Life. We will look at (this and more) how to live a life that is good and what that means.

(Hint: it doesn’t mean caring about what other people think of us, having more money that anyone else, or a job people will envy, or weighing a certain weight or looking a certain way, being married or being divorced.)

It DOES means taking care of you and caring for others, not hurting you and not hurting others, and using life as an opportunity to learn, grow, lift and contribute.

In this course you will learn foundation keys to living a good life, from the inside out. These basic principles are practices to be incorporated into your daily living. As you become more intimate with these teachings through practice, you will find yourself and your life transformed.

Each month we will be working with a different principle for living. You will be encouraged to explore and experiment with this practical, useful actionable information. Suggestions will be made and you are encouraged to be inventive as you apply this information to your life.

There will be a learning portal which will host the written materials, audios and videos designed to support you throughout the program. There will also be a private place for discussion amongst the group. In this place you can post questions, ask for help, share wins.

Every other week there will be a live 1½ hour call. New material will be presented, as well as exercises and guided mediations designed for you to experience the material. There will be time for questions. This is a great place to get 1:1 live coaching.

If you cannot make the live calls the recording will be posted at the Living by Design School platform along with the other support materials.

At the end of the program there will be an optional day-long event, limited to 12 people, that will make the material even more accessible and useful.

Core practices

your life


Develop a creative relationship to life. Rather than reacting as a victim, learn to respond and lift up into your creative, spiritual intelligence. Source from peace and engage with wisdom. 


Learn foundation keys to living a good life, from the inside out. These ground rules are practices to be incorporated into your daily living. As you become habituated to these core practices, you will find yourself and your life transformed.


Living life to the fullest is a process of learning and discovery. The power of community, coming together in a learning program with other participants, creates a place of support and inspiration. 


Studies show that people who exercise in groups more likely stay with their work out. The same is true for group learning. If you really want to follow through in becoming the person you want to be and living the life you love, the probability of success goes up dramatically when you commit to change as part of a group.


Let go of struggle, stress and urgency. Discover flow in action. Experience higher levels of productivity with more ease. Live more in peace, loving, caring and sharing. Use everything for your learning, growth and upliftment. Partner with life on life’s terms and win. Go beyond anything you imagined was possible — up until now. Live by design.

I can’t tell you how much I benefited from and enjoyed this living by design course. For me it was a very effective teaching/learning tool.

The course was very cost effective. Perhaps you should increase the price. It waived me six months of private consultations. The time and expense it would have taken for me to learn the material through individual sessions would have been extensive.

There is no question that the material is valuable beyond the price asked.

Consider This

You get it — working 1:1 with a mentor is good stuff. You know finding a skilled person who has a track record is worth the investment. You know the value of transformational skilled coaching and at the mo’ you are not wanting to invest at that level. Right now it is not in the budget.

You now have an opportunity to grow yourself into next through the Living by Design School in an accessible, actionably affordable way.

The Living by Design School as a structure to use to grow yourself into the next best version of yourself, while creating a life you love, with expert guidance and support.

I have combined all of my mentoring, counseling, coaching and teaching experience (more than 35 years) into the Living by Design School.

You can receive more than you can even imagine, such as personalized coaching, learning from your peers, useful, practical, applicable course information, while being part of an engaged community — at a price actionably affordable.

 I like those words … actionably affordable — meaning
you can do this — if you consider YOU worth the investment.

I loved the LIVE calls. I felt connected to the group and engaged. I found over time I began to feel part of something bigger. The group support was terrific.

I don’t feel alone in my desire to change and the ways I have kept myself stuck. The private discussion group page and hearing others on the call really made me feel connected and inspired. I have put my goals out to the group and I know that there is energetic support in that.

Leslie is very generous with her attention to each individual. The resources she supplied us were extremely valuable. Her presence on the private group page encouraged me to post so I could receive her input.

Leslie, you have an amazing sense of humor, great insight as far as how the mind works, how we trick ourselves, talk to ourselves, talk ourselves out of things, etc. You share yourself personally and that encourages others to share.

In terms of the class you are very well prepared, have lots of tools for us, handouts and all of that stuff for me, lets me know that you really care about this class, not only it’s success for you, but for all of us. You are so conscientious about all of it. You are anyway, but I’m touched by the effort and follow through that is happening because of you in this class.

Day-Long Retreat – Saturday, June 9, 2018

This is an optional add-on to the Living a Good Life module.

In a world where there is so much so called connection through technology we will gather live and in person and take the material even deeper. You will be guided to mingle, reveal meaningful things to one another, play, be in nature, share a meal and more. It is impossible to leave the day without growing closer to yourself and to those with whom you share the day. BreathWork will be included. Space for the day-long event is limited to 12 participants.

The investment for the day is $195 when paid along with full payment for the full program.

The tuition for the day as a stand-alone event or as part of the payment plan is $235.

Lunch is included.

Thank you for a wonderful day. It was just what I needed and I’m glad I came. The group of woman gathered was just perfect and your teaching was superb. I could see you were enjoying yourself and truly in your gifts.

Thank you for doing all the work of developing your programs, workshops, books, newsletter, private group page, classes etc., and sharing them with us. I appreciate the growth I have experienced since meeting and working with you.

I look forward to more to come. (Growing into next).

I found the teleconference format very effective. Even though this was a conference call I felt as if Leslie were talking to me individually.
