Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”

When I was in grad school, I did a lot of reading to look for Enneagram patterns in the wisdom traditions (I looked primarily at Christianity and Buddhism). Concurrently, I was doing my Enneagram training. In listening to panels, you can see people’s core “vice” as they share their stories.
For 15 minutes, my granddaughter Sophie filled and refilled her shoe and watched the sand spill out the sides. She barely looked up. Her focus was exquisite to witness. Then she got up and walked. She noticed how her foot made impressions in the sand. She pointed to...
I used to have pat answers for people who say, "I don't want to be put in a box."After spending a week at the International Enneagram Association conference with the most diverse crowd I’ve ever seen, I experienced over 400 souls with lines, edges, shapes...
I originally sought out Leslie to find out more about my Enneagram type. Little did I know what I actually yearned for was spiritual meaning and that our work together would set me on a path to self-transformation. Leslie’s compassionate coaching and loving presence have helped me grow in ways I never expected. During each session, she creates a safe space for me to explore my vulnerability—the gateway to intimacy. As a result I’m able to connect with others and myself in a way that feels authentic and deeply satisfying. Leslie’s soul-centered approach to the Enneagram is perfectly suited to anyone who feels called to dive deep and discover the person they were born to be.
The best word I can find to describe Leslie Hershberger’s way of working with teams is the word ‘catalyst.’ She has a very rare skillset way beyond training and facilitating both of which she does superbly. But there are a quite a few good trainers and facilitators ‘out there’. Leslie is very different in that her method might be described as an intervention into the mix of a team’s dynamics or energies. Her method precipitates collective team awareness. Team members discover how they are operating as a team. The result for the team is the ability to identify its own performance drivers and blockers and rapidly adopt those behaviors that result in breakthrough performance. Hence the word ‘catalyst’. She is quite something to watch. I have found working with Leslie personally transformative as well.
Leslie is both warm hearted, and thoughtful in her teaching and coaching. I have witnessed her depth of knowledge, teaching skill, and awareness. I consider her a brilliant teacher and life coach. Her insight into the fundamentals of their personal and spiritual development makes her teaching especially poignant. I recommend her highly. You will benefit from your experience with her.
Leslie’s presentation impressed me deeply because of its integrative focus and clarity. I have come to understand and admire Leslie’s very deep and very broad perspective on spiritual pursuits and practice. I have also come to know what a gifted, patient, and generous teacher she is.
