When the weight of your giving exceeds that of your pain, that’s when everything changes.

– Mathieu Twagirumukiza, Survivor of the Genocide in Rwanda

Do you believe that love can heal ANYTHING? Our guest today does. And she has seen it first-hand.

In addition to trauma survivors, Dr. Leyden also works with heart-centered healers, teachers, coaches, social entrepreneurs and change-makers who are committed to their own healing and yearn for more meaning and impact in their lives
Dr. Leyden is doing some incredible things – She founded the non-profit organization Create Global Healing and established Project LIGHT: Rwanda – the world’s first international youth healing, heart-centered leadership and entrepreneurship program. Project LIGHT nurtures our next generation of young people to heal, work and lead us into a peaceful future.
(There is no limit great or small, be a part of a peaceful future!) 
One of the most inspirational things about Lori is that she finds the miracles that are possible out of tragedy. She finds hope in the most unexpected places and her work is living proof in the transformative power of forgiveness
She has worked with genocide survivors in Rwanda and those effected by the tragic shooting in Newtown, CT. And she believes that love can heal ANYTHING. Let me say that again, LOVE CAN HEAL ANYTHING. And I’m all about getting on board with that.
Lori is living her destiny and she is launching a 7-week course on SEPTEMBER 21, 2016 to help others do the same! She will teach you how to uncover your truest potential and heal old wounds that are blocking you from doing so. SO SO cool that she is sharing her wisdom!
