At the Heart of the programs of Embracing Wisdom is recognizing and honoring that you have your own inherent wisdom which has risen from a lifetime of experience:

The paths you have walked, the tables at which you ate, the people you have loved, the people you could no longer love, the circles in which you have sat, the classrooms in which you studied, the yearnings that you felt and the graves where you cried...


... By simply being alive and taking the exquisite risk of loving you have: 

Lost who or what is achingly beloved and precious to you…Suffered the deep and often enduring pain of being wounded... Yearned for a life not realized and the paths not finished… You have faced the life-altering consequences of difficult and unwelcome change.

While at times you survived, thrived and moved-on... You also know the places in your Heart, Body & Spirit where you feel lost and alone... Unsure of the next step or where to find a bit of secure footing. 

A facilitated Journey through the Seven Spirals of Grief and the Three PathWays of Grief  will help you to find Your Way and Embrace Your  Wisdom

To Remember, Enliven and Experience The Sacred Rhythm of Your Own Magnificent HeartBeat 

To Walk...The Way Within

The Way Within is an online program that is private and self-paced. It contains text, video, audio and downloadable content.

For an enhanced exploration of The Way Within, Leonie Wolff is available for private or group facilitation. Send an email via 'contact' above for more information.


The Way Within... 

Is your personal journey through grief, loss and profound change.

You will explore The Seven Spirals. That rather than stages, grief is a spiraling ebb and flow through seven expressions. That ‘closure’ is an illusion while ‘integration’ brings you to a valuable and sustainable relationship with grief.  

You will discover how the Three PathWays of Grief touch all parts of Who-You-Are. Often at the root of where we struggle, grief is hiding. With a deeper understanding of your own personal experience of the Three PathWays, grief itself can be a powerful and insightful ally for living a more vibrant life. 

From a deeper understanding of your own unique relationship with grief, you will learn methods to shift unconscious reaction into conscious response. The personal insight gained and your own expression of path finding that you will create from The Way Within will continue to serve you as life unfolds on both the remarkable and the difficult paths.     

The Three PathWays of Grief.

Today one of the pathways may be more present with you. This is your entry point, yet none of the three stands alone, each interacts with and informs the others. Understanding your own unique relationship with the Three PathWays is at the Heart of The Way Within...


Where you stumble, there lies your treasure... The very cave you are afraid to enter, turns out to be the source of what you are looking for... The damned thing that was so dreaded... Has become the center.

From: 'Reflections on the Art of Living: A Joseph Campbell Companion' edited by Diane K. Osbon. 

Passionate Sadness: 

The death of someone or the loss of something deeply precious to you.
It is something that happens to you. It is often sudden and can change your life in devastating ways.
Passionate Sadness can leave you feeling like a stranger in a strange land, facing the chaos of a path with a destination that is unknown.
Understanding the Seven Spirals of Grief will help you to find your way. 

Dancing With Shadows:

Shadows are the wounds of a lifetime. Something that was done to you.
We all have them, some small, some quite large. With time wounds can seem 'healed' yet the shadows of their presence remain.
This is a grief that other loss tends to touch. Fresh grief stirs up the old wounds. Understanding our own unique shadow dance can help transform unconscious reaction into conscious response. 


The Haunted House:

The haunted house contains all of the dreams, visions and hope for your life, that did not happen. The paths not finished or never walked.
Sometimes this grief is quieter and less obvious. Yet it can remain as a place where our hesitation, inertia and fear live. A place we stumble.
Facing what resides there with recognition and understanding can transform the haunted house into a place of release, integration and inspiration.    

From Leonie: I was the first participant of The Way Within.

It was created out of my personal experience of grief and loss, and from weaving into it the work and study of my lifetime.

I am blessed to have beloved and supportive family and friends... Remarkable teachers, collaborators and mentors... And if you are one of the thousands I have sat in circle with as a facilitator or been at your side as you faced the difficult paths... You have touched, informed and inspired me.

For all of this and for all of you... I bow in Gratitude.  

Are you ready? Let's walk together for awhile...
