We are so happy to have Healer and Priestess: Leila Sadeghee part of our “Find Your Inner Light” Box‘s online workshop! We have interviewed her.
Who are you, where are you from and where in the world are you now?
My name is Leila Sadeghee. I am Iranian-American, from the States, and I live in the UK.
How often do you take some “me time” and how important it is for you?
I don’t really think of it as taking ‘me time’ – I consider my need to be centered and resourced in order to participate and serve in my communities. So it is more than important – it’s a necessity. And rituals of attunement, connection, and contemplation are a part of every single day for me. ‘Me time’ exists so that ‘Us time’ – my relationships – can be unencumbered by projections and distortions that can hurt others and diminish community. I tend my needs so that I can show up with a full heart for myself and others.
What are your favourite wellbeing rituals to do at home?
I chant mantras and sing prayers, and I meditate every day. I often read spiritual texts and have a few long-term contemplation projects – with texts such as The Gospel of Mary Magdalene, or Tantric texts like The Doctrine of Recognition Sutras. I also pull Tarot cards, craft rituals for the phases of the moon and the year – and I love to cook for myself and friends. I always have several altars on the go – so I love crafting altars at home as well.
What are the benefits of your brand to a person’s wellbeing?
I am a guide for people who are seeking their deepest fulfilment. Students and clients of mine discover potent ways into joy, deeper creative expression, and love as a default setting for daily life, and are no longer held under the sway of their habitual distortions. My work unleashes freedom, and invites people into a state of celebration of themselves and life itself. Everything I share is in service of our individual & collective awakening, which is, imho, the highest benefit possible.
One piece of advise to help reconnecting with our body?
Your inner light is what you actually are, not something you have or have to get. Contemplate that. ‘I AM inner light’. Notice where the contemplation leads you, including any resistance you have to this. Keep stimulating the process through returning to this phrase, ‘I AM inner light’ throughout the winter season.
