Would you know if you're being blocked from Love?
I sure didn't — until I was unblocked.
I thought I was fine.
I didn't know what I was missing.
Let's be vulnerable. Here, I'll go first.
My name is Leah Dawang
& for over a decade,
I've been clearing the way in my life.
And I tell you what, I had my fair share of stuff in the way. I lived life believing I was fine because I thought I should be and trauma was reserved for the 'big' things other people experienced.
Now that sentence makes my skin crawl.
The thing is, I never thought anything was bad enough to take action.
"Sure, I am overwhelmed with sadness and fear. Who isn't?" I told myself. "Yeah, I have a collection of broken relationships, an inky thought life and feel disconnected from my body. Who doesn't?" I justified.
Then, in 2010, I found myself debilitated and reaching out for help. I was at war with a ravenous eating disorder. In pain and confusion, I navigated what felt like a maze of thorns in the dark of night.
Years later, I emerged and experienced receiving Love for the first time.
Elated with freedom, I was surprised when someone told me, "You haven't seen anything yet."
"How much better could it get?" I mused.
That's when it hit:
We are created for unlimited Love but blockages from trauma keep us from receiving it, which means they keep us from giving it.
Not just big things but the "little things" too.
Since then, I've been on a journey of clearing, receiving and giving and Love has transformed my life.
Now I support other people — like you! — clear the way so they can receive and give Love too.
Are you ready?
WHAT IS A
COMMUNION RESTORATION JOURNEY?
A Communion Restoration Journey is a consilient approach to Clearing The Way so that you may receive and give Love.
Consilience means we draw wisdom from different lenses including spirituality, science, and humanities to create a comprehensive perspective.
It's a tapestry woven from ways of knowing and healing including:
Christ derived mysticism
Receiving Love is an embodied way of being that expands endlessly over time.
The best part is, your system already knows how to receive Love
because it's what you were designed for.
You were designed to be embodied, ensouled and enearthed.
You just need the proper conditions to do so.
A Communion Restoration Journey creates the necessary conditions, purposely guiding you through the disorder and disconnection and into reorder and reconnection, Clearing The Way so that you may commune even more with yourself, others, the Living World and True Spirit.
WHAT ROLE DO I PLAY IN THE JOURNEY?
I am sherpa supporting fellow hikers navigate life's mountains
I've been up and down the mountain many times before and now guide others, while still on the journey myself
"Leah is a gentle trail guide for the foggy areas
we may be afraid to face, but must."

HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT THAN THERAPY?
I am a Communion Restoration Guide, not a therapist.
Therapy is carried out by a licensed professional who intends to help people recover from emotional or other psychological disorders such as depression or anxiety through diagnosing, testing, assessment and treatment.
As a Communion Restoration Guide, I work with individuals and couples who desire to receive more Love. Together, we intuitively move through obstacles that block you and Clear The Way so that you may commune even more with yourself, others, the Living World and True Spirit.
