December 6th: Rev. Dr. Barbara Leger

Lesson: “If Winter Comes, Summer Will Come Again: Above the Clouds, the Sun Is Always Shining”
When life takes the twists and turns that many of us experience during times of such dramatic change and upheaval, it is natural to let the worry bug gnaw away at you a bit.
And as we are moving into Winter, and the news hasn’t let up, I painted my house yellow. We can make a decision today for how we intend to respond if any of our less than wonderful qualities emerge in the deep of night. This INTENTION can carry us through with gratitude for our presence of consciousness that planned ahead for grace and ease.
On Sunday, Dr. Barbara will reveal a path of possibility where we are resilient and impervious to the bad news and attuned to the good. Join us, and invite a friend to this practical, good for anyone talk.
Rev. Dr. Barbara Leger has a long and illustrious career in entrepreneurship, literally guided from perfect place to perfect place. From house painter, writer and small farmer, then to Dimensions Radio, then to being a co-founder of PBS station Ch. 22 in Sonoma County. In 1986, she began YES Productions, a marketing and organizational development company, then LEGER Internationale as a project developer for the early wave of economic joint ventures between US/Europe and Soviet Union then Russia.
After years of serving on many boards, she entered Ministerial Training, graduating in 2000 as a licensed minister. She has always felt the call to peace. Leaving her dog to her son and her Buick Park Avenue to her daughter, on Sept 11th, 2001, Rev. Barbara took the leap to answer the call and brought her experience, vision, and determination to Ukraine, committed to do all she could do for PEACE on EARTH there in that mysterious and challenging land.
This year Rev. Barbara celebrates 19 years as the spiritual leader of a diverse organization in change. TEMENOS has spawned 2 non profits: the existing Temenos East: Center for Self-Realization, which is the teaching chapter in Ukraine, now being managed and led by a collective of practitioners, and the new NGO to serve young people and the adults who care for them. WE: Stand for the Future, was born in July 2020.
