Leela's Bio

Leela Maya is your San Francisco born, down-to-earth, science educated, witchy dragon mama. You can trust her to speak the real thing in joyful service to your healing.

With a background in environmental science and geology, Leela has a knack for spotting hidden patterns and interconnections. In a roundabout way, she started her spiritual journey as a raw vegan dessert chef in 2007 during the early days of Cafe Gratitude where it first began in the Mission District of San Francisco. It was working there that she discovered the power of intention, community, and how truly nourishing food felt like sensual kitchen witchcraft for her soul.

Picture a world where women’s circles, goddess magic, and the natural rhythms of the planet converge in a delightful dance of spirituality, authentic relating, and community: that basically sums up her last two decades living in the enchanted forests of Marin County, just over the Golden Gate Bridge.

Now, having lived the last three years in La La Land, she is following her calling to foster individual and community seeds of grounding, authenticity, and vulnerability through the Spirit of Sacred Play!

Her academic ventures in the Sciences, Theater, Improv, and Somatic Therapy provide her with a unique lens through which she perceives the intricate tapestry of life.

Having graduated a two year Meisner Theater Conservatory in Berkeley, as well as a two year Embodied Communication and Relationship Coach certification, Leela expertly marries movement, dance, mask work, and the art of conflict resolution, creating a warm and nurturing space for personal growth for individuals and romantic partners.

Leela spent many years in alternative relating communities, and is available to provide support for both traditional and outside of the box relating styles. Love is Love is Love.

In 2015 she began working with the transformational festival, Soul Play, teaching improv, movement, embodiment, and communication workshops several times a year. This community of dancers, therapists, artists, yoginis, coaches with integrity, and deep and playful people has been one of the greatest inspirations in her life.

And now that she has moved to SoCal, it is a great aspiration for her to continue to create healthy environments like this for individual and community growth.

Her passion for fostering inclusive environments extends to her work with neurodiverse individuals and a trauma informed approach bringing understanding and support to those who often find themselves feeling misunderstood.
Your unique operating system is welcomed here.

In the great big world, Leela teaches Improv for Inner Child Embodiment Classes, is a Raw Vegan and Traditional Dessert Chef and Caterer. She leads workshops at Liberate Yourself, and is spearheading Liberate’s farmers market pop up booths, and is currently hosting a weekly by donation Ecstatic Dance in Griffith Park, called Ecstaturday LA.

We often hear that the leading cause of our problems is within ourselves. But so is the solution.

It may seem far-fetched, but the power to solve all of our physical and emotional issues, whether it’s health, relationships, career, finances, self-esteem, or something else, is in our hands.

Metaphysical counseling helps us uncover the root of our suffering and address it accordingly. Let’s find out how!

Great for: Transitions, getting to the next level, breaking free of limiting beliefs or blockages, empowering one to believe in themselves, having accountability through your goals

what is metaphysics

Metaphysics is the most abstract branch of philosophy that deals with the first principles of existence. In Greek, the word metaphysics means “after the things of nature”.

Metaphysics examines the very nature of reality. It offers explanations for phenomena that cannot be explained by “natural” science or that are “beyond the physical”.

This science studies the individual as a whole, as a physical and spiritual being.

Certain types of chakra healing and other holistic, spiritual healing practices, personal development, and even business coaching are based on metaphysics. They typically include working on physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of one’s being to resolve issues that person is facing.

The fundamental law of metaphysics is that every action or decision causes a reaction or an effect. Everything that happens to us (positive or negative) results from past actions or decisions in this lifetime or before the present life.

Similarly, everything we do now will have an effect on our life in the future. This law is better known as karma (action).

It is also believed that we must resolve our life’s issues in this lifetime.

What is metaphysical counseling?

Metaphysical counseling is based on the principle that everyone is sent by the Soul (higher self) to grow at all levels of their being through their life experiences and the lessons they learn in life.

Sometimes referred to as spiritual or transpersonal counseling, it represents a whole person approach – body, mind, and spirit. This type of counseling helps us better understand our life experiences by explaining aspects that our senses cannot perceive.

To put it simply, metaphysical counseling is a form of therapy that empowers us to empower ourselves.

There are many ways metaphysical counseling can take place. This will depend on the practitioner you choose, the kind of spirituality they practice, and the specific issues you may be looking to address.

Some counselors will advise you on the use of crystals for healing, while others will stress the importance of prayer.

This is why it is essential to find a counselor whose beliefs align with yours. Otherwise, your counseling might not have the desired effect.

What can metaphysical counseling help us with?

Metaphysical counseling is a type of holistic-approach therapy based on spiritual principles. This psycho-spiritual approach helps people live a more authentic life by making conscious choices.

It is a self-empowering therapy that gives us the tools to identify and address the imbalances in our belief system that cause conflict and prevent us from achieving success and happiness. These beliefs are so subconscious that we aren’t always aware of them.

With the help of a therapist, people can discover the fundamental causes of their suffering and reach a solution through self-discovery.

It is all about learning to utilize our own self-healing power to reinstate harmony.

This can apply on multiple levels – physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual. Good metaphysical counseling will address all of those.

What does a metaphysical counselor do?

A metaphysical counselor is capable of healing not only the human mind but the body as well. They can help with various mental issues, including depression, anxiety, and loneliness, or any physical illness, by offering guidance and support to their clients.

A metaphysical counselor can help us navigate our way to health, success, strength, or anything else we desire. They also help clients understand their spiritual nature in this lifetime and beyond.

Each counselor will have their own approach; some will focus on the metaphysical properties of the things around you and how to use those to your benefit, while others will prefer working on your own inner world.

We are all exposed to various positive and negative influences that shape our daily actions, thoughts, and reality. Negative impacts lead to issues like anxiety, negativity, and close-mindedness.

Metaphysical counseling aims to free people from these negative influences and their effects.

Gaining a better understanding of ourselves and our connection to the physical and spiritual world surrounding us with the help of a metaphysical counselor gives us the ability to recognize these harmful influences and build a defense mechanism.

The root of these problems lies deeper than the physical, mental, or emotional sphere. To find a solution, we must target the source. And that lies at the deepest and wisest level of our being – the level of the Soul. Many life situations can only be addressed through the metaphysical laws, and the soul factor is always present. Metaphysical counselors teach us numerous powerful techniques and spiritual principles we can utilize to find the greater good in any challenging situation.

They give us the tools to find a solution to our life issues without a struggle, using less energy in the process.

What to expect from your first metaphysical counseling session

During the first session, the client answers a series of questions regarding their life and the issues that are troubling them.

The counselor listens attentively to understand not only the surface issue but also the stressful beliefs and patterns that are causing the problem.

Further steps depend on the specific type of counseling and the counselor you choose. But after a counseling session, the goal is for clients to experience a greater sense of inner peace and well-being.

Not a one-size-fits-all approach

Metaphysics is a versatile form of therapy, so it can be adjusted to the client’s changing needs as the sessions develop.

Therapists use a variety of counseling skills and techniques. They usually determine which method is the most suitable, depending on the client’s condition at that moment.

For example, you may focus on meditation to prepare yourself for success but turn to more conversation-based therapy to deal with anxiety.

As you and your counselor work together, you will find what works best for you personally. This is one of the significant benefits of metaphysical approaches – they are highly flexible.

Metaphysics can be applied to almost any condition and is incredibly helpful with issues regarding:

mental health
challenges in the workplace
relationship issues
dealing with stress and anxiety
understanding emotional reactions
unlocking habitual patterns
