Leslie L. Bost

Leslie lives a Nomadic life with her husband and 4 children. You will usually find her on the ocean or between Los Cabos, Mexico and France. She is a human being who deeply cares. She cares about the connection with our children, our world, and most importantly the connection to ourselves. She believes that if we nourish ourselves from within, with loving self-care on a physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual level, we will become the change we want to see.

The origin of her story of healing started after much trauma, abuse, abandonment, adoption, eating disorders, deep depression, multiple miscarriages, complicated pregnancies, NICU babies, and all of the challenges that these experiences bring to a marriage and parenting. This journey brought her to healing through mindfulness, meditation, therapy, compassion, and ultimately conscious parenting with Dr. Shefali Tsabary, trauma-informed work with Dr. Gabor Mate, Spiritual Psychology with Suzi Lula, Intuition Intelligence with Ricci-Jane Admas, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Timeline Therapy, Liberation Coach, and most recently a Masters in Conscious Parenting with Yvonne Laborda, BreathWave Certification and Post-Grad studies in Spiritual Direction.

This process of liberation and study has allowed her to develop a methodology by which she guides others through her company, Sabios Parenting. Currently, she is building a family healing retreat centre in Pescadero, Mexico alongside her husband and children called Casa Damara. Casa Damara is a movement in conscious family living.

Leslie’s goal is to guide overwhelmed humans, coaches & and parents to tap into their inner power and intuition and create compassionate inner-connection, while acknowledging their God nature. Ultimately, looking to have her clients navigate life understanding their subconscious programming, triggers, patterns, and limiting beliefs to release all that does not serve them and better connect with their loved ones through presence.
