ABOUT THE FOUNDER
LEAH BLACK

Leah has always felt like an explorer by soul, with a true passion for global cultures past & present, Nature, wilderness immersion and seeking purpose. Originally from Wirral UK, she now lives in the vast & mysterious mountains of Northern Spain. She grew up inspired by an array of spiritual mentors and her mum who is a master reader of the I-Ching Chinese Oracle & Tarot. Having practiced them for 45 years, she shared her wisdom with Leah. Leah's often felt her purpose is to help others to find their sense of purpose, fulfillment & wellbeing.

Leah has extensively volunteered and travelled Ecuador, Zambia, Uganda and Kenya, living in large cities like Kampala and Guayaquil and remote rural areas too. International development, community capacity building, mental health & personal development are her core career areas. On days off she explores ancient sites, gets lost in mountains and forests and photographs Nature's beauty. A life-changing accident in Leah's early 20s shifted her away from her original dream job. Plot twist!
