Leanne has a way of explaining that is revealing and clarifying. She moves through the sutras not so much as ideas, but closer to a guided meditation.  ~Online participant, 2018
 

My brain clings to the Western way of acquiring knowledge and this was an earth shattering approach to the study of the sūtras.
