I’m Emily Leahy, founder of Return to Sacred and certified healer and guide in the Modern Mystery School. On my journey of anchoring my power and having more meaningful impact I realized that I needed to get real and honest with myself.


 In 2004, after suppressed emotions and the compulsion for constant control led me down a road to complete self-destruction, I chose to reconfigure my life. I started with the conventional methods of outpatient treatment for my life threatening eating disorder. But dissecting old stories didn’t help me break the cycle – only reinforced it. In 2006 I found yoga, which opened me up to a whole new world of alternative healing. I was dabbling in different tools, but was still left feeling incomplete. I craved having full access to my spirit, while feeling grounded in my human body.


After a few years, I left my position as an elementary school teacher in 2011. I embarked on my new adventure as a serial entrepreneur. My goal was to be everything and do whatever it took to get there. I drove myself dizzy with stress chasing my own tail. My primary mode of operation was adrenaline, rather than vitality – although I didn’t know the difference at the time.

That summer, I met a guide from the Modern Mystery School and received a Life Activation session. As I continued to follow the breadcrumbs of curiosity, many doors opened for me. I had found what I was looking for: a way to function on a higher level. Utilizing ancient lineage-based energy tools, I awakened parts of myself that I could explore and integrate in a balanced way. My life began to shift from scattered to sacred.


 Here I am in 2018, living in San Francisco, CA and my world looks very different – inside and out. I have built a deeper connection with myself, which has given me the courage to let go of what was draining me. By knowing my true worth and investing in what is most important, I give myself the freedom to do less and hold more.

I have learned that making a greater impact does not have to equal being overwhelmed, compromised, and depleted.

Now, I have the bandwidth to listen to that soft voice that navigates me every step of the way. Never before in my life have I felt this level of confidence, clarity, support, and inspiration on such a consistent basis.

It is an honor to be living my highest purpose daily: sharing healing modalities, meditation classes, trainings and energetic tools through the Modern Mystery School like a good dessert. There is nothing sweeter and more fulfilling than helping people make the breakthroughs they’ve been striving to achieve.
