Get to Know Your Facilitator

Marisa Leon

Marisa was born an energetically-sensitive child and has always had a fascination with different forms of communication. As a child, she frequently asked her parents questions about Spanish and pretended she knew sign language after she saw Marlee Matlin on Sesame Street.

Studying communication sciences and disorders at the University of Texas at Austin was the perfect fit. There she completed all four courses in American Sign Language and earned a Bachelor of Science degree. She went on to earn a Master of Arts degree at Our Lady of the Lake University in San Antonio, TX. She has been a practicing speech-language pathologist ever since.

It did not take long before she sensed something she could not explain was going on with children diagnosed with autism. Her first thought regarding what might be happening was these children were born with an innate knowledge verbal communication is not necessary. They were communicating in so many different ways, showing a high level of intelligence and established social connections with her.

She was successful in helping children find ways to communicate using traditional speech therapy techniques, be it verbal communication, sign language, writing, use of letters, assistive technology or a combination of different ways. She kept her ideas to herself throughout the years as other professionals she interacted with in the field did not share her perspective.

Her interest in quantum physics was the bridge to finding Awesomism. She had seen What the Bleep Do You Know, starring Marlee Matlin, and her curiosity on the topic never ceased. Years later, after watching another quantum documentary in which Dr. William Tiller was interviewed, she was compelled to look up his Facebook page as he was also interviewed in What the Bleep. There she saw Suzy Miller's picture next to the words, “former pediatric speech-language pathologist.” Clicking the link changed the course of her professional and personal life.

Now, following years of experience as a speech-language pathologist, becoming an Awesomism Core Practitioner and a lifetime of energetic-sensitivity, her intention is to support other professionals make conscious shifts within themselves creating a space of limitless potential and possibility benefiting the professional, the children and their families in new, paradigm shifting ways.


Marisa Describes This Course To YouClick here to read now!

This course is designed to share a new perspective of what autism is and what our role is as professionals in the lives of the children and families we serve. The ultimate key to having great success in your work with these highly gifted children is making a shift in awareness within yourself and establishing greater connections with higher states of your own being. Each week will demonstrate how Self-awareness and personal coherence facilitates remarkable outcomes regarding what is expected from us as professionals.

You will also learn what it is to be an energetically-sensitive child as opposed to a disordered child with a medical diagnosis and how to hold this awareness in your work environment. It can be difficult to find a way to share and communicate to other professionals and parents who do not share this new perspective. I will support you in communicating with others from this new perspective in a way that will help them receive the information we share, as well as how you can receive information they share from their perspectives. All perspectives are true. This course will help you know how to hold a space that integrates all pieces of information presented by our fellow professionals and by parents which ultimately benefits the children, their families and you!

You will learn techniques and approaches, which facilitate continued presence and coherence within yourself, which lead to higher states of consciousness. This will create a whole new space for the children and parents you serve to enter into new potentials and possibilities.

It has taken many years of making mistakes, learning what works and practicing presence to be able to develop this course. I am excited to share with you all I have learned on my Awesomism journey as a practicing speech-language pathologist.

It's continues to be a fun, joyful and Awesome experience.

Your Personal Invitation From Suzy

Dear Professionals,

Thank you for your interest in this course. The course itself was created, in collaboration, by Speech-Language Pathologist Marisa Leon based on her professional experience and the direct application of the principles offered through Awesomism and myself.

This eight-week course is geared to support YOU as the professional of energetically sensitive children, and YOU as a powerful agent of conscious change!

Marisa works directly with children diagnosed with autism and other energetic sensitivities as well supports educators and parents to better understand this population beyond the label!

My own background as a Speech-Language Pathologist taught me that working with this population has a lot more to do with who you are being while you are with them and less to do with what you are doing! To truly understand these children, why they are here and what matters most to them is the first step in serving them.

Marisa has taken awareness of energetic sensitivities to a whole new level, offering clear, concise information, through experience about what positively supports these children in therapeutic and educational settings. She is one of the most intuitively gifted therapist I have met and the development of her own mastery as witnessed through the Awesomism practitioner process has been thrilling the watch unfold! She is an amazing representation of Awesomism in action!

Enjoy the Journey,

Suzy Miller

What Others Are Sharing About This Course

It has been such an honor and a growing experience to have been a part of this group!!!

Eva, ST

I wanted to share with you that after listening to Marisa during this course and applying these principles, Ive seen positive changes in my students.

One of the twins grabbed my hand and made me touch his face, he also kissed me and smiled at me.  He is usually serious and distant, so I felt he is integrating more. His brother also said words or phrases, such us, "hi bird", "help me", and both are improving in typing with facilitated communication.

"C", one of the twins, has been sitting at the lap of the lead teacher and is being more sociable. This happened after I acknowledged her work at school, and that she could verbalize how she was feeling before. Thank you Marisa for your advice.

It was created in the energy of the classroom, and it has had positive results!
