About Leslie Vivian
Leslie Vivvian has lived over half her life in Calgary, moving here in 1980, Stampede week no less! She remembers everybody walking around in cowboy boots, big hats, with giant belt buckles and shouting ‘Yahoo’ at every opportunity. Coming from a fairly conservative city in Ontario, this was a little unnerving to say the least. However country music soon dominated her radio station and she could be found at the Ranchmens once the children were grown, taking many western dance lessons. Raising three beautiful Calgarian daughters kept her very busy for the first few years and now she is happily helping with two adorable grand children.
How did this dream come about? A number of years ago, Leslie organized and ran a business called ‘In Praise of Hands’, an arts and crafts centre which offered many classes, studios, a store and an area filled with beautiful creations for sale by talented local artists. This lead to a weekly TV show for two years featuring many of these wonderful artisans to showcase their talents and work. In 1999/2000 with children mostly now grown, Leslie and a partner wrote the ‘Little Black Book’ – an events book filled with places to go and things to do in Calgary for an entire year. The stage was set for the future.
After finding a favourite class had started two weeks prior and a speaker had come to town earlier that month whom she had particularly wanted to see, Leslie called upon her previous skills. She set about finding numerous events which she posted in an excel spread sheet and sent out to many in the spiritual community. It was very successful but ended when she moved away for six years. Returning to Calgary, in the fall of 2016, she was gifted with a vision of not only doing the same thing but expanding it to include as much as possible in this whole magical realm.
