“I read almost the whole thing in one sitting, but realized I wanted to savor my connection with Leela and her world, so finished it the next day! We need more boosts in the direction of higher consciousness…and the book is a wonderful journey of one woman ‘s entrance and furtherance in that direction. Thanks for Leela’s Gift, I accept it wholeheartedly…” JS, SF, CA
