Leslie Zehr is a sacred arts teacher, workshop leader, mentor, and author, who for more than 30 years has supported women to reconnect to the Divine Feminine within through the mysteries of ancient Egypt.
Born in Peru and educated in the United States, Leslie followed a calling to “return” to Egypt in 1986 to learn about and experience the ancient mysteries. In 2002, after an initiation experience at Dendera Temple in Luxor, she received and developed the Universal Dancer, a simple but profound method of Sacred Dance that works with sacred geometry, primordial energies, waves and the chakras to unlock intuition, vitality and creativity.
A trained hypnotherapist, reiki master, astrologer, aromatherapist and homeopath, Leslie is the author of two books –The Alchemy of Dance: Sacred Dance as a Path to the Universal Dancer, which has been translated into Spanish, and The Al-chemia Remedies: Vibrational Essences from Egyptian Flowers and Sacred Sites – as well as a CD entitled Navel Portal Activation and Guided Visualizations.
In Cairo, Leslie founded and ran The Centre for Health and Well-being, which later became The Centre for Sacred Arts, a modern-day temple for learning and creativity honoring the Goddess Hat-Hor. Her lectures and workshops in Sacred Dance and the Al-chemia Remedies have taken her from Cairo, ancient Egyptian temples and archaeological sites along the Nile River to studios and centers in New York, Maine, Maryland, Arizona, Washington and Puerto Rico.
Leslie is currently at work on a third book about dance as a spiritual practice. She continues to live in Cairo, with her children and grandchildren. Read full bio…
