George Leonard

George Burr Leonard (1923 – January 6, 2010) was an American writer, editor, and educator who wrote extensively about education and human potential. He was President Emeritus of the Esalen Institute, past-president of the Association for Humanistic Psychology, President of ITP International, and an editor of ''Look Magazine''. He was a United States Army Air Corps pilot, and held a fifth degree black belt in aikido. Typical of his philosophy, life's work, and the times (1960s,) Leonard stated: “Western civilization has been a 2,000 year long exercise in robbing people of the present. People are now learning the powerful joys that hide in the narrow place of the hourglass, the eternal moment. Here is their golden learning: to see - really see - spring flowers; to feel - really feel - the grace of love.”

Leonard was a co-founder of the Aikido of Tamalpais dojo in Corte Madera, California. He also developed the Leonard Energy Training (LET) practice for centering the mind, body, and spirit. Leonard died at his home in Mill Valley, California on January 6, 2010, after a long illness and was survived by his wife and three daughters. He was 86 years old. Provided by Wikipedia
