About Lee Warren
My Mission: To “pass a sacred transmission down my fractal line” by offering my leadership, learning, and insight in service to reclaiming wisdom (personal & collective).
My Vision: A world where folks are co-creating sane, pleasurable, liberated, integrated, cohesive, connected, and blissful lives. Within and without.
It is my great honor, my great pleasure, and my great responsibility to serve the whole.
Through Sacred Inquiry into, Deep Intimacy with, and Absolute DEVOTION to our own existence.
My goal with this website and my educational offerings on SEX, DEATH, & COMMUNITY is to be a resource and an inspiration for that journey.
If you’re here and reading this, you likely have a spark for the the sacred.
Please know, we are all on this path together. I believe that every one of us brings innate wisdom, important gifts, and sacred guidance.
I see myself as a candle. To help illuminate the way for those who feel called by the mystical, sometimes invisible, often buried longing to find the wisdom ways of knowing. To reweave, with beloved others, more sane and soulful ways of being.
Lee has lived in residential, land-based, place-based intentional community for more than two decades. At East Wind Community (1997-8), Acorn Community (1999-2001), Earthaven Ecovillage (2001-2013 full time and 2014-Present part time). Living, working, and co-creating on this type of canvas has been the apprenticeship of a lifetime. It has required stamina, perseverance, integrity, and a overarching commitment to personal and collective healing.
Lee is a co-founder, co-designer, co-builder, and co-owner of the Village Terraces Cohousing Neighborhood within Earthaven Ecovillage, a community within a community. This collaboratively -designed, multi-residence, eleven-acre cohousing project based on the principles of sustainability, regenerative agriculture, extended family social systems, place-based resources, off-grid utilities, hyper-local economics, and ecological design systems.
These days, Lee spends most of her time in Asheville, NC, where she cavorts, in delicious rapture, with her beloved community of queer identified folks who are building the new paradigm through nature, intimacy, pleasure, and shared reality.
Primary relationship in the form of romantic, intimate, sacred union has been a throughline in this life. Through the tools of emotional intelligence, trauma informed relating, attachment theory, Non-Violent Communication, Lee is pioneering conscious coupling infused with Tantric practice, conscious kink, polyamory, and community. Stay tuned for more work in this area.

Like most of us, I have been formed by others, by life, by circumstances, and by grace. I am infinitely blessed. I stand on many shoulders and follow many who have come before. A great big shout out to all my beloved teachers. Each one of them has contributed to my emergence as a halfway healthy human being.
My Ride or Die: To Sean for loving me in and out and up and down and all around and thick and thin and from here on out. The miracle of our love is present with me always. I cherish your guidance and treasure your existence.
