Fresh “Lev” White Next BRN Academy teaching with Fresh “Lev” White -- March 1st 2020 @ 1:00pm US Pacific Time

Perfect As We Are: A Self Compassion Practice

In this session we will release self-doubt and/or self-blame, and engage in a practice of self-love and self-forgiveness.


Fresh “Lev” White is a love and compassionate activist. He offers mindfulness, coaching, mediation, and diversity trainings as tools for shifting towards more authentic, conscious and passionate living. He teaches and writes about how love and self-compassion are the ultimate gateways to loving and understanding others; thus, healing our communities, and our planet.

As a coach and Founder of Affirmative Acts Consulting, Lev supports executives, entrepreneurs, artists and other coaches with achieving their goals. Through value alignment, offering accountability and helping to create individual practices of self-care, and self-compassion, his clients have successfully improved their management skills, founded organizations, and taken leadership roles in new executive and director positions. Through the practice of mindfulness, Lev helps clients see clearly through their fears, and improve their emotional responses to challenging situations, which supports strengthening their efficiency and expanding their creativity, in all areas of their life.

Lev has offered over 200 diversity trainings in the Bay Area and beyond. He earned facilitation skills through his coaching certification, and an extensive leadership training program, each through the Co-Active Training Institute (formally known as The Coaches Training Institute) in 2011.  He was trained on delivering LGBTQIA+ Ally trainings by CUAV in 2002, and in 2005 became a Certified Trainer through Out and Equal Workplace Advocates."
