Leo Bierman is a co-founder of the Brooklyn Center for Sacred Activism, an interfaith minister, and an acupuncturist. Before entering the healing professions, Leo spent the majority of his time studying the contemplative and inner transformative practices of the world’s spiritual traditions. In addition to his personal studies in various traditions, he received a BA in Comparative Religion from the Macaulay Honors College at Hunter College, and was ordained as an interfaith minister by One Spirit Interfaith Seminary. In order to expand his ability to help people through healing, transformation, and personal evolution, he later studied Chinese medicine, acupuncture, and related modalities, and now runs a private and community acupuncture clinic in New York City. The Brooklyn Center for Sacred Activism is a space where people can gather, connect, learn, and then go out into the world with intention, awareness, and compassion. Through the center, Leo helps run retreats, programs, and offers spiritual counseling for individuals looking to connect more deeply to their sense of purpose and vocation.Currently, his work has expanded into thinking strategically about how to move individuals, organizations, and institutions toward greater wisdom and compassion.
