LEONARD SCHEFF is a practicing attorney in Tucson, Arizona -- and a practicing Zen Buddhist.
He created the Letting Go of Anger seminars and workshops with input by John Tarrant Roshi, and has taught them since 1993.
He has attended several of the public teachings by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama including the four day workshop in Tucson in 1993, and a more recent 2003 teaching. He has participated in and led numerous Gestalt workshops. While Leonard's anger transformation seminar is based on Buddhism through the teachings of the Dalai Lama, he believes these same principles are universal in all spiritual traditions. Leonard is a graduate of the University of Arizona and Boalt School of Law at Berkeley. He has been a trial and transactional attorney in Tucson, Arizona, for more than fifty years. His primary area of practice has been in advising businesses dealing with complex real estate transactions. In addition, he has been active in litigation involving civil liberties and social justice.
