Heal, Restore, and Transform Lives & Relationships
Our intimate, face-to-face communication games have proven to fill an extensive void in our fast-paced, increasingly disconnected technological world.
Trance4mation Nation’s board games and card decks make indispensable dialogue, and transformative, life-changing, deeply compassionate conversations convenient and highly enjoyable, and have impacted over one hundred thousand lives to date.
When you have no way to process your experiences, or to share your struggles and your dreams, possibly little access to resources–when you won’t or can’t go to a therapist or counselor, where can you go?
Trance4mation Nation has met and continues to meet this challenge by developing and launching restorative communication games which provide for a human infrastructure of compassion and healing. Hundreds of millions of people have no one to share their struggles, lives, experiences, or even their dreams with, and do not have access to, or resources for therapy, or due to stigma will not go to a counselor or therapist.
No matter how alone you may feel, these tools provide a space in which we discover we share many of the same struggles, and where we can give and receive guidance, support, compassion and healing...And have a great time!
Leslie R. Robinson
Creator & Founder
Throughout my life, I have always been highly sensitive to people’s emotional pain. My mother had significant mental health issues, and I helplessly watched her cycle in and out of severe mood swings. This left me without anyone to share my inner life with, or to have the opportunity to develop my own identity. Through years of my own significant emotional struggles, and decades of work in underserved and marginalized communities, as a social worker, therapist, facilitator, workshop leader and presenter, I have dedicated my life to helping people to explore their feelings, experiences, realities, and lives, and to provide ways for them to experience their humanity and value through authentic connection with others.
I have worked tirelessly to develop and launch my communication games – designed to provide safe spaces for people to explore the darkness and the light within, from our demons to our dreams, with those who want to understand. Until now, there have been no “tools” or processes to accomplish this. I wish I could have had a tool to connect on much deeper levels with people in my life who I have lost to suicide. People playing these games often state that they know the people they have played for one hour with better than they know most of the people in their lives who they have known for years. These first and only of their kind “games” are meeting an urgent void and need.
