Ignite Your LionHeart - A LionHearted Leadership™ Retreat with Linda Tucker (in English with German Translation)

"When you bring your true nature back into harmony with Mother Nature, realigning head with heart, you suddenly find you're able to restore balance, health and resilience in your own world. I call this amazing process: 'A-LION-MENT'." - Linda Tucker

In this exclusive retreat, Linda Tucker shares what the legendary White Lions can teach us about our own capacity for LionHearted Leadership in a world in transition.

Over this transformational weekend, Linda will work with you to introduce the teachings that she was initiated into, over 25 years ago, by Shangaan medicine women and Shamans. After an introduction into the 13 Laws of LionHearted Leadership™, each participant will experience in depth one or more of the Laws, as you actively review and reshape your own unique blueprint and consider how you can adjust your own course to follow your true purpose as an awakening LionHeart.

We will get outside into nature as much as we can, in a pristine natural area of beauty and quiet.

This seminar has a limited number of spaces. Your reservation is definitive only with payment of the participation fee to the Fondation Lascaux. Please book the room also directly at the Fondation Lascaux.

Linda Tucker grew up in South Africa, where in 1991 she was rescued from an angered pride of Lions by a Shangaan medicine woman known as The Lion Queen of Timbavati. Since then, Linda faithfully and courageously works with and teaches these ancient truths which she was initiated in to become a lion priestess herself. She is author of Mystery of the White Lions, Saving the White Lions, and LionHearted Leadership™.

LionHearted Leadership™: The Meaning of the White Lions for Humanity
Lecture with Linda Tucker (in English with German translation)

"Although my work with the White Lions dates back over decades, my focus these days is on harmonious coexistence between people and Nature - that's how we remember our true natures. Out of decades of campaigning for these luminous animals and their right to survive and flourish in the natural world, a LionHearted Leadership™ model has emerged that's capable of igniting our won hearts and healing our human world." - Linda Tucker

In this public lecture, pioneering conservationist and author, Linda Tucker, shares what the legendary White Lions - Nature's King of Kings - can teach us about our own capacity for LionHearted Leadership™ in a world in transition.

As ecologists have now established, the lion, as apex predator, restores health and balance to all animal and plant species in its ecosystem: all the way down the trophic levels of the food chain to the earth. Much as the Lion is responsible for maintaining continuity of life in the ecosystems, so the human leader takes responsibility for the continuity of living heritage.

The 13 Laws are imperative teachings that we, as a species, are called to urgently return to now, if we are to rebalance and bring harmony back to the world.

Award-winning conservationist and author, Linda Tucker's life and work has focused on protecting the legendary White Lions as a living heritage, and inspirational leadership model. Her life with lions began in 1991 after a threatening encounter with a pride of lions which prompted her to mobilize a global movement, campaigning through Parliaments, world congresses, TV interviews, NPOs; and by securing vast protected heritage lands in the heart of their ancestral territories, she has successfully rewilded the White Lions.


LionHearted Leadership™:
Die Bedeutung der Weissen Löwen für die menschliche Zukunft
Vortrag mit Linda Tucker
(in englischer sprache mit deutscher Übersetzung)

"Nach jahrzehntelanger Arbeit mit den Weissen Löwen konzentriere ich mich heute auf eine harmonische Koexistenz von Mensch und Natur – welche uns an unsere wahre Natur erinnert. Aus vielen Kampagnen für das Geburtsrecht dieser strahlenden Tiere, in ihrer natürlichen Umgebung zu überleben und zu gedeihen, hat sich ein LionHearted Leadership-Modell entwickelt. Ein Zukunftsmodell mit dem Potential, unsere Herzen zu entflammen und einen Beitrag zu leisten an die Heilung unseres Planeten." - Linda Tucker

Linda Tucker, die mit vielen Preisen und Ehrungen ausgezeichnete naturschützerin und autorin, wird uns in ihrem bewegenden Vortrag in die Welt der Weissen Löwen mitneh- men und uns mitteilen, was die «Könige der Könige» der natur uns über unsere eige- nen Fähigkeiten für eine LionHearted Leadership™ in dieser Welt im umbruch lehren kön- nen.

So wie der Löwe für die aufrechterhaltung der Lebenskontinuität in seinem Ökosystem verantwortlich ist, so ist es unsere Verantwortung, die Kontinuität unseres lebendigen Erbes zu bewahren .und zu den uralten Gesetzen zurückzukehren, die unerlässlich sind, wenn wir in der Welt Harmonie wiederherstellen wollen.

Als wegweisende naturschützerin konzentriert sich Linda tucker darauf, die legendären Weissen Löwen als leben- diges Erbe und inspirierendes Führungsmodell zu schützen. ihr Leben mit Löwen begann 1991 nach einer lebensbedroh- lichen Erfahrung mit einem Rudel Löwen, die sie dazu veran- lasste, eine globale Bewegung zu mobilisieren, Kampagnen durch Parlamente, Weltkongresse, tV-interviews, nPos zu lancieren. Es gelang ihr grosse teile der Wildnis als geschütztes Gebiet für die Wiederansiedlung der Weissen Löwen zu sichern.

This incredibly strong personality is named after the formidable Ingwavuma I, Linda Tucker’s guardian lion who was tragically hunted by
