StarLion Centres

creating a lionhearted world with the White Lion Academy

The StarLion Programme has identified 5 schools, building relationships and agreeing to common purpose with the school principals so that the LionHearted Leadership™ Laws may be used for empowerment in grassroots communities.

Linda Tucker has developed the StarLion Programme together with theatre and stage specialist, Yolandi van Jaarsveldt, who has dedicated many years of service to the White Lion conservation project. It’s run by Sibusiso Ngobeni and Harmony Khosa, whose connection with the project is deeply personal as his great-aunt was Maria Khosa, Linda Tucker’s shamanic teacher and mentor.
Maria Khosa bore the ancestral title Keeper of the White Lions, which she passed on to Linda Tucker after her death.

 

The StarLion Programme involves children from grassroots communities in innovative initiatives to connect them with a love of the land and all of life, helping them to identify in themselves the qualities of LionHearted Leadership that will empower their lives and in many instances enable them to achieve dreams that might previously have appeared impossible.

The dedicated team uses theatre and animation, plant-growing projects, field trips and many more practical themes to teach and live the ethos and the message of the White Lions.

Linda Tucker’s 13 Laws of LionHearted Leadership™ have been adapted for emerging StarLions by Development Psychologist and Leadership Coach, Mae Naude.

“I have learnt there are only two rules in Nature: Love and Respect. If you follow these two golden rules, you will never be harmed. This is the very basis of the LionHearted Leadership™ teachings in our StarLion Centres”

Linda Tucker Foundation

In the midst of a global lion crisis that treats Africa’s most sacred animals as a killing commodity in cross-border trade, Linda Tucker and specialist lion ecologist, Jason A. Turner, have dedicated their lives to the solution. Where governments have failed, the Global White Lion Protection Trust has raised millions of dollars to establish a protected area for this iconic animal in the heart of its spiritual and ecological homelands, a UN biodiversity hotspot. Their StarLion projects unite youth with elders, science with sacred science, and love with respect to help restore human systems alongside ecosystems.
