Leadership Academy

Find the ‘LION’ within:

Take effective action in your life, in service of our planet and humanity.

THE PURPOSE of the White Lion Leadership Academy is to address the most critically urgent crises of today, including politics, economics, education, religion, culture, value systems and, most fundamentally, sustainability. It does so, however, in an entirely unique heart-centered way. Although focused on modern innovative techniques, the White Lion Leadership Academy’s methods are founded on the most ancient indigenous knowledge systems, more relevant now than ever before.

THE TRAINING activates LionHeartedness™ to enable future leaders from all walks of life to become powerful agents of change, willing to challenge existing paradigms and champion new approaches to life. To become such a leader, each of us needs to make one simple shift: from an insecure, exploitative, need and greed ‘consumer culture’ to a confident, loving consciousness that holds deep reverence for the sanctity of life and Mother Nature.

INSPIRED by the White Lions, the Leadership Academy offers an Initiatory training in the 13 Laws of LionHearted Leadership™, formalized by Linda Tucker, after 3 decades of pioneering work in protecting these magnificent animals, and their message for humanity.

Every year, an immersion in the 13 Laws of LionHearted Leadership™ is held over a 4-week period, which takes place in the Heartlands of White Lion ancestral territories. Established in 2012, the Academy is led by Linda Tucker and has attracted multicultural participants from around the globe, with workshops and intensives delivered by world class facilitators in a variety of fields.

LionHeartedness is that quality of fearlessness, inspired by Love and Respect for Creation that enables us to transform our world. It makes us unstoppable.” 

– Linda Tucker

In our human striving for excellence, purpose and fulfilment, these 13 Laws teach us how to work with ourselves, with each other and with Nature to bring us back into being a state of harmony that will, ultimately, enable us to save our planet from the consequences of the terrible imbalances that our human unconsciousness has brought about.

This kind of empowering “Ignition” of the Heart can transform humanity, change the course of history, and save the world.

By restoring our own health and balance we aid planetary healing.

By remembering our true natures, we can support Mother Nature.

By reclaiming natural law, we reevaluate the inadequacies of our human laws.

We are then in a more empowered position to act – and influence the positive outcome we wish to see in our world.

The most effective way to address the ills in our environment is by changing ourselves.
At the Leadership Academy, it all starts by igniting the LionHeart”

– Linda Tucker

When the going gets tough, the LionHearts are unstoppable!

Despite the sad outcome of ANC cabinet members unable to stand united to remove our corrupt president through a Vote of No Confidence, we are encouraged knowing that emerging next-gen leadership is on its way up - and truly LionHearted in its commitment to address key issues of transformation.

The most recent “Ignition of the LionHeart” training culminated on World Lion Day: Brave, Strong and True.

It was again a very special group of people, and one of the LionHearted participants shared with us how she experienced this intense training:
"Lionheartedness for me means, feeling your strength, your footprint, your very unique gift with what you came in this life.
And seeing it as a gift and not as a burden.
And with all our different, unique footprints treating our world with the love, respect and the harmony it deserves."

Thank you, to all the unique souls that participated this Igniting the LionHeart Training!

With deep sadness, we honor this great lioness, who survived against monumental odds, and often came visiting our pride on our eastern frontier. She was an expert huntress, and eye witness accounts describe her pulling down game for her own pride. A recent scientific paper established that White Lions are successful hunters in the wild (www.open-science-repository.com/biology-45011830.html). Stress in their natural system, however, including higher incidence of poaching, Bovine Tuberculosis, and the impact of commercial lion trophy hunting, has unnaturally increased the level of conflict amongst lion prides. Commercial trophy hunting often targets pride males, impacting not only the individual lion hunted, but destabilizing the entire pride structure. If Timbavati resumes their lion trophy hunting policy (which was halted briefly following the notorious Cecil incident), the future survival of white lions in the wild, as well as tawny lions carrying the white lion gene, remains in jeopardy.

With each step of this 20" x 30" replication of the cover of my first novel, I am learning how to "let go" of any doubts and just go with the flow. I have never attempted a textile painting this large. I use meditation in every piece of art you see, I then illustrate what is given to me. This inner voice is in everyone and it will allow you to tap into the artist within. I even wrote a book about it.
