Academy for Lionhearted Leadership™
Find the ‘LION’ within:
Take effective action in your life, in service of our planet and humanity.
THE PURPOSE of the Academy for Lionhearted Leadership™ 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 Academy for Lionhearted Leadership™’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”
