Linda Tucker presenting at Ty Mam Mawr in North Wales

After an exciting 6 weeks on the road with the LionHearted Leadership™ tour, it’s good to be home in the Heartlands with my lion family. But what a wonderful adventure! Jason and I were overwhelmed by the warmth and enthusiasm of new friends and long-standing supporters. I’d like to once again express my deepest thanks to the many gifted people whose tireless efforts and open-hearted generosity made the tour such a success.

A special thank you to my brilliant hosts and organizers, Andrea Contri in Italy and Andris Barblan in Switzerland. A man of many talents, Andris is also a master photographer, so I hope you enjoy some of the captivating moments with me through his lens.

I launched the UK leg of our tour with a solo presentation at The 13 Laws of LionHearted Leadership™ Retreat in Denbighshire, North Wales, which was sold out 2 months before the event. Thank you to Julie Lines, UK Director of the Linda Tucker Foundation, and her team for hosting a deeply  transformative experience with Shayne Newlyn at Ty Mam Mawr, a truly rural, off-grid eco-estate deep in the hills of North Wales. One of the many highlights of the weekend was the arrival of a flock of rural sheep at our conference window, just as I was presenting on the White Lions – fitting indeed!

Back on grid in Manchester, UK, I met up with Jason for the 5th Annual Animal Energy World Conference where I opened the event as Keynote Speaker. That evening, Jason was Keynote at the VIP Gala Dinner reception. This was our first appearance at the conference, which has been steadily gaining popularity over the years and we were honoured to have the Global White Lion Protection Trust nominated as the charity of choice.

A huge thank you to founder and organiser, Marie Holliday, for the love and energy she poured into bringing this event to life and all the animal healers, communicators and LionHearted souls in attendance who so generously helped raise more than £4,000  in support of our commitment to lion conservation.
We gratefully acknowledge everyone who donated raffle prizes and offer warm congratulations to the lucky winners.


Yvie Armstrong, the Treetop weekend winner

And special thanks and congratulations to Yvie Armstrong, who made the winning silent auction bid for a weekend in our Tree-top dream house: a secluded, private retreat situated in the heart of Royal Pride territory.
We look forward to having you join our team, Yvie!

In Italy, our destination was a beautiful accredited Agri-Tourismo destination organised by Andrea Contri, who’s generous commitment to the White Lions dates back a decade. Here the 27 workshop attendees were sparked by an intensive LionHearted Leadership™ training, while breaking for regular feasts on all-natural farm products home grown (including honey, and superb home-made pasta).

Andrea & Linda

To crown it with a magnificent surprise event in honour of the White Lions, Andrea organized an evening at the Moderna Conservatoir of Music, with powerful musical compositions, poetry inspired by my book, Mystery of the White Lions, and amazing first-hand accounts of Andrea’s personal stories connecting to the White Lions, and other animals. It is with absolute delight that I wrote the forward of Andrea’s book on animal communication, due for publication later this year.


The Italian leg of the Tour culminated with an inspired visit to the legendary Damanhur community, where Mother Nature in all her biodiversity is celebrated by a truly enlightened group of people.

I was honoured to be taken deep into the exquisite underground temples, and to present on the luminous White Lions to a leading example of Global Ecovillages Network (GEN), holding a shining beacon for ancient-future civilisation in harmony with our planet.

Then off to Switzerland for events hosted by Andris Barblan, distinguished graduate of our Academy of Lionhearted Leadership™ and auditing developer of university systems around the globe, and translator of the 13 Laws publication in French.

Wendy Schaub went so far as to secure a venue in a castle at Rolle overlooking the magnificent expanse of Lake Geneva, and when she found we couldn’t fill the space, she deftly rescheduled for a beautiful 18th century dining room which boasted the same view.

The trip included a meeting with IATA, by the invitation of long-standing supporter, Violeta Dineva, to assess what is being done by the International Airlines Association to regulate transportation of animal parts on international carriers. In short, they are committed to assisting CITES-based regulations, but nothing beyond that mandate, so the desperate plight of the lions continues, as we chart another way.

On a positive note, an exciting partnership has been established with the Swiss-based advanced technology organisation I-Like, now granting commission-based support to the White Lion Trust on specific products sold, as well as donating E-Smog converter technologies for our camp and on the radio collars of the lions. Thank You, Jacques Bauer. Update to come!

The lions lit many hearts wherever I took the Tour, such a generous and warm-hearted reminder of how large the White Lion pride has grown.

ROARS of gratitude to the many generous organisers and enthusiastic attendees!
