A 7-day Residential Retreat with
Provence, France - October 5 to 12, 2019
Join Leonard on a week-long retreat in the stunning region of Provence, France at Résidence Les Belles Heures.
This vacation destination is located in the small village of Roaix, part of the Côte du Rhône wine region and close to the famous Mont Ventoux in Vaucluse.
Over the course of this retreat, participants will come together in Oneness and surrender to the depth and beauty of the present moment.
Each day, we will attend teaching sessions with Leonard where there will be opportunity for personal guidance, as well as individual time for silence and reflection. You will discover how to heal and release the past, open more fully into the present moment, overcome limiting beliefs and experience the deepest levels of inner silence and peace.
The natural environment and quiet pace of the residence will allow for extraordinary experiences to unfold. There will be time to take walks through the vineyards and countryside, explore local villages or simply relax by the pool.
This retreat is for those who are ready to deepen into Presence whilst enjoying the splendor and beauty of a week in the South of France.

"Being on retreat with Leonard has been a deep, life-changing experience for me. As soon as I found the courage to throw myself into the fire, I was met with the most loving and brilliant guidance. And joyful, beautiful healing followed. What had been unconsciously blocking and scaring me for lifetimes, was released in minutes! Leonard's teaching, his ability to simplify and make clear what mind and ego makes complicated, his sharp seeing of ones own readiness and his never wavering commitment to truth, to our awakening, has brought deep trust into my life. Trust in Presence. I am so fortunate to have had my prayer for a true teacher answered! I am forever deeply grateful for that. " - Katarina, Denmark
