2021/2022 – Date to be advised – Northern Rivers region of New South Wales

Outrageous Grace: Activating the Alchemy of Your Heart to Heal Yourself, Our Children and Our World with The Grace Process & EFT/Tapping

This is your opportunity to spend 5 days with Dr Leyden for this residential retreat in the northern rivers region of New South Wales!

As the Grace Process resonance expands, the opportunity for these 5 sacred days together has emerged, allowing us to immerse in the process. Staying on site, we’ll share meals, love and laughter throughout the weekend. This is a rare opportunity to reconnect with your true self in an intimate and supportive environment.

Lori will lead you through her uniquely practical, transformative, Grace Process for becoming your most authentic, heart-centered self, expanding your professional mastery and stepping into your destiny.

If you believe in the possibility of becoming a new Divine human, or if you are already experiencing yourself there, come play with other heart-aligned transformers to alchemise and expand the Divine being you are and are becoming, in a resonance field of all possibilities.

This retreat experience is right for you if you are:

  • A heart-centered transformational healer, teacher, coach, social entrepreneur or change-maker who is committed to your own healing and yearn for more heart expansion, meaning and impact in your life, your work and in our world.
  • Already on a spiritual path and begun healing your essential wounds
  • Willing to have fun and see the cosmic jokes as well as miracles and gifts that abound on our journey.
  • Open to surrendering to the mystery of your journey into the dream of what this life can be.
  • Experience a deep inner knowing that you have something powerful and purposeful to accomplish in this lifetime but you’ve only manifested a fraction of what you yearn for.
  • Feel stuck in unresolved wounds that fuel self-doubt and limit your beliefs and actions to realise your unique destiny.
  • Sometimes feel alone, disconnected and/or ashamed of wanting or having big dreams for yourself and our world.
  • Feel restless with yearning and urgency to have more meaning, fulfilment and greater impact.

Like candy for the soul. A sweet rush appealing to the little child within. Never before have I felt so safe to be so real, so vulnerable and so accepting of myself and others. I left a lighter person with less intention and a fuller heart.


This retreat is a truly amazing and transformational journey. Going into it I felt a bit scared and vulnerable but Lori created the safest and most nurturing environment allowing me to have a deeply profound healing experience. The Grace process is truly graceful. Everything about this weekend was beautiful and magical. I am so grateful I followed my heart and attended the weekend.

Lori Leyden is a magician of the heart. She works miracles. How does she do this? By opening the hearts of others. She is creating “conscious evolutionary heart leaders.” She goes to places of the most outrageous pain and suffering such as Rwanda. There she cultivates healing groups among people who have suffered deeply from violence. There she helps to heal the wounded and fearful and trains them in loving leadership. This is a symbol of what is needed on Earth. Her mentoring course: “Outrageous Grace: Activate the Alchemy of Your Heart to Heal Yourself, Others and Our World is actually THE most needed course that we all should take. Thank you Lori for your courage, brilliance and dynamic heart leadership!
