A Spa for the Soul Retreat with Dr. Lori Leyden

A Spa for the Soul Retreat with Dr. Lori Leyden

Join us for this rare opportunity to spend 3 days and 3 nights with internationally known trauma healing professional, transformational leader and spiritual guide, Dr Lori Leyden.

Dr. Leyden has been on a lifelong journey to heal her own traumas, find the most gentle and elegant ways to heal and transform, and bring this work to as many people as possible so together we can create global healing in our lifetime.

In her words, “Our spiritual journey is all about embodying our Divinity.” That’s why she has developed The 5 Stages of Embodied Grace© – a “heartmap” for healing – and The Grace Process® – a formula for moving you from the trauma of separation from the Divine to trusting yourself and your own Divinity.

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

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 your 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.

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.


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.

Dr Lori Leyden’s Grace Process is an exquisitely elegant formula for developing a deep understanding of one’s self. Lori leads everyone through the process with such insight, compassion and delicious humour. Attending Lori’s Spa for the Soul Retreat is one of the greatest gifts you could give yourself.


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!

Booking twin share accommodation?

If you wish to book a twin share room, it is necessary to already know who you would like to share the room with. You will be asked to include their name when registering.

Where is Country Place located?

Country Place is a 50 minute drive East of Melbourne CBD located at 180 Olinda Creek Road, Kalorama VIC 3766.

Is ground transport included?

Ground transport is not included as part of your registration cost. If however you are attending the Mind Heart Connect Conference prior, a contact list will be available for you to express your interest in a ride share.

Why is the retreat commencing two days after the MHC conference?

The small window of down time scheduled in-between the conference and the retreat is by design. We suggest you utilise this time to take a breather and join us refreshed on the Tuesday evening.

What time does the retreat commence?

When you arrive at 6pm you will have time to settle into your room, prior to our first meal together. After the evening meal, we will gather and your Grace Filled Living journey will commence.

Will there be time I can simply relax and enjoy the surrounds?

During our time together you will have multiple opportunities to take time out. Some of the work Lori sets is in reflection and quiet time. The location certainly lends itself to this aspect of the retreat experience.
