What we will cover
Homework: Purpose and Masterpiece
Before the Legacy Retreat starts, we will help you define your Personal Purpose and identify your next Masterpiece via an online call. Purpose articulates what we call our Inner Game - the essence or spirit of you we are. It explains why you are here and is the key to unlock creativity, collaboration, courage and compassion. According to Adams and Andersen's research with 250,000 leaders around the world, those who lead from their Inner Game are up to 1,000% more effective than those who don't. A Masterpiece is breakthrough innovation in the form of a business, book, initiative or relationship that brings your Purpose to life, using your Outer Game, or strengths. It is the greatest contribution you can make to yourself, your family and society. If you've already articulated your Personal Purpose and / or Masterpiece with me in a previous program, we'll use this call to help you speed up the process of bringing both your Purpose and Masterpiece to life. And finally, we’ll invite you to take the Legacy NOW Test to explore how balanced your life is along the following four key dimensions - your worklife, your lovelife, your health and your wealth. You will also discover what level you are operating at on The Legacy Pyramid and how you can move to the next level.
First evening: Arrive and Connect
On the first evening, you will have time to settle into the retreat centre before we meet and connect. We will introduce ourselves and share our expectations for the retreat Then, we will eat a simple delicious, local dinner. All meals will be nutritious, healthy and tasty. After dinner, we lead a guided meditation to ground us and connect us.
Day One: Breakthrough Barriers
On the first full day, we will invite you to share your Personal Purpose and Masterpiece and help you remove what is stopping you from bringing both to life. We will explore the results of the Legacy NOW Test to identify the dimension of your life you want to work on. Throughout the retreat we will use art, breathwork and energy work to help you create a breakthrough and get into flow. Everything we create is an expression of our Purpose. Whether or not it becomes a Masterpiece depends on the work we've done to free ourselves from our self-limiting beliefs. These beliefs are embedded in the cells of our bodies, and act like rubber-bands. Every time, we try to make a leap to bring our Purpose or Masterpiece to life, our body pulls us back into the old us. That's why some joke that one of the wealthiest places in the world is the graveyard - it is full of Masterpieces which never saw the light of day. We'll also explore the Inner | Outer Game model in more detail. And finally, we will start to get more clarity around your Masterpiece.
Day Two: Define your Legacy and Develop your Masterpiece
On the second full day, we will help you to define your Legacy - how you leave the world a better place than you found it. Your Legacy combines everything you think, say and do. You cannot not create a legacy, you can only choose to consciously create one starting now. We will understand the gap between the Legacy you intend to leave and the one you will leave if you continue along the same trajectory. And then, we will then help you to start closing that gap by developing the Value Proposition for your next Masterpiece. A Value Proposition helps you clarify who your audience is and what value you add to their lives. All great Legacies start with a Masterpiece: Michelangelo started with the statue of David, which showed the divinity in humanity; Nelson Mandela’s started with The Truth and Reconciliation Committee, which prevented civil war; and Steve Jobs started with the Apple Mac, which transformed how we create and communicate. You may say you’re not Michelangelo or Nelson or Steve. You are just as unique as them thought. And your Masterpiece will help others grow. It will serve them. And by serving them it becomes the greatest contribution you can make to yourself, your family and society.
Day Three: Discover your Artist Profile and develop your 100-Day Plan
On the final day, we will help you establish your Artist Profile or Outer Game. All of create differently based on our experience and expertise. We have a different combination of strengths. The Artist Profile is based on the iChing - the 5,000 year old Chinese Book of Changes, which was the basis for the psychologist Carl Jung’s work on archetypes. It follows the cycle of the seasons. Some of us create ideas (Spring energy). Some of us create communities to connect these ideas to people (Summer energy). Some of us create business models to harvest value from these ideas (Autumn energy). And some of us create the processes to regenerate and scales these ideas (Winter energy). These are the four Artist Profiles: the Creator, the Collaborator, the Choreographer, and the Calculator. Each creates differently. Masters and successful teams balance all four of these energies. In the final part of the workshop, we'll identify a series of actions you can take to generate momentum around the idea and turn it from a dream into reality. We'll step out into the future to understand what your Legacy looks like at the end of your life and then bring it back to what you do pragmatically in the next 100 days to bring it to life now. We'll also explore what the implications are for each aspect of your life (Worklife, Lovelife, Health and Wealth) and how you can continue to bridge the gap between your intended Legacy and what you create.
My legacy is awakening the artist inside you. It is how I would like my children, friends and society to remember me when I am no longer physically here.
It is my personal purpose - free the world's creativity to accelerate sustainable creation - expressed in the world outside me. The problem is the majority of what we create is based on the principle of wealth creation rather than sustainable creation - what the ego wants rather than what the essence needs.
Thus, the purpose of my art - painting in extreme locations, giving keynote talks, running workshops and retreats like The Legacy Workshop - is to wake up the Creator within us, the artist inside, so you create the Masterpiece and Legacy you were born to create.
In each location, we will assemble a worldclass team of nutritionists, energy healers and / or breathwork instructors to help us remove the physical, emotional and spiritual blocks that have stopped us from bringing our Masterpiece to life in the past. You will unleash energy you didn't even know existed, become unstoppable on your journey and step into an entirely new world.
We have hand-selected a series of partners and properties in Japan, France and Mexico so you get the most of your retreat experience. Each is surrounded by nature. In Japan, we will stay in Margaret Attwood's (the founder of The Passion Test) favourite property, next to a lake in Nagano Prefecture. In France, we will stay in Friedrich and Margareta von Kirchbach's home, Domaine de la Garde in Bourg-en-Bresse. It is surrounded by 40 hectares of park, meadows and forest, and yet only 10 bicycle minutes away from the city centre of Bourg-en-Bresse. And in Mexico, we will stay in the mountains at a spa resort where the Dalai Lama has consecrated a statue. In each location, we will provide nutritious local food, yoga and / or breathwork to start your day in balance.
