Develop the Masterpiece*
you were born to create

The Legacy Retreat | Japan | France | Mexico

*A Masterpiece is breakthrough innovation in the form of a business, initiative,
book or relationship that transforms your world for good. It is the greatest
contribution you can make to yourself, your family and society.

Would you like to bring the Masterpiece you were born to create to life?

Would you like to discover who you and what you really do with your life?

Would you like to leave a legacy for your children or grandchildren to remember you by?

You are an artist. We all are. Maybe not the one that creates paintings or sculptures, composes music or writes books.

Maybe your art is uniting people behind a greater purpose or developing sustainable solutions to address humanity's greatest challenges such as climate change or inequality or simply being the best husband, wife, father or mother you can be.

Whatever your legacy, we need you to join the global choir. Are you a bass, a tenor, an alto or a soprano? Without your voice, the rest of us are missing out.

To rebalance the planet, we must first rebalance ourselves.

Bring the Masterpiece you were born to create to life.

What we will cover

  • 1

    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. 


Alexander Inchbald

Alexander Inchbald: Extreme Artist and Creation Mentor

Each morning benefit from yoga or breathwork, and energy healing and nutritious food throughout the day




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.

The Legacy Retreat is a life giving event you will never forget!

George Dorros, Former WHO Program Manager

The legacy retreat was a wonderful gift to have at a time when I needed to take stock in terms of the next phase of my life journey.

Caroline Harper, Senior Advisor, Inclusion, Diversity and Gender Equality, UNHCR

Alexander has a particular gift to connect with people’s deep energy and is able to help them to radically shift perspectives and to realize, articulate and express their vision, tapping into an impressively diverse body of knowledge and techniques. What in my view makes Alexander different from other coaches is the positive energy he infuses into the person he works with and the determination he has to help her to identify and recognize the life purpose and to work out together a plan of action, as opposed to just providing listening and frameworks for the person to progress on her own.

Mario Musa, Former Head of Communications, World Trade Organization

Alexander as animator in Chief and Friedrich as the consummate host, were jointly able to create a space for deep thought and inner reflection in the glorious setting of the Domaine de la Garde and its glorious gardens.  The process allowed all of us to harness the power of art to create a vision for our future legacy.  Enjoyable and transformative in equal measure.

Gib Bulloch, Founder of Craigberoch Business Decelerator and Accenture Development Partners

Who this course is for

This program is for everyone who feels called to make a difference in their world. Everyone from CEOs to yoga teachers, from former UN Directors to Chief Marketing Officers have attended. This course calls those who are ready to face their biggest fears and elevate their energy.
