We will cook, eat, laugh, cry, yell, roar, drum, climb and scramble together while supporting and honouring each other for this weekend of empowering work lead by Leandro D'Andrea.



Arrive in the afternoon and soak in the peaceful atmosphere.

Unwind and relax. Let go.

At six we'll join together to eat dinner.

Then our work begins with a brutally honest check in of where we are at in our lives (our struggles, our emotions, our body, our work, our relationships).

Then out under the night sky to set our dreams to the stars. Allowing ourselves to really see the big picture of what we want for ourselves.



Rock climbing at The Roaches

Sit on the top and see out over the Dales and take perspective of our lives, reflecting, focusing and carving out the vision we see for our life, our relationships and our purpose.


Then down to the Derwent River for some Wild Swimming to cleanse of the sweat from the hard climb and wash away things from our past we no longer wish to carry into our new lives.


Back to our cosy hut for lunch and then group work under the shade of the trees, working on our shame and guilt, defining and owning our own unique values and breaking limiting beliefs that have held us back from pursuing the lives we want.

Setting a plan of action.


In the evening we will light a fire in a nearby wooded area to call in the ancestors and give thanks for those that lived before us. I welcome you all to unfold your bivvy bags and come sleep out under the stars with me, there is always the shelter of the hut nearby.



An early start out to the ancient 4,000 year old stone circle Arbor Low to have a shamanic healing at sunrise then back for brunch and empowering exercises to send you and your new found vision, values and purpose back into your reality bringing a close to the weekends work but just the beginning of your true journey.

What to bring

You'll need to bring a sleeping bag, bivvy bag, pillow, towel and toiletries, spring hiking gear, swimming gear, notebook, pen and a second set of indoor clothes for the group work: if you have them you are welcome to bring drums, sacred objects or climbing equipment.


Born and raised in New Zealand, surrounded by the ancient and inspiring beauty that is Tongariro National Park, Leandro shares his core Shamanic teachings in a form that is respectful of all practitioners and cultures; taking a universal approach that is strongly influenced by the work of Michael Harner. Leandro leads our New Zealand tours drawing on his expertise as a scout, shamanic practitioner, chef, men's group facilitator and wilderness guide. Leandro works with Michele Lukis as a Shamanic Practitioner in London offering one on one healings and holding monthly Andean Circles where he teaches shamanic principles. He also runs weekly men’s groups for personal empowerment and leads shamanic walks of consciousness through the woodlands of the UK.


Apprenticed in Peruvian Shamanism to Maestro of San Pedro, Rueben Orellana (PhD), Leandro has been working with traditional medicine plants, such as Ayahuasca in the Amazon and San Pedro in the high country of Peru. He studies Core Shamanism with Simon Buxton of The Sacred Trust. Leandro’s work is based in a strong belief that we are all connected and therefore we should all show love and respect to one another. His efforts for the future are to bring men back in touch with nature and to fully realise themselves as conscious men.
