Welcome to Level 3: Immersion
The ART of Leadership
September 21 - 28, 2023 | Breteuil, France
An 8-day deep dive into human consciousness, providing the insights and skills to lead and facilitate transformation in groups, organizations, and communities.
The ART of Leadership is designed for graduates of our Level 1 and 2 courses to deeply immerse in the practice of authentic relating within a community of practitioners committed to cultivating themselves as relational leaders and embodied catalysts of cultural transformation.
The advanced skills and practices in this training will support you to be on your tender edge where healing, growth and sustainable change happens, all while resourcing yourself in the profound power of human connection and the nourishment of nature.
Part leadership training, part connection laboratory, and part initiatory experience, this week will support you in the unique ways you desire to engage in and contribute to this world. From clarifying your vision and purpose, to facilitating transformational events, to being the embodiment of this work as a gift and inspiration for those you relate to in your life.
Who is this for?
A diverse group of participants thrive in our Level 3 course, including those who simply can’t get enough of Authentic Relating, leaders seeking to integrate relational principles into their current roles, and facilitators and healers who are eager to deepen their embodiment of authentic relating.
For the "can't get enough" Authentic Relater
This is your opportunity to immerse yourself even further in the practice you love. You’ve experienced the profound richness it brings to your life, and now you’re eager to explore more, to share it with the people you care about. In this course, you will find what you’ve been searching for – deeper connections and new depths of Authentic Relating. Join a community of kindred spirits who share your longing for meaningful connections.
For the Leader
This program is designed to support you in integrating authentic relating into your current role of leadership. Whether you’re an entrepreneur, a manager, a parent, or leading and organization or movement, you recognize the value of being relational, connected, and integrated in your approach. You aspire to lead from the heart while maximizing your effectiveness. Level 3 will provide you with the tools and skills to lead authentically and foster a culture of trust and connection.
For the Facilitator or Healer,
This training will help you fully embody your role of service. As a coach, therapist, or practitioner in the healing arts, you understand the importance of leading your clients and students with an integrated, relational way of being. Level 3 will deepen your understanding and practice of authentic relating, allowing you to bring a grounded and transformative approach to your work. If you want to go all the way, it’s a stepping stone on your path towards becoming an Authentic Relating Certified Facilitator through our Level 4 training.
If any of these descriptions resonate with you – or perhaps you have your own unique way of being in the world that would benefit from the transformative experience of Level 3 – you are warmly welcomed to apply.
The ART of Leadership is a transformative program that combines cutting-edge training tools and practices. Led by our Senior Course Leaders along with a team of mentors sourced from our Level 4 Certification program, the Level 3 training supports participants to step into self leadership, carving an authentic and connected path forward in the diverse aspects of their personal and professional lives.
During this immersive training, you can expect to:
- Embody authentic relating at a profound level, where it becomes second nature – like speaking a language or playing an instrument effortlessly. You’ll release the structures that were once necessary and learn to flow freely with the practice
- Cultivate profound self-awareness and insight. Develop the ability to identify and articulate your personal experiences in the present moment, while gaining the tools to navigate unconscious patterns, habits, projections, and stories.
- Acquire a powerful toolkit of practices to create contexts of deep human connection across various social domains. You’ll be empowered to invite and enroll others into these transformative spaces, fostering genuine and authentic connections.
- Discover a clear sense of purpose and mission in the world. Through expertly facilitated practices and leveraging the group field, we will help you reflect upon and embody your essential values. Allowing you to align your leadership with authenticity and purpose.
- Develop your capacity to facilitate relational spaces, cultivating coherence, trust, and shared perspective. You’ll gain the ability to name the unspoken and create a container for collective growth and transformation.
- Embark on a profound journey of living and breathing Authentic Relating alongside our staff and fellow participants. You’ll forge deep connections and contribute to the cultivation of a strong sense of community.
Throughout the course, you’ll have various opportunities to step into leadership and facilitation. Our Course Leaders, mentors, and fellow participants will provide valuable guidance and feedback, supporting your growth and development as an authentic leader. Together, we will lovingly explore and uncover any blind spots, distorted frames of thinking, or limiting beliefs, creating a new context of empowered and transformative leadership.
Level 3: The ART of Leadership invites you to expand your authentic relating practice, deepen your self-awareness, and step into your role as a relational leader and catalyst for cultural transformation. Join us on this transformative journey as we co-create a world of profound connection, genuine leadership, and lasting change.

The Venue - Mill Retreat Centre
The Mill Retreat Centre is only for groups who are working for the good in some form, this is to ensure a powerful and positive ethos. Examples of groups who use the centre are: environmental, charitable, creative, spiritual, religious, alternative medicine, Yoga and more.
Originally built in 1846 as a Camembert cheese factory it used the river ‘Bresle’ to power the cheese mixing process with an old hydro turbine located underneath the Mill. They are in the process of renovating an old 1880 turbine which has an extremely unusual design. It has a vertical axis and the turbine wheel is permanently underwater so it cannot be seen, even when it is in action. Even though it was built 130 years ago it is nearly as efficient as a modern design, an extraordinary feat of the European industrial revolution and we are currently in the process of setting up hydro electricity utilizing the original Mill works.
The Mill Retreat Centre is located in a spectacular setting with over 30 acres of grounds. These include a 10 acre lake with stunning wetlands habitat and over a mile of riverbanks, perfect for relaxing walks and wildlife spotting. With a 6 acre poplar wood plantation and a wide variety of native plants and trees, the grounds of the Mill are a paradise for a huge variety of creatures from wild boar and deer to water mammals such as otters and over 40 species of birds.
In 2008, 5 acres of the grounds were dedicated as a nature reserve to aid in vital conservation work, helping to ensure the continued survival and protection of many local species.
Whether you’re lounging by the fire, meditating on the grounds, or resting in your room, Mill Retreat Centre is designed to bring your heart and soul deep rejuvenation and well-being.
While the centre has much to offer in itself, the nature experience is the essence of the heart of Mill Retreat Centre. Take a walk in the forest, lay in the grass, sit by the pond, listen to the birds, grab a bike and take to the beautiful surrounding areas – Mill Retreat truly is an Oasis.
Mill Retreat delights in introducing the joy of beautiful vegetarian food made with love, that is sure to fuel your body and soul.
Their guestrooms, common areas and event spaces are simple, serene and gorgeous, designed with participants’ peace, comfort, relaxation and rejuvenation in mind. Bright and spacious throughout, Mill Retreat Centre is the perfect place to let your authentic self truly come alive.
