The Town : Beaune, France

Beaune is the wine capital of Burgundy. It is an ancient town on a plain by the hills of the Côte d'Or, with features remaining from the pre-Roman and Roman eras, through the medieval and renaissance periods. The central "old town" or "vieille ville" is extensive. Beaune, located about 300km from Paris, is accessible by train.

The Venue : Les Hospices De Beaune

A gorgeous & iconic space in the heart of historic Beaune, France awaits. A hospital foundation from the Middle Ages, the Hospices de Beaune is one of France’s most prestigious historic monuments. Its flamboyant Gothic architecture, its polychrome roofs and a renowned vineyard make this museum one of Burgundy’s gems. The Hospices de Beaune is also famous for its 60 hectares wine estate, producing prestigious wines, sold at auction on the third Sunday in November. We will have a rare and exclusive opportunity to practice yoga and meditation with Yogarupa Rod Stryker and others in this iconic space as well as dine with all of the delectable food and wine the region has to offer. Yum!

Afternoon Break Suggestions:


*We have several suggested activities listed below and you will need to make arrangements for these activities prior to coming to Beaune and pay for them separately.

Lead with Love France is a unique offering carefully curated by locals Gaia Dancy and Diana Seysses and by Gina and Jerry Murdock who have spent over a dozen years learning the region and falling in love with the people, place + food and wine. It truly doesn’t get any better than this for world class road biking through the historic villages and vineyards + tasting flavors rich with the expressions of these storied hillsides home to the best vineyards in the world. This is a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of the unique beauty and culture only found in this region where for generations people have been caring for the land, plowing fields still with horses, and carefully selecting only the best ingredients for all of life - family, friends, food - a depth of experience like no other.

You will have an afternoon break daily at Lead with Love France because we feel S P A C E is so important. We encourage you to get out in the countryside to feel the magic of zipping through ancient towns on bikes or connect with a cooking school or walking tour of the region or just sit with a book or journal.

The Cause


You are what you eat! Lead with Love is a heart-centered, social impact organization committed to shifting culture from fear to love. As a registered Aspen, Colorado based 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, Lead with Love is dedicated to being of service and giving back wherever we offer our programs and retreats. We are delighted to be supporting Les Loups Bio in Burgundy, France to preserve a way of life where (wo)man and nature live in harmony and balance. The philosophy of Les Loups Bio is to follow nature, follow the seasons and to give back to the earth what we took from her. We will be eating from this incredible vegetable garden throughout our retreat! Food is medicine and supporting farmers who are walking the talk is so important. A portion of proceeds will be donated to make this wonderful project, started by Théo and Celine Loubet, more sustainable by purchasing tools and cultivating seeds. Les Loups Bio is a small operation with a dream of creating a “Farm School” in the region to continue to cultivate the sustainable permaculture practices that bring these vibrant vegetables to many restaurants and families in the area. Our intention at Lead with Love is to help Les Loups Bio move forward with the school and support their work.

Renaissance Revival


Farm Fundraiser May 11

We are captivated by the renaissance period and the revival of art and culture! We invite you to join us for a fantastical celebration May 11 to raise money for Les Loups Bio and to support Lead with Love and our work in communities around the world. If you know anything about our host Jerry Murdock you know he loves to throw a party and he loves to share great food and wine with friends. You will be treated to a captivating evening featuring the best wines in the world from the incredible cellar of Jerry Murdock, a man who has been entranced by this region for more than two decades and has the collection to prove it! Also featured will be a rare experience with the winemakers who made these incredible wines in conversation + food by renowned chef Johan Bjorklund of “Le Bistro”. 

Your contribution will help support a way of life that is critically important to the people of Burgundy & something we aspire to all over the world — to connect more deeply with land, people & the things we put in our bodies to sustain us.

Space is limited for the dinner and must be signed up for in advance.
