Its flamboyant Gothic architecture, its polychrome roofs and a renowned vineyard make this museum one of Burgundy’s gems.

Gaia Dancy, Lead with Love France Event Curator

Gaia was born and raised in Paris, France and after working for more than 10 years in the film industry, she decided to leave the big city. Four years ago, she relocated with her family to a small village near Beaune, Burgundy, choosing a balanced lifestyle, access to nature, produce and good food for their family. Gaïa is now using her production and social skills as a consultant on different projects and events in Burgundy and Paris as you can take the girl out of Paris, but you cannot take Paris out of the girl.


 

The Cause

Lead with Love is committed 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. 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 and a portion of proceeds will be donated to make this wonderful project, started by Théo and Celine Loubet, more sustainable.

A portion of the proceeds and additional money raised from the Lead with Love France Gala will go towards helping Les Loups Bio purchase additional tools, produce their own seeds, and develop their sustainable permaculture practice.


 

Afternoon Activities

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. 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 be able to choose afternoon activities daily at Lead with Love France because we feel it is so important that you 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. Each activity is designed to bring you deeper into the culture of the place and connect to new and old friends. This retreat is designed to bring a sense of delight and wonder, to connect with yourself, others and place, and to commit even more fully - armed with skills and tools shared by world-renowned teachers - to lead with love in your personal and professional life. You will leave different than you came - lighter, brighter and full of love. We are committed to supporting the local culture on all of our retreats. Please join us for our gala dinner on May 11th to support Les Loups Bio featuring the best wines in the world from the incredible cellar of Jerry Murdock, a man who has been captivated by this region for more than two decades and has the collection to prove it! Space is limited for the dinner and must be signed up for in advance. Space is limited in all ways and accommodations for the retreat are not included. It’s imperative that you look at the list of recommended places to stay and book hotels as everything is booking up fast. We highly recommend you commit “tout suite”!
