Over the course of four days, you’ll be in a space where you can explore your highest aspirations.

Everyone speaks about purpose. Very few understand what it actually takes to access the power of purpose. Even fewer know how to create a purpose-driven culture as a leader. In this retreat, you’ll get clarity about your higher purpose as a leader, and you’ll get the steps for ingraining a powerful purpose in your business.” Peter Matthies

What others say

“Since attending your truly wonderful, practical, magical, life, and business-enhancing course, my life has followed an extraordinary trajectory in a way almost too big to put in words. Your course delivered beyond my expectations and was a wonderful experience in the magic that can happen when you feel safe to trust and surrender. I’m so happy that I found you and your work. Thank you.”, Catherine Butler. CEO. UK.

“This retreat was a boost of energy, humility, and depth. I can genuinely say it was life-transforming. The tools, people, and experiences will stay with me forever as a leader and have reminded me of the path I want to be on as a human. The Mandali environment above the Lago d’Orta is a perfect place to reflect on how to improve leadership.”, Dr. Jörg Puma. Chief Learning Officer. Singapore.

“The retreat exceeded my expectations: it started in a beautiful and intriguing way well before its official start, and it still resonates after the conclusion. Peter’s discrete and professional guidance made it possible for the group to form and express itself; the group developed into an open and frank forum for sharing of experience, seeking answers to the questions encountered in daily professional or personal life, and to generate new ideas. This retreat was a beautiful experience.”, Miro Prek. Former EU Judge. Luxembourg.

The Conscious Leadership Series will take place at Mandali Retreat Centre. Set against the stunning natural backdrop of Italy’s Lago d’Orta, you’ll have the opportunity to unplug, enjoy the beautiful surroundings, relax in the calming Mandali Body Care Centre, and find nourishment in the delicious, healthy and seasonal meals.

What sets this Program apart?


Being vs. Doing:
Most programs focus on behavioural change – which is unsustainable. This program expands your consciousness. Stop Doing more all the time. BE who you’re here to be and witness what unfolds.

Proven Tools:
For more than 10 years, the approaches in this program have been proven to work with individuals on 5 continents, in organizations – from 1 to 100,000 employees.

Build the business or career you love
Obtain a step-by-step approach for showing up as an authentic, inspiring leader, and for building a purpose-driven culture.

Expand your business and your career opportunities:
As you show up in a different way, discover who you can reach, and how people respond to you differently.

Join a global community:
Become part of a global community of conscious leaders and changemakers.

Transformation vs. Change:
We don’t work on change – to do something different or more of. We focus on transformation – on providing a completely new room of possibility you didn’t know existed.

By golly:
Let’s have some fun!
