by Leonie Dawson on May 25, 2016


Hola dear petals,

If it already wasn’t one of the raddest places to hang + grow your biz online, the Shining Academy is bursting with new content!

Couldn’t make it down to Canberra for our retreat full of wisdom, sisterhood, masterminding and more from earlier this year? Well, not only is there always next year (details coming soon!), I am so so so SO happy to release the entire 2016 Shining Academy retreat recording as a brand spankin’ new course in my Shining Biz & Life Academy!

Join me & my incredible guest teachers at the Shining Academy Conference 2016!

There’s a reason why 100% of our participants ranked their experience as “Happy!” or “Ecstatic!” for the conference.

There’s a reason why participants called it “world class” and “the BEST business conference I’ve ever been to!”

There’s a reason why we had people clamouring for next year’s tickets before they even left this year’s one!

Experience two days of world-changing content that will transform your business, your life, your mindset and your money!

You’ll learn intimately from Leonie in her largest offering to date – the full, professionally recorded 2 day intensive teachings. You’ll hear her speak with rare candour about her vulnerable stories, ridiculous analogies and honest inside goss on what it’s taken to create a multi-million dollar company. You’ll laugh, you will cry & you will finish these two days of training recordings with an incredible new sense of exactly where you are in business, and what you need to do next to grow your business… and do it with heart and soul.


It’s TIME for you to find out what level of biz you’re at with the 7 Chakra Business Model, and then FIX the blocks in your business that are limiting your growth with the 6i Success System.

The 7 Chakra Business Model takes your biz through the prism of the chakras, highlighting what’s important at each level + what’s not. Get comprehensive clarity on what stage you’re at, what you need to focus on to build ginormous success, pitfalls to be wary of and resources to help at every stage.

Use the 6i Success System to diagnose what your biz needs next, using the ingenious “6i’s”: intention, inner work, implementation, inner circle, invest in education + internal structures. Get the lowdown on the structures + systems your biz needs so that it can grow as far as your dreams dare!

Together, these two biz-changing courses give you a potent success portfolio that will:

  • Diagnose the obstacles holding you back from outrageous success,
  • Tell you exactly what you need to do to get to the next level of YOUR biz, and
  • Show you what NOT to do – all the things that won’t help you right now.

This is the epic course that’s jam packed with wisdom, raucous laughter + soul truth telling to inspire you out the wazoo to focus, then surge forward in your biz in the direction of your dreams!



“It was an amazing conference and I can’t wait to cut the crap out of my business of being an author and focus on what is my business!!!! I was amazed at how relevant the information was to me and how it’s changed the way I will manage what comes next.” ~ Cheralyn D.

“Feeling so full & inspired & implement-y (that’s a word, right?). So, so good to be surrounded by such wise, compassionate & vibrant women such as the Shining Souls in the Academy.” ~ Melissa P.

“Learning about the 7 Chakra Business Model & 6i Success System has been extremely valuable for my business.”

“Fantastic content, stories and information!”

You also get TWO BONUS workshops from the conference!

Denise Duffield-Thomas teaches an awesome bonus workshop on abundance and money blocks. I’ve known DDT for four years now – she attended a retreat I ran in the rainforest, and we’ve been business-sisters & mastermind-buddies ever since. This woman walks her talk like nothing else… in all the time I’ve known her, and as close-up as I have, she has been impeccable and authentic and always, always brilliant. I believe she is hands-down the best teacher on law of attraction in the world, and brings love, warmth & realness to the work of manifesting.

Kerry Rowett (my favourite kinesiologist) taught some powerful energetic practices to help you get over your stucknesses, align to your goals and create them faster. Kerry was another old coaching client of mine from four years ago who I loved working with to help her business grow. She is such an earth angel with bright, clear energy and a real gift. I started using her (and even sending staff to her) to clear blocks & achieve goals. It was so lovely to meet her in person for the first time after knowing her online for so long! She taught some amazing tools to help clear blocks… I love her to bits! Her bonus workshop is just brilliant!

My Wellpreneur Online Podcast Debut

by LDI Team Members on May 23, 2016


Hola gorgeous souls,

I was deeeeelighted to be a guest expert on the Wellpreneur Podcasta podcast for health & wellness business owners.

The lovely Amanda dived deep into some interrogation questions about how I run my business & how I’ve managed to scale it into a multi-million dollar company… and the business lessons anyone can use to grow their own.

We chat about:

  • how I took my business from $30k to $2 Million revenue
  • what needed to change to be able to run a million-dollar biz
  • how I built my biz working 2 hours/day
  • how to get off the ‘working all the time’ treadmill that we can all get into!

As always, so lovely to see how my story and advice connects with others…

The 6i Success System is a comprehensive diagnostic tool to help you work out EXACTLY what you need to work on next in your business in order to take it to the next level.

In this intensive one day workshop, you will learn:

  • The “6i” success habits you need to see your dreams get birthed into the world.

  • The structures and systems your biz needs so that it can grow as far as your dreams dare.

With more heart-sharings, raucous laughter + soul-truth telling, let the magic of the 6i Success System clarify exactly where your current business growth blocks are + how to fix them!

Bonus: get to see exactly how the 6i Success System dovetails with the 7 Chakra Business Model to give you a compete picture of where you are in your biz, and precisely what to do next to grow it!

Listen to “AHA” moments, sacred spirit downloads, deeply moving Q&A sessions + sharings, and never-before heard storytelling from moi about life, biz, soul + work.

what peeps say about this course

“It was an amazing conference – I was amazed at how relevant the information was to me and how it’s changed the way I will manage what comes next.”
– Cheralyn Darcy
International best-selling author

“The 6i Success System is brilliant! One of the biggest challenges business owners experience when growing their business is information overwhelm and decision fatigue. What makes the 6i Success System such a unique and powerful resource is that it helps you filter out what is irrelevant to the stage of business you are at which gives you back so much time and mental space for what is important AND concisely shows you what to focus on NOW to make traction and create results. Thank you for this implementable business map that is going to serve for years to come!”
– Melissa Prince
Women’s spirituality expert
