• Students Coming from a Distance

    Lionheart classes are held in Los Angeles and designed for both local and long distance students.

    I’m coming from a distance. Where would I stay?

    Lionheart holds classes at the lovely Poverello Retreat Center situated on 10 acres of manicured lawns. The Healers Forum has its own private house on the property where our certification trainings occur.

    In addition to the classroom on the first floor, the Poverello house also contains a full kitchen and simple sleeping rooms on the second floor, which are available for rent for $60 per night. (Please note: The retreat has no internet access or television.)

    Poverello is a 5-minute walk from fast food places, restaurants and a grocery store.
