THE 7-Day

Ultimate Year-End Retreat

Held in Sedona, Arizona

December 28, 2022 - January 3, 2023


This is your once-in-a-lifetime chance to release the "pictures of limitation" that have "developed in your mind" from 2022 and everything that has gone on in it…

And set yourself up for an amazing 2023

If you’re smart…

You’ll use all that’s happened THIS YEAR (2022) as the impetus to release “your picture” on what is possible for you going into 2023.

It really would be a once-in-a-lifetime MISSED opportunity if you don't release what's gone on this year.

And that’s why I want to tell you how to find the Effortless Path to Success and Life Balance… the Ultimate Year End Retreat (starting Dec 28th, 2022 through to Jan 3rd, 2023).

It only comes around once a year. At the end of the year.

And this year – with all that’s still going on — it will be more important to be on it than ever before.

Especially since the focal-purpose of the Ultimate Year-End Retreat is to…

Release all your "pictures of limitation" that have "developed in your mind" from 2022 and everything that has gone on in it

This is a HUGE opportunity for you.

Because together we will release all your disappointments about 2022.

We will release all your regrets.

All your accumulated fear.

Drop all your disappointments. 

Clear out all your “pictures” about what could have been and what should have been.

We will clear out the entire year.

Giving you an inner-freedom like nothing else can.

Bottom line is you will emerge from the releasing experience feeling like a NEW person.

Completely unburdened by what has been going on.

Free from any sense of “I can’t”.

This way your new year can be created out of "freshness"

And not (re)created out of fear or your accumulated “pictures of limitation”.

This will give you such a HUGE advantage over everybody else in life at this time.

Let’s face it, everybody has been affected by what’s gone on in 2022.

All the fear, insecurity, uncertainty and sense of limitation will stay with millions of people for years to come.

LIMITING their capacity to feel inner-freedom.

LIMITING their capacity to create their life anew in the future.

They will be at the mercy of their accumulated thoughts, feelings and pictures that they are (unwittingly) holding in mind.

They don’t know any other way.

They don’t know that it’s possible to release, to let go.

But you are different.

You are here on this page.

And because you’re here on this page, you have the once-in-a-lifetime choice to “wipe the slate clean” during the Ultimate Year End Retreat, enabling you to create your life anew in 2023.

Does that sound too good to be true?


That is evidence of a “picture” of limitation in your mind right there.

That is a limitation that is holding you back.

It will continue to hold you back and “keep you stuck”… unless you release it.

Needless to say, holding onto limitations is not a smart way to live.

Especially when you can release limitation after limitation after limitation at the upcoming Ultimate Year End Retreat.

Now that said, releasing the accumulated limitations from 2022 (or from any point in your life for that matter) is just HALF of what the Retreat is about.

The other HALF, the Success & Life Balance part, is about helping you to release on your goals for 2023 (and beyond).


The combined effect of this “two-pronged” approach is that…

Things that you want (but could never have or experience before) will naturally start showing up in your life

Life becomes so much simpler.

Without all the angst, doubt, frustration or restlessness most people live with.

You discover that when you focus on a goal (the “thing” you want to have in your life) and you have no subconscious “pictures” in your mind to the contrary…

The “thing” you want – or the life situation you want – shows up rather quickly in seemingly effortless ways

You see, here’s something you should know:

Ultimately, there are two approaches to life.

One approach (followed by 99% of people) is full of effort, trying to control or change circumstances to get what they want.

That is as exhausting way to live.

And it’s a constant battle to “keep up” with life.

The other approach is less well known, but infinitely easier.

This is the approach that we will teach you to live by at the upcoming Ultimate Year-End Retreat. It really is the Effortless Path to Success & Life Balance.

You could call it the effortless way.

You don’t have to fight or control circumstances.

Instead, all it requires is releasing (or letting go of) all the accumulated thoughts, feelings and mental pictures that stand in the way of what you want.

Then, when you hold true to your goal (or vision) and release all contradictory thoughts, feelings and mental pictures – guess what happens?

Life rushes in the give you what you want.

Sedona Founded 1902

Life itself finds a way to make it happen for you.

This is the way to live.

This is the secret of life’s greatest creators.

This is what Lester Levenson discovered (after exhausting – and nearly killing — his mind and body).

Listen, the world is in great upheaval.

2022 has been a year like no other.

A different approach to living is now required — more than ever going into the future.

The alternative is to get “pulled down” further by all the bad news and all the restrictive measures being enacted upon people.

It’s time to give yourself this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to joining us in the Ultimate Year-End Retreat (starting Dec 28th, 2022) to release all your “pictures of limitation” that have “developed in your mind” from 2022 and everything that has gone on in it.

That is the only way you can create your life from “freshness” going into next year (2023).

And that is the way you can start really living an extraordinary, abundance-filled life…

A life that you love…

A life that enriches your soul…

A life that is abundant in every sense of the word…

Filled with financial flow…

With plenty of time to fully enjoy your interests and passions…

Where you feel good about yourself…

And have a new energy and an “aliveness” about you that makes life exciting and enriching again.

It all starts with your choice to join us at the upcoming Success & Life Balance Retreat.

Everything else will start falling into place for you from that.

Oh, and throughout the Success & Life Balance Retreat you will also get to:

Are you ready to become a super-releaser who experiences huge breakthroughs and have amazing (seemingly impossible) gains?

I am talking about gains like...

Truly, the gains you can make from the Ultimate Year-End Retreat will just astonish you – check out the gains of people who have released with us at retreats:​

$250,000 Happens

“I keep going and going with releasing and today my new hire showed me a catering account that is $250,000 a year and appears to be ours for the taking. Wonders never cease.” - Joan Oliver


“Thank you so much for making this Retreat available to me. This is a hard thing to admit, but I’m 71 years old and have never been happy and/or content even though I’ve had a considerable amount of success in my life.

Now, after using The Technique only a couple of weeks, I’m ecstatic to report ‘now I have both.’ Believe me, no price could be placed on that.” - Vern E. Las Vegas, NV

New $10K client

“I received a signed agreement from a new $10K client. My goal is to allow myself to have seven mutually aligned, wealthy clients with ease by releasing. The add on to the goal that I am releasing on now is: $20+K in sept, $30+K in oct, $40+K in nov, $50+K in Dec." - Vera A

So Much Energy

"For the past 2 weeks or so I’ve been feeling S-T-U-C-K. Big time. I’d be able to move it, then I’d wake in the morning feeling more stuck than I was when I went to bed. Then last night, from the Retreat, something clicked with ‘I am not my body, I am not my mind.’. I’ve been doing it all day now. Feeling great. The body pain is almost all gone. I am on my way." - Stephanie Z. Waterloo, Ontario Canada

Significant Gain In One Week

“I have achieved the beginning of my goal to allow others to easily take care of my money and to grow it as I have a new manager and I like what he is doing and had a significant financial gain on Friday. I have dropped the belief that money is a big responsibility and burden.” - Suzanne McNitt

Clears the Way to 13K

"Releasing and beingness cleared the way once I stopped disapproving and being irritated about the situation. This brought in around $13k so far." - Jack A

The Highest Teaching

"This is the Retreat that reveals the highest teaching. I cannot recommend it highly enough, as it has taken me higher than I have ever been in my life." - Sonny R. Monroe, MI

Making $75,000 Per Month

“Last year I attended the live Retreat. I was totally broke and had difficulty making a living. I kept using The Release Technique and now I’m making $75,000 per month and going up each month.” Larry S." - South Gate, CA

Joy Spilling Out

"The Retreat is truly the marvel of life. I am a skeptical person (or I was!) and I didn’t think the course would do much for me, but now I am a believer—actually I know that this course is the key to happiness with no sorrow. Right now, I feel absolutely joyous—it’s spilling out of me—and it’s for the best reason, which is no reason at all. I’d like to thank you for your everlasting patience, love and givenness that Lester shared with us." - Foster B. Massachusetts
