Walking Upon Mother Africa — April 2017

With Victoria More and Ruth Underwood
 April 20 – May 6, 2017

We invite you to an intimate seventeen day retreat on the move in the northeast corner of South Africa,  journeying to and exploring places of great spiritual power, renewal and natural beauty.

Most of the places we visit are located along the Nilotic Meridian, one of  earth’s major meridians that transits the length of the African continent. Many mystical sites such as the Giza Plateau, the Temples along the Nile, the Great Zimbabwe ruins and Timbavati, birthplace of the White Lions, lie directly on this meridian, as does the Blyde River Canyon.

The South African bushveld is an extraordinary place—unique in all the world—where the virgin bush is so vast and untamed that there are more animals than people. In this energy there are very few thought forms, which fosters deep and profound meditation and a great relaxation of mind, body and spirit. One can let go into the enormity of the inner and outer landscape and experience the mystical nature of the land and animals. It is difficult to describe and should rather be experienced – we have come to call it the African Dreamtime.

Entering into this Dreamtime triggers a radical dissolution of the separate mind and an awakening of inner silence, unity and inter-connectedness with the web of life. We perceive this to be one of the great gifts that Mother Africa offers to visitors from the Western world.

Those that come for this experience are brought to their inner core of stillness and reconnected with something ancient and primeval within themselves. Join us for this deep immersion into the African Dreamtime experience.

We start our journey in Johannesburg before leaving for a Bushveld Retreat centre in Mpumalanga province. From here we go into the Kruger National Park and then to the White Lion project before spending time in the Blyde Canyon area. Our journey ends with three nights at Garonga Safari lodge before heading home.

One of the highlights of this journey will be our time in the bushveld – the Kruger National Park is one of Africa’s largest game reserves. It’s high density of wild animals includes lions, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo as well as many smaller mammals, reptiles and birds. Here we deepen our immersion into the animal kingdom as we have the rare opportunity to walk with experienced rangers in the wild. This gives us the opportunity to learn about tracking, and absorb our senses into the tastes, sounds and sights of the wilderness up close.

Please see our brochure for more info and a detailed itinerary.
