South Africa has a major role to play in the transformation of the collective consciousness of this planet. We believe it is now Her time. As the root chakra of the Earth, Table Mountain is a very powerful place and, being the base chakra of the planet, the issues facing South Africa and its people are primarily concerned with survival, overcoming masculine domination and issues of grounding (taking new steps). This applies both on a global and individual scale.
We see South Africa’s role on the planet right now as one of grounding a new level of consciousness based on spiritual values.
WE ARE EXCITED ABOUT THE CHANGES TAKING PLACE HERE AND IT IS THIS EXCITEMENT THAT WE WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOU.

 

Through their tribal customs and traditions African people still retain a link with ancient indigenous wisdom passed down over the centuries. Indeed, traditional healing is still far more popular among African people than western medical practices.

It is from this source of inherent knowledge that African people draw on to create change in their lives.
IT IS THIS SOURCE OF KNOWLEDGE THAT WE WISH TO SHARE WITH YOU.

 

Resulting from the miracle of transformation from Apartheid to democracy, South Africa has become an example for the rest of the world. She has set the energy for Forgiveness, Tolerance and Reconciliation, and to embrace each other in our differences. There is definitely a genuine willingness and consensus among the majority of people to learn to live this truth, to show the world that it is possible to live together in freedom of spirit. We believe this quality has its roots in the collective spirit of all but especially indigenous people and even more so amongst the women of Africa, who carry these precious gifts in abundance and whom are the backbone of the exciting changes taking place in this country. To live here means taking responsibility for your part and participating in this miracle.
IT IS THIS DEPTH OF RICHNESS WE WOULD LIKE TO SHARE

 

Africans are more community conscious and more aware of their inherent spirituality than people from the west. In her article “The Spirit of our Nation” South African writer Lee Minors writes
“ Spirit is often regarded by the Western world as something intangible and therefore unsubstantial. As something invisible and therefore not real. But what I love about Africa is that here we know that it is the other way round. The wisdom of my continent reminds me that Spirit lives in everything. In Xhosa the word for Spirit is umoya, which also means wind, or air. Spirit is the very breath of life, the animating force, our First Cause. Spirit is understood to reside in everything and to individuate itself in the process of embodiment. Therefore every tree and every stone is understood to have a spirit, a newborn infant has a spirit, every relationship has its own spirit, and every nation too”.

IT IS THE CONSCIOUSNESS THAT SPIRIT IS ALIVE IN EVERYTHING, THAT WE WANT TO SHARE

 

Perhaps it is this indigenous collective consciousness that is the underlying reason for the ease with which one is able to connect with Earth here in South Africa. Perhaps it is because Table Mountain, Cape Town’s most famous sacred site, is the Root Chakra of the planet that facilitates this connection. Or maybe it is because South Africa is the cradle of humankind from where we originate. What is certain is that the healing earth energy of Africa is raw, powerful and so easy to connect with at the many sacred sites. These sacred sites are alive and still used by traditional healers to attune to “The Great Earth Spirit” in times of need. There are sacred places of earth energy, water energy and star energy, and many mysterious sites like Nomkumbulwana’s Stones, The Great Mother Cave, ancient and strange rock profile alignments, the oldest archeo-astronomical site on Earth and the mysterious Footprint of the Heavenly Princess.
IT IS OUR PASSION FOR THE MYSTERIES OF THIS REMARKABLE COUNTRY AND THE EASE WITH WHICH ONE CAN CONNECT TO MOTHER EARTH THAT WE WANT TO SHARE.

 

The SAN BUSHMAN people, even though now unable to live in their traditional lifestyle, still carry the vibration of essence. They “hold” something that we evidently in our Western culture have lost or forgotten. It is such a delight being in their presence. That is when we mirror ourselves and get “lighted –up” where we have lost our innocence and sense of unity. The Bushman people are the oldest inhabitants we have on this earth and they are desperately trying to hold on to that special connectedness.

 

Then we have the wonderful ANIMAL KINGDOM. How to describe the richness of communing with these Beings that live totally in the wild, bringing out the wildness or authenticity in us. Living constantly in the NOW moment, the breathtaking African Wildlife provides the opportunity for us to be in the now too. To let go past or future and just BE.
The example they are for us, the communication that is possible with them and the way in which they just show up when we are in a state of gratitude is an immeasurable gift.
TO EXPERIENCE THIS JOY THIS BEAUTY IS WHAT WE WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH YOU.

 

So on all of these many levels, the richness of Southern Africa, of BEING together and experiencing this uniqueness; this very essence, this SPIRITEDNESS OF AFRICA is what we are passionate about sharing.
