World-Building with South Africa
March 7 - 14, 2024
Through participatory world-building (pwb), we reclaim our agency in crafting the type of world we desire. We learn through experience, which is unique for each person, and allow ourselves to find and refine the tools which we can carry back into our every day to co-create a world within ourselves - one that we'd like to see reflected back to us.
In the spirit of world-building, we travel to South Africa with the dream to dissolve the illusion of separation created by the Middle Passage. This is a gentle exploration. We embody an indigenous way of life under the guidance of Sangomas, or traditional southern African healers.
Prior to our arrival in South Africa, we will meet for two Town Halls to collectively make choices about some aspects of the itinerary and expand our tool kit for self-regulation.
While in the immersion, your guides will offer a daily intention as an invitation. Our curation provides ample space for autonomy and choice in how time is spent. The food program is designed to support energy levels and sustain our time together.
We begin in Johannesburg before traveling to an indigenous eco-village in Mpumalanga. When we arrive in Cradle of Humankind, our immersion container will expand to include local guests for ceremony, ancestral veneration, drumming, dance, magic and memory.
This is a right of passage, a sacred reclamation, a coming together in community guided by ancestors and the spirit of the land.
