Join specialist spiritual guide Robyn Sheldon, on a journey of spiritual awakening through Botswana.
This trip takes pilgrims through the Okavango Delta and the central Kalahari, home to San Bushmen tribes who still live in a way that is very connected to Mother Nature.
The steady rhythm of the earth is so present in Botswana that it brings one back into alignment with their true direction. It is a place where one can walk in nature, meditate, rejuvenate and rest. In the evenings when one gazes up at the brilliant desert stars from the campfire it is easy to re-imagine the way we want to live in this world. This wilderness heals something deep inside of us so that our hearts expand widely enough to hold even the wounded soul of humanity.
Join Robyn and explore your connection to the earth so that you may find alignment between your life passion, your loved ones and your everyday life. This is a gentle retreat of nurturing our bodies whilst reconnecting with the natural harmony of our soul selves.
We will meet you on your arrival in Maun, Botswana on Friday the 21st of June 2019. After the first night spent settling in and beginning to slow down into a more natural rhythm that can begin to listen to the inner guidance of our dreams, we will leave early in the morning after a sunrise breakfast, to travel deep into the Okavango delta on Mekoro – canoes that are poled through the waterways. We will be sleeping in safe and comfortable canvas tents for two nights and will explore our connection to the stars as we sit around a camp fire in the evenings. The Okavango portion of the trip will include walks on the islands in the delta. The game that we invite into our encounters will hold symbolic significance which we will explore through our dreams and in group discussions. We will return to a beautiful bush-camp on the evening of Sunday the 24th to prepare for the second half of the trip.
On the 25th after an early morning game drive and breakfast we will head off to the border of the central Kalahari, where we will be camping close to a tribe of San bushmen for three nights, so that they may teach us about their connection to Mother Nature and the great spirits. The group that we will be working with still honour the old ways of their ancestors, and include a shaman / rainmaker / elder who holds sacred knowledge that is fast disappearing from the lives of the people of the central Kalahari. During this time we will continue with our own inner exploration of our high-paced urban mind states and how to bring them into alignment with the songs of the earth.
We return to Maun on the 28th of June in time for your flight out of Botswana, or for further bush adventures of your own choice.
