Dreams & Tracking Retreat in the Kalahari Desert


  • Kalahari Desert Botswana (map)

A 7 DAY RETREAT IN THE KALAHARI DESERT IN BOTSWANA

A 7-day masterclass immersion in the Kalahari Desert with John Lockley and Alwyn Myburgh joined by special guests, !!Xo Bushman/San elders.

This is the first of its kind in modern times, with a sangoma & tracker working alongside one another to take participants on an inner and outer journey to connect to their wildness. Sangomas are dream trackers, navigating the inner worlds to bring about harmony in the natural one. Alwyn has been a tracker and Safari guide for over 23 years working alongside pioneers in the field such as Jon Young and Anna Breytenbach (animal communicator).
John has been a Sangoma (traditional African Shaman) for over 21 years and has pioneered the bridge between African traditional spirituality and Western Psychology.
Like the Bushmen people of old in the Kalahari, participants will be guided to the source of their being, the dream-time to reconnect with their purpose or calling in this life.

John Lockley's Dream Tracking will be based on his book 'Leopard Warrior' & Audio teachings 'Way of the Leopard'. The course will cover:
* Connecting with our Ancestors
* Animal Spirits
* Plant Medicine Ceremony
* Dreaming & how to connect with prophetic, teaching Dreams

Alwyn Myburgh's course will cover:
* Animal Communication & Interspecies Dialogue
* The Language of Birds
* Tracking
* Plant Medicine of the Kalahari Desert

Participants will be driven into the heart of the Kalahari for 7 days. There will be no wifi or modern facilities. Price will include all teachings, food & accommodation. People will sleep in special mobile tents.
* A percentage of retreat profits will go towards the local Kalahari San community to improve their life.

Each day will involve listening to nature, our dreams and following the tracks in the sand.
