What an extraordinary gift of opportunity is has been to be part of this pilgrimage to South Africa led by Mbali. Mother Africa always touches deeply into my being but this trip was exceptional.  Mbali comes with and leads the group with unbroken, sacred relationship to life.  The depth of her integrity has built and holds genuine relationship with the true indigenous people of this land. Her commitment to open the door and to invite us into the hearts of these First people, their truths and ways is a humbling and life changing experience.  The journey is a continuous ritual of honouring and being honoured.  Destinies are woven together, our common humanity and the one purpose that we all share is awakened and grounded as we hold place with the great shamans of this land, as we reverently enter into the powers of sacred sites, as we are met and penetrated by the potency of the elemental forces of the Kalahari desert, as we spend sacred time with the White Lions and as we are sung in so many ways by the people of this land.  The magic was with us and we became the magic. We also shared in the joy of beholding and supporting each other in the deep personal transformation that was gifted to each and all of us. My heartfelt thanks, honour and love to all that enabled this sacred journey.

Your facilitator of Our Divine Medicine~ Return to Origin Journeys 
I  was born in South Africa and left when I was three years old for London where I  was raised and educated to Post Graduate level in Therapeutic Bodywork at the University of Westminister. 
 I later settled in the USA, where I met my spiritual teachers. In the USA I worked in a major medical institute where I devised rigourous progams and group process for Massage programs sought by other hospitals in the country. I am an HIV counselor, and have worked with addiction.  I also voluteered in San Quentins men's prison where I assisted with relationship building work. 
 I am  a Keeper of Ancestral Wisdom, and answered the call to become a diviner. My medicine as a healer was gifted to me by the Dagara people of West Africa and elder  Malidoma Some, Shaman and Educator.  I have been a guide and practioner in the Healing Arts for over 30 years. I am also a healer, ritual and ceremony leader,  creator of Sacred Journeys and master group facilitator.   
I  was called back to South Africa after 59 years, and  answered another calling to  train in the traditional healing medicines of South Africa. I was named by Credo Mutwa, High Sanusi from whom I  still receive transmissions. I am  a desecndant of the Amaghebe clan of the Xhosa tradition and Tembu tribe and  also a descendant of a Khoi Khoi healer,and the Shangan peoples. The last name given, Buvalele, a Xhosa name which means "one who opens the way for others"

The Original Eden, South Africa 

 Please join us on what will be a truly memorable journey! 

  This journey invites all who participate  to re-remember our ancient connections and reconsider how we as humans fit into the natural world as authentic living beings, our origin, by re- connecting  through interspecies communication. We will be in communion as we once were and can still be with our nature beings, plants and species.  We will be working with exceptional Wisdom Keepers, Master Guides and Animal Communicators, Anna Breytenbach, Craig Foster and Alwyn Myburgh. In Cape Point with Anna and Craig we will immerse in a pristine landscape, breathe the cleanest air on earth and be transported into a truly magical world. 

In Botswana, a deep nature safari, like no other awaits us. Craig will join with Alwyn Myburgh who has years of intimate knowledge of this area and his relationship with the land and animals is reminiscent of the old indigenous masters.  Our journey begins at the gateway to the Okavanga Delta. We set up camp on the edge of the Kwai river where the wild animals are still concentrated.  We are wedged between world renowned parks Chobe National Park and Moremi Game reserve. From elephants to wild dogs, hippos, and dwarf mongoose, every sighting a gift, every animal a privilege to witness every communing a prayer. We will be accompanied by Kwai Bushmen who will walk with us and share their knowledge of tracking. They are known as the river Bushmen and still have a deep seated knowledge of the bush, its animals, plants and medicines.  
   "The south coast of Africa is the wildest place on earth, not because it is dangerous but because it is the address of the first human family. It holds the memories of human wildness. This is the original Eden, a land of extraordinary coastal beauty and underwater golden forests stretching out to sea. This was the crucible that gave birth to wild, fully aware humans. Their lives were astounding beyond our wildest dreams. This experience is created to realize our human design, to walk a little in their footsteps and to marvel at the power of the human animal" -Craig Foster 
"We will explore our ancient ways of knowing, engaging with intuitive communication with the landscape and our wild relatives who live there. our deeply reconnective journey will open us to the wisdom and joyful dance of life." 
-Anna Breytenbach  

Join us on a Return to Origin journey of a lifetime to explore, discover and re- remember.   Welcome Home! Mbali

 Fly into CAPE TOWN Airport NO LATER THAN June 19.  You will be shuttled to your beautiful lodgings on the Cape Peninsula. Comfortable accommodation awaits you where you can rest and immerse your self in the deep peace of the landscape and stunning views. The early farm cottages lie at the foot of the Swartkopberge mountain range, surrounded by copious fynbos vegetation. Our other main house and cottage will be our community gathering place where we will meet and greet, share healthy fresh foods, cook around the fire, and share stories and ceremony. Behind us are the mountains and in front our view of False Bay is unrivalled. It is an idyllic space for our evening gatherings.  Integration and time for self is key for our relationship to deep nature.

DAY 2  
With Anna Breytenbach,  we embark on a discovery of the art and practice of telepathic animal communication. Accessing stillness and connection, we expand our five senses and engage with the sixth sense of intuition. A fun day exploring the perspectives of wild animals in their natural environment. 
DAY 3, Cape Point withAnna  Bretenbach
We deepen the application of interspecies communication. We uncover the mysteries and interconnectedness of animals, plants and the elements. Finding ways to clear our channels of knowing, we enjoy a practical day of validating experiences and communications.
DAY 4, Cape Point Anna  
We will embrace our relationship with the essence of all life, and wrap the bundle of skills, insights and practices. Our time culminates in a celebration of Mother Nature and our own Nature. 

DAY 5 Craig Foster Cape Point   
We will be taken back 100 000 years in time, into the minds bodies and souls of people who were living in an extreme state of human awareness.  Welcome to your coastal family recreated from science and indigenous knowledge.  We will be invited with sacred intention and Craig's and Mbali's gentle teaching, to enter into the incredible waters of this pristine coast. (being a swimmer not essential, but helpful, all voluntary) With Craig's guidance we will  enter into a kelp forest to explore its wonder and walk the coastline, its ravines and caves.  We will create land art, and begin to collect our treasures to re create our own talismans and indigenous jewellery. 
Later we share our day, our insights and another opportunity to view Craig's incredible images, and begin to connect the dots of our Return to Origin. 
DAY 6 Cape Point Craig Foster   
The day opens with an introduction- Deep Water Connection.
We explore the land that Craig has walked for over twenty years. His intimate knowledge of Eden is a gift. We will meet some of the animals these indigenous peoples lived with and should they come, mingle with sharks in shallow waters. 
We will collect and create a feast of the food the peoples ate. We cook on an open fire on the side of the water, watched by the local baboons.   
Later we gather at our lodgings for stories and film night, where Craig will share his film experiences of extreme human animal communication.

DAY 7 Cape Point Craig Foster  
A time of re creation, stepping into our design we use body paints skins and jewellery of these early people. We learn to make our jewellery. We create an ancient image of ourself, a reminder of our design. A powerful exercise that will touch into our indigenous soul. 
Later we enter the Kelp forest, and reunite with the great mother. We picnic in caves and secret forests.
 Later we gather again for stories, images and celebration of our time together. We  prepare for our magnificent adventure with the wild beings in Botswana. We are armed with tools to communicate with them.    

DAY 8 Travel to Botswana   
After an early breakfast we fly from Cape Town to JOBURG, (2 hours) and then get our next flight (2 hours) to meet our guide and host,  Alwyn Myburgh in Maun, Botswana. From there we travel in open Safari vehicles to set up camp along the banks of the Kwai river, to the Kwai Community Concession managed by a local tribe called the Bayei.  Simple, comfortable large tents, (2 to a tent)  toilets and showers will be set up. Food and set up will be prepared by our assistant Kwai Bushmen and women. We will occasionally participate with the community in activities, cooking etc.  NO culinary skills required! We will immerse in the deep magic of an African Bush. Around the fire we share food, meet and greet.

DAY 9 Botswana Alwyn Myburg  
We will be situated between the Chobe National Park and the Moremi Game reserve where elephants, hippos, and a variety of animals roam freely (to name just a few.)  It has also become an important late dry spot where the animal stop.   We will meet a special group of men of San origin who will be in camp with us. They will share their extensive knowledge and wisdom, of how to track and spot, out on drives or foot. We will spend time interacting and learning from them.

DAY 10 

Our mornings may be spent learning about the plants and the medicines,  looking for wild foods as well as the abundance of wild life in the area. No hunting is allowed here, but a visit to the village and in particular a morning spent with some of the women will uplift our spirits.  They will share their stories of their heritage as Kwai River Bushmen who still have a deep intimate knowledge of the land and the bush. 
DAY 11

Alwyn has known some of these wild animals for years and he will demonstrate and share with us his intimate relationships. We will experience his profound gift of animal communication out on game drives or walking the land. Watchng the sunset over the Delta with the wild beings at the water hole is an experience that will remain etched in your bones. 
DAY 12 Botswana 
We awake at sunrise with the animals.  We learn to adapt to their habitat, become the animal, connect with our own wildness, true essence. 
 Our magnificent sunsets,  are spent with the animals, sharing an incredible language without words. Later we gather to hear from the bushmen, their ancient ways, ingrained in their bones. 
DAY 13
We spend the day in a ceremony of gratitude and deep remembering. Our last day with our guides, community and wild beings. We have lived the questions once bubbling. We have learnt to be in communion with the all species and elements. We are weaving our sacred relationships with the natural world.

 Alwyn Myburgh

I was born and raised among the red sand dunes of the Southern Kalahari in South Africa. My earliest childhood memories are of a time when we had descendants of the San living with us on the ranch, and spending endless days with them walking through the bush or on horseback, learning about the ways of the animals. I had the opportunity to learn so many things about nature at such an early age that I can't remember not knowing them. In other words, the gentle and selfless way the San people parted with their knowledge had laid the foundation for me to become a safari guide. And it has given me the opportunity to share some of my knowledge over the years with hundreds of people.

I started at a very young age in Northern Botswana - one of the last truly wild places left on the continent - doing an apprenticeship with one of the most reputable companies in the industry. Botany courses and Specialty walking courses are among the many areas of study that have helped me to broaden my knowledge base as a guide. I obtained a guides license quite early on and for the past 13 years I have had the great fortune of showing numerous international guests and renowned documentarians some of the most spectacular wildlife on the planet.

A safari is a journey and a journey with me through the wilds of the country will leave you changed. That's a guarantee.
