You’ll be given ample opportunity to play with your intuition in the field during silent walking meditation, adventures and open-vehicle game drives. All under the expert guidance and facilitation of Sarah-Jane and our professional rangers at Singita Lebombo/Sweni in the Kruger National Game Reserve. Getting to know the wildlife intimately takes the concept of game-viewing to a new and profound level of adventure, empathy and awareness. For it is only when each one of us heals the old woundings within, that we can create a sustainable, thriving future for all creatures great and small and for the planet itself.

You’ve been told what to do your whole life: in school, work, and relationships. You have forgotten that you can ask questions and give yourself permission to say yes to you. In your heart you know there is more to life than this. You sense a disconnect from your body and know that if you take the step towards whole living for yourself,– the freedom to be the best version of yourself, that you will inspire others back to choice.

If this sounds familiar, join us for a Journey on Ancient Soil™ Connecting to Your Heart – Transformation Adventure Retreat.

“I did a 10 week being Human through Animals – inter species communication and bodywork online class with Sarah-Jane in 2013 and knew that I had to answer the call to Africa and come out and experience a Journey on Ancient Soil™ for myself. When my feet touched the ground at Singita it was like I knew it on a spiritual level. It truly was a re membering from the dark night of my soul to the joy of knowing exactly what I am here to do. Words cannot express what changed on such a deep level for me. I am beyond grateful for the many insights and gifts I received from the animals, from the land and from Sarah-Jane’s intuitive processes. I leanrt to love myself, met the man of my dreams 6 months after returning home and have my first book coming out at the end of the year — Lorraine Emmerson, Hobart New Zealand.

 

photo15Let the courage of the lions and the ancient wisdom of the elephants, the gathering of the buffalo herd support you in this 8 year of standing in your personal power and true nature. Come and find your inner peace by spending a few delicious days — in an intimate group of no more than 12 people — with the sentients as teacher along side Sarah-Jane, your personal mentor and creator of the popular Being Human through Animals workshop.

Let the stories and experiences of the local trackers and guides tell the story of their African roots, in one of the most magical places in the world: Singita Lebombo/ Sweni private Game Reserve in South Africa. On this  magical ancient soil, you’ll find that Nature and the sentients have been waiting for you. Waiting to show you the way back to your heart centre  – where inner peace, true purpose, and Diamond shine have been all along.

I love leading these journeys on Ancient Soil™ at Singita – one of the most untouched, enchanted places left on the Earth. Each sacred moment I have the privilege of being here, I am transformed at a deeper level and reminded just how much more heart there is to give, in all of us. To be the quiet observer of such profound shifts and deep transformation my clients experience and to watch them come home to their hearts, is truly the greatest gift of all.

“Working with Sarah-Jane via skype on her Facet VIP program has changed my life in so many ways but when you add close up and in person mentoring with the magic of Mother Africa and wild animals into the mix, it is indescribable what happens to your heart! The lessons from the Power of the Pride and how I applied that energy into running my business now is beyond belief. I have learnt to track my big life purpose with deep trust and intuition and the result have been remarkable. I have a profound belief now that through my work I can make a change to the world. Denise Rosenblum, New York, USA

LOCATION:

Singita Lebombo Private Game Reserve in the Kruger National Park, South Africa. Untamed, breathtakingly beautiful, and infused with the energy of spectacular wildlife including the Big 5, Singita Game Reserve is  a world-class ecotourism destination, that will bring you back to the heart of your true nature.

Visitors here experience deep fertile connections and personal interactions with the ancient soil and animals, birds and insects that call this home. Their ability to give, to nurture so generously and embrace the people who visit here, is breathtakingly rare and incredibly sacred heart space – this is Mother Africa.

ACCOMMODATION:

The lodges in Singita Kruger National Park were built on the promise to “touch the earth lightly”. This commitment has been manifested in the way the lodges were constructed; how they operate today; and how guests experience the wildlife and the natural habitat.

Singita Lebombo suites have been designed around the concept of an eagle’s nest, allowing for elevated views over the Kruger National Park , the rocky outcrops of the Lebombo mountains, and the area’s trademark Euphorbia trees. Singita Sweni, on the other hand, lies close to the Sweni River. This tranquil sanctuary is built on stilts with decks of dark timber, giving it a grounded feeling of being integral to nature.

Meet your extended “tribe” for your stay that are here to welcome you home to your heart and the place of miracles.

 

3:00 PM: High Tea and Introductions

“Tea” does not accurately describe the afternoon meals at Singita. You’ll activate your taste buds with an exotic blend of traditional South African teatime treats and nourish your soul.

3:30 PM: Coming Home to your heart

We will whisk you off in an open land rover in to the bush veld, leaving any stress and jet lag behind. You will know that you are home as you lean in to the gentle embrace of the ancient soil.

Through the field of resonance you will enter the space of surrender and total receiving, peace and inner calm.

10:00 AM: Breakfast and Morning “Being Human through Animals Inter species communication Session.
You will receive private verbal clearing  and activations within the group session by Sarah-Jane and learn an easy way to integrate and use the processes long after you leave the safari retreat.

12-3 PM: Mid-day Integration/Rest Break

It is so important to listen to your physical body and take time for rest, reflection and integration. The long haul travel taken to get you to this place, topped with the fresh air, African sunshine and a slower, more natural rhythm can sometimes be a shock to your body, so self care in the form of a cat nap, a massage at the Spa, journaling or quiet time on your private deck is a welcome necessity.

3:00 PM: Afternoon Tea /Game Drive

On this game drive, you will merge with the heartbeat of Africa and all of life itself. Through the “Peace” process you will heal the separation sickness and become one with your animal guides and Mother Africa.

We’ll enter in to the power of story telling with the people and animals you have engaged with during the day and the game drives. We will continue the discovery process through experiential introspect and energetic clearings.

Day 3 : The Power of the Pride

6:00 AM: Walking safari – footprints to your soul

photo11

“What you seek, is seeking you”.

“In this chaotic world of busy ness we often lose track of who we are and what we most desire. On this guided walk, you will learn to notice the subtle cues from nature through the broken branches, fresh droppings and animal tracks so that you can find your own personal footprints and adjust your course to get where you want to go in your life. Through the energy fields of all things equal, you will expand your range of perception and awaken those signals from your body, to engage and receive messages from your surroundings so that you can create your phenomenal future. You are multi sensory and through observing predator and prey you will be able to apply the lessons and the power of the pride to your every day life, no matter what jungle you are in.

photo12

10:00 AM: Breakfast and Morning Session

We will debrief with the morning’s trackers and learn how to apply the subtle cues from nature so that you can begin to create your life in resonance with your core desires and presence.

Lesson from the lion pride:

“The success of the team is because of the individual and the success of the individual is because of the team”.

Nature knows how to market itself or else it would not survive. In the age of Leo and Aquarius, awakening time is coming to surrender separation and know the energies bigger than you. You will begin to viscerally understand how using lessons from the pride will increase your communication skills and deepen your relationships. We call this heart selling!

You will learn to feed the wild fire – to stand in the fire of your personal power and move through obstacles and challenges with ease and grace. Nature will provide you with the support and cues to receive everything as a gift—so that you can stand in your truth and translate that into your own personal ability to see resistance and doubt as a catalyst to problem solve and be the greatest version of yourself that you came here to be.

You will take home a different point of view about the death and how to go beyond grief and missing you beloved human and animal companions through gratitude and allowance. A guided meditation to amplify your intuitive process and connect with your animal guides and loved ones will conclude this session.

11:30 AM:

Using Akashic record, team players, spirit guide and animal totems to deepen our understanding of soul contracts. Just like people, animals come in to this life to contribute change through soul contracts and their own agendas. We look at the ranking system and our own moral dilemma on life and death choices. As the women of the old world tribes ask the western women: “Why are you not telling your men when to stop taking more than you need?” How can we individually choose to be the guardians not the destroyers of the planet? Embrace your own avatar in this intense but necessary session and soften your heart even more.

3:00 PM: Afternoon Tea/Game Drive

Facilitating animals and the Earth. You will learn specific body processes that you can use from a distance and hands on, to contribute to healing. We will clear any limiting beliefs, attitudes and considerations that go beyond separation. How we can heal ourselves by clearing judgments, hierarchy and ranking systems across species, including the human design to compare, suffer and make yourself less than someone or something else. We will use verbal clearings to assist mental and physical ailments including abuse, PSTD and behavioral issues.

6:00 PM: Dinner/Fire Circle

We will integrate the lesson on soul contracts and seed thoughts by exploring why animals choose us, their purpose and lessons with us including past lives and soul contracts with us. Blessing for the collective species from farmed animals, elephant, lions, whales to the wild dolphins who are urging us to wake up even if it means suffering and extinction.

 

Day 6: Receiving Your Practice

6:00 AM: Final Game Drive, Breakfast and Celebration, Gratitude and Envisioning Your Future Session

photo15

Whatever your personal insights from the Journeys on Ancient Soil™ and Singita experience, Sarah-Jane and your tribe of 12 will ground what you have shared together in to your body and assist you in continuing your communion with each other, the land in continuing to practice and sustain your heart connection to your True Nature.

We’ll send you off with group photos, heartfelt gratitude and a lifetime of memories, pragmatic tools relevant to your core desires and map for your phenomenal Diamond class life.

Once Africa gets under your skin this is not farewell, rather a knowing of “until we meet again….’

What if you realized that you are the possibility this planet has for creating a world beyond judgment & destruction as a necessity?

We trust you will emerge inspired and energised and with a deep longing to return.

11:00 AM: Plane departs from Johannesburg to Singita

Here’s the thing about Journeys on Ancient Soil™—you will be in Africa with an entire TRIBE, an extended family at Singita, Lebombo completely dedicated to creating a magical, mystical experience for you. So while I am giving you a rough guide on what you can expect on your adventure, please know that this incredible team at Singita and I ask that you go with the natural flow of life and let go of form and structure.

As we say here in Africa – everything happens “just now”…… meaning that here in this incredible place, everything is exactly how nature intended. Come with a childlike curiosity and an open mind and let Mother Africa wrap you in her warm embrace. You are totally supported and we are here to give you the best experience beyond what you could ever imagine. This truly is a place where magic happens.

Journeys on Ancient Soil™ was nothing I could have ever imagined possible. You think that watching Animal Planet is like being there but it is so far from the experiential hands in, heart open adventure I had. To have the blend of 5 star luxury, delicious food and the rugged wild outside my bedroom window is totally surreal.

My heart almost jumped out of my chest on the first game drive when the buffalo were so close I could feel their breath on my skin. And the incredible stories of the trackers, the laughter, the bright stars in the sky and the total allowance of this place will be with me always. Once I returned home it took me days to get used to how loud my world is. Jo-Anne Bee, Ramsgate, UK

1. How is Journeys on Ancient Soil™ different from other African safaris or retreats?

It’s always wonderful to experience the bio diversity of the African wilderness. However, Journeys on Ancient Soil™ takes you on a heroes journey inwards to Your True Nature and then, shows you what is truly possible, when you see your reflection in the outer world of Mother Africa through the 8 senses.

Journeys on Ancient Soil™ has been meticulously created to guide you back to your True Divine Nature and deepen your heart connection to all things. Through every moment – awake and asleep you will remember to trust, honor and re-discover the joy of embodiment that is your one, precious life. This is so much more than a commercial safari – this is a deeply rewarding, luxurious, heart based transformational experience like none other. No detail to your personal attention will go unattended or unheard.

2. What makes this trip out of this world extraordinary?

Aside from a conscious workshop intensive like no other, the Diamond of the ANCIENT SOIL™ experience is Singita itself. The people of Singita are the guardians of the land and the animals here and their motto is to “tread lightly”.

The ambience of this magical location is beyond words–that’s why we are all ( people, animals and nature) inviting you half way around the world to experience it for yourself. The animals intuitively know that there is an honoring and reverence towards them. Where so much of Africa and the natural habitats are fading, here the sentients are great teacher – their response always forgiving, generous in truth, always inviting us to wake up to our own True Nature. Singita is simply Heaven on Earth – your home coming.

3. Will I receive coaching from Sarah-Jane?

You will not only receive personal attention from me during the coaching sessions, we will also share many adventures, meals, stories, celebration, laughter and vulnerability together as a tribe. This sacred space and energetic support of the land and animals is perfect to do the kind of deep, personal transformative inner and outer work I am called to facilitate.

Though animals regularly pass through the camp, no one has ever been seriously harmed at any of Singita’s lodges because every precaution is taken to maintain your safety and that of the animals.

13. What kind of clothes and shoes should I pack?

Since September/ October is the beginning of Summer in South Africa, it will be hot when the sun is out and can get rather chilly in the early mornings and at sunset, so layering, a warm hat and a pair of gloves is recommended. The atmosphere and Singita is very casual and dinner is outside under the stars, so dressing for dinner under the big starry sky can get quite fresh so layers are recommended.
