SOLD OUT! GET ON THE WAITING LIST – Yoga and Safari Wilderness Retreat – Tanzania, Africa – February 4th-16th, 2023

Description

“An Adventure Expedition that Will Enliven Your Mind, Body and Spirit”

Safari is the Swahili word that means “A journey.”  What makes a Healing Safari above and beyond a traditional African safari is that as you venture on an external journey through the wilds of Tanzania, you are gently guided on an internal exploration of your own heart and soul.

Embark on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure to the stunningly beautiful land of Tanzania and deeply immerse yourself in the healing energy of this bountiful country’s people, culture and nature.  Venture to an authentic “Out of Africa” experience for twelve magnificent days filled with yoga and meditation with the enchanted Serengeti as your backdrop.  Surround yourself with the natural wonders of this land and partake in the wildlife firsthand during a four day safari tour of the national parks to the north.

Experience travel in a completely different way from a fully embodied perspective as our reflective practices will clear the lens through which we see the world and ourselves.  The retreat begins with a full immersion of the local Maasai culture where we will delve into the ancient wisdom of these native people to learn about their practice of natural healing remedies and their deep connection with this precious land they call home.  Next, we will trek across the most pristine parks to track “The Big Five” and connect with the most exotic animals in the world.  We will spend our days ‘in the bush’, in luxury accommodations, resting in the womb of Mother Nature. Get in sync with the enlivening rhythms of nature as we wake to the sounds of the most mysterious birds, feel the rumble of elephants walk behind our tent, and hear the roar of lions in the distance. Our excursion ends in Zanzibar, where we will spend five days exploring this culturally rich island and relaxing on its pristine beaches.  No retreat is complete without a beach bonfire under the stars listening to the enchanting drum rhythms of Africa.
