With permission from the tribal leader, we will drive to the Tzaneen region and visit a local tribal village ‚ÄĒ a place you can‚Äôt google. They are waiting to greet us with a welcoming ceremony with Pedi elders. We will stay here in local houses and become part of the village rhythm of life for a day and a half,Experience how 85% of South Africans live, in tribal villages where the purple realities of family, relations, and humanity are most important. Reconnect with your most ancient layers of self in this timeless environment! Local translators will be arranged for communication.

04 June - Local Shaman Visit and Big Tree Storytelling

Experience the local craft market. Spend the evening at Magoebaskloof Ruskamp, lying serenely in a beautiful fertile valley about 25 km from Tzaneen. Breathtaking views from the thatched a la carte restaurant make eating here a memorable experience.

While we are in the village a visitaion to the local sangoma (african shaman) is possible. You can spend some time with the traditional healer who practices in indigenous ways, including trance, bones, divination, and traditional healing. One can also get traditional medicine for personal use and recieve insight or guidance from the visit.

After the village we are heading to a turely spectacular natural wonder, the world’s biggest Baobab Tree! The Sagole Baobab, Muri kunguluwa (tree that roars), is the largest baobab tree (Adansonia digitata) in South Africa and the world. It is located east from Tshipise, in Vendaland, Limpopo Province. This giant has been carbon dated as 1,200 years old, but many local people believe the tree is much older, more likely 3,000 years old. This longevity together with its strength have given the baobab symbolic value throughout history. Many indigenous people believe the spirits of their ancestors inhabit the baobab and hence the tree often plays a central role in ceremonial rituals and sacrifice.

Inspired by the Integral European Conferences and by the tour that brings representatives of that community to Africa, local integralists felt the time was ripe to make their longtime dream come true: organizing the 1st Integral African 3-day conference! Join us to crown our journey with this integral feast Up From Eden, located where scientists believe we all come from, the Cradle of Humankind Archeological Cave site.
