overview

The African Bushveld is a sub-tropical woodland ecoregion in Southern Africa and one of the most mineral-rich regions of the world.

Modern life is tough. Filled with stress and anxieties that can be overwhelming. Low self esteem and imposter syndrome can erode both your self-confidence and happiness. But there is a solution. A way of being in the world that is calmer, clearer, more joyful and more connected. It’s called Mindfulness, and now you can immerse yourself deeply into this ancient, life changing practice in a unique five-day retreat in pristine bushveld.

This trip will take you on a guided hike safari in a Big 5 wildlife reserve led by thoroughly professional rangers and facilitated by Mark Joseph, one of South Africa’s leading mindfulness teachers and a partner at Mindful Revolution. Our Remarkable Transformer, Lutz Otto, the owner of Spirited Adventures and Consulting, one of South Africa’s most experienced wilderness guides, a coach and leadership consultant joins Mark in co-facilitating parts of this programme.The unique blend of proximity to nature and deep, soul-searching teachings all adds up to an experience you will never forget. This is a premium mindfulness programme and the combination of the experience, the practices and facilitation is world class.

Days will start with a compelling mindfulness practice before a hike to a new campsite in the coolness of morning. Then more mindfulness sessions including Awakening Awareness, Coping with Anxiety and Stress, Altering Perceptions, Balancing Body and Mind, and Aversion and Attachment. There will also be sunsets, campfires and laughter.

Based on deep research wilderness, adventure and movement is purposely used as a platform for these transformative immersions. The trails are not designed to be strenuous, however a base level of fitness is required. It’s important to note that this trip is not for those looking for a walking safari experience only. If you are feeling uncertain about this being the right choice for you, you can simply schedule a call here to discuss your concerns.
