Equinox Activation Journey — African Songlines 

September 5th to 22nd 2020

 

A journey with Dean Liprini
Assisted by Tom Gingerich

This special tour is limited up to 11 attendees,  who wish to tune-in

and energetically harmonize the sacred sites along this powerful African songline.

This intimate, spiritual journey begins by anchoring our group energy at the northern end of the Drakensberg escarpment and listening to the messages the White Lions of Tsau! wish to share with each of us.  We then head down the “Nilotic Meridian”, to Mont-aux-Sources, one of the highest plateaus of the Drakensberg Range, and the highest waterfall in Africa, Tugela Falls.  We carry this ‘dragon line’ energy west to Kimberley, to the sacred petroglyphs of Driekops Island and to connect with the Golden Songline emerging from the Sacred Womb of Mother Africa “Bushmans Hole”  We then experience an overnight sleeper coach train, heading South, across the Great & Little Karoow, into the Cedarberg Mountains, here we experience two incredible nights,  in the sacred Bushmans Kloof Valley, with its shamanic rock art paintings. We continue our journey Southward to Cape Town, visiting the Sacred Hippo and Seed of Light on Paarl Rock, before reaching the Mother City and the majestic Table Mountain. 

We visit the Ascension Cave in Sun Valley, Pyramid All Seeing Eye Rock, The Great Motherstone, A local African Township with African, Healers drum and dance, finishing our final power activation with the Spring Equinox Ceremony at the Sacred fertility “yoni” rock temple site on the Little Lions Head mountain, and Great Motherstone for our final Sunset Ceremony.

 

Dean will share various shamanic rituals and trance-inducing techniques to walk the rainbow bridge, crossing through dimensions and epochs of time, always present in the NOW.

 

Tom will share his Breath work, to help us be more present on the journey and allow it to unfold in the most magical way possible. It helps balance our energy bodies and expands our field of energy. Breathing is absolutely essential to life, however it's often overlooked as a necessity for good health. Deep, conscious breathing is one of the most powerful keys to enhancing physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites our bodies to our thoughts.

ITINERARY

Arrival Day – Day 1 September 5th: City Lodge Hotel at OR Tambo International Airport 

Welcome to Africa!  Our journey officially begins at 19:00 local time with a Welcome Dinner in the dining room of our hotel.  Prepare for early departure tomorrow morning after breakfast. 


Days 2 and 3 – September 6th & 7th: White Lions of Timbavati

Nestled at the foothills of the Drakensburg Mountain range, is the Tsau! Conservancy of the Timbavati region. According to African lore, several hundred years ago, ‘a star fell to earth’ in this region, and the Sacred White Lions were born, along with many other white and unusual animals.  The Elders call these Lions, angelic star messengers.  It is here we begin our journey with a two-day immersion with the Sacred White Lions and Linda Tucker, the founder of the Global White Lion Protection Trust, as well as anchoring our Group energy into to the Nilotic Meridian that we will be following.  New Moon Ceremony on our second evening.

Day 4 – September 8th: God’s Window and Adams Calendar

Situated on the Drakensberg escarpment in Mpumalanga is a very special overlook.  Just one look down and you will begin to understand why it is called "God's Window".  From there we venture down the etheric “river of gold” to the  Barberton crater, site of first life and first gold on the continent., from Kaapsehoop

A  meditative sunset walk up to Adams Calendar and a small intimate ceremony at sunset.  Overnight at Silver Mist Country Inn in Kaapschehoop.

Days 6 and 7 – September 10th & 11th: Tugela Falls - Royal Natal National Park

 

After another morning dip into the ocean we head for the Majesti Drakensberg Mountains.

Here, we feel into the energies held in this area, working the sacred songlines along this stretch of the Meridian, as we ascend the energies of the Drakensburg. The Royal National Park is situated below Mont-aux-Sources, the highest point of the Drakensberg, and source of 4 major rivers that flow across South Africa.  Our Camp is directly below the Tugela Falls, the highest waterfall in Africa and second in the world to Angel Falls in Venezuela.  We will spend a full day immersed in the Spirit of the Source, and the sacred femnine.

 

The “Mountain of Sources”, is a very high altitude creative center.  Since many rivers have their sources at this site, it is a good place to bless these life-giving waters that flow across Africa, nurturing all life on its way. We hike up to the base of the falls, experience the womb birth canal. Cleansing and rebirth ritual.

2 nights at the Royal Natal National Park. Some pics above of our last adventure here in Dec 2018

The black glacial rock forms a natural shape of a huge black snake, covered by around two thousand shamanic rock engravings – making this one of the most spectacular rock engraving sites anywhere on Earth. Here Dean will share with you his insights to how these engravings were used in a rain making ritual. We will spend several hours there exploring and swimming and basking in the powerful energy created by the river and the rocks. Dean will hold a rain making ceremony/ritual he received insights to recently from the spirit of the bushman, who did these petroglyphs. Breath work with Tom

A Special Note from The White Lion Trust

“The unique White Lion monitoring experience at Tsau! is not open to the public and is offered to trusted Inner Circle people, as an authentic eco-educational and inspirational opportunity.

 

Please observe there is a strict protocol in respect of the reintroduction of the White Lions.  The White Lion Trust’s scientific monitoring vehicles do not intrude on the pride’s space, and ensure voices are kept to a whisper when approaching these high frequency beings in the wild.  We also avoid taking cameras, zooms or spotlights into their environment and instead enter into the magic of their natural existence and share its timeless beauty.  The contact with the White Lions is a non-photographic experience.  However, magnificent photographic studies of the White Lions and greeting cards are available upon request, proceeds of which are entirely given over to the protection of the White Lions in their natural habitat.

 

The Global White Lion Protection Trust is NOT licensed for the sale of liquor. Should you wish to bring your own alcoholic drinks you are most welcome to do so, however generally we prefer a “dry” camp.

 

Kindly note: There is NO guest Wi-Fi available at Camp Unicorn.  As a conservation organization we recommend that guests abandon the trappings of modern society for the duration of their stay.  This way the beauty and peace of our natural environment can be fully appreciated.
