VELA AFRICA RETREAT


VELA AFRICA
TWO WEEK ANCESTRAL RITUAL & CREATIVE RESPONSE RETREAT, SOUTH AFRICA

BEAUTIFUL SOUL, HAVE YOU FELT AFRICA CALLING?

NOW’S YOUR CHANCE! JOIN US FOR THIS TWO WEEK IMMERSIVE SOUTH AFRICAN EXPERIENCE.

African culture and Customs deal in magick daily and the world at large can sense it. Many people know it and do not speak of it. Many of us have always just felt it and known the magnetic pull to transformation that awaits our spirits there.

I am a South African man who has had the honor of knowing Africa from within and knowing it as an outsider and a tourist.
I grew up in a culture which calls upon the ancestors daily. In Xhosa culture (South African ‘Nguni’ clan) prayer and guidance comes from the ancestors. Ancestral names are spoken as our own identity and the ancestral realm is as real as the weather.

My findings are this.

Africa is magical because we still practice the ways of our forefathers, even in the fast paced boom of technology and construction we connect to our ancestry.

Ancestral rituals happen as casually and importantly as birthday parties, and they are held the way they have been for generations.


When our city lives show us dead ends and darkness the more intuitive ones of us who knew to listen when advised goes back to his roots to find the way forward when all is dark.
The answer is always the same:

“Go back to yourself” …

“Reconnect to YOU” …

“Make means to remember and embrace those that paved the path you now walk” …

“Back to those that gave birth to the ones that gave birth to you” …

“Those that bled the blood you now bleed” …

“Those that are you” …

“GO BACK TO YOU”...

And so we seasonally immerse ourselves in ritual, in custom and in honouring. We surrender  ourselves to process, remembering, reconnecting and embracing... ourselves.
We remember, in all that we do and all that we are … WE DON’T walk alone.  - Nyaniso Ntsikelelo Dzedze

We (Vela Souls) open this journey to a number of you who are feeling the call to this richness in experiencing depth of culture through traditional ritual.


*Those feeling the call to remember… Themselves.
