HARMONIC RESONANCE

JOURNEY OF POWER TO SOUTH AFRICA

with Dean Liprini and Fleur de Wet

 Peninsula

A unique opportunity for nature lovers to experience the subtle forces that underlie and define the landscape, as we walk in the footsteps of the ancient Khoisan people

 

The Facilitators:

Dean Liprini will guide our journey.
Author of the book “Pathways of the Sun – Unveiling the Mysteries of Table Mountain and Beyond”, Dean investigates the energy grids of the earth by means of geomancy and archaeoastronomy, rediscovering the vibrational pathways (songlines) by which ancient sacred sites are interconnected.
Dean is the co-founder of the Sacred Sites Foundation, dedicated to strengthening the voice of the original peoples and to protecting and preserving the sacred sites which they frequented. Dean has been guided and counselled by Credo Mutwa, a widely known and well-respected sangoma (shaman) of the Zulu tribe.

Fleur de Wet will share the Circle Dances during our journey. She lives both in Argentina and in South Africa and has been teaching circle dance since 1997. She coordinates journeys, encounters and international dance workshops in Latin American and southern African countries.
The journey will be conducted in English, with simultaneous translation into Spanish and Portuguese.

JOURNEY ONE:
CAPE TOWN, CAPE PENINSULA and BUSHMAN’S KLOOF

 Ascension Cave
A First Encounter with Africa’s Resonant Song Circle Dance, Toning and Meditation

Walking in the footsteps of the ancient San people

On the Southwestern tip of Southern Africa, lies Cape Town and the Cape Peninsula. Due to its geological formation and make-up, it functions as a gigantic tuning-fork for the entire continent. It is made up of igneous granite rock with a crystalline matrix. Large quantities of silica, mica and quartz lie embedded within it, all are components of a transistor radio. Thus, the Cape Peninsula stands as a great receptor and conveyor of sound at the southwestern tip of Africa.

This gigantic geological tuning fork is activated through the primal energies of the Atlantic and the Indian Oceans. As the crystalline structure of the peninsular granite resonates, the frequency of its song is transmitted through the crystalline granite matrix of the bedrock and across the entire continent, travelling along energy pathways that connect to different vortexes, activating and intensifying the specific qualities of these sites.

Our purpose is to journey to the seven energy vortexes which are the Chakras of the Peninsula, Cape Town and Table Mountain. In these places we will add our song and dance to the tuning fork’s resonance, invoking personal and planetary healing and, at the same time, receiving the benefits of this resonance into our physical and subtle bodies. We will join our healing intentions to the great orchestra of its song. This is amplified and multiplied through harmonic resonance by the crystal grids throughout Mama Africa’s body.

During the course of our seven pilgrimages on the Peninsula and in the Mother City, we will honour and acknowledge the divine principles of the Feminine and the Masculine as reflected by the outer, and our inner, landscapes. By recognizing the universal union between these great principles, we can honour the divine Child in every living being.

After completion of this journey of alignment, between our individual Chakra systems and the seven energy vortices, we will travel to Bushman’s Kloof in northern Cederberg to discover the myriad of artful paintings left by the early San (Bushmen). This is a prehistoric legacy that lives on at the root of human consciousness. Dean will guide us towards a meaningful understanding of the ancient paintings.

Returning to Cape Town, we will linger in the timeless Fertility Cave at the top of Paarl Rock, to touch the birthing of our essential and pure human nature.

The purpose of our practices and dancing is to facilitate a spontaneous connection to this archaic consciousness.

Garden Route

Our purpose is to explore part of the antiquity of the human spirit, reaching towards a wider understanding of our greater being as we travel East from Cape Town towards the rising sun, along the great cornerstone at the tip of Africa.

The Garden Route has been home to our earliest ancestors. Dating back to more than 200 thousand years ago. Pinnacle Point (at Mossel Bay) is regarded as an extremely important archaeological site. Some of the earliest recorded engravings and rock paintings in red ochre have been found in this area.

At Keurbooms, some of the deepest shell middens in the world have been found, testifying to human habitation over thousands and thousands of years. Our pilgrimage into the remote past will end with a full moon ceremony at Cathedral Rock, celebrating humanity and our humaneness through song and circle dance.
