"Here I am, 22 days after returning from the journey, Return to Origin: Connecting with the Spirit of the San Bushmen, and I am still in the space of transformation and change that Mbali and Craig created for our group in South Africa. They have spent lifetimes preparing themselves to lead these journeys through South Africa. With the “trunk” of support that they established, we were able to take root in what is possibly the oldest cradle of humanity, drawing nourishment from our interactions with the land and the wisdom of her peoples. That nourishment flowed throughout our beings and set buds of change, which are flowering in the fullness of time.
In Loving Gratitude I honor Mbali and Craig as facilitators of the highest degree, beings who are able to hold sacred space and establish deep roots for all who journey with them in South Africa."

"To be part of this trip will be a life changing experience that will stay in our hearts forever. Deep down the echoes of our ancestors revealed the ancient wisdom to reconnect with our true nature. We feel humbled with gratitude to share the gentleness and wisdom of our unique guides during this unforgettable lifetime journey. "

"This journey touched upon layer and layer of my psyche while held beautifully in community and throughout have sensed the holy spirit as powerfully present. Now off to Botswana fully present. "

"Our African journey was incredibly rich and has opened new worlds for me that were previously unseen. I developed a deep connection with the Natural world the animals and plants . I was particularly struck that cold adaption was part of our original human design, which most of us have forgotten. I remember the shock of entering the cold water and the warmth after a few second, of being filled with joy and spontaneous laughter. The whole journey with its variety of interactions with Nature and its animals the ocean and its wild beings made me realize that we are part of nature not separate from as I had previously thought, and when we are part of nature we also feel deeply connected with each other."

"An amazing journey into the origin of our species. “A” list facilitators, Anna Breytenbach, Mbali Creazzo, Craig Foster and Alwyn Myburgh took us back 100, 000 years to the roots of mankind. An amazing experience with a great group of soul travellers. "

"My personal experience, understanding and input of/on ‘’the Journey’’, I can sincerely say I had a true heart & mind engagement & spiritual connection. It was truly a conduit to greater self-and awareness of others, the greater living environment, as well as spiritually enlightening & personally transformative. I felt at one with ALL the people I was involved with & the land on which we shared the Journey. I was wholly immersed in the ceremonies, traditions/culture & places we visited. It is the only way one can genuinely be absorbed in the fullness of the practice/experience such as this! The ‘form of the Journey’, ie…logistical arrangements, catering, sites visited/used and holistic thoughtfulness, as well as the amazing places within which the Journey is designed & shaped is really mind-blowing! As a divine healing experience, the Journey has a very meaningful role to play in people’s/communities/societies/the world’s healing & restorative processes."

"Walking in the tracks of Bushmen life with Mbali and Craig was an experience of a life time. Their knowledge illuminated the journey bringing into focus the importance of ritual, ancestors and the spirit of wilderness in all our lives. Each day was an adventure finely tuned in every detail - always with an open end for spontaneity or weather -
a delight on many levels. There was total trust in the ability of Mbali and Craig - a sense of care for each other, of community and inter relatedness was quickly established. Like one we moved, acted and enjoyed but there was also a profound individual awakening and honouring of who we/I really was. A deep piercing experience where I was held and given permission and support to take my experiences further. Very inspiring and humbling to see how life changing rituals of integrity towards self and others opens the heart, creates compassion and encourages me to dance with life - this was the music, and a knowing in the heart that this experience will release all sorts of jewels as time and understanding develop - Thank you both for all that you put into it - I feel richer, more content and know that life is for living, being challenged and playing with the threads."
