Day Pilgrimage of Origin – Motherland MedicineNew Moon 4 May 2019 

Join this 1 Day Pilgrimage of Origin to drink in the Medicine of the Motherland. We will travel by private mini bus in the morning, leaving the city behind and heading over the mountain to the walker bay nature reserve. The Klipgat cave is inside this pristine nature reserve. Remains dating between 65 000 yr – 85 000 yrs were found inside this large cave and was found to be home to our first peoples. Evidence of herding fat tailed sheep were also found.

The Drup Kelders – ‘Drip Cellar’, is what the De Kelders area is named for. This ancient underground fresh water cave is a marvel to behold. Now privately owned and locked by the owners, access is given only via tour operators who charge a per person fee for entrance to this magical site. It is well worth the effort to enter this stalactite filled space, the ceiling is covered with stalactites that are still growing and the fresh water pools invite you to anoint yourself in this sacred body of water.

We are blessed to be joined by Bradley Yellow Man who speaks the original Nama language of the First peoples. In sacred circle our ears will hear and our hearts will feel the click language again. Together we are invited to open our hearts, ears and mind, to tune in and listen for ways that we can enrich our experience of self, our relationship to one another and to mother earth.

We will spend time in the Klipgat Cave together in sacred ceremony, our holy words will mingle with the air and the land, we will have time to a walk on the wide expansive beach, to visit the Drup kelders cave for a water blessing and enjoy a picnic before heading back to the city.

Our group is limited to 12 people for this journey.

Each pilgrim are asked to bring a picnic lunch to share.

Total cost of R1350.00 includes Full Transport with Driver in Private Taxi from the City to De Kelders and back, your Entrance fee at Walker Bay Nature Reserve, Entrance to the Drup Kelders Cave and Facilitation fee’s for Rah-Nomvula and Bradley Yellow man.

Please contact rah@divinelotus.co.za to secure your space in this sacred day blessing.

Please wear sturdy comfortable shoes, and warm clothes as Cape Town weather is unpredictable. Bring a hat for sun protection, sun screen, a swimming costume and towel for a dip in the ocean. We will share our food with one another in circle, please bring your shared lunch and any water, juice or tea.

I look forward to this sacred opportunity.

Warmest Love
