ReVive, is a concept developed by Leigh Smith (Hogsback Events) in collaboration with Peter Colyvas (The Edge Mountain Retreat). “We wanted to provide a unique opportunity for visitors to experience the wonder of Hogsback; both its natural beauty and spiritual tranquillity.”
Hogsback is the perfect setting for this event, and the programme showcases an inspiring range of local and national speakers & interactive workshops. Each day begins with meditative walks, ancient Do-in, or yoga, and visitors can book private de-stress massages, or consult with specialist therapists throughout the day.
Dr Loretta Ferrucci, the popular National & International Speaker, Author, Teacher and Homeopath from East London, is the keynote speaker this year. She uncovers the underlying causes of disease and works to remove obstacles to healing. Her dynamic workshops incorporate teachings and practices that include Homoeopathy, Nutrition, traditional Chinese medicine, Jin Shin Jyutsu, The Human Pincode, and The Demartini Method.
The local community has got involved with inspiring contributions such as a walk to a waterfall where you can “Write your Heart into Place” with renowned Ecca Poet, Norman Morrisey and Silke Heiss. Margaret Fourie, best-selling author & motivational speaker, will help you “Laugh your way to Happiness” in her expertly facilitated Laughter Workshop experience. Shane Eades, from Terra Khaya, will share his practical & impressive knowledge and insights into Eco Building & Living. Lyn Spirit Eagle, has presented workshops in Europe, USA and now in South Africa. “Energy in your Dance of Life” will assist you in untangling energies and learning to move in a powerful flow.
Tracy Russell, a Transformational Coach and founder of the Wild Hearted rEVOLUTION from Cape Town, brings you Waterfall & Nature Workshops, where you can explore and experience more intimacy within yourself and others by connecting to the feminine principles of Nature. Activate your inner power and increase your capacity for JOY. Her workshop entitled “Silver lining of the Shadowman” begins on The Edge labyrinth with a poetry reading, and as dusk falls, you will have the opportunity to gently explore your own shadow self and regain your capacity for joy.
Internationally trained and experienced Spacial Dynamics Practitioner Thomas Muller, teams up with yoga teacher Cher Strydom, in a powerful and effective workshop entitled “Spinal Health”. They combine techniques from Yoga and Spatial Dynamics to facilitate personal development and healing through posture and conscious movement. These workshops examine the interaction of the laws of Physics & Life Energy that will transform the way you move through life.
Alexandra Johnson, is an Africa-trained Mindfulness Mediation Facilitator from Grahamstown. Her workshop teaches techniques of Embodied Mindfulness that allows participants to explore difficult emotions within a safe place of stillness & creative expression.
Bring a photo of your pet to Daphne Williams, Animal Whisperer, and hear how to restore health, harmony and that precious bond with your beloved animals. Discover the ancient art of Do-In (Japanese movement) guaranteed to relieve sluggishness and optimise health & well-being. You can also create a personalised aromatherapy product in her “Safe aromatherapy” workshop.
“We want visitors to have an engaging experience that will bring a refreshing to their souls”, says Leigh. “Hogsback Events was established to showcase Hogsback as a unique destination that provides an opportunity for connection with Nature, Self and Others. The intention is to host ReVive twice a year, so if you can’t make this one, get onto our mailing list (email: firstname.lastname@example.org) and plan to attend the next one in February 2016.
