THE SOULPRENUR

Congo Safari

MAY 3rd to 17th 2018

WITH

MICHELLE RICHMOND and
NICOLE ESSELEN

KARIBU - WELCOME...

This is a call out to those who are ready to step out of their comfort zone, break new ground and experience the contrast of beauty and destruction, structure and chaos in the raw land that is the Congo.

It often takes an extra ordinary journey to realise the fullness of who we truly are, to own our courage, to witness the determination and bravery in others to realise it in ourselves.

Join us for 14 nights/15 days of SOULFULL EXPANSION through this breath-taking natural wonderland, encountering beautiful people; first in Rwanda and then in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Hey there, I’m Michelle, I’m excited to invite you to disconnect with the world and re-connect with yourself, as we travel this powerful journey with my beautiful co-host Nicole Esselen. I am a passionate advocate of SOUL-full expansion as the accelerator of quantum change. I love the freedom that’s created by quaking your current reality so you see the truth and be who you truly are. Exploring the fullness of human potential ignites me, challenging the status quo, asking deeper questions that allow the truth to shine and your soul to flourish.

I don’t profess to have all the answers, I do have the capacity to hold the space in the face of BIG moments of change, in a way that allows you to see yourself and life in new ways and excel.

CREATIVE ACCELERATION

Nicole Esselen who has called the Congo home for 12 years, is our beautiful co-host, a hidden treasure and an extraordinary woman who will inspire new depths of courage and possibility.

Opening doors to a world not often seen, taking us on a journey that will ignite a level of vibration that will lift you to new heights, allowing you to fly beyond the world you have always known, to be the person you’ve always known you could be.

REWRITE YOUR GENETIC CODE

Cellular Biology Professor Dr Bruce Lipton says ‘When you change your perception, belief and environment, you change your DNA.’

The powerful wonderland that is D.R.C. provides the perfect catalyst to do just that, to invoke change, to break new ground and connect you to the unwritten script that is your soul journey.

FREEDOM - JOY - PEACE

The ‘force of nature’ that is present in the raw contrast of beauty and destruction, structure and chaos in the Congo will move you beyond the parameters of your current creative capacity into the omnipotent wisdom of your soul.

This is an environment that simply cannot be replicated in the regularity of your life at home. We will explore stunning experiential learning locations which are chosen to incite new ‘seeing’, that will create new vision and new creations and to allow you to see yourself in new ways, often for the very first time

THE PHILOSOPHY

As Deepak Chopra says ‘Healing equates to a return to wholeness’. Which is achieved utilizing a unique fusion of spiritual philosophy, energy psychology and emotional healing techniques, allowing you to clear limiting beliefs and return to your ultimate state of being – LOVE.

The philosophy is to live, train and coach you to tap into an inner wealth that is freely available to you, so you can discover new dimensions of what fulfillment and happiness means and live a soulfully opulent life.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Expect the unexpected! There are no words to describe what happens on Safari, each journey differs from the rest.

The space is created to allow an invisible script to show up, one that has to be experienced, it cannot be perceived by the mind.

There is a beautiful expansion available to you, a profound connection that ignites joy, freedom and love.

When you simply say ‘yes’.

YOUR ITINERARY

The ‘force of nature’ that is present in the raw contrast of beauty and destruction, structure and chaos in the Congo will move you beyond the parameters of your current creative capacity into the omnipotent wisdom of your soul.

This is an environment that simply cannot be replicated in the regularity of your life at home. We will explore stunning experiential learning locations which are chosen to incite new ‘seeing’, that will create new vision and new creations and to allow you to see yourself in new ways, often for the very first time

Witness the contrast and destruction that reflects the worst of our humanity at the Kigali Genocide Memorial, an emotional place that will create disruption, trigger your senses and erupt your experience of yourself, as you begin to understand at your own rhythm the black hours this country went through.

ON THE ROAD TO GOMA

We hit the road to forage deeper into Central Africa. We will stop in Mugongo the house of an extraordinary American, Roz Carr. The place where Dian Fossey the famous primatologist, sought refuge when she needed a break from the harsh conditions in the nearby mountains. After she was murdered in 1985, a beautiful movie was set here,

« Gorillas in the mist » with Sigourney Weaver.

MUGONGO

Sigourney and Roz became good friends. Watch as she came back 20 years later to meet again, just after the genocide.

As we continue our journey west, we will be able to admire Lake Kivu in its far-reaching sparkling splendour.

We will enter DRC through Gisenyi-Goma border point by the lake.

GOMA

A LAND OF GREAT CONTRAST

Discover the capital of North Kivu and the ravages of the last volcano eruption in January 2002. We will take this opportunity to meet a few women in their homes built on the lava. 15 years ago, they decided to take risks, create change and take back the threads of their lives.

LAKE KIVU

Breathe in the beauty of this land as we travel by ‘pirogue’ to visit coffee plantations along the lake. The region is famous for its exceptional Arabica and we will visit a project launched a few years ago supporting farmers to produce better, wash and sell at a fair price. We will stay overnight at the local hotel, simple, locally run, charming.

ZIWA HOUSE

Our lake trip + visit of coffee plantation, enjoying a night similar to those than people enjoyed 30 years ago when they still lived out of cities. Fun of a different nature is the order of the day! We ride on the back of motorbikes, driven by enthusiastic young people who have invested everything they had to create change and build a better life. In the early afternoon, we will take our canoe (motorized) back to our lodge in Goma.

THE VIRUNGA NATIONAL PARK

Virunga National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, on the border of Uganda and Rwanda. It is Africa’s oldest National Park and the birth of conservation. Thanks to the dedication, perseverance and courage of the team looking after its treasure, the park is protected and every measure it taken to ensure its safety for visitors to come and discover its beauty as well as for the wildlife.

THE SILVER BACKS

Be prepared to be woken up by a concert of colobus playing hide and seek, blue monkeys staring at you, baboons fighting over God knows what or, if you are lucky, a group of chimpanzees jumping high in the trees.

It is time to wear your good
shoes, roll your socks over your trousers to avoid red ants and be prepared to face the Lord of the Jungle, the Silver Back Gorilla and his family!

SLEEP ON THE RIM OF THE VOLCANO

We are finally heading towards that glowing light that you have been witnessing for a week. The Nyiragongo volcano is part of the Virunga National Park and is one of the few active volcanoes in the world. Nothing to worry about, its activity is closely monitored. Let’s climb to the rim, watch and hear the lava lake bubbling, shooting and roaring. The show will take your breath away! We will spend the night at the top in purpose built huts.

TCHEGERA ISLAND

After 2 nights in the beautiful Lake Kivu Lodge, our body will have recovered from the climb up and down of the Nyiragongo and connection will have been made. You are ready for our next adventure. After having felt the power of the fire, lets feel the cooling down effect of the water.

RWANDA - KIBUYE

It is time to leave Congo and enter Rwanda again.

Direction, Kibuye driving along the lake and the beautiful Gishwati Forest.

We will be welcomed by Nathalie, a Belgian who has spent her life in Rwanda and even taken the Rwandese nationality.

She will take us through the hills and show us the beauty of her surroundings.

THE END IS JUST THE

BEGINNING

Many things you took for unchangeable will have changed.

Your mind will have shifted discovering the person that was longing to come out.

You will have dissolved all that no longer serves you into the African light, and have taken the time to become friends with the NEW YOU!

THE
EXPERIENCE

‘It seems as if what I’ve done in the past has been like going to kindergarten.

The SOULpreneur Intensive is like doing my PHd.’

Rob – 2016 Participant
