SPRING EQUINOX CREATIVITY GATHERING
FETCH YOUR LIFE FOUNDATION presents the inaugural SPRING EQUINOX CREATIVITY GATHERING.
A carefully curated weekend programme of guided artistic exercises, reflections and activities - both collective and in solitude - hosted in the countryside oasis of FARMHOUSE58 in the Cradle of Humankind.
The weekend will be facilitated by Msaki (art, visual journaling, song), Khnysa (breathwork), Keith Kunene (Life By Design) & Lesego Mapeka (Epic Hikes).
FETCH YOUR LIFE is focused on discovering ways to encourage people to move towards their purpose, aligning consciousness and creativity, with the hope of seeing people thrive in their true nature as creative, dynamic and expansive beings, directly connected to SOURCE.
The SPRING EQUINOX is an excellent time to prioritise balance, with day and night being exactly equal. The programme has a considered ebb and flow that allows for maximum activation, healing, renewal and reflection in a
short space of time. The 7 sessions include the themes:

Through two engaging talks and hands-on worksheets, the aim is to amplify awareness by delving into life-transforming methods of self-connection, nurturing a life lived from the core outward, thereby igniting a desire for results that are deeply intertwined with one’s purpose.

Lesego Mapeka founded EPIC HIKES, a business focused on conscious and transformative hiking experiences in Africa.
His journey began when he found himself stressed and at risk of depression, and he discovered that hiking and being outdoors helped him cope. He soon started hiking every weekend and during the week, seeking out hidden gems and meeting like-minded individuals on the trails. This led him to organise weekend getaways with friends and EPIC HIKES was born.
EPIC HIKES is unique because it focuses on encouraging guests to connect with themselves, others, and nature in a mindful and meaningful way. The hikes have been described as a safe space where people from all walks of life can find a space between an exhale and an inhale, gazing at a vista or looking inwards for a brief and quiet moment in nature.
