You are invited to an uplifting and informative day in nature learning and experiencing the healing power of African medicinal plants. We begin the day by meeting at the Faraday traditional medicine market in Johannesburg where we explore the use of African medicinal healing plants, buying samples of plant medicines and discuss their uses in African Traditional Healing. After this market tour, we go through to the beautiful and peaceful Klipriviersberg nature reserve (Mondeor South Johannesburg) 15 minutes away, to experience the healing power of plants and nature. After a bite to eat at the entrance discussing the plants we found at the market, we go on the 4km hike into the hills where we learn how to identify medicinal and edible plants, and South Africa's most popular traditional healing plants like African wormwood (Artemisa afra). We also explore how we can heal with herbal and other natural medicine and experience how to re-connect to nature through interacting with the plants, meditating in nature and absorbing natures healing essence. People love this unique experience, that leaves them feeling happy, revitalized and inspired.
