we open ceremonial space  for our clients to receive insight and release what isn’t supporting them any longer. 

What we do

Sweat lodge

The Sweat lodge is a magical place that draws us back to the womb of the earth.

Here we find ourselves in remembrance with all life. There are 4 rounds with rest in between each. The lodge is an opportunity for a deep cleanse and reset. We open to insight that moves us towards what is most important in our lives. 

Enneagram

The Enneagram brings awareness to the patterns of behaviour that sub‐consciously drive and motivate us to act in certain ways.

We use the Enneagram as a key tool in virtually all aspects of our work. We offer Enneagram coaching for individuals as well as group trainings. Its an invaluable tool for relationships and self development. 

Elemental Movement

Ceremonial dance is way of giving ourselves back to the intelligence of the body so we can allow a natural movement to unfold. We use the elements to inspire the dance.  It is an opportunity to let go a little and be curious about what is inside that needs movement. For example, you might have anger, sadness or fear that can be given to the dance. In doing so we move though our challenges and find relief and a fresh perspective on the other side.  

Family constellatons

Family constellations is psychotherapy that treats body, mind and emotions through the soul. Combination of Native American and African Magical Arts: Sacred Drumming, Power Animals, Energy Cleansing, Smudging, Songs and Teacher Plants with Bert Hellinger’s Systemic Philosophy.

What our clients say

truly magical experience

This was a truly magical experience. It felt, as I moved into the week, that I was still dancing the elements, still kicking up dust, still under the trees! To be held in this sacred circle by Ryan and Leeane, Amanda and Willem and everyone present was such a blessing. I loved dancing with the medicine.

Delicacy is the best word to describe the work

I have been so blessed to have crossed paths with JourneyWork, and have done a fair amount of work with both Leeane and Ryan in the last few years.
I first met these two sincere human beings when I came for my first sweat lodge – and I totally fell in the Love with the way they work with so much integrity, support and compassion.
I recently did a private constellation with Leeane – DELICACY is the best word to describe the work Leeane did with me. It was a sensitive topic, a deep wound, and Leeane held both me and the Space with such gentleness. It allowed me to go deeper into my process around that particular wound than I’ve ever been able to do.
I feel we are all very honoured to have Ryan and Leeane doing this Work on our Beloved Planet at this time ♡

Still in awe of my insight from the family constellation

Still in awe of my insight from the family constellation at the skyfest! It was and still is mind boggling! The accuracy with which my situation was laid out in front of my eyes by strangers has made it so clear what really is going on and the gentle guidance by the facilitators was the healing touch I was yearning for. Thanks so much!!

Restoring our faith – Elemental dance

Just wanted to say thank you to you and Leeane for restoring our faith in plant medicine (amongst many other things).
BIG THANK YOU🙏🏼

Nirushka on our 7 week initiation program

I had been to many psychologists, leaving many sessions feeling like I had invested so much time and money and still feeling like I had achieved nothing in trying to overcome my depression and anxiety. I had often felt the sessions to be cold and impersonal. The antidepressants were cutting me off from my own emotions and left me feeling subdued, mechanical and lifeless.

Ryan and Leeane offered me more than just help with my anxiety and depression. They offered me a lifestyle and led me towards myself and my own inner guidance. They really took the time and tenderness to find out who I am as an individual and the core of my essence. I don’t think I have met any 2 human beings so giving of their love and support. They have been absolutely dedicated in their purpose to be a catalyst for healing.

For 7 weeks working with them, I felt an outstanding amount of support and compassion from Ryan and Leeane as I weaned off my medication. For the first time I had felt understood and treasured as they guided me out of fear and despair.

9 Weeks on and I feel like I understand myself better, with clearer insight into my patterns of conditioning and a full sense of responsibility over my life. They have given me tools that I will continue to use for the rest of my life.

Thank you Ryan and Leeane for all you do and the massive amount of support and love you’ve shown me. I will treasure this experience for a lifetime.

Love
Nirushka

Integrative breathwork (based on Holotropic method)

I recently attended an Integrative Breathwork session held by Heidi, Ryan and Leeane and cannot recommend it enough.I am very discerning and picky about who I work with when it comes to altered states and transpersonal healing work as I have had bad experiences in the past- but I felt so deeply held in this space. The three have an effortless synergy and they collaborated beautifully to create a solid and skillful container where I felt safe enough to go very deep.

Each one of them brought forth their gifts in a way that supported the journey and connected to the offerings of the others. I left the experience feeling very clear, heart centered and connected to my self and was able to bring this energy into all of my connections in the following weeks. If I lived in Johannesburg, I would be a regular attendee of this magic offering 💚🙏

Such an incredible journey of deep introspection

I am doing very well thank you. I’ve spent the past few days processing and gathering my thoughts and emotions after the ceremony.

It was such an incredible journey of deep introspection, a different level of understanding, learning and unlearning. It is really hard to put into words. Truly life changing to say the least. I have already noticed a profound an immediate shift that it has had on me and the way in which I now see the world. All in a very positive light.

I want to say a huge thank you to both you and Leeane for your dedication and commitment to bettering the lives of others. The care that you took in creating the safe environment in which to explore this opportunity is so much appreciated. I feel like I have such scratched the surface and am looking forward to taking a deeper dive into this world.

Amazed at the level of hidden dynamics that this process manage to reveal

Dear Ryan and Leanne

Again, I have to offer my deepest appreciation and thank you for the work that you do.

With all your workshops/ceremonies, there is an element of surprise, as none are the same, and every time I undergo a deeper shift in my spiritual growth.

The Constellations work you do is extremely powerful, and I’m amazed at the level of hidden dynamics that this process manage to reveal.

I’ve grown more spiritually in the last year with your assistance than what I have managed to do with other modalities over a period of twenty years and longer.

I am deeply grateful.

Gently and with a lot care they managed to help me find solid ground in the middle

Gratitude towards Ryan and Leeane for the amazing work they do with their constellation therapy.
Each one of us is in some form of struggle with an internal war. The polarity between opposites like: wants and needs, known past and unknown future or responsibilities and freedom cause a lot of discomfort and waste so much energy. Gently and with a lot care they managed to help me find solid ground in the middle . A place of peace from where I can move forward into a more purposeful journey.
