The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature.

We help our clients find and make the movements in the soul by way of shamanic journeys, integrating shamanism and indigenous practices with the best of western psychology.
Using various shamanic tools and psychological maps we support our clients to achieve their personal aspirations while navigating the challenges and obstacles along the way.
Our main offerings include Sweat lodges, Shamanic journeys, Enneagram system of personality, [Shamanic] Family constellations, Integrative breathwork and Ecstatic dance/ movement.
The sweat consists of four rounds, each honouring an element. We open and close with prayer. In each round we sit, meditate, sing, receive insight and healing and pray more.

The Enneagram is an archetypal framework that offers in-depth insight to individuals, groups and collectives. Consisting of three centres of intelligence, nine main Enneagram types, 18 wings, three subtypes and Triadic styles, the Enneagram offers a rich map to personal development from an open systems perspective. It does not box in people, but rather opens a pathway to self-discovery and greater personal awareness. (ref:integrative9.com)

Shamanic constellations is a psychotherapy to treat 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.

The intention is to give ourselves back to the intelligence of the body and deepen our discovery of who we are and what our purpose is. Here we can be moved by the medicine and spirit so that we can receive the insight and healing we may need.

Deep in our hearts is the desire to take the ultimate journey, the hero’s journey – to really drop into our lives and see what we are made of. Our purpose is to support this movement in our clients, an ever deepening surrender to the truth in the soul, to walk the path of the heart and to use the intelligence of the mind.
What are we made of? When we look inward we see that our bodies are the elements – we can know ourselves as Fire, as Earth, as Water and as Air. We can discover that beyond the confines of our conditioned self there is a mass of potential and this potential knows how to move us if we let it. We see that the same creative energy that gave birth to the universe lives inside us.
The irony of the idea of a journey is that the destination is both ‘now’ and ‘tomorrow’. There is work to do on ourselves and we do need to develop and grow. But it also helps us to recognize the unchangeable force that is our birthright and our original identity. In tandem they can walk, where the ego is nothing more or less than a convenient framework through which to express the divine sparks that we are.

Feedback from our clients
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.
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 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!!
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.
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
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.
