“Spiritual awakening refers to a shift in consciousness, an apperception of reality which had been previously unrealized. The culmination of such realizations is in the recognition of oneness with all of existence.”

At Londolozi we believe that the restoration of the planet will come out of a profound shift in human consciousness. For too long now humanity has been separated from the natural world, consumed by consumerism and lost into a rampant hyper individuality that creates a feeling of scarcity and disconnection. Yet in spite of this, humanity is now undergoing a great awakening whereby individuals are seeking and finding new ways of existence.

Here at Londolozi we are a part of this great awakening.

Awakening to our place in the interconnected web of life.

Awakening to a way of being in relation with all sentient beings.

Awakening to new systems of living in harmony.

Awakening to the beauty of the natural world.

Awakening to the innate intelligence of life.

Here we live with a deep intention to connect every person who visits Londolozi to a new consciousness.  A consciousness in which we awaken to the deep truth of our place in the unfolding field of life.

How fortunate for Londolozi that you, Rich, can tell its story in the most beautiful ways. You (and all the Londolozi family) make my heart ache for a return. One of these days . . .

How beautiful. The voice, the imagery is representative of what it feels like to visit Londolozi. Spiritual awakening is what I have experienced each time I visit and the reason I must return. Words can’t describe it but your video comes pretty close

This video is so amazing, it really strikes a cord with me. For me, it embodies everything of what I imagine Londolozi to be, a place of unity, harmony, untamed beauty and wild encounters. The harmony with nature and the understanding of oneself and how we are all connected is I think the primary reason I am so fascinated by Londolozi and why I am dying to go there (it even beats my drive to be among leopards and to photograph). I feel that if I get there, I will understand who I am more and revitalise that connection to the bush that I feel like I lose in the city. Every day, I feel like the lowveld is calling out to me and I want to heed the call, but I know it will take time.

I get goosebumps every time I watch it. I think maybe the fact that our ancestors came from the bush is one reason why I feel such a strong connection to it (despite the fact that I have more fingers than bush trips that I’ve been on), I have that desire to reawaken that connection to the land and the wildlife and myself.
