I Dreamt of Africa

“I am not African because I was born in Africa, but because Africa was born in me.” – Kwame Nkrumah

Thank you to Healing Earth’s amazing business development guru Elizabeth Davie for being so perfectly positioned to look after our distinctive clients.

The Future of African Wellness Hospitality

We are honoured to have been invited to present on wellness in the African hospitality space at the prestigious annual THINC Africa Tourism, Hotel Investment & Networking Conference. Our lovely business development guru Elizabeth Davie will be inspiring delegates with Healing Earth wisdom and philosophy over the next two days. Here’s to sharing and connecting!

Essence of the Ethiopian Coffee Ceremony

No visit to Africa is complete without experiencing the coffee ceremony that is Ethiopia’s traditional form of hospitality. An integral part of social culture, the ceremony is conducted by a young woman in the traditional Ethiopian white dress with coloured woven borders. The process starts with arranging ceremonial apparatus on a bed of long scented grasses.
The woman brings out washed green coffee beans and roasts them in a flat pan over a charcoal brazier, shaking the pan so the beans won’t burn. Once the coffee beans pop, the rich aroma of coffee mingles with the heady smell of incense that always burns during the ceremony. To heighten this sensory experience, after the coffee beans turn black the aromatic oil is drawn from them, and the woman walks around the room so the smell of roasted coffee fills the air. She returns to her seat to grind the beans with a pestle and mortar. The ground coffee is brewed in a black pot with a narrow spout, known as a ‘jebena’, and enjoyed. We’ve combined the intoxicating aroma of coffee with the sweet scents of orange and cinnamon in our very own spice pamper ritual.

Ultimate Pinotage Overnight Ritual

Our powerful range of therapeutic Pinotage facial care products harnesses the qualities of the vitamin C and E, antioxidants, omegas and polyphenols found in the Pinotage grape. With an abundance of natural skin-repairing botanicals in the seeds, skin and leaves of the grape, Pinotage enhances the protective function of the skin.

As well as skin renewal, this helps to counteract the harmful effects of ultraviolet rays, cigarette smoke, alcohol consumption, drug intake, dietary fat and stress – all known as ‘free radicals’.

The Pinotage facial care range consists of cream and gel cleansers, a toner, polish, mask, eye creams, serums, and day and night creams. Here’s our ultimate winding down evening ritual (glass of Pinotage optional)…

Experiences of a Healing Earth Foundation Intern: Part 2

“I’m grateful for the opportunity of assisting the Healing Earth Foundation’s work at
the iHatha Shelter. After an introduction to the women and children and
observing the yoga classes, I got the chance to do classes for personal
development with the teenagers and moms in the second week. As I recently
finished my Masters degree in Clinical Psychology in Berlin and have been
part of a diagnostics and research team for trauma, I was excited to make
first experiences here in Cape Town and furthermore at such a special
place as the shelter. I was impressed by how deep the classes got into
very intimate and touching issues and by how open the groups were to work
with me. This was one of the experiences that assured me on becoming good
at what I’m learning and sharing it. Thank you very much, Healing Earth, for
letting me have that experience!” – Mira Assmann
