The Healing Earth Story

Ever wondered who and what started Healing Earth? Read this inspiring story about our Founder Elisabeth Brandt to learn about our humble beginnings and purposeful journey…

A Big Year for the Healing Earth Foundation

We couldn’t be more excited about what lies ahead for the Healing Earth Foundation in 2016.

Due to the overwhelmingly positive response and results we saw with our Yoga4Kids, Heal Your Life and Emotional Freedom Technique workshops, we have decided to focus primarily on these offerings, with a bit of mindful art therapy thrown into the mix to keep the creative juices flowing. In addition to this, we will be offering exciting new Nia dance classes to our beneficiaries in the latter half of the year.

Although we were supposed to start the year with a completely new set of beneficiaries, one in particular stood out as being the perfect partner for our efforts, and we will thus be continuing our Wednesday workshops at iHata Shelter for Abused Women & Children in Heideveld. Wonderful new centres we have added to our schedule include St George’s Home for Girls in Wynberg, and the South African Children’s Home in Gardens. We couldn’t be more excited to meet the new little souls, and can’t wait to kick-start the program next week!

Healing Earth Foundation Partners with SA Children’s Home

Next year will see the start of our Healing Earth Foundation workshops at an exciting new beneficiary – the SA Children’s Home in Gardens, Cape Town.

Home to 44 children, the centre is the oldest in South Africa, and aims “to care for, nurture and develop children in need, in order for them to become balanced, well-adapted and independent adults.”

We can’t wait to start our weekly Yoga4Kids, Nia dance, Heal Your Life personal development, meditation and Emotional Freedom Technique workshops with the residents!

Healing Earth Foundation Partners with St George’s Home for Girls

A new year means new beneficiaries for the Healing Earth Foundation, and we absolutely cannot wait to meet the young ladies at St George’s Home for Girls, one of the three centres where we’ll be conducting our weekly workshops for the duration of 2016! Here’s to the start of another beautiful journey of love, learning and laughter…

Healing Earth Foundation Yoga4Kids Graduation at iHata Shelter

Yesterday we held our Healing Earth Foundation Yoga4Kids graduation and celebration with the little ones at iHata Shelter for Abused Women & Children. The kids were so proud of their yoga certificates, and made sure that we will indeed be returning for more classes in the new year!
