Let us welcome the weekend with a new beginning.
What makes this weekend extra special is the fact that we are able to see a total eclipse and the new moon in Jozi!
Be sure to join in with the Total Eclipse Lunar Festival this Friday. View the eclipse and watch the sky, become aware of the energy that the new moon may bring and become “woke”, whilst having some old fashioned fun with a sweat lodge, vegetarian food, flea market sales, tattoo artists, an amazing drum circle and talented fire dancers.
