Michael Howard hosts the Umoya Trails Spiritual Experience on a plush hillside in Magaliesburg.
A labyrinth of trails criss-crosses the mountain side, concealing meditation havens waiting to be discovered amongst hundred year-old wild olive trees and pre-historic gorge geology. Mystical secrets from the birth of humankind give themselves up gently here as the Fish Eagle’s call sweeps souls away on the eternal song and dance of the universe.
Michael says about the Umoya Trails Spiritual Experience, “I still get goose bumps when I walk here. There’s something mystical about this hillside. So, we designed the trails and the havens to give our visitors an unforgettable experience of The Seven Aspects of Spiritual Intelligence* – an experience that should enrich their lives.”
The adventure starts with a short introductory talk by Michael at the base of the trails. He introduces The Seven Aspects of Spiritual Intelligence and how contemplation works at the meditation havens.
Then visitors embark on a silent trail walk, stopping to contemplate an aspect of spiritual intelligence at each meditation haven along the way. They are free to go at the pace that suits them and to revisit the same havens again if they want.
