A journey of self-discovery & deep healing
Conscious Connected Breathwork is a practice that allows us to access higher states of consciousness, reconnecting us with our true power and vitality, inviting deep healing, peace and abundance into our lives. Breathwork supports the most important relationship in our lives, our relationship with ourselves. It has a myriad of Physical, Emotional, Mental and Spiritual benefits.
For millennia, sacred Cacao has been used to help us connect deeply with our heart and all that we are. This natural and ancient plant medicine has high concentrations of vitamins and minerals, and is a powerful antioxidant. It increases blood flow to the brain and increases the release of ‘feel good’ endorphins.
Breathwork coupled with sacred Cacao – the beautiful handmaiden, gently
guides us into an inner journey, deep within the emotional center of our body. In a safe and loving space we draw on these ancient tools and practices, bringing the breath and the heart together for an incredible journey of self discovery and deep healing.
Every Tuesday :: Rondebosch :: 6h30pm – 8h30pm :: R220 per session

“The soul always knows what to do to heal itself. The challenge is to surrender the mind.”
This is a powerful healing modality, working with information from the quantum energy field to identify and heal deep emotional wounding, physical dis-ease and energetic entanglements derived from the challenges and traumas of our past.
Saturday 30th November 2019 :: 8h30am – 17h30pm :: Rondebosch :: Investment is contribution based (Guideline R650)
Workshop limited to approximately 10 participants
With the support of group representatives we recreate an existing dysfunctional system relevant to an issue presented by a constellating participant. We then use information provided by the energy field to reorder the dysfunctional system by gently unravelling and transforming emotional entanglements and blocked energies held within the system and/or the constellating participant. Reordering the system into functional flow in this way brings deep healing at multiple levels.
There is very little that cannot be resolved or transformed at the energetic level because energy precedes physical reality, and as such can transform it. This is a very powerful and profound modality and healing opportunity.
Some of the themes which can be healed through this modality include:
- Family and relationship issues.
- Business / abundance issues.
- Ailments and dis-ease.
- Addiction and self-sabotage.
- Lacking a sense of belonging.
- Depression and anxiety.
- Loss of loved ones and loss in general
- and more….
About the facilitator:
Volker Schlettwein is a life empowerment facilitator, offering a range of modalities to support positive transformation and healing.
Volker is passionate about inspiring and empowering people and systems, and has been specializing in positive transformation for the last 9 years, drawing on a wealth of experience from his own healing journey.
What participants are saying about Volker’s workshops:
“I have been telling everyone about it! I am blown away at how powerful this energy work is in shifting emotion. I have been doing all sorts of transformation work for 3 years and have been feeling stuck and depressed but it finally feels like something substantial is happening to me. I feel like a huge weight has been shifted and can’t wait to do another one.”
“You facilitated what could have been the most profound experiences of my life. For that I am grateful.”
“I cannot thank you enough! Wow! Such a powerful experience. I think you have an incredible gift for this facilitation. I’ll be joining you again for another constellation next year for sure.”
“The work that you do is beyond incredible!!!.”
“I attended my second family constellation over the weekend. No words can fully describe the experience as it is truly mystical. Our group of 8 all came seeking answers or closure on issues relating to family and loved ones. All of us left with a deeper understanding and empathy for our current situation and how our past and even our ancestors have influenced our lives today. By helping others in this process I learnt so much and am very grateful for entering this magical field.”

~ Check-in and opening ~
We check in to our accommodation and take some time to shake off the city vibe and relax into the peace and tranquillity of our magical surrounds. We then gather in the marquee overlooking the valley and the setting sun to offer our thanks and respect to the sacred land and its guardians. We briefly talk through the weekend’s activities and any logistics before moving across to the communal boma area to prepare dinner.
~ Dinner ~
We share a meal around the fire connecting informally as a group. Those who wish to can then enjoy some stargazing or a night time stroll before tucking in for the night.
~ Ceremony opening & group check-in ~
We consume the sacred sacrament, San Pedro, and become clear about what it is that has brought us to the weekend – what specific insights or healing do we hope to receive and take back into our daily lives.
~ Yoga session (beginners welcome) ~
Yin (slow movement) yoga, moving into poses with mindfulness and breath awareness to stretch the body, and prepare the mind for stillness and contemplation. The Yoga will also help to settle the medicine in the body.
~ ‘Medicine’ Walk – Stillness in nature ~
A medicine walk is like a short vision quest, during which one pays attention to the signs in nature in order to find one’s ‘medicine’, which in the Native American sense is anything that is healing and positive to the body and mind.
During a medicine walk, an individual finds a place in nature where they can be alone mindfully, walking, sitting and meditating. With your intention in mind, and being fully present, you find wisdom and guidance in nature by looking for symbolic meaning from the things you observe.
~ Fruit lunch ~
A fruit lunch will be shared. Fruit is complementary to the San Pedro experience and serves to further stimulate the energies of the medicine.
~ Conscious breathwork ~
Through the power of the breath, our bodies are able to instantly release physical tension and stress and ultimately old traumas, limiting beliefs and deeper emotional and mental patterns suppressed within the subconscious.
~ Introspection & reflection ~
We take a moment to reflect on the insights gained from the day in relation to our intentions and start to identify ways of implementing and grounding these insights and intentions into our lives.
~ ‘Silent Disco’ Tribal Dance ~
We flow from our true nature, in rhythm with Mother Nature, Father Sky and the Oneness of life, moving to tribal beats. This is experienced out in nature wearing ‘silent disco’ headsets.
~ Storytelling and dinner ~
We enjoy a delicious homemade vegan meal and share the ‘story’ of our day with the group around the fire. Storytelling is a tradition much revered by traditional cultures, as it ensures that the whole tribe benefits from individual insights and wisdom obtained. We also commit to one or more specific actions to support our intentions in the coming weeks. These actions & intentions are also shared with the group who serve to witness, honour and support our intentions.
~ Wilderness Walk ~
Those who are keen can join us for a wilderness walk through the exquisite Gecko Creek reserve. There are wild leopards in the reserve as well as magnificent landscapes and rock formations, including an ancient rock painting site and the infamous elephant rock.
What participants are saying:
“I have attended a number of ceremonies with Volker and highly recommend him to fellow knowledge seekers.
Volker has the gifts of kindness, integrity and strength. He holds a sacred space that allows you to go where you need to, with the reassurance that he will keep you safe. His work has helped me delve deep into my shadows, understand the path I need to follow and open my heart to the beauty that abounds.
I am so grateful for the medicine and the tools that he shares. It is an honor to attend his ceremonies.”
“Volker and Juanita have the ability to create space that is homely, safe, supportive, light hearted and loving. In breath work I have always felt utter support in processing what I need to at that time and in my San Pedro experience it was magnified. I loved the flow of what was offered, well thought out in terms of making sure we as participants got the most out of the experience. For me as always music is a big big thing and every time the music that has been presented has been breath taking, thought provoking, heart opening.”
“Volker and Juanita bring a beautiful combination of strength, care and guidance to a ceremony. They are fully present and always available to help during challenging moments, without judgement. The sequence of the ceremony is perfect to ensure that one leaves feeling grounded and complete. May their light touch the lives of many more people.”
“I attended the San Pedro ceremony with Volker and Juanita in Hout Bay. They created a beautiful supporting space which allowed me to have a truly heart opening and healing experience. I will recommend it to anyone that is struggling to cope with loss or grief.”
“Journeying with San Pedro alone has been nothing but incredible , I have thus far felt called back to journey with San Pedro three times.
I always feel that I am in a safe space filled with love and genuine support. I have thus far grown so much through journeying with SP it has surely opened my heat hand mind and expanded my awareness in a phenomenal way. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to Volker and Juanita for the opportunity they create to be able to do this work , I love the way that the ceremony is conducted, there is an approach of reverence, discipline yet at the same time there Is an amazing sense of freedom. I was completely blown away with the conscious breathwork, again such profound work and healing that takes place. it always leaves me feeling so empowered, ready to love myself and others, realizing what incredible beings we all are and how much gratitude there is to give.”
