Hungry for positive change? Seeking new meaning?
We all reach points in life when we know that change is needed. When you need to make a breakthrough. Internationally renowned positive psychologist Professor Itai Ivtzan and integrative coach, and wilderness guide, Lutz Otto invite you to join this transformative immersive quest.
Perhaps you are seeking the courage to work past a crossroads, move past uncertainty or doing what your heart desires. Maybe you are wanting to build your self-worth, to heal or to explore your identity. Possibly you are looking for a renewed sense of purpose or living in a way that brings you deeper harmonious meaning.
These are times we could deeply benefit from an opportunity to step out of our lives to spend time in introspection, to learn, to discover, to remember how to trust ourselves again, and to do this whilst supported, and guided, by experienced professionals. Through this quest we will invite you to meet yourself, where you are, both in your shadow and in your light, and to deeply explore your unique reason for joining.
Now imagine doing all of this against the backdrop of magnificent central Greater Kruger National Park. This is our "Walk Your Why".
What is it?
A five-day, guided hiking safari, that has been designed as an immersive, catalytic and transformative journey. To meet your objectives, a deeply experienced team will ensure that the program gives you exactly the right blend of adventure, physical, spiritual and mental stimulation. To ensure that we are able to serve you, group sizes are limited to a maximum of 9.
World renowned positive psychologist, the founder of the School of Positive Transformation, author, and mindfulness teacher, Professor Itai Ivtzan [flying in from abroad] and integrative leadership and life coach, wilderness guide, and the founder of Spirited Adventures, Lutz Otto, assist and equip you with the insight, confidence and tools to work through your unique reason for joining. Each retreat is further accompanied by an additional wilderness guide to help keep you safe, and add lessons about wildlife, conservation and bushcraft.
What will my days be like?
Each day will start early. We will hike to a new campsite in the coolness of morning, and we will combine group work with time in introspection. Walking through the African bush is easily the most exciting and intimate way to see nature on its own terms.
The magical combination of the facilitated group sessions, the intentional process and the wilderness space, will allow you to shift into a state of deepened self-awareness, and create the psychological freedom necessary for you to make conscious choices.
We will work hard to remain focused on your "why" and reason for joining. The process includes positive psychology, cognitive behavioral psychology, psychological shadow work, trust circles, mindfulness, spirituality, breathwork, and movement. The sessions will provide deep and powerful insights into your life journey. Your bravely choosing to do the work we all need to, will allow you to engage your inherent wisdom, whilst realigning your heart and mind. We can promise you that this bucket list immersion, is an excellent way to find wonder, perspective and reconnect to self.
How will it change me?
The benefits of being in nature have been widely studied and are many. Now add to these the additional benefits of working with the combination of a psychologist and a coach. You will return home more confident and relaxed, having made progress in working towards your unique why, what comes next for you, and with a deeper understanding of where you are in your journey towards your self mastery.

"Wild places have an incredible power to inspire, influence and help shape who we continue to become. Much like the metaphor of the “the mirror and a glass”, their energy allows us to reflect on the memory of our journey and the vision of where we want to go, and why" Lutz Otto
