Day 1: Arrive Alice Springs
This evening meet the rest of the group over a welcome dinner.
Day 2: West MacDonnell Ranges
After breakfast you will travel to the West MacDonnell Ranges to literally immerse yourself in deep waterholes in several of the extraordinary gorges west of Alice. This afternoon is at your leisure.
Day 3: Workshop
After breakfast you will travel 40 kms south to the private workshop venue. This is a privately owned property spanning 600 acres with a desert backdrop of Alice Springs escarpments. Rugged, rocky outcrops great for safe private exploration and solitude. There are a range of accommodation options including double share cabins with en-suite, bunking in with others in a multi-share cabin, sharing a tent or sleeping under the stars in a swag. You will enjoy 3 generous and delicious meals each day.
Days 4 to 7: Workshop
Day 8: Uluru
After breakfast you will visit an ancient sacred men’s ceremonial site where the ancient laws are carved in stone. Ewaninga is an extremely powerful and important men’s place, the meaning of the carvings too sacred to share with the uninitiated.
You will then make tracks to Uluru which is a five hour drive away. You will stop for a classic Aussie roadhouse lunch (own expense). Further along you will lookout to Mt. Conner which is often mistaken for Uluru and walk the nearby sand dunes to see an expansive salt lake.
Depending on your choice of package you will be assigned to a twin or triple share room.
Day 9 & 10: Uluru
This will be your base for exploring Uluru and Kata Tjuta. The space between these two ancient rock formations is considered to be the point of the Earth’s third chakra, the solar plexus chakra known to be a healing place. You will spend time with an Aboriginal elder hearing about traditional Aboriginal healers (ngankari). The final day at Uluru will be structured around the most popular requests, possibilities include Uluru sunrise, walking around the base of Uluru, visit ritual places at the base or exploring Kata Tjuta. We will gather in the evening for a farewell dinner.
Day 11: Depart Uluru
After breakfast there will be a closing ritual before heading to Uluru airport for flights.
