Nambwa Tented Lodge

The Forgotten Art of Healing Retreat

“Are we truly home in our own body and mind?”

“Do we have a habit of seeking distractions in order to run away from ourselves?”

“What are the root causes of anxiety, loneliness, and fear that are preventing us from realising our ideal self?”

The Forgotten Art of Healing is about cultivating true presence, ease, and joy in our daily lives by developing the energy of mindfulness, concentration, and insight.

We invite you to immerse yourself into a sphere of healing energy at Nambwa Tented Lodge nestled high amongst majestic trees, honouring the elephants’ right of way below. An authentic walkway joins ten decadently spacious tented suites, which emanate a feeling of vastness and evoke a gentle balance of serenity.

Dusty and Tinolla will be your hosts, together with their experienced team and Dr Wolfgang Henckert as your facilitator, for an enchanting retreat that merges you with the grandeur of the natural environment.

Join Wolfgang Henckert on this 5-day transformative retreat in the Bwabwata National Park in the East Zambezi Region of Namibia, that will allow you a profound (re)connection with yourself and other participants while being awed by Mother Nature.

Unplug from civilisation, practise self-awareness and meditation, tap into Wolfgang’s accompanying book on Navigating the Noosphere – The Forgotten Art of Healing and his transpersonal approach across various domains to hold space and allow for a safe and nurturing environment. Allow this non-duality teacher to guide you through essential practices developed by Wolfgang or based on other tried and tested approaches to restore peace, well-being and healing in your body and mind.

Healing Meals

We are here to create a transformational safari experience that focuses on actively improving your wellbeing with fun, immersive wellness adventures. To support your energetic or physical release during the retreat we ensure our menus are fully balanced when it comes to micro and macro nutrients.

Our fresh ingredients are sourced from The Sijwa Project, our sustainable conservation project located along the banks of the Kwando river, where we pride ourselves with the strict Permaculture principles followed from planting to harvesting. Appreciate Wolfgang’s teaching and wisdom, and savour lavish fresh vegetarian food prepared for you each day by our local Chef or be initiated by Wolfgang into a Breatharian lifestyle (by fasting).

Allow us to cater to your specific dietary requirements by advising our reservation consultants upon booking.

Wolfgang Henckert

Wolfgang is a non-duality teacher, therapist, and author. Born and raised in Namibia, Dr Wolfgang Henckert expresses a lifelong interest in natural healthcare and metaphysics, with qualifications in TCM, osteopathic manual therapy, EFT & Matrix Reimprinting, shamanism of the Munay-Ki lineage and Kriya yoga of the Yogananda lineage, with many additional certifications in various energy medicine, spiritual, and metaphysical modalities to complement his non-duality teachings.

Wolfgang is passionate about a holistic approach to healthcare – integrating manual, psychological, information field medicine, energy and Traditional Chinese Medicine modalities with a grounded approach to orthomolecular, functional, and integrative medicine, to unite multiple approaches and hold space, move energy, and facilitate The Forgotten Art of Healing.

Anticipate an inner journey that is embedded in pure nature so that you may come to appreciate the sounds, smells, and liveliness of Mother Earth. When you come to enjoy the ecstatic silence of the bush, blending your energies with that of Nature, a plenitude of animals literally walk right over you. Experienced guides will take you on carefully selected game drives, game cruises and bushwalks, nurturing you to find the magnificent presence of Now. At any given moment, you will have ample opportunities for introspection, silence, sharing, caring, releasing or just being.

  • Participate in simple yet profound teachings and exercises to take good care of yourself, cultivate love and healing for yourself, others, and all of Creation featuring specially curated guided meditations, inspiring exercises, relaxations, and teachings.
  • Dive deep into the workings of your mind, and learn about guiding the creative power of your mind, listen tenderly to your inner voices, and come to understand the wounded inner child in yourself, your parents and ancestors, thus opening the path of healing via various pathways.
  • Join the spiritual updraft of generating a collective energy of mindfulness and awareness, allowing you to hear, learn, and connect deeply with consciousness in its various embodiments.
  • Kickstart a deeply healing and transformative spiritual practice that has the capacity to purify and release your past sufferings and bring back the joy of being alive, transcending your limited view of your existence as a separate self.

This tailor-made healing retreat will allow you a profound (re)connection with yourself, other participants, and Nature. Unplug from the throes of civilisation, practise self-awareness, meditation, move from judgement to compassion, from separation to inclusion, and come to understand THE FORGOTTEN ART OF HEALING in a safe and nurturing environment. The location shares Wolfgang’s ethical principles of eco-friendliness, sustainability or regenerative use of resources and is booked exclusively for your journey.

Chakra Meditation 2

Immerse yourself straight into the wilderness with a hard to beat back-to-nature experience in the Bwabwata National Park in Namibia. You will be taken on sensitive and amazing game drives and boat cruises while safely grounding in an estuary of meandering waterways that carefully move you through pain or layered and unresolved stress responses, nudging you to relearn just being present in the moment. Enjoy the sounds and smells of the bush as well as ecstatic moments of silence and plenitude among the animals. Be awed by African sunrises and sunsets while pampering yourself with a curated meditation or energy healing session. 

“'Slow' and 'down' are modes of the soul; they are connective modes, ways of keeping connected to oneself and to one’s environment. 'Slowing downwards' refers to more than simply moving slowly, it means growing down towards the roots of one’s being. Instead of outward growth and upward climb, life at times must turn inward and downward in order to grow in other ways. There is a shift to the vertical down that re-turns us to root memories, root metaphors, and timeless things that shape our lives from within. Slowing downwards creates opportunities to dwell more deeply in one’s life, for the home we are looking for in this world is within us all along. The lost home that we are seeking is ourselves; it is the story we carry within our soul.”
