Breath Water Sound in collaboration with the Department of Correctional Services

The IAHV South Africa held a “first of its kind” Breath Water Sound (BWS) course in the Vaal Region; collaborating with the Department of Correctional Services, under the guidance of Mrs. Anita Hanekom, as well as two other NGO’s (Iskcon Sandton who provided the food and The SpiritLife Prison Church who provided the venue) in order to make this course possible.

The BWS course, held from 26 to 28 February 2019, targeted current prison parolees, probationers that were identified by DCS, as well as affected members of the community… with a total of 240 individuals being led by AOL and IAHV volunteers Chintz Bhana, Gavin and Melissa Huber, Manoj Dayal, as well as Dan Bhervia and Dr. Mohanlal Patel.

10 community upliftment projects were initiated and monthly follow-ups will serve to guide these initiatives to become the success stories of tomorrow. Similar programs will be run every 6 weeks.

Breath-Water-Sound Sistahood Project

The team facilitated a Breath Water Sound workshop for the Sistahood Project in Imizamo Yethu in Hout Bay.

It was a great pleasure to do a Breath Water Sound workshop with the Sistahood project in Imizamo Yethu in Hout Bay. The Sistahood was started ten years ago to keep girls age 14-18 in school, to help them with their schooling after-hours and to broaden their horizons. There was a beautiful transformation in the girls. Now they drink lots of water, eat less sugar and say they feel calm, more patient and destressed. They loved the games, the La La sound vibration and the deep rest they got on this course. It was wonderful to collaborate with the Sistahood and to have their hardworking facilitator, Thuli Nobexe, participate as well. Thank you to Deanne, Judith, Sandra and Delphine for volunteering their time and to Karina for the donation of reusable pads. We are visiting today for a follow up, just in time for exams!
