leola fest

cape town, south africa     |      december 27 - january 3, 2023

You're invited...
Join me to celebrate another rotation around the sun in the sunny city of Cape Town, South Africa. Raise your glass to toast my golden birthday, as I turn 29 years old on December 29th... then ring in the New Year with champagne in my favorite wine region in the world. I would be honored to have you as guest of this co-created experience in the Cradle of Humankind, South Africa. 

To gather a group of likeminded souls for play & co-creation. We are so busy showing up in purpose, this is our opportunity to create for the sake of connection. While the intention is not to “teach” one another, this experience offers expansion & magic because that is inevitable when intentionally coming together as the dopest humans around.

This is a co-creative retreat experience. I'm asking each of our tribe to contribute a skill, experience, or offering to the group. Examples may include, a guided meditation, mini photoshoots, bodywork/massage, art class, dance or movement, face painting, plant medicine, etc.

In addition to this collaborative element, see below for additional proposed activities:

Aquila Game Reserve is 2 hours from Cape Town... I propose an optional day trip (additional $200) or overnight extension at the end of the trip!

Plant Medicine

My dear friend is a Cape Town local and mushroom shaman. His journey was my first... years later I did a subsequent journey with him, in which I got the download to start working as a tantrika. So excited to share his medicine with you.

Lions Head Peak and Table Mountain made me fall in love with hiking. The first time I did psychedelics was on the Mountain 5 years ago - pure magic.

Wine Tasting

Seriously the best quality and value you'll get when it comes to wine. Not to mention stunning views! South Africa is known for producing sustainable wine.

arts & Culture

Museums abound. Visit Robben Island where Mandela was imprisoned... the Silo Museum is my fave modern art museum in the world... galleries line Bree St. Issa vibe.

The beaches of Cape Town ruined beaches for me for a while. They're seriously THAT stunning, not to mention resident penguins at Boulders Beach.


It's my fave city in the world! I've visited 45 countries, and South Africa is one of the few places I consistently desire to return to. It feels like home. I've spent 9 months there in total over 3 visits and am itching to share this gem with the people I love most! Affectionately known as the Mother City, Cape Town also holds a special place in my heart as a great initiator of my spiritual awakening and purpose driven life.

Here's a bit more from my retired travel blog:

Set at the edge of the African continent, where humans took their first steps on land, Cape Town intimates visitors to recover an authentic and vivacious life. This dynamic city, in my opinion, has it all. The culture is rich, the diversity is shocking, and the coast is jaw-droppingly gorgeous. With the Atlantic at its doorstep and a backdrop of mountains, Cape Town is already set to be a top destination for nature-lovers. Yet, it’s offerings continue as the city’s creative class bedecks Cape Town with artistic offerings and the culinary scene continues to thrive. Push the city limits by popping into the car for an hour or so to arrive amidst rolling hills of vineyards, or among penguins on pristine beaches, or on the tip of the continent of Africa, or even amongst giraffes and zebras on a game drive. It may be a long journey to get to this corner of the world, but once you arrive, you won’t want to leave.

Where we'll cuddle...

We're staying in an adorable airbnb in the Gardens, my favorite neighborhood of CT. I've divided the cost of the house so it is $600 per person for the whole week, with 2 people per room (if you want your own room it's $1200).  Couples will share and I will pair up singles in same-gendered rooms.


I'm so honored to share this monumental moment. It means the absolute world to know you'd consider literally traveling across the world to celebrate with me.

Please text me to confirm attendance and I'll share info on how to send the investment for accomodation.

$600 per person holds your spot - this is the at cost price for our accomodation... flights are a bit pricey, but totally worth it! Also everything is really cheap once you arrive. The exchange rate very much favors Americans. 

Please RSVP and send investment by September 27.
