Tendai MWARI, 

Greetings one & all. As you may know my name is Tafadzwa ShakaRa Mbandaka - Spoken Word Activist, Journalist and Curator of the Monthly Spoken Word Extravaganza - Rise of the Griots. ShakaRaSpeaks.com

As I am sure you can appreciate, growth and development is a conscious endeavour we must all engage in for the betterment of our communities. I am taking this opportunity to let you  know about my personal journey in this regard and how you can help if you so wish.

Awaken the Maroon Within Holistic Retreat

Recently, the opportunity to become formally trained as an Afrikan Yoga instructor in Maroon Town, Jamaica (under Egyptian Yoga Master Neter Aunkh Aakhu) this October, has opened itself to me and my spirit has called me to take the journey.

Why Egyptian Yoga?

My primary reason – I was initiated in to manhood through an Afrikan Rites of Passage Programme. Today, I am giving back to that programme by enhancing and developing it as I take on the role of a Baba (Father) within it. Afrikan Yoga is a discipline that enables us to cultivate our minds, bodies and spirits individually and collectively; it is therefore service that the programme and the young men & women within it would greatly benefit from and I have chosen to be the vessel through which it is brought.

There are other Rites of Passage Programmes now operating in the UK and I would like to offer the service to them also.  finally I plan to join those who have already opened the service to the community at large in the UK, ensuring that the benefits of Egyptian Yoga can be accessed by our community far and wide.

What do I have to do?

The training itself 2 weeks of VERY intensive 15 hour days in JA (October-November 2017). We will be trained in 2 Yoga Systems, Biology, History & Philopsophy of Egyptian Yoga, Nutrition and Diet, Teaching Satisfactory Yoga Classes, and various tests related to the above. 

In order to complete the training I would like to raise £1500. Your contributions will greatly assist in in going towards tuition and related expense. I would greatly appreciate any assistance you could provide in this regard and would be most pleased to dish out as much rewards as possible to all those who do.
Rewards will include

-          Free Entry to Rise of the Griots

-          Free Afrikan Yoga Classes (when they begin)

I look forward to hearing from you and thank you ABUNDANTLY in advance for assisting me in completing this mission. I assure with all the good in me that you will see the fruits of your confidence.


NB: So I was asked if people can donate more than £100 - the Answer is YES of course...  lol... Sincere and most humble thanks to anyone who sees this vision enough to contribute 100+... But the truth is I could not think of a reward that would compliment this. So, should you find yourself in the OLIVAY bracket, consider youreself eligable for all the rewards of EBONY, then please email theword@ShakaRaSpeaks.com and hopefully we can work out a reward that way. Abundant thanks once again.

We are creators
Vision must have results
Revolutionaries must produce

While some teif, some buy and some pursue for rentals
No need for qualifications my nature is my credentials
Like manifestation of most high meditation and creation harmonisation
Archetechtual technician of autonomous nation mission
Optician of 1st, 2nd & 3rd Eye vision
Uncovering archelogical discoveries of dormant innate abilities
Forgotten histories unlocking of those Khem- Mysteries
Quite simply be the Griots, veteran of vernacular aplliances
