“A lonely roar echoes across Zambia’s Liuwa Plain. The call remains unanswered. And so it has for many years. Poaching has wiped out her kind. For five years Lady Liuwa had to survive on her own. But this year her world could change. Will she finally find a mate or will she remain THE LAST LIONESS?”…
from “THE LAST LIONESS” produced by AQUAVISION TV
This award winning NatGeo wild life documentary is real and powerful in it’s beauty and sets an authentic and riveting stage for transformative TALKS and WORKSHOPS, and NATURE IMMERSIONS in Western Zambias’s Liuwa National Park.
As if we’d be spending time together in nature, I facilitate opportunities to deepen participants’ understanding of core topics and truths relevant to each one of us.
The very first day of my first assignment as wildlife cameraman marked a turning point in my life. I filmed the successful hunt of a wild predator and her interaction with two hyenas in one of Africa’s truly remote paradises for wildlife. Until then, this predator, Lady Liuwa as she later became known, had rarely been seen and was a much respected inhabitant of the Liuwa Plains.
What unfolded over the next few years touched the lives of conservationists, local villagers, and visitors to the grassy plains in which she roamed and finally the lives of millions of viewers who watched the National Geographic wildlife documentary THE LAST LIONESS.
Lady was a teacher and guide to those who met her with an open mind. She had the skill and the courage to share and impart timeless wisdom that the intelligence of Nature harbours for and within us. Lady has awakened inside me what I previously believed was only to be found outside. She has literally transformed my life.
The award winning National Geographic documentary THE LAST LIONESS takes the viewer on a journey of resilience, vision, and hope. Lady’s unexpected different behaviour was unusual and yet, her unique bond with me was convincing and unstaged. The production team honoured what we witnessed and ensured that her story would be told truthfully. During a total of eleven months over four years of filming we were cautious not to inadvertently train Lady to do something that would dramatise the story’s content.
It is our relationship with nature which is awakened or intensely confirmed when we watch this documentary. It is real and powerful in its beauty. THE LAST LIONESS ignites a desire to explore and strengthen our relationship with nature at large as a right but also a responsibility each one of us has, challenging the perception that this is the privilege of only a few.
This documentary is real and powerful in it’s beauty and sets an authentic and riveting stage for inspirational talks and transformative workshops. Viewers and participants with different challenges, histories and dreams recognise personal themes and narratives interwoven in the story.
As if we’d be spending time together in nature, I facilitate opportunities to deepen the viewer’s own understanding of core topics and truths relevant to each one of us. Colourful behind-the-scenes stories and guided mindfulness practices authentically create an atmosphere of adventure and introspection for participants who, as Lady requested, arrive with an open mind.
Half and full day WORKSHOPS as well as multiple day NATURE IMMERSIONS IN WESTERN ZAMBIA’S LIUWA NATIONAL PARK are essentially extensions of the TRANSFORMATIVE TALKS.
Participants are mentored on themes and topics which we choose before and coached on related intentions and goals. The facilitations combine solo time, nature-mentoring techniques and guided mindfulness practices to increase participants’ levels of awareness, with the CORE-TRANSFORMATIVE COACHING METHOD.
Signed dvd’s are available for sale.
Scheduled and tailor-made TRANSFORMATIVE TALKS AND WORKSHOPS, and NATURE IMMERSIONS IN LIUWA NATIONAL PARK are facilitated for individuals, groups and organisations.
