A RITE OF PASSAGE

MY TIME WITH JOBI IN THE WATER WAS INVALUABLE IN RECONNECTING WITH MY SPIRITUAL SELF AND SETTING AN INTENTION FOR THE NEXT YEAR. GETTING OUT THERE FELT LIKE A PASSAGE AND COMING BACK IN I WAS MORE CONNECTED TO MYSELF THAN I HAD BEEN IN QUITE A WHILE.

DEEP GRATITUDE

DEEP GRATITUDE FOR THIS WOMAN JOBI MANSON WHO LED OUR RETREATMENT GUESTS INTO THE WATER EACH AFTERNOON FOR SOUL WORK IN THE OCEAN. THERE’S REALLY NO WAY TO DESCRIBE WHAT SHE DOES. SURE, MEDITATION. YEAH, VISUALIZATION. TECHNICALLY PADDLE-BOARDING. BUT COMBINED WITH HER GIFT OF CHANNELLING, SHE IS AWAKENING THE WATER, THE ANIMAL, THE SPIRIT WITHIN YOU. THANK YOU SĒFARI FOR TAKING “THE RETREATMENT” TO THE NEXT LEVEL.

- Natalie Kuhn | VP of The Class by Taryn Toomey

FORCE OF NATURE

SOME PEOPLE ARE MADE BY THE SUN, THE WIND, THE WATER. THEY SHINE AND FLOW THROUGH THE MAN MADE WORLD AND REMIND IT OF WHAT. IS. BIGGER. JOBI IS LIKE THAT.

- Jedidah Jenkins | Creative Driector of Wilderness Magazine, Writer

DEEPER, FASTER

I HAVE DONE PSYCHOLOGICAL THERAPY AND MEDITATION, TRAUMA HEALING. THIS PRACTICE BROUGHT CLARITY AND HEALING, PEACE WITH AND UNDERSTANDING OF SELF THROUGH AN IMMERSIVE AND RELATIVELY SHORT EXPERIENCE. INSTEAD OF THERAPY WHICH IS DONE IN 45 MINUTE INCREMENTS AND GETS CUT OFF. THIS BRINGS TOGETHER NUMEROUS MODALITIES - FROM MEDITATION, TO VISUALIZATION, PAST EXPERIENCES, AND CURRENT FEARS, SELF REFLECTION, ELEMENTS AND SIGNS, ASTROLOGY, NATURAL ENVIRONMENTS TO “SPEED UP” THE SELF-DISCOVERY PROCESS. I COULD GO DEEPER, FASTER, AND THE MODALITIES BUILT UPON EACH OTHER REINFORCING THE MESSAGE FROM SELF, THE TEACHER, AND FROM NATURE.

illumination for the mind

GOING ON SEFARI WITH JOBI IS LIKE TAKING A DEEP DIVE INTO THE UNCONSCIOUS WHERE YOURE MET BY AN OCEAN OF SYMBOLIC ANIMAL AND SPIRIT GUIDES. HER EASE AND GRACE IN THE WATER MAKES YOU FEEL CALM, RELAXED AND AT HOME IN THE SEA. THE INNER / OUTER JOURNEY IS PURE MAGIC - AN ELIXIR FOR YOUR SENSES, ILLUMINATION FOR YOUR MIND AND MEDICINE FOR YOUR SOUL.

- Barb Groth | Founder of The Nomadic School of Wonder

PATTERNS AND ROOTS

WORKING WITH JOBI IS BOTH DEEP AND FUN. YOU FEEL LIKE YOU'RE JOINING A SPECIALIST ARCHAEOLOGY TEAM - FOCUSED ON EXCAVATING YOU. FROM GOING OUT INTO THE DEPTHS OF THE OCEAN AND EXPERIENCING WATER AS LIFE, TO IDENTIFYING CIRCUMSTANCE, PATTERNS AND ROOTS, SHE HELPS YOU ROADMAP WHERE YOU'VE BEEN, TO SHOW YOU THE LIMITLESS OPPORTUNITIES OF WHERE YOU CAN GO, RIGHT FROM THE SYMBOLOGY OF YOUR VERY OWN SOUL. SHE HAS A RARE TALENT TO SEE AND UNEARTH HOW SYMBOLS, PSYCHOLOGY AND NATURE CONVERGE TO REFLECT LIFE.

- Mel Nahas | Founder of The Conscious City Guide

aligned vision

OUR RETREAT DAY WITH SĒFARI PROVIDED A CREATIVE SPACE TO DISCOVER OUR GIFTS, ENHANCE OUR TEAM COMMUNICATION, AND ALIGN ON A VISION. JOBI’S NATURAL ABILITY FOR FACILITATION AND COMMUNICATION, CREATED AN IMMEDIATE SENSE OF COMFORT WITH MY TEAM AND HELPED GUIDE US IN A BREAKTHROUGH BRAND VISION BRAINSTORM. WE CAME BACK FROM OUR EXPERIENCE REFRESHED, AND WERE IMMEDIATELY ABLE TO LAND ON A BRAND MISSION THAT WE ALL FEEL ALIGNED AND CONNECTED TO.

WATER HELPED ME INTEGRATE

FLOATING WITH JOBI BROUGHT A SURPRISING DEPTH AND CLARITY TO MY VISION. I’M SOMEONE WHO SPENDS A LOT OF TIME THINKING AND TALKING ABOUT THE LIFE I AM CREATING, BUT THE EXPERIENCES OF BEING GUIDED THROUGH A POWERFUL VISUALIZATION ON WATER PHYSICALIZED THE PROCESS MAKING IT EASIER TO ACTUALLY INTEGRATE.

- Allison Kunath | Artist

BALANCE HEAD & HEART

AS A CREATIVE, I TEND TO SIT IN MOMENTS OF DARKNESS, WHICH IS WHERE I FIND LIGHT AND MOVE FORWARD WITH MOST OF MY NEW VISION IN WORK. AS IMPORTANT AS THAT PROCESS IS, IT CAN BE AN UNEASY PERIOD OF TIME. AFTER LONG CREATIVE PERIODS I OFTEN SEEK SUPPORT IN THE FORM OF CONSCIOUS AWAKENING OR GUIDANCE IN INTRICATE WAYS. WHAT I PERSONALLY FOUND WITH THIS EXPERIENCE — IS I LEFT WITH THE MUCH NEEDED TOOLS TO MANAGE BALANCE BETWEEN MY HEART, HEAD, AND PHYSICAL STATE. THESE TOOLS ARE NOW PARAMOUNT TO ME IN MOVING FORWARD NOT ONLY WITH MY CREATIVITY, BUT LIFE IN GENERAL. I WHOLEHEARTEDLY RECCOMEND SEFARI GUIDED BY JOBI MANSON.

- Matt Draper | World reknown underwater photograher, artist

DIVING INTO THE HEART

I’M JUST GOING TO SAY, I AM THE WORST AT ASKING FOR HELP. IT TOOK A WHOLE LOTOF HURT RECENTLY FOR ME TO SEE HOW MUCH I RIDE ON MY ENDURANCE WHEN LIFE HAS ME IN THE SPIN CYCLE. BUT THIS WOMAN WASN’T HAVING IT. BORN ON THE SAME DAY AS ME, THERE ARE NO WORDS FOR HOW GRATEFUL I AM SHE COULD SEE RIGHT INTO MY HEAR AND KNEW I WAS HOLDING IT TIGHT. CLOTHES OFF, WETSUITS ON. I FELT BETTER THE MINUTE MY FEET HIT THE SAND. WE PADDLED OUT INTO THE GLASSY SEA AND SHE SAID, “LAY DOWN. CLOSE YOUR EYES.” SHE WHISPERED UNTIL MY BREATH WAS RIGHT AND HEART WAS FREE. “OPEN YOUR EYES,” SHE SAID. DOLPHINS WERE ALL AROUND US. WE FLOATED, LAUGHING AND CRYING LIKE LITTLE GIRLS AT DAWN.

owning my path

A SESSION WITH JOBI IS EQUALLY RELAXING AND LIGHT AS IT IS INTENSE AND DEEP. SHE HAS A UNIQUE ABILITY TO PULL OUT YOUR DEEPEST DESIRES AND INTUITIONS IN A WAY THAT FEELS SAFE AND NURTURING. I LEFT FEELING DEELY CONNECTED TO MYSELF AND INSPIRED TO RETAKE OWNERSHIP OF MY JOURNEY. UNLIKE MANY OTHER EXPERIENCES I’VE HAD, MY WORK WITH JOBI WAS LASTING, A FEELING I GO BACK TO AND CHECK IN WITH REGULARLY.

- Anna Nesser | Partner, Omelete

A JOURNEY OF BECOMING

TRULY SUCH AN INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE. I COULD NEVER PUT IT INTO WORDS. I READ SOMETHING YESTERDAY THAT SAID, “WE ARE ON THE JOURNEY OF BECOMING WHO WE ALREADY ARE”. THANK YOU FOR STEERING ME BACK INTO THE CURRENTS OF MY OWN WELL CHARTED WATERS AND THOSE I HAVE YET TO CROSS. CARRYING MY HEART FULL OF SUN.

- Julia Trimms | Doula & Artist

RUSH OF A RIVER

I WENT TO THERAPY LATER THAT DAY - I TOLD MY THERAPIST IT FELT LIKE I HAVE BEEN SITTING IN MUDDY WATER, AND THERE WAS A RUSH OF A RIVER THAT JUST PASSED THROUGH.

- Kevin Hekmat | Talent Manager

NEWFOUND SENSE OF PEACE

MY WATER REBIRTHING EXPERIENCE WITH SEFARI WAS PHENOMENAL, UNIQUE AND LIFE CHANGING. JOBI WEAVES TOGETHER MULTIPLE LINEAGES, SACRED TEXTS, AND HEALING MODALITIES TO CREATE SOMETHING TOTALLY NEW THAT ALLOWED MY MIND AND BODY TO MAKE NEEDED SHIFTS AND UPGRADES AND SHED A LOT OF OLD STORIES AND PATTERNS. THE EXPERIENCE IN THE WATER WAS ONE OF FEELING DEEPLY HELD, AND AS A RESULT, DEEPLY SAFE. IN THAT TIMELESS SPACE I FLET A NEWFOUND SENSE OF PEACE THAT I WAS ABLE TO TAKE BACK WITH ME TO SHORE. AND THAT IS A GIFT I WILL NEVER FORGET.

- Vivian Rosenthal | Co-Founder, Frequency Labs

MOVING WITH CHANGE

IT DEEPENED MY UNDERSTANDING OF MYSELF THROUGH CREATING CONNECTIONS BETWEEN MY PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE. IT OPENED MORE WAYS FOR ME TO SEE. OUR SESSION WAS SO FULL, I AM STILL DIGESTING IT, BUT IT HAS LED TO SO MUCH MORE CLARITY THAN I HAD BEFORE.

TO THE MOON

MY SENSE OF SPIRITUALITY HAS SKYROCKETED.
