Kra Shemor Ceremony


Respectively during the annual summer-, easter- and christmas holidays you got the possibility to attend a Kra Shemor ritual in Ghana.

The very unique conceived and complex workshop takes place at different locations and offers, with inspiration through the atmosphere of ghanaian vitality and the empathetic direction of Korkoi Odametey, a chance to shed our routine behavior and perceive our own life's journey with that.

A meditation house on the seaside, built out of rocks of the cliff coast, with massaging rooms and a 7x4m swimming pool, is one of the centers for the Kra Shemor rituals and it is about 30 km west of Accra and close to the fishermen's village Kokrobite.

The workshop schedule will be appointed locally, whereby all seminar participants will be teached alternating in single and group sessions. Further professional lecturers for dance, drumming and herbalism ensure this unique maintenance.

We will also locally make you familiar with medicinal herbs of the country and describe their usage and preparation. Additional to that acupressure- and Thai massage will be teached extensively, which gives supplementary basis for the free flow of your energy flux.

Based on the fact , that we will be visiting festivals, rituals in fetish houses and spiritual locations in different regions of Ghana, we assume flexibility of the participants when it comes to accommodations , whereas these will always be taken care of the hygiene and tidiness.
