ABOUT US

OUR DREAM

As the global environmental crisis has become more and more dire, so has our desire and need to live a more sustainable lifestyle. A life that has a gentler footprint on the earth and that is more in harmony with nature.

We are creating a space that our souls have called for.

We look forward to sharing our experiences and tools with others, and hope to inspire those who long for change too, to answer their own soul calling.

WHO WE ARE

The Mystic Cat is owned and run by partners in life, business and adventure, Shaz & Russell.

IT BEGAN

Many years ago in terms of planting the seed of manifestation – we’ve both been dreaming about this for a very long time.

At the beginning of 2019, the seed we had nurtured finally took root. We found our little paradise – a completely overgrown, off the grid plot of land in the Overberg of the Western Cape. 

This land, surrounded by mountains, waterfalls and a river, is the home of The Mystic Cat farmstead.

It is from here that we continue to develop, grow and build our vision. 

OUR GOALS

We want to show people that living off the grid is possible, and that even small changes to their own way of living can and does make a difference to the environment. We hope that through sharing our journey, the mystery of this lifestyle and myths/fears can be removed, encouraging people to make changes and to live more naturally. We want to share our experiences, knowledge and skills with others to empower them. We want to create a space that is inspiring and healing. 

  • Designing our own low-footprint home that is off the grid

  • Micro farming

  • Offering courses & experiences

  • Providing access to natural healing and wellness knowledge, modalities and tools

  • Sourcing local resources, sharing with the community, and uplifting wherever we can.

MORE ABOUT SHAZ

Shaz is madly passionate about growing our own food as well as medicinal plants. She’s been an avid gardener for most of her life, co-creating organic gardens that function as an ecosystem. She is dedicated to the responsibility of Earth Stewardship.

Shaz’s spiritual philosophy is nature based. Aside from extensive self study and exploration of many different spiritual modalities, she studied Wicca under two High Priestesses following different theologies for several years and was initiated as a High Priestess herself. She was then given an opportunity to apprentice under an American Shaman and learnt from the Twisted Hair tradition of North American Shamanism. She has led many circles and performed ceremonies & handfastings in both KwaZulu Natal and Cape Town. 

Shaz had a Crystal & Esoteric shop called Earth DNA for over a decade, first online, then with a physical shop in KZN which she later relocated to Cape Town when she moved. The Mystic Cat is a rebirth of her intention to connect people to tools for spiritual growth. She loves sharing with people how to work with crystals in their every day lives.

MORE ABOUT RUSSELL

Russell is a yoga and meditation teacher. Having developed his practice for over a decade, he went on to complete a 200 hour Yoga Alliance approved teaching certification from the Source, where he currently facilitates yoga classes and meditation courses.

At the beginning of 2019 he founded Zanta yoga, through which he offers classes and courses for studios, hotels and spas, as well as offering tailored classes for small groups and individual home sessions.
