Movement of Jah People
H.I.M. EarthStrong Tour
This tour is designed to explore the historical and spiritual backgrounds of the Rastafari Movement in Ethiopia. Ethiopia is an important place for the Rastafari faith; it is the place where His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I was born and ruled over for decades. Until today Ethiopia carries His spiritual and cultural legacy.
The tour starts in Addis Ababa where we trod in the footsteps of His Majesty. With local Rastafari guides we explore sites of interest like the national museum, a former imperial palace, and several statues and landmarks. After two days we leave the city and drive south to Shashamane, the Rastafari ‘Heartland’ of Ethiopia. On the way we enjoy the African scenery, and in Shashamane we visit the community and engage with them in reasonings and meditations. We also explore the natural surroundings of Wondo Genet and Lake Hawassa. It is in Shashamane where we celebrate the 23rd of July, H.I.M.'s 127th Birthday. After Shashamane we continue the journey to the tropical city of Arba Minch and its surroundings in the south. You can end your trip in Addis Ababa and fly back home, or extend your stay in Ethiopia with a visit to one of its many beautiful and spectacular sites. For example to Harar in the East, where you can visit among other places Ejersa Goro, the actual birthplace of His Majesty.
