The Khepe-Ra Challenge is a 28 Day Plant-Based Holistic Healing Challenge. It is a transformation challenge where we will commit to healing ourselves holistically and connecting to the essence of our being by releasing external influences, particularly those that are devastating to our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health.
Khepe-Ra is a symbol of transformation or coming into being our ancient Nile Valley Afrakan ancestors represented as the dung beetle (otherwise called Scarab beetle). Our ancestors being nature-based indigenous peoples closely studied the behavior of life in the natural world to symbolize universal laws and pure energies.
The dung beetle has a 28 day cycle in which it lays its eggs in a ball of dung aka shit, and then follows solar cues to roll that ball of dung into a perfect sphere until the new life bursts from the dung. As our ancestors noted, it is “transformational” to see what comes out of the dung, or more metaphorically the necessity of the waste/challenges we face. This process is also fundamental to nourishing the soil that grows plants and food – the circle of life.
Many natural cycles are 28 days, like the lunar cycle and the wombs menstrual cycle among others. Scientifically it is also proven that in 28 days you can rewire the neurons in your brain to break “bad” habits or create new habits. This is a challenge in hopes that you will step into your highest self beyond this moon cycle and continue to “COME INTO BEING”.
