Description

Rastafarian Culture & Rastafarian Religion Educational Field Trip In Jamaica

Join this once in a lifetime experience if your group is interested in learning about the Rastafarian Religion, and how the followers of Rastafari live their lives. We will arrange for your group to receive a guided presentation and tour of a Rastafarian community, where they will explain all about the religion, including the food they eat, their beliefs in living in love and harmony with nature, traditional herbs, philosophy and more.

 

Your Rastafarian culture trip will begin on the banks of a river, and you will hear chanting and the beating of drums as you draw nearer and nearer to the village. After your tour of the Rasta community is completed, you will receive a tour of the kitchen displaying traditional herbs, spices and vegetables used in the Rastafarian diet, and you will also learn the nutritional and culinary significance of each ingredient.

 

Your Rastafarian tour guide will then provide your group with a presentation on Rastafarian history and explain important aspects of Rastafarianism beliefs and practices, the Rastafarian origin story, the importance that having Rasta dreads play and more.

 

Next, enter the meditative labyrinth, to reflect upon your life and your thoughts. Afterwards, your Rastafarian movement field trip will come to its conclusion with a traditional drum and chanting session, where you will be served herbal tea and fresh fruit while you enjoy the music. You may even join the drummers at the end.

 

At the end of your program, you will be served a lunch consisting of a traditional Rastafarian meal. You can also browse around the craft shops to purchase authentic Rastafarian Trinkets and souvenirs.
