Join Mindie Kniss on a life-changing journey in Kenya.

A Note from Mindie...

Kenya has always been a catalyst for me.
Venturing so far from one's own country and culture, you get a unique opportunity to reflect on your life and see things from a new perspective.  I was able to get clear on my purpose and HeartPath, now I want to offer you a similar experience.

I'm delighted to share this adventure (both outward and inward) with you and introduce you to a place that resides so prominently in my heart.

I visited Kenya twice (in 2001 and 2003) and then lived there while on a fellowship (2006-2007).

The first Catalyst Kenya trip was in 2017 and I'm itching to be back on the continent.

I strongly believe that education is the best way to change the world, so I'm taking a small group of adventurers (maximum 8) to work with The Fred Outa Foundation at schools they have built in Kenya.

We'll also spend a few days on safari, and visit some Kenyan cultural sites.  Not only will you be asked to roll your sleeves up to work, but we'll focus on your inner work as well.

Africa will change you.  That's guaranteed.

June 7 - 20, 2020

June 7:  Depart United States from JFK airport in New York

June 8:  Arrive in Nairobi, Kenya - Jomo Kenyatta Airport (NBO)

June 9 - 18:  We'll work in a school in the Kibera slum, visit many cultural sites, and enjoy a safari at a national game park.  Detailed schedule to follow.

Registration fee includes:

•  All accommodations and full board (breakfast, lunch, and dinner)
•  Direct flight to Kenya from New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Nairobi's Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO)

•  Transportation within Kenya

Traveling internationally can be complex enough -- I wanted to make this trip as simple as possible by including almost everything.  You just need to get yourself to JFK airport with your passport in hand and I'll take care of the rest.

Please note:  Registration fee does not include drinks, excursions, gratuities, incidentals, or travel insurance.

I'm currently working with the travel agent in Nairobi on exact pricing. Plan for approximately $9,000 per person (this is a high estimate so it will likely be less) per person.  A $1,000 deposit is required to hold your spot.
If your question isn't answered below, CONTACT US and we'll add it.
What language is spoken in Kenya?
English and Swahili are both considered official languages; there are also more that 60 different tribal languages spoken.

Is this trip handicap accessible?
Accessibility in Kenya isn't great and we will be in places that have no pavement or flat land; therefore, this is not a handicap accessible trip.

What is the currency in Kenya?
Kenyan Shillings.  As of this writing, the exchange rate is $1US dollar = 102.77 KSH. (When you see your ATM balance in Kenyan Shillings, you are likely already a millionaire!)  :)

Do I need travel insurance?
Travel insurance is recommended.  Visit to compare rates and learn more.  (I have no affiliation with this site.)

Do I need vaccinations to travel in Kenya?
Vaccinations are recommended, but not required.  Visit the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to learn more about traveling in Kenya.

Isn't it dangerous to travel in Kenya?
The U.S. State Department has warned against U.S. citizens traveling the border area between Somalia and Kenya based on threats from al-Shabaab.  We will not be anywhere near this area.  Learn more here.

Space is limited to eight people.
