Alison Vickerman

Facilitator

Alison works in a financial institution and is currently studying her international bookkeeping diploma. She also works with The UPliftment Programme in her free time as Joy activist.

After going through a tumultuous period in her life that left her feeling disempowered and spiritually unfulfilled, she realized that she needed to take personal responsibility for her life. In 2007, Alison met Karen Barensche’ who recommended that she consider the "Introduction to Metaphysics" class available at MetaVarsity. She started her journey with MetaVarsity in 2008. “When the Student is ready the Teacher will appear.”

In 2008 she completed the Introduction to Metaphysics course has since completed her Applied Metaphysics and Facilitator course.
Alison strongly acknowledges that the course content that MetaVarsity provides has given her a safe support structure that leaves her empowered, inspired and motivated to share and continuously transform her life and that of others.

This year she is facilitating the Introduction to Metaphysics course, class based and distance learning, and facilitating the class based Applied Metaphysics course.

Debbie Caknis

Facilitator
Debbie is a qualified professional nurse and midwife. She specialised in Neonatal Intensive Care nursing and spent the latter 8 years of her nursing career in nursing management. That was where her interest grew in alternative healing.
She noted that too many patients returned to hospital again and again for similar ailments and realised the need for alternative healing modalities that could compliment allopathic medicine, to offer a holistic healing programme. She now has a private practice offering: Kinesiology, Reiki, Bio chemical medicine, intuitive\ energy healing, mentoring and space clearing.
She shares her healing passion with both humans and animals, and as a result studied animal communication, all in order to offer our best friends the same holistic care.
She teaches Reiki, animal communication and facilitates the Introduction to Metaphysics Course for MetaVarsity. She graduated from MetaVarsity in 2008 with the Diploma in Metaphysics (Intuitive Practitioner).

Hlokomani Ndwandwe

Facilitator

Hlokomani is a skilled facilitator with 25 years experience in the corporate industry. She has obtained her B Com, Honours B Compt and a University Education Diploma.

;She officially left the corporate industry in 1999, after the birth of her third child as she recognized through her development in Metaphysics that she wanted to provide for her family not only on a financial level but emotionally too.
She found herself working with different modalities, at tending workshops and reading various metaphysical books, however, she acknowledged that a more integrated approach would help her to understand those elusive questions “Who am I”, “What is my purpose” She was immediately attracted to MetaVarsity through an advert and as the saying goes “When the student is ready, the teacher appears”. In 2011, Hlokomani enrolled with MetaVarsity, completed the ‘Introduction to Metaphysics' via the Distance Learning platform and thereafter the “Facilitators Course”. She is currently enrolled in the second year, Applied Metaphysics.
Hlokomani observed that MetaVarsity offers comprehensive courses with practical tools and theory, starting with self-discovery, working through to Intuitive development, which all assist one to further their journey towards self-mastery in a safe and supported environment. She particularly enjoys the growth and development of self and consciousness even after the course has been completed.
In 2014, MetaVarsity, opened their JHB branch and Hlokomani facilitated the first group of Class Based students on “Introduction to Metaphysics”.
Hlokomani wanted to share and connect with others what she has learnt and experienced through her journey. She recognizes that every person on earth deserves to have this knowledge as she has been guided by those that found the LIGHT before her. As a wise man once said: “If you light your candle from my candle, it doesn’t diminish my candle, and with both candles lit, we have more LIGHT.”
