Welcome to Pachamama Forest Retreat
A Space for Healing and Sustainable Living Practices.
Nestled on the edge of the Knysna indigenous forest, Pachamama forest retreat is a space for conscious physical and spiritual exploration and healing.
Our retreat provides a peaceful environment where you can reconnect with nature, dive deep into yourself and explore your personal practices. We offer a range of self-healing modalities that support you during your time with us. These may include Daily Yoga, Meditation, Dietary Healing, Visions Quests, Sweat Lodges and Sound Journeys. We also provide a space for workshops and retreats that are aligned with our vision and empower individuals on their particular path.
As a community, we focus on exploring and embodying sustainable ways of living, in harmony with one another and nature. Our retreat facilities and sustainable systems include permaculture inspired food gardens, eco-buildings and an on-going project of forest restoration.
