Welcome to Pachamama Forest Retreat

A Space for Healing and Sustainable Living Practices.


Nestled on the edge of the Knysna Afromontane Forest, our retreat is a space for 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 practice. We offer a range of self-healing modalities that support you during your time with us. These may include Yoga, Meditation, Dietary Healing, Visions Quests, Sweat Lodges, Massage or Sound Healing. 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.

‘Pachamama’ is a goddess revered by the indigenous people of the Andes. She is also known as the earth/time mother. In Inca mythology, ‘Pachamama’ is a fertility goddess who presides over planting and harvesting. She is also an ever-present and independent deity who has her own self-sufficient and creative power to sustain life on this earth (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pachamama).
