When you share, you open a window, you come out and through this window you can also receive a sharing – Tyohar
It feels like time to share some words of gratitude for the life experience I got last year.
At the time I already felt grateful to be at PachaMama. Now, with the distance and a different point of view, I cherish even more this amazing experience, PachaMama itself and all of you who created and keep on creating this paradise. Like really, THANK YOU, it’s not even enough to express myself!
I came to PachaMama carrying a little seed wanting to grow. And it got one hell of a growth-power-boost! Barriers have fallen and many little dark corners got lightened up. I’ve been deeply touched on soooo many levels. Most importantly, I really connected with all the love and beauty within me. My heart could literally explode from all the love it contains.
Hmmm, so so soooo much gratitude!
The seed within is still growing and getting stronger by the time, slowly unfolding into the women I am.
I’ll be back soon, ready to dive deeper, much deeper, and allow myself to fully merge with PachaMama.
“While being in PachaMama it was so easy for me to be present and to live in the HERE & NOW. The forest helped me to feel grounded, yet the silence and ceremonies opened me up to the world of spirits.
Since i left PachaMama i feel the huge transformation i went through while living and working in the community: my trust in the Intelligence of life and the wisdom of the body is stronger than ever. My connection to Great Spirit, Mother Earth and prayer is deeper than before. So much healing has happened.
I truly love this unique place and all the beautiful people who are a part of the family.
Grateful for a very rich experience, not to put in words…
Sooner or later, I will be back for sure. Hopefully sooner than later.
Pachamama is an oasis for the soul. Dive in, drink and be the inspirational transformation that this wonderful place will lead you to. I recommend a visit for the curious and total immersion in PachaMama’s programme for the intent seekers out there……Aho!
MY heart is overflowing with gratitude for everything I have experienced since I arrived at PachaMama. The safe space, the depth and beauty of the forest, beach, river, the nourishment of the fresh produce and amazing meals, raw desserts/chocolates… I could go on. The workshops, silent retreat, yoga… Tyohar. One of the most touching parts was the people. Such beautiful, open-hearted, inspirational and loving friends I’ve made. During this roller-coaster of self-exploration where fear and doubt were ever-present, I was only met with encouragement, support, and love. As most of us in our mid-20s know the existential crisis and battle between conforming to a 9 to 5 job we have no interest in or living from our hearts can be hard. So, to be surrounded by this freedom and presence was a blessing. Brings tears to my eyes to have given myself this gift, I am so grateful, so thankful. I will treasure this moment and continue that to the present. Thank you PachaMama for such a beautiful experience. <3
When I came to Pacha Mama I wanted to see who I would be in the community, removed from my usual external identities of job, relationships, regular lifestyle and other trimmings of Western life. I felt the need for inner journey and to grow beyond the limitations that had started to feel too constricting. I found in Pacha Mama the perfect setting, a community of people seeking to explore deeper areas of themselves and question orthodox beliefs about what life should be about. And then just living this and growing with each other.
The location, 3km from the Pacific Ocean but in the forest, meant that I could hear the distant breaking of waves at night from my tent. I’d shower in the open with fresh run-off water, under the starry sky, and would wake at 5am to the sound of Howler monkeys marking their territories, as the dawn slowly broke. Being away from radio, TV, artificial light and living so close with nature for months was healing to my nervous system. But the real work happened in the community.
I chose a few of the workshops, including the month-long Transformation Cycle, to see what aspects of myself needed shifting. For me, working on the Exchange Programme in the kitchens with local people and other volunteers and serving the community with good hand-produced food gave a useful grounding to the deeper soul-work. Daily yoga and meditation for the community helped my body and mind drop into a more natural pattern of existence that provided a diving board for even deeper exploration. The topping on the cake would then be celebration and dance at the community ceremonies. I met so many people over the 4 months I was there that moved me through conversations and interactions and just living alongside, connections that are made for life. A very special community – just be sure to have a flexible end date – the place is hard to leave!
The PachaMama Body Cleanse. It has taken me a whole year to find the words to share about that experience. It is a simple and straightforward process, where you can let go totally into the hands of the two very capable, loving, and experienced group facilitators – Tanmaya and Amari. The schedule is clear, the actions to be carried out are simple, if some can be new and uncomfortable. And the impact on the body, mind, and emotions is unimaginable in its depth and invitation to transformation. I was not hungry at any point during the entire cleanse, and felt light and strong most of the time. The awareness of what we hold inside our bodies; in terms of toxins that we physically ingest, and in terms of unexpressed emotions and feelings; that is invited, supported and ignited in this cleansing process is a gift that you can carry with you for the rest of your life. Whether you apply it regularly or not, is your choice, but the gift is given, the invitation is open.
