I would make my way via Nissan pickup truck "taxi" to my hotel for the night. Hotel Del Rincon, simple accommodations, was good segway from modern urban to the rustic forest life awaiting me tomorrow.
Stayed here for the night, met my guide and learned my group consisted of 4 women. I would dine with the youngest of our group and my guide that evening. After simple dinner we turned into get a good rest before heading our early in the morning for the forest and Pachamama.
The next morning as we prepared to depart, we meet what would be our mode of transportation for the next 10 days, Gerdy as she became known. Gerdy was a silver 1988 manual 4 door Nissan Sentra. 5 adults and our luggage, pile in and head out.
The Pachamama diet scared me coming in, going; dairy, grain, caffeine, sugar, meat free. The food was amazing at Pachamama prepared with such care and pride.
All the ingredient are organic and local grown, lots of it is raised right on Pachamama.
Filling the need of a hangout and treat spot, Pachamama's Raw Cacao bar, Wild Treats is Amazing! Starting my day with a raw cacao shot was my caffeine substitute and ending my days with raw cacao treats was heavenly.
I don't believe you could stay at Pachamama and not go to the beach, but if you did you'd be missing out. My group not only used the beach for sun and fun, but meditation, Kundalini, Tai-chi and group clarity breath-work sessions. Many a sunset meditations were enjoyed on the beach and are now etched in my mind as part of this experience.
Osho Hall is such a central part to the Pachamama experience.
If there is one place you can truly share in group growth and positive energy exchange while staying in Pachamama it is in Osho Hall. The reverence and respect it is shown can only truly understood after experience the magic that happens inside it. My first day in Pachamama, I was instructed there is only one thing that they really ask everyone to participate in each day, 1 hour silent meditation each evening before dinner in Osho. That was the framing of my first intro to Osho hall and many of the camps residents. Osho would be home to many of my emotional challenges, physical movement really triggered deep seeded emotions; Dance, Yoga, Kundalini, and Tai-Chi were just a few of the physical movements I experienced in Osho Hall.
