To be the truth of who we are

What on Earth Talk Series

As a way of loosely ordering the What on Earth talks, individual discussion events will be titled in accordance with the age-old image of the elemental cycle of creation. The talks will be categorised under the headings: Air, Fire, Water and Earth respectively.

Join us in this elemental series with Anna Breytenbach and Colin Campbell.

Taking Phakalane Forward

Greetings Beloved Phakalane Community.

On this auspicious day, we want to share the news about an important development at Phakalane.

After a year of having Phakalane closed in order to take time to grieve and rest, we have now found a couple who we believe are the right people to take Phakalane forward. We are in the final stages of handing over to them and it should all be completed by the end of January.

The Gift of Retreat

Welcome to Phakalane.

Treat yourself to the gift of slowing down. We welcome you to take some time out to rest and reconnect.  Take time alone or with a loved one in the peaceful surroundings of Phakalane.

Imagine slow days following nature’s rhythms relaxing at our natural pool, being in silence or taking a gentle walk on the mountain, surrounded by the beauty of the Cape fynbos.

Our retreat huts are available for short term rental. Make a booking today.

We look forward to welcoming you,
Angel and the Phakalane team

A simple, clear and womb-like space high up on the property

A space and container for one to step into stillness, self, grace, care, vulnerability and heart

Celebrating the life and vision of Phakalane founder Claudia Rauber

Claudia lived her truth and up to her last exquisite breath in her physical body on 11th August 2018, she embodied that truth with courage, integrity and love. The shock and incredible feeling of loss remains as present and stark as it was on that day.

Phakalane as a whole was bequeathed by Claudia to her mother, Angel. As per Claudia’s wishes, a few of us have been in discussion with Angel as to where to from here for Phakalane. We will keep you informed as to progress and any final decisions that are made.

Please keep in touch. We will post updates here and on the Facebook page.
