How things are here
Phakalane is a space that encourages us to tread lightly within its container, in our interactions amongst each other and in our relationship to the planet.
As a sign of acknowledgement and consciousness that we are entering and interacting within a this space, we have put in place a few simple practices to ensure that you and everyone else who passes through Phakalane can fully experience what it feels like to be in sacred ritual space.
In this regard, we request that you please be aware of the following:
All inside spaces at Phakalane are shoe free, so remember to leave your shoes outside and to bring along warm socks or house slippers to use inside.
It is a still space. In care of all others that are residing and being on the land and in the spaces, please keep your level of conversation low, no cellphones in public spaces and on loudspeaker.
Smoking and drinking of Alcohol is not permitted anywhere on the land. Please smoke outside of the main gate.
Phakalane has a caring, conscious and vegetarian kitchen. When bringing your food, we ask that wherever possible you bring vegetarian, preservative free and organic foods. The vegetable and herb garden is here for you to pick from. Recycling bins are clearly marked.
The spaces are cared for by everyone using them. Any used dishes need to be washed, dried off and replaced in cupboards and breakages replaced.
Please leave the spaces the way you found them.
Phakalane is situated in a suburb so we are aware of our sound impact within our community.
For large groups, please enter and leave the premises quietly and in the interest of promoting good neighbourly relations, please do not park in the street.
