NAZARE PAULISTA ASHRAM

ASHRAM NAZARÉ PAULISTA
The Sachcha Mission Ashram is located in an environmentally protected area surrounded by lush nature in the municipality of Nazare Paulista, about 90 km from Sao Paulo.
You are very welcome to spend the day and also to stay for longer. All visits and longer stays must be scheduled, and to find available dates you need to contact by email before coming. On some weekends the Ashram is closed to visits because of group events and retreats.
The Ganesha Temple just beyond the entrance to the Ashram, trails, and the Mandir (Temple) invite meditation, rest, and the cultivation of silence.
Rooms are shared among 4 or 5 people, with private bathrooms. When space is available, couples can stay in the same room, but generally accommodations for men and women are separate.
We request that visitors bring their own sheets, towels and blankets. Dressers are available in the rooms. For guests coming from other states or countries, linens can be provided if requested by email beforehand.
We serve 3 lacto-vegetarian meals a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner) using organic ingredients whenever possible. Fruit, crackers and tea are available all day in our dining room. We cannot take care of special dietary needs, but whenever possible we offer gluten and lactose free options.

The Ashram is located in a rural area, so you won’t find stores or other services nearby. Try to be prepared for your needs before your arrival. If you need other services, you can go to Atibaia, the closest city (20 km). If you don’t have a car, you will need to take a taxi to get there (R$ 80,00), because there are no others means of transportation.
