Pachamama's Garden

Pachamama's Garden is located on the grounds of The Jackson Ranch (Center For Healing & The Arts.)  An ancient estate with a vivid history, including spiritual and ceremonial grounds to Native Americans.

Located on 1 of 4 acres of beautiful country in South Central Texas, Pachamama's Garden is a healing experience you don't want to miss!   Visit the Chakra Garden and heal the  layers of your being.   Fill your senses with exotic flowers and unusual plants, gifts from Pachamama.  Practice Aromatherapy Incan style with a snip of one of the many herbs in the herb garden.  Munch on one of many vegetables. 

Experiencing discord with a friend or relative?  Use the Resolution Circle to ease your tension and 'work things out.'  One person will sit silently in the middle as the other slowly paces the circle speaking softly.   Change places in 3-5 minutes. Continue until you find resolution.  Then hug and appreciate each other!

Traverse the REFLEXOLOGY CIRCLE made from RIVER STONES.    Walk the path relaxing your mind and going deeper into your soul.   While walking, you will stimulate your entire body as your bare feet press into the stones. . . NATURAL REFLEXOLOGY! 

Fill the REFLEXOLGY CIRCLE with WATER and feel PACHAMAMA'S energy run through your body!  A natural energy boost!  River rocks hold energy that has been given to them by the flowing water for thousands of years!  This is Incan hydrotherapy for headaches!    IT'S THE BEST FEELING IN THE WORLD !!
