Welcome to Kechara Forest Retreat!
Kechara Forest Retreat (KFR) is built upon eons of scientific wisdom to help humanity rise above the matrix of life in a Tibetan spiritual fashion. Here, your holistic wellbeing is nourished from the core and genuinely cared for along with the preservation of the planet and the creation of conscious global communities.
Since I was a young child, I wanted to create a place where people come together to live as one with nature, one with the earth. A place for healing, detoxification, contemplation, relaxation, and retreat. An international centre for meditation courses not based on religion but tapping into ourselves and our potential. A place for eco-living modelled on sustainability and growth. This project is Kechara Forest Retreat and it will be a space to inspire the world to do the same in their own communities.

Before embarking on the KFR pilgrimage or Holy Walk, these are some recommended prayers to set the correct motivation and increase the merits accumulated from this virtuous activity.
When walking for health reasons or circumambulating holy objects, we can recite lots of mantras and pronounce the mantras with concentration.
Prayer wheels are a helpful method to gather more mileage in our spiritual practice which can bless our environment, our pets, our loved ones and ourselves.
Usher in the Year of the Boar with abundant Chinese New Year Eve offerings at Kechara Forest Retreat.

Light offering is popular with visitors to KFR and one of the sites where we can make light offering is at Buddha Manjushri Nagaraksha.
