A retreat is a withdrawal from ordinary activities for a period of time to commune with God in prayer and reflection. A place, where the experience of the Sacred and search for the Divine is central to our daily rhythm; for community members & visitors alike.
Ha Phororo lies at the foothills of the ancient Magaliesberg mountains, overlooking the picturesque Hartbeespoort dam in South Africa. The name “Ha Phororo” – the place of the waterfall – communicates, the idea of a place of spiritual and physical nourishment and refreshment. It is a place of solitude and retreat, as well as sharing the company of like-minded people with a common wish to draw closer to the Source of all.

All are welcome to share this journey with us. Come for the day or stay for a while.

Our Name- – the word “Ha Phororo” (in Sotho) and “Empophomeni” (in Zulu) means “The Place of the Waterfall”. In dream language the symbol of the Waterfall is often associated with the search of meaning, a deep longing for a centering of our lives that promises peace of heart. The name indicates our own willingness to remain open to the presence of the One who called us into life and continues to be with us wherever our life path leads..
