Jakon Rate provides a safe, isolated space for you to focus, find your balance, and cultivate a true learning connection with your samá.

Sámati Xóbo / Tambo

Each sámati xóbo (house for samá) is designed to be a private sanctuary that can meet all of your basic needs and aid in your samá process. There is adequate space and foliage between each xóbo to provide a safe amount of isolation. They incorporate a traditional leaf roof design together with high quality hardwood floors and walls. Mosquito screen encloses the living space, which includes a private dry double-vault composting toilet. All tambos have clean and drinkable running water 24-hours a day with excellent water pressure. Attached by a small bridge is a spacious open air bathing platform with a shower, faucet, large basin, and small stool for personal floral baths and washing.

Inside you will find:

  • 1 single firm pocket coil mattress with frame
  • 1 synthetic down pillow
  • 2 sets of 100% cotton sheets
  • 1 blanket
  • 1 mosquito net
  • 2 100% cotton towels
  • 1 hammock
  • 1 small table and chair
  • 1 hand fan
  • 1 white & red headlamp
  • 1 emergency whistle
  • 1 umbrella for rain or sun
  • 1 traditional clay ashtray
  • candles & matches
  • toilet paper
  • sawdust
  • small hand washing sink
  • shelves

For the purpose of enhancing the experience of samá, we do not have electricity in the tambos (our water is currently pumped with a generator), so at night you will have candlelight or head headlamp to get around. If you are looking for an experience with luxury accommodations, our center will most-likely not be the right fit for you, so please reach out to us if you have any doubts or questions.
