Marrakech is a feast for your senses. An integral part of our retreat is to learn how to be present, breathe and find peace and calm amongst the chaos. We begin each day with a 60 - 90 minute mindfulness practice. Each days practice will be a unique experience threading together; meditation, yoga, sound frequency and conscious conversations.


Every day includes "breathing space" to allow personal wellness time to indulge in a hammam, spa experience, lounge by the pool with a good book or maybe journal.


Not to be forgotten is the delectable and delicious food journey in Marrakech. From street food to local hidden gems and a more sophisticated fare - we will taste them all.

We start the next scene of the Morocco journey in the morning and drive toward the desert. Take a break in Todra Gorge. Make some stops in the plenty of amazing villages on our way. Go off road through the big dunes of Erg Chebbi. Ride a camel and enjoy the sunset from the top of the dunes. Spend two magical nights on the nomadic journey in the Atlas Mountains and two nights at a luxury desert tent experience in the soul of the Sahara desert.


Indulge in a luxurious dinner, under the night sky. Dance and sing to the the spiritual vibes and nomadic sounds of the local musicians at night around the fire. Meditate, move and walk barefoot in the tranquility of the night in the desert. Travel to a unique world under a starry sky.


Wake up early in the morning to watch the sunrise from the top of the dunes of Erg Chebbi. Immerse yourself in the silence of the morning while enjoying your Berber locally made breakfast. Try sand-boarding from the top of the dunes. This experience will be nothing short of life-changing to awaken your nomadic spirit.
