The Retreater

Moroccan Desert Retreat

About The Retreat

We are very excited to welcome you on this adventure of self-discovery, with the stars and sand as your witness. This 6-night retreat journey is an opportunity to step out of your ‘normal’ and dive into your deepest wants and desires, without limitation. Resurfacing with renewed energy, aligned vibration and a rejuvenated spirit. We meet in Marrakesh to soak in the fragrant atmosphere of this vibrant city and open our circle, before starting our adventure over the Atlas mountains by 4x4, along the old caravan route. We will lay our heads at a lush desert Oasis dropping into a slower, deeper state. The following day we head to our luxury desert camp for 2- nights under the vast stars, surrounded by open sands, listening to the sound of our souls. The stars and our intentions will burn even brighter as our trip coincides with the May New Moon. As we circle back, our path will take us via the UNESCO World Heritage Berber town of Ait Ben Haddou, taking in remnants of a past age whilst assimilating our own experiences. We’ll spend the night nearby to refresh before returning to Marrakesh. On arrival back in Marrakesh we will be welcomed by the warm hospitality of the famous, Al Fassia. Spending our final evening here, we can celebrate our journey, translate our discoveries into actions and prepare for our onward paths home. Through journaling, sound, movement and breath you will have a safe foundation to shift into personal power and the high vibrations of self love, gratitude and creation. This personal adventure will allow you to hold onto what resonates with who you are and tune into what makes you shine brightest. This is all supported by amazing Moroccan hospitality and vegetarian/vegan locally-sourced cuisine to amplify those good, healthy vibes.

Its difficult to put into words just what an experience it was. Whilst we travelled a long way, it felt like the journey was required to get to the destination, which made it more special. I laughed a lot, had various emotional moments and felt like I learnt a lot about myself, which I will carry with me. I left an anchor in the desert. I'm really, really grateful for the experience.

If you are thinking about doing anything with Almira and George; whether a southbath, 121s, a retreat, anything; SAY YES! Anything they touch turns to gold - what an incredible retreat in Morocco with a beautiful group of people! THANK YOU

I absolutely loved everything about the retreat to the Morocco/Sahara dessert. The people, different locations and amazing accommodations, the food, fun and interesting activities. Even the long drives were beautiful! Scenery was breathtaking. I definitely accomplished what I set out to gain from it and overcame some fears and made gorgeous memories 😊

Wow!!! What an amazing adventure! I loved this trip and I deeply appreciated all elements. The size of the group I felt was just right and the mix of people were perfect. Going to the Sahara was mind blowing and very grounding and soul affirming. Thank you so much for curating such a wonderful experience I will carry with me for a long time.
