This journey is one part retreat, two parts adventure, with a dash of magic. All that is outside is also within, and the thoughtful structure of this journey allows you to explore the many layers of your being. What are the qualities you associate with the ocean, mountains, desert, countryside, and city? How do they speak to you and can you sense that same energy within yourself? Can you see how the marketplaces we will encounter can represent the relentless chatter of you mind? Or that getting lost in a medina may remind you of times when life feels like a never-ending maze?
For in order for us to truly feel whole and at peace ~to enter the mystic~ we must honor, explore, and unite all the different parts of ourselves. Join our caravan for a journey that will set your heart ablaze.
The first three nights, we make our home in the laid-back, seaside town of Sidi Kaouki, just 20 miles south of Essaouria. The stunning Hotel Blue Kaouki will be home-base where you’ll enjoy some of the best sunsets of your life! Yoga and meals take place on the rooftop terrace. Daily adventures include trips to the souks of Essaouria, beach walks, and a few other surprises. This is the perfect place to get grounded and nourish your body and mind after a long journey to Northern Africa.
Our main home is thirty minutes outside of Marrakech. We stay at the breathtaking Ecolodge Quaryati. It’s nestled in the Ourika Valley and surrounded by fields of wheat and olive trees, and over 2,000 rose bushes. Each morning wake up to stunning views of the Atlas mountains. Morning yoga will be on the rooftop terrace with views of the mountains and the family of peacocks in residence. On your days here, you can choose to trek into Marrakech for shopping and exploring, or rest at Quaryati and enjoy the pool, a massage or hammam treatment, and explore the beautiful grounds of this countryside retreat.
Excitement begins as we trek into the mighty Sahara and immerse in Nomad living for a 3 nights at two different cozy desert camps. Early morning yoga classes will help soothe your body and mind, preparing you for the heat of the desert. During the day, we rest, reflect, and connect…..and sometimes ride camels! Early evening, we head out to climb dunes and watch the sun set. Nighttime is spent around the fire in true nomad-style: singing, dancing, and celebrating the Full Moon!
The food in Morocco is fresh, local, and delicious! Savor traditional dished of tagine, fresh vegetables, dates, flavorful spices, and couscous. Vegetarian and meat options are available. Daily ritual of mint tea…..a must.
