Relax, reflect and renew amid the warm land and people of Southern Morocco, learning from Nature about the roots of joy, and grow your wellbeing from the roots up. This trip combines a truly magical holiday with some inner and group exploration, including meditation, mantra dance, inspiring Sufi practices and lots more.
Our outer adventures will include sharing music, food and social time with the local Berber people, whose daily life embodies the roots of joy, with its closeness to Nature, inclusion of the sacred, and warmth of true community and a four-day trip into the Sahara and the Anti-Atlas Mountains.
Our inner adventures (all optional) can include…
- Using parallels with Nature to tend your inner ecosystem: e.g. feed your roots; compost the stress; learn from wild margins.
- Sufi practices, accessible to anyone, which can help you to open to the unity of all life and your own highest guidance, such as Breath Practices, Dances of Universal Peace, walking with sound mantras, practising Kindness and Gratitude, silent contemplation and Zikr.
- Space for solo time and future visioning with optional support from Alan and Jilani
- Opening to the wisdom and support of the group, of magical landscapes and our host community
