A week of Self-Compassion
& an introduction to women's shamanism
It’s time to gather and dive into the infinite depths of our inner wisdom to heal our selves and our world.
In this retreat, we will draw on ancient practices that were used by the priestesses, womb shamans and medicine women of distant times to re-empower ourselves so we can meet life with more fullness and become the change our world needs in these delicate times.
During our time together, we will focus on cultivating a series of daily rituals, workshops, classes and activities that promote being gentle, supportive, and understanding of oneself. Deepening the practices within a space of warmth and undoncitional acceptance.
Set in the serene coastal town of Essaouira, this retreat will focus on a theme of “self,” to offer a carefully curated space for the modern woman to completely immerse herself in understanding and obtaining self-love rituals and practices.
For 7 nights and 8 days, you can expect to discover the captivating sleepy surfer charm of Essaouira while rediscovering yourself. With a variety of interactive cultural and wellness experiences like crafting with local artisans, mindful cooking classes, an array of water sports, self-love workshops, self-love ritual practices, deep meditations and breathwork, sound baths, yoga and so much more.
This retreat is limited to 14 guests and exclusively intended to reconnect you back to your inner divine female, to recalibrate your energetic vibrations and empower you to find purpose and passion in all aspects of life. Teaching you how to unlock the tools that already reside within you and equipping you with the techniques and rituals to start understanding who you are, what makes you happy and ascertain your individual self-love practices that can be applied in your everyday life.
LOCATION, ACCOMODATION & WORKSHOP SPACE
The sumptuous Villa Anouk will play host to our monthly retreats. Set on 2 hectares, this Beldi farmhouse with its sumptuous rugs to intricate carvings and an ambience that permeates and ensures a luxurious sense of relaxation, with a customary old world undertone, will support in creating the most harmonious space for maximum healing.
To understand yourself first is the greatest tool to begin self-compassion. Then to understand and develop daily rituals and practices that reflect self-compassion is the greatest gift you can give to yourself. Our daily workshops each headed by our practitioners will support in addressing key areas and topics surrounding self-compassion and provide you with the tools, techniques and individual rituals to successfully begin your self-compassion journey. We encourage journaling throughout our workshops to allow you to monitor your growth.
Self-Compassion Meditation & Breathwork
Connect your mind and spirit to develop a better understanding of yourself and your surroundings. Alleviate stress by connecting to your breath, allowing yourself to find what you need from within your own body.
Start your morning with a spectacular sunrise as you walk on the beach and soak in the first light stretching over an endless sea. Essaouira has some of the best beaches in Morocco and there’s no better way to reconnect to yourself than by connecting with nature.
Whether it’s a morning flow to get the blood going and mind calm or a yin practice to wind down the evening, yoga is one of the most effective and nurturing ways we can show love to ourselves. By reconnecting with our breath and aligning the body, mind, and spirit as one we become more aware and more open to new opportunities.
World renowned cuisine
Our biggest source of energy comes from the foods we fuel our body with, which is why we have carefully called upon our private Chef Summer who we know, love and trust to ensure you get all the benefits your body needs throughout your journey.
Stand Up Paddle Board
Soak in some vitamin D while giving your core the workout of a lifetime. We provide SUP boards and lessons for any first timers wanting to get out on the glassy water and enjoy an afternoon of exploration.
There’s no better way to relax than strolling through the sleepy streets of Essaouira. This laid back beach getaway feels like you’re walking through the set of a romantic movie. Take your time shopping around the medina where you can meet with local artisans and craftsmen. Here you won’t find any hassling or heckling, just friendly people who enjoy doing what they love.
Mindful cooking classes
Completely immerse your senses in a mindful cooking class. Get a taste for the flavours of Morocco while learning about the richness of this country’s culture, diversity, and magic.
Sometimes we must venture into the chaos of the outside in order to observe the calm from within. What better way than to explore a day of bustling souks and busy streets in the Red City of Marrakech, with shopping that will make all your vintage dreams come to life and food that will set you into sensory overload this is an experience that is just as essential to understanding our self worth as a deep meditation.
