We started making the yoga and meditation retreats in the Moroccan desert back in 2011. This might be the first winter we can’t go to the dunes. Even in August we were optimistic that it might be possible but 2020 has taught us that change can happen very fast indeed. For the moment we haven’t […]
Overcoming Islamophobia by Travelling in Morocco
When I ask people who come on the retreats if they were warned against travelling in Morocco by their friends and family, almost every hand goes up. They are warned about the evils of terrorism, often accompanied by a lecture about how ‘evil’ Islam is, and presumably more Muslims by extension. Truthfully, some of the […]
The Surprising Power of Men’s Circles
Men’s circles are quite in fashion. Groups of ordinary guys are coming together to talk about something other than sex and football and discovering that there’s a lot to say. In an authentic, trustful environment, men are learning to talk about issues that they’ve never been able to share before. I have to admit that […]

Cheap yoga retreats in Morocco
People sometimes ask us why we link to other yoga retreats and courses in Morocco? Aren’t they competition for us? Why would we send people looking to learn yoga somewhere else? Well, there’s a few reasons. For one, our yoga and meditation retreats are over for 2018 and though we run a yoga retreat in […]

Contact Improv in Morocco

People often ask us this after they come to one of our contact improv retreats in the Sahara Desert and plan to travel around Morocco afterwards and meet more dancers in the Ci community.

Animals and Insects of the Sahara Desert
One of the most frequent worries among people who are thinking to come out on the retreat in Morocco (apart from whether it’s safe to travel in Morocco regarding terrorist threats) is whether they’re safe from snakes, spiders or scorpions in the Sahara Desert. We’ve been running meditation and yoga retreats since 2011 in Morocco […]

A Holiday in Morocco – Travel or Tourism?
So you’re planning your holiday in Morocco and you go a Morocco travel guide like the Lonely Planet and learn that: Morocco is the thrill of a hidden alley Morocco is a salty breeze Morocoo is the richness of the desert It seems unlikely many Moroccans would give these answers if they were asked what […]
The Sandiest Yoga Retreat in Morocco
Can a retreat be without a dogma?
I created this retreat in part because we couldn’t find anything similar that I could go on. I looked around at the yoga retreats and meditation centre on offer in Morocco and in Europe and they were either way too expensive or else came with the tacit assumption that one would subscribe to their underlying […]
Retreats in Morocco, Lapland and Where Else?
The retreats in Morocco that we run are all about personal growth. So what kind of example would we set if we weren’t also growing and changing? We began in 2011 with meditation retreats in the Sahara Desert and then starting expanding to include yoga retreats in Morocco with dance workshops, too. Then in 2015 […]
Is it safe to travel to Morocco? Yes..
Recently the tragic terrorist attacks in Paris have led many travellers and tourists to ask if it’s safe to travel to Morocco now. With the news full of the threat from IS and the refugee crisis pushing nationalist buttons all over Europe, it might not seem like the best moment to visit and Arabic country. […]

The Joy of Dance on the Sahara Retreat
When most people think of a dance retreat they probably imagine teams of choreographed dancers going through a complicated kinetic routine. Or else everyone dressed up in traditional clothes doing circle dances with their hands on their hips. The dance retreat in Morocco this January is a bit different. Imagine dance as a form of […]
