overview

Location: Essaouira, Morocco

Self-Discovery is essentially being aware of oneself. Becoming the observer, finding solace and strength in our solitude, being able to identify the paths given to us and learning how to navigate our lives to fulfil ourselves personally rather than our notion of how we should be living. This retreat will focus on the importance of Self-discovery, how we can cultivate our own and the benefits of being connected to our higher and inner source of love and light.

Self discovery is at the heart of the yoga tradition. It is of immeasurable value to give ourselves the time and space to ask important questions about who we are, what our purpose is. When we align with that deep inner truth, life becomes a joy and we are filled with fresh enthusiasm and energy.

Come to Morocco on the Self discovery retreat and you will be guided on a journey through the senses designed to awaken your soul to remember your own creative nature, embody your own unique expression, and savor the beauty and magic of life.

Each day we’ll explore the flow of creation through the doorways of our senses and the five elements of ether, air, fire, water and earth. Each element provides a particular power in the art of manifestation, and together we’ll discover how to awaken our senses for deeper wellbeing, greater joy, and to create the life of our dreams.
