Morocco & Sahara Desert
17 - 26 November 2023
A transformative journey through Morocco, the Kingdom of Light, through Agdz the gateway to the Desert and to the almighty Sahara.
Listening to the silence of the desert was one of my biggest dreams. And when last year for the first time I finally walked with my bare-feet on that golden sand something happened deep within me. I have never felt so safe. Watching all those stars at night and floating through the cosmos made me realize how deeply connected we are with all that is.
This experience will leave no one untouched as it is one of those you’ll always love to remember.
With Kundalini Yoga, gong and sound immersions, newland walks, desert meditations, breath work, chanting, dancing, rituals, ceremonies, you will be connecting to your inner and outer source.
- A deep experience on the powerful and healing land of Morocco
- 10 days of me-time, recharging and reconnecting with yourself
- Connecting with the earth, nature and a group of like minded beings
- Some time on your own in nature’s silence and under the shining stars
- Healthy fresh prepared Moroccan food (vegetarian, vegan options available)
- Unplugging from modern society losing yourself in the simplicity of the moment
- An opportunity to dive deeper into yoga and meditation and sound
- Laughter, meeting local people, good conversations and open hearts

Our Magical Journey
We’ll meet on Friday at our welcome dinner in Marrakech. You will be picked-up at the airport and brought to our hotel or riad.
The next morning early we’ll be leaving with our drivers through the stunning High Atlas Mountains to Agdz, an oasis at the portal to the Sahara Desert.
3 nights in the midst of palm trees facing Mount Kissan where we’ll be practicing on the roof terrace, enjoy a guided hike in the Draa Valley, unwind and get grounded on that part of the earth.
On Tuesday we’ll travel further into the magical dunes of the Chegaga Sahara where we’ll stay for 4 nights at a traditional nomadic desert camp with ensuite private bathrooms and showers, comfortable beds, open campfires etc.
Saturday we’ll be driven to Aït Benhaddou, a historic ksar (fortified village) along the former caravan route between the Sahara and Marrakech, and a UNESCO heritage site since 1987. We’ll stay in the Kasbah for our last night together.
Sunday our drivers take you back to Marrakech airport for your return flight or to your hotel or riad if you are extending your stay.
A detailed program and everything you need for preparation will be sent to you closer to the departure.
