Spiritual training in the kingdom of beauty and silence

MOROCCO — A labyrinth of stories, dreams and contrasts. A maze of secrets and myths. A country with powerful magic. The moment we hear the voice calling to prayer will touch our hearts with such intensity that one part of us will never want to leave this place. All our senses are heightened.

BERBER STORIES — Old-time mythology. A deep mystery of knowing. Unique and enchanting alchemy of rhythms, colours, patterns, symbols, fragrances, tastes, knowing. Winding streets, old medinas with markets that tell tales. Oriental shopping, snake enchanters, mages, belly dancers, mint tea. Hammam rituals, where after the experience, time and space come to have a completely new dimension.

ATLAS — Berber villages, amethyst mountain, mint tea, green oases, valleys, in spring full of flowering cherries and almond trees, on the backdrop of ever-white peaks of the Atlas. Wild rosemary, fragrant lavender. Fragrances and tastes that will be taken in through our hearts.

LIQUID GOLD — Argan oil, waterfalls and caves. Sensual embodiment of Maghreb mysticism. Place where colours strengthen all our experiences, and wewill talk about them for a long time.
