MOROCCO – a labyrinth of stories, dreams, and contrasts. A maze of secrets and myths. Here, at night, the hot African nights pulsate with the enticing power of Arabic jasmine. And in the hours between dusk and dawn – the lyrical beauty of the call to prayer momentarily brings serenity to the sensory, bustling passageways of the city.

Far from the hubbub of the city, our tour across Morocco includes a stay in the desert giving you the opportunity to find tranquillity, harmony and inspiration amongst the mysteries of the sand. Beauty is everywhere here in the Sahara.

Wherever you are in Morrocco, your senses will find release. On the noisiest square in the world, you will find a sacred space of silence and see the beauty that fills you from the inside. You will touch the silence. You will understand yourself as you discover symbols and reignite the enchantment of creation with a renewed trust that the magic comes from you.

And in a single moment, hugged by Morocco, beguiled by the breathtaking beauty that surrounds you; you will understand the infinite creative energy within all of us. You will allow yourself to welcome it and acknowledge that we are its source.
