Past retreat: Magic in Morocco

writing, wellness and wanderlust

That’s right! We’re headed to Morocco this November! Scroll below for details and how you can reserve your spot.



Whether you’re working on a creative journaling project, wanting to break into blogging, just beginning your mindfulness practice or simply want to see this part of the world, you’ll gain insights into how to improve your personal craft and being. Everyday, there will be writing lessons, followed by an exercise with free-time for group excursions and free-writes for uninterrupted creativity.

We’ll be hosting the retreat at the charming Riad Cinnamon, in the heart of Marrakech. We chose this boutique property for so many reasons but primarily, because it’s a quiet oasis to hone in on your craft without distraction. There’s a rooftop terrace, a cozy lounge, pool and patio as well as ample areas for writing and meditation. Prices are based on double occupant rooms (twin beds), but if you prefer a room to yourself, we can arrange for an added fee.



In between writing and Yoga sessions, we’ll be exploring the amazing city of Marrakech. From cobblestone streets and countless riads to colorful buildings, spices and personalities, we’ve found our perfect place to write, relax and find out center.

We’re still ironing out the details but so far, we’ll be doing a guided excursion through the city’s souks and medina, It will be a sensory overload, and we hope the sounds, smells and sights will inspire your writing. We’ll also tour the Bahia Palace, Jardin Majorelle, and the Saadian Tombs.

To get to know each other better, Ko and I will be arranging a welcome dinner in Marrakech, where we can glimpse the city by night. This will be an opportunity to introduce yourself, set your intentions and indulge on delicious traditional foods. We’ll host a closing dinner as well, complete with complimentary wines.
