This is six days of spirituality and laughter amongst the Saharan sand dunes, practising yoga in the morning, joy of dance workshops in the afternoon and under-the-stars storytelling at night.

What you do is up to you – join in when you want, with time and space to pause and reflect alone if you choose. The only rules are that you turn off your mobile phone, leave all drugs and alcohol at home and treat everyone with respect. The retreat starts off from the small village of Merzouga, on the edge of the desert.
After a night there, camels are loaded up and a 90-minute trek into the desert begins. There are just 25 places on the retreat – and adults of all ages attend. The emphasis is on playfulness and forming connections, sharing one another’s journeys and reflecting on your own. The desert is hot in the day and cold at night, there’s no running water and no watches to clock the minutes. It all combines to help you gain a new perspective on your life and what really matters. The retreat costs €425, which includes accommodation, food, water, camels and workshops, but does not include flights or transfers to Merzouga.
