.*MAGIC IN MOROCCO*
Writing, Wellness & Wanderlust
November 21-26th, 2018 Marrakech $1250 total
Want to go sightseeing and become immersed in color as well as culture? Want to explore your creative side and feel positive? You’ll have daily yoga/meditation by yours truly and writing prompts from my friend Megan. Whether you’re working on just journaling, thinking about breaking into travel blogging or writing a screenplay AND hope to become more mindful in your life AND always wanted to check Morocco off your bucket list, join us! You’ll gain insights into how to improve your personal craft and being while seeing this beautiful part of the world. It’s your time to get away for the Thanksgiving holiday.
You’ll stay at the charming Riad Cinnamon, in the heart of the city. We chose this boutique property because it’s a beautiful, cozy, inspiring place: with a rooftop terrace, a cozy lounge, pool and patio. 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 head into the amazing city of Marrakech — imagine waking up, getting your thoughts on paper, then walking down cobblestone streets to souks. Your soul will be inspired; your senses will be delighted.
You’ll arrive to a welcome dinner in Marrakech for intention-setting and of course, indulgence on delicious traditional foods. We’ll close out the stay with a group dinner.
