This special Shamanic Retreat will take place in a magical, calm, luxurious oasis of Essaouira.
Crenellated walls, special wind, houses with white and blue facades, Essaouira, the ancient Mogador is the “Bride of the Atlantic”.
It is one of those coastal cities where the unique atmosphere and water activities seamlessly blend. Walk quietly in the shade of its ramparts, climb these walls and take the parapet walk, from where you can see the Purpuraires Islands, falcons, gulls and seagulls hovering above this nature reserve. On the other side, surfers, windsurfers and kitesurfers are taming the waves, taking advantage from the wind.
A walk can lead you to the fishing port where the sailors are active. Get to the fish market where to taste the fish and seafood caught during the night. In the center of the city, the medina invites you on a discovery wander into its winding alley. Ranked as the most beautiful cities in Morocco by UNESCO, the city hums to the beat of music every summer: the Gnaoua festival celebrates Afro-Maghrebin rhythms making people’s stays memorable ones.
In the busy heart of the city is the best place to experience the wonderful ambience and delight in the performances of musicians, dancers, acrobats, drummers, comedians and storytellers unweaving elaborate tales of adventure and mystery through their art forms. The medina itself is formatted of its colorful souks where you can smell the flavor of olives and thousands of spices in the air. You might find yourself in a real time-travel where donkeys, ancient sounds are making you fly on a magic carpet.
Hidden away from the crowded souks, Samsara will revitalize your body and soul in a very unique way. Through yoga, meditation and shamanic practices we will guide you into a memorable adventure.
If you want to feel yourself like a real time-traveler and be surrounded by magic, this is the adventure what you have always wished for.
