Combining spirituality, psychology, energetics, and embodiment with Rathika, Rachel, and the oasis-like ‘Bucolic’ of the Marrakesh wilds as your space holders and guides.
Welcome to the Wild Awakening Retreat, where you transform into your most expressed, radiantly alive, unfuckwithable self. We’ve carefully curated this retreat to hold and guide you on a journey to the depths and heights of the multi-dimensions of your human experience.
Held by the sisterhood and by the wilds of the Moroccan countryside, you’ll be transported to a deeply intentional, devotional, sacred space that ALSO ignites fun, lightness, and adventure in full celebration of who you are, who you’re becoming, and the life you’re here on Earth to live.
After holding dozens of women through our joint private coaching and healing container online for the last 3 years, we are bringing the healing, awakening, transformative, liberating experience to you in real life, and in the magical, mystical, healing, wild lands of Morroco.
This is where you get to relax and surrender into expansive time and sacred space to release stories, complete cycles, close loops, and integrate the hidden parts of yourself that are currently keeping you from living in your fully awakened liberation.
This retreat will be adventurous, fun, restorative AND it has transformation, awakening, and truth at its core. Which means you must be willing to meet your edges, lean in, and be willing to journey to your depths.
If you’re a woman who’s ready to shed the layers of who you’re NOT so you can finally reclaim and unleash who you truly ARE, and you enjoy the adventure in the process of healing and growth, this is for you.
Come alone or organise as a special trip with a close friend (room share option available).
Being a part of the Wild Awakening retreat will evoke feelings, sensations, and experiences that feel like a whole journey in themselves!
As you’re guided to the depths and heights of every part of you and held in a way that you’ve never been before, you’ll uncover shame and fear, transmute anger and grief, and ride joy, peace, excitement, and love. There will be nerves in meeting new people, new practices, and new parts of you. Rathika, Rachel, and the sessions and practices you’ll experience will show you how to hold these sensations and increase your capacity for all of the feelings involved in being a fully expressed and whole human.
Ultimately it will feel like coming home to yourself and finally feeling able to share that full self with the world.
A typical Wild Awakening retreat day (please note: this is a sample day, schedule is subject to change and days will vary but this gives you a good idea of what to expect):
You’re woken gently to the early Moroccan Spring light to the sounds of birds and the resident donkey. This is the kind of slow and sumptuous morning you dream of while you’re at your desk, and here you are, living it IRL. You spend some solo time waking up to the day at your own pace, fresh tea in hand. Maybe you take your journal out to the terrace for some peaceful tuning in and me-time, or you swing in a hammock chatting with the other guests.
Embodiment and Energetics
A slow and peaceful introduction to your day. This session varies each day but will usually involve devotional gentle movement, breathing, and inner work reflective practices to bring you into your body and set your intentions and ground you ready for a day of transformation, liberation, and exploration.
Your first journey of the day. This session hones in on your spirituality and psyche and looks like self reflective inner work, devotional sharing circle, deep and expansive group coaching to bring your shadow and limitations into the light, or other inner-work practices. You will finish the session feeling seen, heard and witnessed.
Enjoy a beautiful feast – sit, eat and relax in the morning heat
After brunch, you indulge in some spa and Hamman time, book in for a massage, or choose to simply be in one of the venue’s many nooks, terraces, pools, and gardens. This is also your opportunity to channel the wild adventurer in you and head out into Marrakesh for some exploring.
Your time to drop into your body, access your subconscious, clear energetic blocks, close loops, release, express, and reclaim the hidden parts of you to bring forward into the light. This second session of the day focuses on ceremony. Over the retreat period, you will journey with a conscious-connected breathwork session, mama cacao, ecstatic dance, and some beautiful surprises, too!
Sit down with your retreat family to a traditional Moroccan feast (which can cater to most dietary needs) to refuel after a day of healing, growing, expressing, exploring, being, and transforming!
To close out your day, you surrender into the serenity of the retreat venue to watch the sky change colour from the roof terrace, take an evening dip in the pool, read a book, and thoroughly date yourself as you integrate your breakthroughs from the day. Or maybe you seek out company and connection with your fellow retreat guests to cosy up together under the stars sharing stories and creating the kind of lifelong connection with fellow women that can only be born on retreat.
Please note that the itinerary may adapt depending on what works best with relation to any excursions and group needs.
