Self-Discovery Retreat with Amanda Giacomini

  • Essaouira, Morocco
  • Sep 28 - Oct 5, 2019 (8 days)

About This Event

Self-Discovery is essentially being aware of oneself. Becoming the observer, finding solace and strength in our solitude, being able to identify the paths given to us and learning how to navigate our lives to fulfil ourselves personally rather than our notion of how we should be living. This retreat will focus on the importance of Self-discovery, how we can cultivate our own and the benefits of being connected to our higher and inner source of love and light. 

Self discovery is at the heart of the yoga tradition. It is of immeasurable value to give ourselves the time and space to ask important questions about who we are, what our purpose is. When we align with that deep inner truth, life becomes a joy and we are filled with fresh enthusiasm and energy. 

Come to Morocco on the Self discovery retreat and you will be guided on a journey through the senses designed to awaken your soul to remember your own creative nature, embody your own unique expression, and savor the beauty and magic of life. 

Each day we’ll explore the flow of creation through the doorways of our senses and the five elements of ether, air, fire, water and earth. Each element provides a particular power in the art of manifestation, and together we’ll discover how to awaken our senses for deeper wellbeing, greater joy, and to create the life of our dreams.

Venue Highlights

We approach our retreats with the intention that each one builds off another, pulling ourselves apart and examining each piece before putting it all back together with the goal of a greater understanding and connection to our existence. We all have a part to play, a role if you will. Many of us call it our purpose, while some simply just view it as how we choose to spend our time here. It is an ongoing process of discovering who we are, what that means, and what our role is in the grand scheme.

Our workshops and sisterhood sharing circles will address how we view our self worth. Our team will break it down into more manageable concepts like what emotional battles still hinder us, how we carry our trauma around without being aware, and how we can recondition our brain to better serve us on our ever-growing journey to discover the stranger within. You can expect daily yoga and meditations to align the mental, physical, and spiritual aspects while exploring the seaside sanctuary of Essaouira. As well as discovering an array of local activities to completely immerse the senses for an experience unparalleled to anything like it.
