Marrakech, Morocco, April 11-20, 2020

ALPHA SISTERHOOD GROUP TRAVEL

EXPLORE. CONNECT. FEEL MAGIC.

Morocco. 

Even saying the name feels magical, doesn't it? Sitting on the crossroads between Europe and Africa, Morocco calls you to the world full of beauty, colors, history, culture, and magic.

This trip, unlike some of our past travels/retreats that were more business focused, is all about exploring, feeling, nurturing, and experiencing the magic of Morocco, the sisterhood, your spirituality, and your own self. This will truly be one of life-changing trips you will remember for a very long time.

TEN (10) glorious days of fully immersive Morrocan adventures, experiences, learnings, and connections.

Our Home & Surrounding Areas near Marrakech

The beautiful Maison 28 Marrakech is a magical property located in the heart of the Marrakech medina where color, culture and beauty meet. We will enjoy beautiful accomodations and wonderful hospitality, where we can safely explore and connect to the spirit of Marrakech. (https://maison28marrakech.com)

In Essaouira, you will be staying at Riad Mimouna in a beautiful shared suite overlooking the ocean. (http://www.hotelriad-mimouna.com/us)

Our adventure take us from the busy, energetic, colorful city of Marrakech to the quieter seaside of Essaouira (where Game of Throne was filmed). We will also have shorter excursion to the Atlas Mountains and Agafay desert. Yes, you will get a chance to experience all.

Imagine being immersed in the land, sea, and the mountains of Morocco alongside like-minded women to explore, discover, and be inspired with!

This is not only a great opportunity to have a life-changing, immersive personal adventure and experience, but also a great opportunity to network, collaborate, and form lasting friendships. Many participants from our past retreats have done just that!

As of June 2019, the Morocco Group Travel 2019 is SOLD OUT. Please contact seo@couragetobe.com to be notified if any spot opens up.
