You will spend six nights in a stylish ensuite lodge in the Moroccan countryside. The lodge is designed with floor to ceiling windows so that you can enjoy views of deep blue sky, the Atlas mountains, and country gardens. The sunny terraces feature comfortable loungers set amongst soft grasses, lavender, and ancient gurgling irrigation systems.
Snuggle into high thread Egyptian cotton sheets. Luxury toiletries and fluffy bath towels await you with stylish simplicity.
Your day ends with a mindfulness meditation session guided by teacher Brian Hilliard. The practice space is a panoramic glass shala with a traditional Berber tent roof, thick carpets, and Atlas views. There you will learn the techniques and practice of sitting and walking meditation. Talks, discussions, and some silence for inner reflection make the experience complete.
During these sessions, you will acquire the tools needed to de-stress and gain greater peace and relaxation. You will learn how to mix meditation with daily life, let go of what is unimportant, and cultivate greater kindness.
You will relax and experience the art of letting go. The sessions are suitable for both beginners and advanced practitioners.
This is an optional session for runners and walkers. Running with meditation is an introduction to meditation in movement. Reach the zone easily with practical instructions for combining mindfulness and movement.
Like running, you meditate with the body. If you set the body up in a good posture it can automatically affect your mind. Your busy mind settles down, you breathe better, and you begin to separate the trees from the forest. Your vision opens out and you begin to smile. It all comes about because you learn to relax and be kind to yourself.
If you really get into it, meditation is about feeling good without conditions. It’s contentment with what you have. Runner’s high feels the same way because there is a mind and body synchronicity that comes from being fully present in the movement. You might feel that you want to run forever, or meditate forever. You can feel good in whatever you do, whether you’re moving or sitting still.
Running with meditation connects you to the mystery of life. You connect with your power as you burn calories with amazing reserves that can keep you going for hours. Sometimes there’s an amazing outflow of ideas and bursting energy to initiate great projects. Meditation also connects you to that mysterious source.
This yoga is suitable for all levels of fitness and ability. During these sessions, you will practice Yin and Hatha yoga styles, strengthen and align body and mind, gain confidence in your natural balance and harmony, as well as access and work with deep emotion through working with the body.
Brian carefully and expertly guides beginners and experienced meditators through all the steps of mindfulness meditation.
