MOROCCAN MOON SURF & YOGA WELLNESS RETREAT with Carly Chivers

MOROCCAN MOON SURF & YOGA WELLNESS RETREAT with Carly Chivers

Join us for a week long adventure in magical Morocco as we explore as a community of sisterhood from the desert to the sea. We will travel to the remote southern region of Morocco to experience an authentic seaside fishing village. Stunning remote coastlines dot this region, backed by the Anti Atlas Mountains, with vast stretches of sandy beaches. You will find empty surf line-ups of all types of breaks: point, beach, lefts, rights and for all surf capabilities from newcomer to advanced. As we experience this journey together, we will work on opening our hearts and minds to new adventures, cultures, friends and our inner possibilities.

The cyclical nature of our existence is unavoidable. The waxing and waning of the moon and its pull on the tides, its pull on the waters in our own bodies (especially as women we are rhythmically connected to this moon cycle). 

On the other side of this cyclical nature is another certain bet, change. Everything changes. Our only constant is depending on the certainty of change. Seasons change and with it weather and ocean patterns across the globe. Plants seed, sprout, flower and decompose, returning to the earth to feed new life.

My good fortune is the ingredients are only steps away. Picking basil and arugula
from my herb garden and young moringa leaves from one of the numerous trees
planted on the property. Tossing all into the food processor with a handful of
peanuts and cashews grown on our farm, Las Salinas sea salt harvested some
kilometres up the coast and let the machine do it’s magic. To heat it up, I throw in a
minced scotch bonnet pepper from the garden. Move and smooth all the ingredients,
by adding a little oil, choice is yours. Staying close to home, I drizzle in coconut oil
my friend and neighbour is making. Then there are all the possible add-ins,
nutritional yeast, parmesan, roasted garlic…
