Find your vision in the silence of the desert 
from 03.10.2023 to 13.10.2023

Khamlia - Merzouga - Erg Chebbi - Morocco

I am an earth guardian. I can feel the heartbeat of Mother Earth, her immense love, her elemental power and her birth into love. We humans can help her by remembering that love is the highest frequency. Every loving, self-loving heart is a shining pearl in the grid that spans the earth.

The vision quest can purify you, show you your gifts into a self-determined life. You are a gift.

The desert has changed my life. It has called me and I have followed this call. Not only the beauty and clarity of the desert changed me, but especially the simple life of the Berbers.

MBarak comes from the wandering Berber people. His grandfather stuck his walking stick in the ground here on our site and settled down. He exchanged the long wandering through the desert for a roof over his head, a warm place by the fire, and fed on what Mother Earth gave him. This feeling of home we would like to pass on to you. Finding home in your own heart and the silence and the vastness of the desert, the simplicity support you in it

MBarak is a musician. The Gnaua music has black African roots and served and serves the trance of self-healing. In this ceremony (Leila) the instruments tune into the dancing body. This wordless and intuitive understanding will also support you in your processes.

The desert spreads its arms and you can let yourself fall deeply, relax and find your primal trust again. The heaviness will fall away from you, lightness will move in. I cordially invite you to my soul home. You are welcome, warmly welcome.


Are you ready?


Are you ready to unconditionally follow the voice of your heart?


We welcome you to the journey into the desert and to yourself.

The retreat takes place from 5 participants. If the vision quest does not take place at this time for reasons of our own or force majeure, we will postpone it.


The time has come for us to stand together in a circle, hold hands, breathe deeply and let the wonder of this beautiful earth touch us. Feet firmly planted in the warm sand, blue sky and sun overhead, until everyone feels the beauty of their own heart and sees it in the other. Love kindles love. Welcome.


MBarak Elboukhari & Zaida Karnowski

This journey into the desert is a journey to ourselves,
to the song of our soul.
To our roots and the old roots of the nomadic paths,
who we will visit in their desert camp for a few days.
Be still, listen, feel, feel...

Soaring ancient chants as we become receptive to the timeless moment, dancing on the warm sands...

... step through a portal into our true and beautiful being here on earth.
And true means true: all parts are welcome and find their place.
This is how peace is created in and with us.

What we will and will not do - the space where the magic unfolds

We will both immerse ourselves in attunements and sessions together, as well as be together in the special, ancient force field of the circle. In the times in the circle, we will mostly focus on thatEntrust flow. There will be enough space for you to be alone.Free flow and focus.

In the circle we share what moves us, listen to each other, and I will work there with what is on it. ...To leave old entanglements behind us and come into our original strength... To carry the song of our soul into the world. Through our presence in the body, the new age is born. Here we create space to let our frequency, the songs of our soul, flow into our consciousness and our body. Here in this retreat is the wide space to give yourself completely - to you, the earth, the cosmos and life.

Basic elements are:
  • dance

  • Movement

  • breath

  • elementary perception

  • Singing, rhythm, music

  • consciousness and soul presence

  • lineage healing

  • lineups

  • voice and expression

  • Balancing the nervous system, body and energy field in the Cosmic Earth Dance

 

In the morning:

Attunement with all senses: connection with the elements through touch. Silent sunrise tea: arriving in the here and now as the steam rises into the sky. Being close to the source of being and our soul. Greet and receive the warmth of the sun's fire. Breathe, ground, dance in dreams. awake dancing…

At evening:

We indulge in stories. Rewrite our history. Telling of the divine and the world, with words, silence, songs and dance. We let ourselves be surprised by the mysteries that may await us on these desert nights under a starry sky where our souls join in the sound. Here we remember our original nature and gifts, and while we are humanly at home in the circle of soul mates, our magical path awakens in the sparkling stillness of the night beneath our feet.
