UNVEILING: DIVINE SANCTUARY::

NOVEMBER 18-22, 2017

MARRAKECH, MOROCCO

AT THE LEGENDARY RIAD ENIJA

“This riad is also steeped in a rich history, which is felt most profoundly when I’m in the open-aired, enclosed courtyard.”
–Mara Hoffman
for Vogue

Sherene Vismaya and Chloe Garcia Ponce

will be offering a retreat focusing on the unveiling of Self through healing rituals and sacred space. We will be focusing on the power of intention through mantras, creating our own mesa (altar), as well as activating them. 

As we explore the magic of Marrakech

the “Red City” named for its’ rose stone walls, founded in 1062. We will be visiting the town of Lalla Takerkoust in the Atlas mountains, chiefly known for its nearby dam and lake and is a great place for camel riding or simply admiring view of the peaks.

The setting is a 200 year old silk traders palace, named Enija.  The noise and hustle and bustle of narrow alleyways of the Jemaa El Fnaa Square in the Medina disappear as if by magic to be replaced by the gentle gurgling of the fountains and birds singing in the garden the end result of which is, of course, utter peace and a total escape from it all.This beautiful Riad has 12 spacious and enchantingly decorated rooms and suites, tropical gardens and fountains around each corner. Perfect to host a mystical retreat, the magic does not end here, as you open the doors you step into the heart of Marrakech’s humming souks, collorful alleys and bustling bazaars. There is a famous private in-house chef creating the most authentic, sensual and healing Moroccan cuisine you can imagine. The famous Moroccan tea ritual is an integral part of this paradise.

Above the entrance at Ali ben Youssef Medersa, an inscription reads,‘You who enter my door, may your highest hopes be exceeded,’ and the jewel-like courtyard that awaits certainly lives up to the promise’.
