Daily stress, depression and anxiety have become a universal norm in the Western World, and one of the biggest issues affecting our human happiness, satisfaction and productivity.

High performing people have one thing in common - they feed of the sometimes-manic pace of their work and responsibilities. With that kind of pace and intense focus there’s usually a high degree of stress, burnout and even anxiety

According to scientists these emotions create negative thoughts and feelings, which in turn reduce our happiness levels. We think and talk too much, not feeling enough. We then escape to unhealthy habits to numb the pain. We get addicted to the pace of the race.

In the consumer world of today we are focused on achieving, owning, immediate response and gratification. Enjoyment and pleasure are things reserved for times when we can stop and relax. We buy consume and discard our joy, satisfaction, leisure and pleasures. The bar keeps going higher and higher. The overload, the nonstop activities and tasks, the technological and media saturation and clutter, the ability to reach people immediately, all add up, affecting our happiness and satisfaction in life.

In in retreat specifically focused around “Tempo”, we’ll breakdown this somatic element to help you unlock this special power within you to create more vitality. You’ll learn how to access the inner rhythm of you body to activate a natural “high” that can act as the antidote to the daily stress factors. This retreat will help you understand the role that tempo plays and how to tap into it when you need it most.

vue des patios en plongée.jpg
  • Body movements - accessing the inner rhythm of our bodies to activate a natural “high” that can act as the antidote to the stress factors of everyday life and generate more vitality for us

  • Super positivity – turning any darkness into beauty - developing the kind of mindset that sees gifts and growth in every challenge, even when we don't like the reality we are faced with. Living inspired.

  • Adventurous Courage – stretching our comfort zone and venturing into the unknown, learning to dare get past our fears, expanding out boundaries and saying ‘yes’ to all of our dreams.

Suitable for anyone who wants to push themselves beyond what they thought they were capable of and understand that they are only bound by the limits they create. Get inspired to live daily a life of enjoyment, open to possibilities, with an open loving heart. Understand that enjoyment is not something that just happens on vacation but is a state of mind that comes from in to out, allowing us to live a more fulfilled life. Join us for an unforgettable self-development retreat and activities in the pleasurable city of Marrakesh, with a special group of people and let the adventure begin.

Important - this is NOT a dance program, but a somatic personal development program.

You want to be successful personally and professionally. Chen Lizra avoids the pitfalls of business skills and techniques and instead takes you to the heart of the matter:  the human factor.  Your relationship with yourself and your body, your relationships with others. The body, our primary home, is where we learn to love, trust, and act.  Chen brings you home, and restores connection. Then she unleashes your confidence, the bridge to relationships. Emboldened and unstoppable, you take off for your highest reach. Her approach is deceptively simple, like all allegories that touch on archetypal stories.  I attended Chen’s workshop in New York, Odysseus came to mind, our quest for home and journey.  — ESTHER PEREL - PSYCHOLOGIST, AUTHOR, 2 X TED SPEAKER - USA

"I started working with Chen during a very difficult time of separation from a 20-year long relationship. I was disconnected from my body, overcome with trauma, anxiety and low self-esteem. Chen taught me the most fundamental movements and my body awareness was slowly awakened. I began to understand that I could regain the enjoyment that my body and soul desperately needed, and that Chen's somatic bodywork approach provided quicker results than any other method. My body movements had the power to let my overly judgmental brain take a break so that I could be in the moment with focus and intention. The conversation within myself began to evolve. I understood that taking responsibility for developing a vital and positive attitude was a skill that could be developed using my body and was impacting every aspect of my life." - JOSHUA KAMIEN - PHOTOGRAPHY PROFESSIONAL, ISRAEL
