The Power of Enjoyment: The Happiest Place on Earth is Within You


MOROCCO - SEPT 2-8, 2018

Power of Enjoyment

We cannot contain ourselves as we launch this new unique personal development program, for a select group of men and women from all over the world, in the beautiful city of Marrakesh in Morocco. In this program, we will expose you to secrets of your inner rhythm of enjoyment, allowing you to find the happiest place on earth – inside you.

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. But what happens when we cannot buy, when happiness depends a 100% on the emotional and social?

We experience a lot of stress daily, in the Western World, which according to scientists creates negative thoughts and feelings, which in turn reduces our happiness levels. We think too much and don’t feel enough. If we can eliminate some of the negative displeasures and find meaning instead, we will in turn raise our sense of happiness. We need to strike a better balance in life.

We live life like we are surviving it, yet there is a whole other way that we can live it, that we don't even know that exists right now. We need to get out of our heads and come back to our bodies, getting out of the addiction to doing and to social media, set healthy boundaries, and then learn how to produce a contagious joy of life worth jumping out of bed for. At the end of the day, do we live to work, or work to live?

Our positivity and joy of life affect the connection to ourselves, others and our quality of life. The program is authentic, practical, spiritual, social and magical. 




The focus of the program is to delve deeply into the 3 parts of enjoyment:

  • Body movements, that get us into a new tempo of life, that release dopamine and endorphin and make us feel pleasure through body movements, leading to a natural high
  • Adventurous Courage – stepping out of our comfort zone and what is expected of us, trying new things, getting playful, letting go of the 'no' and daring to explore the 'yes' where we get stopped
  • Super positivity – developing the kind of mindset that sees gifts and growth in every challenge and even in tragedy and trauma, Living inspired

You will discover these tools through unforgettable experiences, and activities on the enchanting streets of Marrakesh, and be able to embody these teachings to develop a new habit, living out of your true authentic self and pilling off layers that stop you.

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. This program offers self-discovery and personal growth for those who are willing to take the first step to make a change.

Invest in yourself, tap into the pleasures of Marrakesh, treat yourself to delicious healthy food and expand your network with like-minded people in this intimate 7-day adventure.

Become 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 a state of mind that comes from in to out, and connects us to ourselves and others.

Escape from the hectic pace of urban life and give yourself the space you deserve, surrounded by intriguing diversity and unique Moroccan vibes. Expand your limits and recharge from the sun and the summer breeze.

Join us for an unforgettable self-development retreat and activities in the charming city of Marrakesh, with a special group of people and let the adventure set you free.
