Do I need a visa ?

Please check with the Moroccan embassy. If you do require a visa, we can help you acquire one.

Should I get travelers insurance ?

The riad and transport included in the trip have their own degrees of insurance, but you are welcome to purchase your own coverage if you like.

Not at all! While Khalida and Brooke both have a love of writing in common and met through SISTERS magazine, this retreat is not in the least bit for writers. All the activities we have designed to help you reconnect to your Self, your Sisterhood and your Sustainer – guided visualizations, journaling, exercise, discussions, and creative outlets – are absolutely optional and participation is based on your comfort and preference.
