Step away from the wear and tear of your everyday routine.
April 15 – 21, 2019 – Spend it with us in Morocco!
Leave the pressures and guilt behind so that you can find and reclaim yourself.
Join your sisters lakeside in a relaxing, private riad in the foothills of the majestic High Atlas Mountains of Morocco, where you will have the support, time and guided activities to help you reconnect to your fitra-self.
The BIG Reconnect Sleepover is hosted by London-based psychotherapist Khalida Haque, and Content Director of SISTERS Magazine and writing workshop facilitator Brooke Benoit.
ALL INCLUSIVE, once you arrive (flights not included). You won’t have to reach for your wallet once except for the day we go souvenir shopping. We’ve taken care of everything so that you can simply relax, spending your time enjoying yourself and reconnecting.
A week of self-reflection and discovery at The BIG Reconnect Sleepover includes:

What’s the true value?
This retreat with the dozens of activities, tours, workshops, local transportation, meals, and beautiful accommodation would cost £1600+ if organized privately. We have worked hard to find the best deals for you as well as making this retreat a “principled purchase” by supporting many women-owned and family businesses, as well as non-profits as we can.
Also, we have found that the majority of our retreat attendees – even when treating themselves to this kind of holiday – will not treat themselves to the individual activities that make for a full retreat experience. This is why ALL activities are included in the retreat price, as well as most meals. Unlike other retreats where you will have to purchase all your activities as “extra activities” – nope, you have already paid for everything up front and can JUST RETREAT once you arrive.
All fees are based on double occupancy with bathrooms en suite. There are private rooms available for additional charges. Please contact us if you need to make arrangements for one firstname.lastname@example.org
