First surround yourself in a golden panorama of polished sands, allowing the peace of the desert to envelope you. Then allow your retreat hosts to compassionately support you to deeply rest and gently guide you to reconnect to yourself.

The BIG Reconnect Sleepover is back on schedule with our first retreat since 2019, and we want to make it an extra special one. Like most of our trips, this is likely to be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Don’t for a second doubt that – YOU DESERVE IT

Co-hosted by

Khalida Haque & Brooke Benoit

Your kind and supportive hosts are London-based psychotherapist Khalida Haque (Clinical Services Manager at Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest), and Morocco resident, artist, and writer Brooke Benoit.

Step One

Rendezvous at Ouarzazate.

Fly into the Moroccan city of your choice and transfer to Ouarzazate airport

Step Two

to The Riad.

Be picked-up from Ouarzazate airport by your hosts and head to the riad for a meet and greet dinner with your fellow retreaters.
The beautiful, traditional riad is exclusively for our retreat use, including the swimming pool.

Step Three

Into the Sahara Desert camp.

After breakfast, we will four-wheel drive (or you can camel ride should you prefer) into the Sahara Desert camp. The tents are luxuriously awaiting us with single or double accommodation options.

SADAQA delivery

The Bedouins of southern Morocco live a traditional lifestyle of moving camp throughout the year to feed their livestock. Most Bedouin families’ incomes are supplemented by serving tea to tourists. This helps cover their living, educational and medical expenses. For the past two years, Bedouin families have been completely left behind in the tourist industry’s decline in Morocco and are among the hardest hit by the Covid-19 economic crisis.

A portion of your retreat fee will be donated to Moroccan Bedouins. You are welcome to give more and/or purchase their handiwork if you can, but there will be absolutely no pressure put on you to do so at the time of our tea party.
