The second you step off a plane in a new country where people speak a different language, the air is sticky and hot and you’re about to embark on an adventure—you grow.
This retreat is going to feature another layer than any excursion we’ve done before.
This Morocco retreat join author, poet, coach, director and CEO of ‘This is for the women’. She will be adding some special soul spice to the mix.
Janne notoriously states that her job is to share slabs of her heart for a living. Her superpower is openness—she finds vulnerability common sense, like breathing.
Guests will enjoy the usual empowering brand of unique Mad To Live magic with surfing, exploration and empowerment as the focus. The week will boast trips to Paradise Valley with its abundance of rock pools and small waterfalls, along with workshops with the all-female Argan oil collective and nourishing yoga in the rooftop shala, set in the golden-tinged beauty of the stunning beach-side Moroccan villa. Janne will be teaching three life coaching workshops throughout the week, which will be a balance of play and courage. Janne describes her workshops as a way of finding a part of you that “wants to shriek with joy at the madness of being deliciously alive and ground you deeply into your power, your voice and yourself.”
“For the past decade both Sophie and I…
have built a life in adventure, salt and words. We've been walking on different continents and building our own businesses but I see so much of myself in her. The only better thing than burning our own way as powerful women is seeing another woman deeply in alignment”
– JANNE ROBINSON
Throughout this week you will still be connected to your spirit and a-livened by the magic we always offer but we are also bringing in a different experience which will have a space for you to be with you.
Janne will be reaching 3 workshops throughout the week that focus on your relationship with creativity, your relationship with money, your relationships with your relationships, your relationship with yourself.
This retreat with be a balance of play and courage as well as softness, opening and connection.
We are living in a Yang world—especially as women, the time to conquer and make change feels like now—and because of this we are wildly Yin deficient.
Yin is the rest, the nourishment, the quiet, the stillness and the calm.
“Through workshops our aim…
throughout the week is to feed the part of you that wants to shriek with joy at the madness of being deliciously alive and ground you deeply into your power, your voice and yourself…” - Janne
