Souldust Morocco: Awaken Your Inner Alchemist 2019

May 11-18, 2019
Morocco
The call to Souldust Morocco... Wandering a foreign destination with Souldust is a field trip to sensory freedom, with an close-knit community of humans you never knew you needed in your life. Outside of the hum of daily life, you have permission to wake up, be fully yourself, and open up to new experiences. Deep connection to a new place, new people, yourself seeps into your very being. You see yourself mirrored in others, feel the strange familiarity of a land or cityscape. And you return home different. Refreshed. Energized. A bigger, brighter version of yourself.Join Souldust on an incredible week in Morocco, where we awaken our inner alchemists by moving with the colorful rhythms of this North African culture. Brightly colored markets lining ancient winding alleyways, filled with magic carpets, brilliant lanterns and vibrant spices. Palm readers, snake charmers, henna-painted hands, mysterious music drifting across a desert landscape. Rich, exotic food to delight and satisfy the senses, served in courtyards hidden behind brightly colored doorways.Your guide will lead you on a playful, intuitive journey of the soul that includes creative activities and unique cultural experiences and excursions. Land of the mischievous djinn, Morocco will transform you, gifting you colorful tales of desert nights and sensory delights. She will whisper to you at every corner you turn, inviting you to wake up, wake up, wake up.Morocco was a colorful and glorious rush of sights and sounds. As I arrived there I was greeted by a Souldust guide, given a primer on magic and then we dove into the heart-first adventures. The hikes, drives, tours and experiences gave me a snapshot of a rich, ancient culture while I learned about my intimate band of like-minded travel mates.  The week was filled with laughter, fascination, and joy.  I came back refreshed and better connected to my sense of wonder and I was ready to take on my life with a fresh perspective and a sprinkle of magic. ~ Maureen J., 2016 Morocco retreat guestSouldust Morocco is for the one who…Has a burning curiosity about and desire for new experiences and culture, Can feel the intuitive depths within, possibly even a restless energy waiting to be released, Wants to better understand how to play in those depths, and integrate them into daily living, Is ready to call in a bigger, brighter, magic-filled world for themselves, and Craves soulful community filled with laughter + deep connections.It's for the alchemist in you. The alchemist is one who transforms the mundane into the fantastic. Water into wine. Lead into gold. The grind of life into a wonderland of gratitude and potential.This is not about manifestation, trying to call in that new relationship, dream job or new house. This is also not about ignoring the more difficult aspects of life, or pretending that if we only think good thoughts, good things will happen. This is about waking up the part of you that hears the call of the world around you. The world that is waiting for you to come out and play, to shine. We are ALL full of colorful light bursting at the seams. Imagine it coiled inside, eager to be released. We just need to give ourselves permission to wake up to what's around us and in us. To invite, acknowledge and integrate our own magic. That's when the fun really begins.Are you feeling the longing for transformation from within?  Can you sense the opportunity for co-creation, but it feels blocked or uncertain? If this sounds like you, then Morocco is going to be your jam. We see that twinkling magic wand hidden in your back pocket, lovely. [arrow]Our mystical Moroccan experience...7 nights accommodations at the luscious Peacock Pavilions, which we will occupy exclusively for the duration of our retreat. We love intimate locations that are beautiful while still being comfortable, operated by heart-centered people who welcome you with open arms. Nestled in 5 acres of olive grove just outside of Marrakesh, Peacock saturates the senses with its curated decor and cozy spaces for gathering and relaxing. Every room is amazing. The food is amazing. The hosts are amazing. Rooftop deck at sunset?  Yes, please. You will love it.Daily soul-expanding practices. You know you've heard it. That whisper of instinct nudging you to act, but you stayed safely inside the rules, the guard rails. You have felt the possibility in the world, the itchy edges of a giant technicolor awakening, but you don't know how to tap into it... What if... you could call on signs, dreams, synchronicity, and intuitive hunches? What if... you were capable of co-creating a life of integrity and purpose? What if... you could transform everyday experience into whole-hearted intentional living?Every morning, after a delicious breakfast, we prepare for our day of alchemy, gathering our energetic practices and tools for playing with the bright energy of Morocco, learning how to elevate everyday experience into the extraordinary.Daily excursions and activities that engage with the soul of this culture. We believe travel retreats are meant to be experienced through curiosity and exploration, not socked away all day looking at the walls of a hotel meeting space. That's why all Souldust retreats are packed full of gorgeous experiences that engage all the senses. This Morocco retreat includes a Moroccan cooking lesson, a guided tour of the historic sites and lively souks (markets) of Marrakesh, a relaxing spa day at a renowned hammam, an all-day trip to the charming coastal town of Essaouira with an optional camel ride on the beach, and an outing to the Atlas Mountains for a hike or mule ride... and more. Goats in trees? Check. Gorgeous Moroccan textiles and tile work? Check. Endless invitations to share Moroccan tea? Check.In the evening, we will gather for delicious meals either at the Pavilions or in a Moroccan town. At least one night, we will wander the exotic, mystical market square of Marrakesh - home to snake charmers, fortune tellers, dancers, storytellers and more. At the Pavilions, our evening activities include henna tattoos and an outdoor movie night under the stars. And, no worries, there will also be free time to unwind by the swimming pool or head back into town to haggle in the markets for gorgeous Moroccan pottery, rugs and spices.Delicious organic meals at the Pavilions, made fresh with local, seasonal farm-to-table resources and served either outdoors on the terrace or in the gorgeous Moroccan dining tent. Several evenings at the Pavilion will include cocktails & canapés before dinner is served.

Everything you see has a story to tell, with treasures gathered the world over. We have exclusive use of the property that includes rooftop decks, a quirky library, seating and dining areas for intimate discussions and cozy meals, and a spiral staircase leading to a catwalk high in the air, where you can sit on vintage embroideries and admire the view.The breathtaking beauty continues in the guest rooms.

Following the signs has led her to amazing experiences, opportunities and relationships, as well as clearing space for growth and healing.As the founder of Souldust, she is obsessed with building a community of people willing to see and be seen, listen and be heard, a community that welcomes in all walks of life with open arms and hearts. In travel retreats, Rachel delights in exploring and experiencing new cultures with wide-eyed, friendly curiosity, open to absorbing it all through conversation + connection. From the minute I signed up, I knew I had found a new tribe. When we drove up to our residence for the week, I was blown away. It was stunning.  The room was luxurious and welcoming. Rachel, Jennifer and the other attendees felt like instant friends. And the week only got better. I loved every outing and appreciated the impromptu moments of reflection and companionship. The new friendships made each new memory more sweet. We laughed, we adventured, we learned, we reflected, we supported.  It was more than I could have dreamed of.  The guides were flexible and attentive to our varying needs, checking in to make sure we were feeling connected and energized each day.  I left with zero complaints and a heart full of warmth. To have all of this within an amazing country was unreal.  I can't wait to attend another Souldust retreat.  ~ Juliana M., 2016 Morocco retreat guest   Ready to wander with us?

Souldust Personal Exploration

Scheduled
Sign up for 20-minute free consultation
Have you ever seen a heist movie with an expert safe-cracker? He gets out his trusty stethoscope and holds it to the door of the impenetrable safe. Everyone holds their breath while he turns the dial, one click at a time, until he hears the tumblers and pins move in perfect harmony, and the door to the safe swings open.You are an expert to the safe that is your soul, you are the one who can pick the lock. But you need to quiet yourself and listen. And you might need help remembering what to listen for - what does it sound like for those tumblers to fall into place? It’s hard to remember, isn’t it? There is a hunger for clarity and truth, to fully remember ourselves and be seen by others. Why do people enjoy Cosmo quizzes and online tests? There’s a popular website dedicated to random, unscientific tests … we complete one after another and share the results in Facebook. I’m this 80’s movie character! My ideal city is Barcelona! We are both trying to validate our perceptions of ourselves but are also curious about what might show up that we’ve forgotten.(For the record, I’m Mia from Ferris Bueller, my ideal city is Paris, my Myers Briggs is INTP, my Fascinator is Mystique, my astrological sign is Aquarius and Chinese zodiac sign is the Pig, the list goes on…)Sometimes you just need someone to look and listen and mirror back to you what’s going on. We’re all seekers and safe-crackers, but we’re looking through a window that is grimy on the outside. Let someone else rub a little dirt off the window for you.A Souldust Guide doesn’t have preconceived notions about who you are or who you should be. We listen, observe and reflect with you. We explore the dreams that may feel unreachable, and challenge perceptions that feel like they might be irrational.Through guided Souldust Exploration, we dig into recollecting who you are, at the core. Stop acting so small, you are the universe in ecstatic motion. - Rumi Rather than relying on arbitrary online tests, we harness tools for remembering, including creative activities such as intuitive collage, personal mandalas and maps, “homework” adventures as explorers of the world, and more. We borrow from tried-and-true practices such as the 8 limbs of yoga, mind mapping, chakra energetics, the Desire Map, and the Artists Way. These tools and practices are blended together for a custom coaching experience suited to where you are on your journey.On this journey, you test your intuition and get to know yourself again, setting aside distractions and judgments. It’s all about seeing and hearing that quiet voice from within, consistently. And, by doing so, you remember what you need to create alignment and live with ease, even thrive, despite the dustiness of day-to-day life. I don’t believe everyone needs a dramatic overhaul to have more ease, joy and energy. Just like extreme diets, great dramatic overhauls are usually not sustainable, and may be out of reach for those living with realities of fixed responsibility. But, there are ways we can tweak perceptions of these realities,  introduce change that will create more alignment and make you go “aaah, there I am." To open the safe, clear the haze from the windows. And then, sometimes, a dramatic change is exactly what is needed.Souldust Guided Exploration can be a one-time conversation to dig into a specific area or question. It may be to provide a fresh perspective, reignite a dream you’ve been hesitating to chase, or bring clarity to an idea that’s on the cusp of breakthrough. Or it can be a series of mentored explorations, where we collaborate to rediscover your soul’s journey.Contact us below to schedule your free introductory consultation. We'll determine if we’re right for each other, and what our journey together might look like.[gravityform id="12" title="false" ajax="true" description="true" tabindex="20"]

Something magical happens when we step outside. The sun on your face, the wind in your hair. You are completely and utterly in the moment, connected to nature – your soul and mind in complete alignment. Anything is possible.Maybe you’re feeling scattered. Shaky. Ungrounded. It’s time to breathe fresh air and get back in touch with your primal instinct. In our camps, you can step away from the chaos of everyday life and find firm footing again. Our activities will ignite your senses and inspire the rituals your soul craves. In nature, you and newfound soulmates will find space. Connection. Clarity. Firmly rooted, you’ll be more in tune with your instinct than you’ve been in a long, long time.
You’ve gotten good at wearing a mask. In today’s 24/7 connected world, you layer on the armor of what others expect of you – your boss, parents, kids, significant other. You’re so used to reacting that you’re not even sure what makes you tick anymore.What if you were seen and accepted exactly as you are? Who is that person? Do you remember? How do you turn that gray numbness into brilliant technicolor? How do you feel vibrant, warm and alive again?If you’re feeling lost or out of alignment, it’s time to get creative. Your intuition is under there, like a tree bud in winter. It knows you. You just need some tools to give it a voice again.  Souldust workshops engage from the heart, helping that inner voice of your true self emerge and shine.
Magic happens when we travel. We feel freedom - discovering new sights, sounds and smells. Like a child, you are never more alert and present than when everything is unfamiliar. You are awash in wonder. You feel lighter, expansive, open to possibility.In this sensory overload you find yourself. The vibrant pulse of a bustling city or the quiet majesty of a mountain ridge awakens your senses and ignites your creativity. It envelopes you, seeping into your bones and your heart. Your intuition comes into sharp focus once again.You feel connected. To this new place. To new people. To yourself.Ancient thinkers refer to this connection as anima mundi, or the soul of the world. The entire world as a collective soul and intelligence. No matter where we go or who we are with, we are all parts of this same soul. You feel this connection more profoundly when you take yourself out of your familiar day-to-day life and awaken your senses. In this way, you come back to yourself. You recognize your place in the world. And you realize that no matter where you are, you’re at home.
Have you been killing yourself over a life or business goal, but not sure why the prospect of achieving it feels heavy and hollow? Is there a restlessness — you know you’re not where you want to be but not sure where “there” even is? Are the everyday stresses and demands of “being who you’re supposed to be” tarnishing the brilliance within you? Are you even sure who “you” are anymore?The real you is in there and she’s yearning to be heard. You just need tools to hear what she has to say.  If you have a specific dragon that needs slaying or a knot that needs untying so your work and life can feel more “right”, come explore your path with a Souldust Guide. Together, we'll take aspects of sensory exploration, creativity, intuitive practice, ritual and more and swirl them together to create a custom catalyst just for you. So you can make meaningful, healthier decisions. Stand comfortably firm amidst the chaos.Let’s get practical and playful to create the life you really want, and align who you are on the inside with what you experience on the outside.

“Camp Souldust brought me in closer contact with my intuition, and provided a safe warm space for me to exercise listening to my inner ‘yes and ‘no’s.”

“Camp Souldust is full-on magic that will help you remember who you really are, and how this whole game of life is truly meant to be played. It is a gift to your soul.”

“It was a beautiful and life-changing event for me.  At times I felt exhilarated and at other times I felt pain in a very deep place within, but I know that pain can often come with true self-work.  It’s just plain HARD at times to be truly honest with oneself and lay it bare for others.  Rachel and the other leaders were quite simply amazing and so full of knowledge, love, and acceptance.  It felt like an incredibly safe place to be as I and the other women became not only vulnerable to each other, but also to ourselves.  I walked away from the event feeling like I better understanding of myself and as well as a beautiful, loving, and trusting sisterhood.”

It was incredible. Rachel was an amazing facilitator. There were so many small details that made it magical.  The exercises that she walked us through helped me to dial into my first CDF’s. It was a safe space for sharing and self reflection. A poetry reading. A spiritual yoga practice. Sisterhood.

“Words I would use to describe Camp: Spiritual, magical, enlightening, challenging, granola, grown-up summer camp, awe inspiring, peaceful, earthy.I had such a beautiful experience at Souldust. It was very interesting to see the wide range of personalities in the campers and share the journey with like-minded…..weird people.Wherever did so many different yet the same people find a path to each other? Kismet. I have a long way to go on my discovery journey and Souldust was but another step in the right direction. It’s an awesome feeling to be so free from conventional life. Ahhhhh…”

“I loved the carefree atmosphere you created by unleashing my messy monster. tearing into paper and throwing it on the floor was liberating. I loved that I did not have to make too many choices. This could have gone art depot crazy with glitter, stencils, markers, etc. which would have totally overwhelmed me.”

Intuitive collage has become a part of my whole being. I find myself needing it most when my head is cluttered and heart, shuttered. Upon completion of a small page, my soul feels heard, and mentally I am clearer to carry on about living, having wiped off the fog. In short, it is a sustainable practice for listening to the quiet voice.

“Memorable, visionary, everyone should experience it.”

“This is an intimate learning process about oneself.  One can really dive deep into themselves/their soul, and your insights can really make a person feel or see something that has been in their “blind spot” for a short or long period.”

“If you ran them quarterly, I would go quarterly. I have a pretty high stress corporate job, and don’t often have the opportunity to spend time in the woods getting in touch with my divine feminine and tuning in to my intuition. I am completely grateful that Souldust exists, and that I found it. I believe in magic, but some places and people and experiences make it easier to believe in magic than others, and Souldust is pure magic. We all need more magic.”

“This was an absolutely incredible, potentially life altering, amazing experience in a deeply beautiful setting, a chance to reconnect to your childlike self and to connect with other phenomenal people, an opportunity to check out of the hustle and bustle and check into your heart, mind, body and soul… and to connect and share with and learn from other beautiful souls. Camp connected me back to my spiritual side and helped me release some sadness and anxiety from 20 years ago.”

“This workshop was about telling my mind and my mouth to take some time off and let my heart and subconscious do some talking. I ripped and cut images and words with abandon. When I finished, what I saw was a little freaky. I had put things that related to each other next to each other. I had a story to tell about where my inner self was that day. My heart was telling my head things to make me more aware of what I was feeling.”

“It’s hard to describe the synergy and magic that happens when you get a group of soulful, like-minded spirits to congregate in the woods for 4 days of soul searching and talking about plants and trees, how to live a break through life, finding your spirit animal, beading malas, being enveloped by a sound bath, learning the power of a pendulum, bonding with gorgeous souls and SO much more.”

“I’m not really a crafts kind of person and I not only found this fun, but also fascinating. I found this exercise to be an incredibly effortless way to peel back the layers of pretense and see and articulate different aspects of myself in a way I wouldn’t have otherwise.”

“Camp Souldust is soul rejuvenation. I needed a community that feels the same way I do and I found it here.”

“The experience was challenging, enlightening, and stays with you as you continue to explore what the picture you made means to you. It was very interesting to just let something hit you although you’re not sure why it resonates with you. Also, Rachel was very knowledgable, which was great.”

“Camp Souldust is the most AMAZING experience I’ve ever had in my life with some of the most awesome people I’ve ever met! It has forever changed me and the way I see myself and interact with others.”

“Overall, my experience at the event was exhilarating, restoring and superb. I also loved meeting new friends along this journey, all of us live diverse lives, but this retreat brought us together for just a few moments that will bind us together for many moments to come.”

“Yes yes yes. I’ve always felt like an outsider. This tribe exists. It’s beyond meaningful. It’s beyond important. It fits my life’s mission. I’ve worked on the trails with recently homeless teens, with folks with deep pockets, with groups from Africa and China, with those dealing with deep social anxieties and existential depressions. These men and women of Camp… they were able to engage in the work in such deep and profound ways. I was deeply honored to witness it. I’m looking forward to continued relationship. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. It’s magic camp for adults.”

“My experience was awesome – I loved the combination of ritual and art. I totally felt safe; that a sacred space was created and held. I was able to explore, expand and contract as needed. I loved that we were all seen as capable and responsible for our own emotions – while also knowing there was support if asked. That’s the highest and greatest we can be for one another. Loved it!!”

“The workshop was fun, creative and enlightening.  Thank you for your perspective on our collages – interesting, thoughtful, and thought-provoking.  I think your title of ‘intuitive collage workshop’ describes it well.  It was fun, revealing, tapped into a creative side (which some people may think they don’t have) and intimate – surprisingly so.  The process provides an opportunity to get  a different perspective and reflect on oneself.”

“I loved that it was all intuitive, no thinking required and the results were organic, interesting, whole process was fun.”

“Camp was a magical experience, really. A chance to be real, raw, and truly let loose. A gift that you will never regret giving yourself. I learned a lot in each workshop. And I have a deeper appreciation for amazing people and finding the magic that we all have inside. Thank you for working so hard to make this space for us.”
