Dream Visioning + The Art of Living Well
You are here to create a life that is an expression of your Soul. To create an Epic Life is an Art. The Art of Balance, Self-Care, Connection, Service to others, Adventure, Creativity, Spirituality, Friendship & Love, these are some of the elements that make for a truly meaningful Life.
On this retreat we will have daily Workshops with Pamela to do some fun Soul-Searching and explore what it means to live an Epic life. We will reignite the spark within and create a Book of our Dreams and Goals going thru all of the important Life Areas that will serve as a clear visual reminder for us to help us stay connected to purpose and on our path.
Dream Visioning is a profound and simple yet effective way to help us really define what we desire in our lives and how we can be guided to live our highest purpose in alignment with who we truly are and what we seek to create in this lifetime. We will each be creating our own Dream Book.
Follow your Dreams they know the way...

The boutique hotel consists of 2 guest pavilions; as well as luxury tented bungalows. There is also a pool, an Arabian dining tent, outdoor cinema, yoga tent, outdoor gym, and terraces overlooking sublime views of the Atlas Mountains.
Peacock Pavilions was designed and built by American author, blogger and designer, Maryam Montague, and her American architect husband, Chris Redecke. Maryam is Travel & Leisure's Magazine's Marrakech expert and a frequent contributor to magazines and brands. She has been featured on CNN International multiple times and was recently in the New York Times Magazine with her favorite tips on Marrakech. Maryam is a designer, hotelier and humanitarian, as well as founder of the #tribalchic lifestyle brand, M.Montague.
In the Fall of 2016, Forbes Magazine named Peacock Pavilions 1 of the 8 most beautiful hotels in the world.
The Food at Peacock Pavillions features farm-to-table, Authentic Moroccan cuisine with a twist. Everything is made from scratch. Their daily menu relies on local, fresh ingredients, some from their own gardens.
Breakfasts (included) - daily made bread from the village's communal bread oven (rebuilt as part of our charity, Project Soar), homemade jams, eggs or muffins, yoghurt, fruit, just squeezed juice, coffee and tea
Lunches - light and fresh (soups, salads, quiches, etc.) served with cookies or fruit for dessert
Dinners - three delicious courses, served by candle light in an Arabian Tent, ending in an herbal infusion from the garden to help you sleep
Peacock Pavilions prides itself in being Marrakesh's Do Good Hotel, and provides financial support to Project Soar.
Maryam and Chris founded Project Soar in 2013, a non-profit organization that seeks to uplift underserved girls in the area where Peacock Pavilions is located.
The goal of Project Soar is simple: to empower Moroccan girls through art, sports and health education. We help keep girls in school, breaking the cycle of girl marriages and girl motherhood.
The organization hosts activities weekly for over 50 girls between the ages of 8-15. Girls must stay in school to participate in Project Soar, Project Soar now has a headquarters in the village where Peacock Pavilions is located. The organization has received mention in multiple media outlets, including on CNN International in the Fall of 2015. Plans are currently underway to expand Project Soar so that it can reach more girls.
Your stay at Peacock Pavilions during this OmLuxe Retreat will help fund Project Soar, Peacock Pavilions donates 10% of all profits from the hotel and its Souk as well as its facilities to Project Soar, which is rapidly extending its curriculum and personnel to villages throughout Morocco.
There will also be an optional Fundraising opportunity for guests that want to help Project Soar with financial support via Crowdrise. Those interested will fundraise via the Crowdrise Platform setting up a Personal profile and reaching out for donations to their Social Media networks and friends to help raise money to empower Young Girls to become educated and self-sufficient.
Even a small amount helps and is highly encouraged. It makes such an impact and gives guests the chance to really make a difference in the lives of others.
Project Soar is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. For more information about the activities and opportunities to support Project Soar, please visit our website: www.projectsoarmarrakesh.org/

We will also support "Pack for a Purpose" and bring items to donate to this important cause.
"Pack for a Purpose" is an initiative that allows travellers to make a lasting impact in the community at our travel destination.
