The Art2Life Morocco Retreat 2024

OCTOBER 17-24, 2024

Considered Morocco’s jewel, Marrakesh is home to exotic marketplaces, stunning 12th-century architecture, and world-renowned gardens. Our 8-day, 7-night retreat will be held at a luxury boutique property just outside of Marrakesh.

The Art2Life Morocco Retreat is an invitation to the aesthetic life—a way of being in the world that allows for greater well-being, true self-expression, and impact.

Nicholas and his creative team of coaches and facilitators will help you deepen your awareness and connection to your truest self, enabling stronger, more authentic art and life. Come find the true you, using art, far, far away from your ordinary life. Turquoise pools, music under the stars, candlelit trees, and new friends are waiting for you.

“Excellent teaching, facilities, food, ambiance, amazing community, warm and welcoming a safe place to connect with oneself on a deep emotional level with loving support from the team. Life changing”

The Morocco Retreat will help you:

Each day there will be two 3-hour guided creative sessions. All your art materials will be included. In addition, there will be optional opportunities to work with our guest mindfulness and embodiment facilitators. There will be group surprises and delights experienced as the retreat unfolds to better facilitate your growth and transformation. Your days will be punctuated by long luxurious meals, starlit conversations with new friends, and times spent in the cool pools on the property.

Over the course of the retreat, Nicholas and his creative team will guide you through the Art2Life Practice, with an emphasis on discovering and clarifying your art/life-making. The emphasis of this retreat is to help you make your art/life a more aligned, congruent expression of who you are and especially who you are becoming.

There are different room accommodations for this retreat. All air-conditioned rooms are next to or near a pool, and a short garden walk to the art tent and outdoor dining areas.

Become the person you’re meant to be through art - this October in Marrakesh, Morocco.

The change you seek is waiting just beneath the surface of yourself.

Additionally, all retreat participants will receive their very own Art2Life Retreat Art Kit!

Your art kit includes a set of 21 Art2Life high quality fluid acrylic colors, gloss medium, twelve 12″ x 12″ panels, a set of 8 brushes in various sizes, a painting tray, tracing paper pad, sandpaper, steel wool, pencil, and a 2-pocket apron.

"I loved that our needs were met and all felt so warmly welcomed. I was surrounded by colors that I love. The balance of younger and mature artists was marvelous. The hospitality added a fountain of care that exceeded expectations and which enhanced the feeling of being in a safe environment in which to open up for art making and sharing.

Every step of the way on this journey someone friendly stepped in to assist. I feel blessed to have had this experience in Morocco. The architecture is so different as is the climate and the absorbing of all this has kept me flying high for a week now as I am still trying to find my feet as the wheels are now very much set in motion."
