Not January, as usual – our next Marrakech Breathwork Retreat is in MARCH 2018 – a change is as good as a rest. #Spring Break

IMG_2577

This Years Theme is THE GARDENS OF MARRAKECH

guide-le-jardin-secret

 

To take advantage of Spring Weather we will be visiting and working exercises within The Secret Garden ( above ) in the heart of the busy Medina Souk with a lush Riad-style garden filled with an array of citrus trees. Once inside, the bustle outside fades into oblivion, with space to sit, listen, write and converse. Other Gardens will be visited also.

This is ‘Les Borj De La Kasbah’ the 4 STAR Hotel, Retreat, Pool and Spa set within the ancient Kasbah Medina we stay in. Read all about previous Retreats and Testimonials here. https://urbanlifeclass.me/category/marrakech-retreat/

The first 2 days we work in the Hotel, pampering ourselves with body washing in the steaming Spa Hammam and Breathwork in the Group Room, plus time and space to SUN by the pool, focus on written and verbal work plus book reading in a relaxed non-regimental schedule.

The Hotel has kindly offered us JANUARY PRICES, the same as last year, as well as 7 nights for the price of 5 or 10 nights for the price of 8. To BOOK you need to book your flight FIRST and to get a return for less than 100 quid – best to do it ASAP as prices rise on budget airlines. We can advise on this. Morocco is not in the Euro so although the crashing Brexit Pound is causing travel price upset, the country is cheaper than Europe to visit for Brits.

On the 3rd Day we visit the Ourika Valley outside the Red City at the base of the Atlas Mountains to lunch, wander and practice Evolutionary Breathwork beside rushing water, away from crowds, in spots we know and savour.

The 5 day BREATHWORK RETREAT is within a 7, 8 or 10 Night period of your choice. The Course itself starts on Wednesday 7th March till Sunday 11th. We complete on the morning of Monday 12th giving you a whole day sightseeing, shopping or just pool lazing. Or stay a few days longer. 10 days for the price of 8.

Flights leave Gatwick on Monday 5th ( if you want an extra day ) & Tuesday 6th but only ONE FLIGHT A WEEK from Manchester which happens to be Tuesday 6th, returning on same say a week later. 

les-borjs-de-la-kasbah

Single Rooms B&B from £330 – £495 for 7 nights ( with 7 nights for 5 nights reduction ) depending on standard and room size. This is paid WHEN YOU LEAVE, not before March 2018, with Debit or Credit Cards. Cash can be arranged to pay if needed. We pay all deposits to secure bookings for you, to make it easier.

The 5 day Course led by DAVID PARKER & LUISA BRADSHAW is different from previous years ( without our Meleeshka – she is leading her own UK Programme at this time ) but her verve will certainly be with us. The Course price of £350 ( including Hammam and Day trip to Ourika Valley ) is the same as the past 2 retreats, payable before March 2018, in one hit or instalments before or after.

Meals outside of Breakfast will be at your own cost and choice, in or outside the hotel. Better for those who want to try different eating experiences and places to eat.  More details on everything COMING SOON but a BOOKED Flight CONFIRMS your place. ASK US HOW.

Just contact David, Suzanne Moloney-Wright or Robert Beck for further info.

Marrakech Breathwork Retreat January 2017 – Early Feedback.

16174559_10155798464144966_1152922942375957742_n

“I came on this retreat last year and THAT changed my life, without doubt. Doing breathwork today with the most amazing group of people has surpassed every expectation that I could have had. 

It has been very deep work, but overwhelming in its content and in the range of emotions which it generates. I have seen major changes happen in others, honesty, trust, sharing and the most breathtaking energies holding the space throughout. Thanks to Robert, Sara, Suzanne and Jake for assisting so well.

Finally special thanks to David Parker and Meleeshka for doing the most amazing work and holding the space so beautifully. Tonight I am in a state of blissful gratitude, feeling the love and looking forward to the final few days.”  Mike Delaney RNMH, RMA, Cert Couns, (BACP, EAGALA) / London – Birmingham

16114622_1236270446409883_7326524676249858179_nKeith from Bristol was new to Urban Life Class – but took the risk, heart in hand and travelled to Marrakech with us. On leaving he posted this to participants on FB.

images-1“Just about managing to keep a lid on tears (not so lucky with that in the taxi on the way to here, Marrakech Airport ) after the most incredible week with a truly amazing group of people. It’s been non stop laughter, a few tears, and a new perspective on my life that I never expected.

I came away with 15 strangers and am going home with 15 friends. I’m so grateful to all of you, I just can’t quite find the words to do it justice.” Keith Conway / Bristol

Included also on the retreat is a trip on the 3rd day to the Atlas Mountains OURIKA VALLEY ( EARTH ) where we went on our 1st Retreat. So if you came last year, the experience and area will be different. We breathe by the flowing Valley river.

Mike Delaney reviews our 2016 Maroc Retreat

17th January 2016 :430062_3261424939950_872411794_nkeep-calm-and-love-maroc-34

“This week has been one of the most profound, mind-blowing, painful at times but spiritually healing experiences of my recovery.

I would highly recommend URBAN Lifeclass Coaching and Breathwork Retreats to anyone who wants to go that little bit deeper in self development work. You have to be brave enough to trust the process but, My God it’s worth it!!

My utmost gratitude to David Parker and Meleeshka for their knowledge and skills and to all of my new friends for their love, support and laughter every day. Thank you so much x “

FEEDBACK from last year:

“Well I can report back that it was one of the most joyous weeks of my life and perfectly placed for the beginning of the year. In fact I would say that a lot of creative planning for the months to come happened without even trying during those days…Onwards with abundance xx ( CH London England )

10922477_10153555402624966_2741312531345165532_n

“What can I say about my time away except that it was deeply needed and I feel profoundly honoured to have been in the company of so many loving souls. It’s been hard to get back to normality especially as I have to say goodbye to one of my oldest friends next week, who passed over, but I now have both the courage and power to do him justice as I say my farewell whilst being strong enough for my God daughter too, and I thank David and Meleeska for love, guidance and respect that they showed me over the last week, for without these things mixed in with the healing power of laughter, I wouldn’t be able to do it!! All my love to you both, always!! XO ( M. Somerset England )

“The retreat in Marrakech was stunning, beautiful beautiful people, amazing location, huge amounts of love and even more compassion, but throw in huge gales of laughter, it was beyond superlatives. All I can say it was the first break I had taken for ten years, and boy it was worth waiting for, the people were and are amazing, the breath work powerful and simply life changing, and the laughs we had still rings in my ears , roll on 2015, best decision I ever made … Thanks David and Mell big love xx ( JD Somerset England )
