Creative retreats to heal & rejuvenate the mind, body and spirit

Enjoy a week of relaxing, healing and connection in the blessed mountains of Andalucia!

Sometimes we can feel lost, disconnected, overwhelmed and tired of life. These retreats are dedicated to Muslim women, at whatever stage they are on their journey, to feel reconnected with themselves, and move towards finding wholeness and peace in their spiritual journey to Allah.

We have dedicated therapists and artist to explore one's inner world through art, nature and wonderful cultural experiences in the blessed lands of Andalucia. Time to relax, unwind and reconnect with love and with life.

Lanjaròn, Andalucia, Spain 24th-30th July & 23rd - 29th October 2024

As Muslim sisters we tend to dedicate our lives to looking after others. This retreat is a valuable opportunity to focus on your own self-care, stepping into a sanctuary of peace and letting the cares of the world melt away.

Healing the Heart & Rejuvenate Your Spirit

Here you can nourish your soul and quieten the busy mind through prayer and meditation. Absorbing the beauty of your surroundings and spending time and connecting with like-minded sisters.

Immerse in Tranquility

Healing therapies and massages

Sisters can choose from wonderful full-body massages and reflexology as well as 1:1 therapy sessions for healing. Group therapy utilising the arts takes place every day.

These retreats offer a truly transformational experience. There are limited places on these retreats to provide plenty of time and space for each participant to heal and to connect.

Creativity is a wonderful way to relax, spend time with other sisters and tap into a part of you you may not get the time to access! Whatever your skill, even if you feel you have none, art on the retreat can open a new world of enjoyment and personal insight! Hana Horack is a skilled artist and will guide you in sketching, calligraphy and craft. Including Tatreez, a form of Palestine embroidery.

Getting Creative

Physical movement can be an essential tool in the recovery of trauma and for our journey to well-being. There are daily walks in the local area and Tai Chi classes which harmonise your body's energies and a wonderful treatment for anxiety, developing your ability to be grounded in the present moment.

You can also take time to relax in the dipping pool in the beautiful warm sun, overlooking the countryside.

Attuning Body and Soul

Have a break from cooking as you enjoy home-cooked halal meals, many with a Moroccan flavour. We can cater for most special diets - so please let us know!

Tea and coffee available throughout the day.

Halal Meals


We also attend the Juma prayer at the simple local Mosque in Orgiva, attended by a special Jumaat, famous in this region, for living close to the ways of the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.). This BBC article mentions the community in Orgiva
