I took part in Restival in the Sahara Desert in Morocco in 2015 where there was a combination of meditation, yoga and other activities as part of a retreat. I chose to do a video diary of my experience, to use as a way to explore my personal journey and to use as a basis for a video to share with others.
The focus here is on what was going on inside of me as a result of getting out of my everyday life and routine and being in this retreat context. I was surprised to find how much moved and changed within me during such a short time, mostly simply due to allowing space for it and bringing awareness to it.
Part of the purpose of sharing this film is to encourage others to do the same and to give themselves space to see what is going on under the surface, as well as taking the time to break routine for a while and widen your horizons.
