Welcome to Morocco

 

As the plane hovers over the Red City, a city older than time, a glance through your window reveals a whirlwind of colour; pyramids of spices, locals in richly woven fabrics, and a thousand other exotic goods turn the market below into a living kaleidoscope.

 

You are one of 25 exceptional minds converging to create an international tribe hellbent on accelerating ambitious and emergent visions in the realm of human connection.

 

You may not know yet but, as you enter your home for the coming month, you are met by the very hearts and minds that will propel you into your next level.

 

You look around the room and can’t help but wonder…

 

What elements of your vision will come to life in this container?
What will feel more alive in your mission?
What will feel more alive in you?

 

There’s only one way to find out.

Welcome to Experience House Morocco.

OUR SANCTUARY

Only 20 minutes outside or Marrakech, our venue is an oasis in every sense of the word. Designed for artists and creators, consider this your sandbox for the next 4 weeks. Complete with a recording studio, an amphitheater fit for Plato, 4 pools, Turkish hammam, yoga shala, co-working spaces with fiber-optic internet, and the most decadent private rooms—you’ll never want to leave.  

AMENITIES

 

WELLNESS

You can count on daily classes at the Yoga Shala & plenty of downtime spent at the Spa. A timeless temple, readily available to refine & declutter the mind, body & spirit.  

 

MUSIC 

From live concerts and full-on festivals to improvised jam sessions and intimate evenings. Our venue is a well known sanctuary among creatives where they gather to compose, exchange, gain inspiration and co-create throughout their stay. Artists from all walks of life have claimed this space, where they allowed themselves to be  irresistibly invaded by a powerful, creative & rare energy. 

 

NATURE 

Think: Garden of Eden, where the aromatic herbs dance about the flowers and abundant vegetation. The venue is surrounded by 2 hectares of flowers, olive trees and rose bushes, offering a multitude of perspectives, scents and colours.

 

FOOD 

Chef prepared meals using seasonal produce that is sourced from organic, local and fresh farmlands, some of which are freshly picked and prepared from the permaculture vegetable garden! Our menu is curated to nourish our attendees and ensure they feel their absolute best, while experiencing local culinary culture throughout the wide variety of Moroccan flavors.

Your Chamber

Moroccan design is already world renowned. Add the inspiration of artists like Queen, Bob Marley, and Jimmy Hendrix, and you have a truly unique place to stay. Better yet, they all come with private work space, several have private pools, and a few are world class in luxury. Whichever room you choose, you have a space to call your own, but are only seconds away from the action.

PROGRAMMING

The majority of programming at XH is attendee-led, which provides a platform to experiment, leads to a deeply giving and generous culture, and results in unexpected experiences and moments we could never plan for. 

XH IS A SANDBOX

 

To give you a sense of what’s in store, here’s some of the highlights from our last program in Guatemala:

 

  • mastermind sessions, where the collective brainpower, resources, and connections of 20+ housemates were used to solve each other’s greatest challenges

 

  • meditation, yoga, acroyoga, breathwork, and workout classes taught by expert attendees

 

  • daily silk and acrobat classes hosted by one of Brookly’s finest circus performers

 

  • writing workshops held by an award winning poet

 

  • an “Amazing Race” around the colonial city of Antigua that ended in a mixology competition

 

  • a sunset dance party on the summit of a 13,000 ft active volcano 

 

  • an extravagant Arabian dinner involving 4+ days of food preparation, Aladdin-style costumes, an aerial silk performance, walking on broken glass, and a dance party 

 

  • TED-style talks (dubbed “Fuego Talks”) where attendees shared their vision of how we gather and connect in a post-COVID world

 

  • an epic closing party that went until sunrise, featuring some of Guatemala’s top DJs 

 

Of course, no XH will ever be the same. And that’s part of the magic. ✨

WHO ELSE WILL BE THERE?

 

We won’t release the names of our first participants until we get a little closer to the event. But for context, check out the epic humans that have joined our past events and are in our community.

You’re a leader within the world of experience design

You’re passionate about creating experiences that inspire awe and foster human connection.

 

You’re down to co-create

We do the groundwork, but the specialness of our space comes from the contributions of each attendee. We practice the concept of do-ocracy, i.e if you want something done, then do it yourself!

FAQS

What's the work setup?

This is a “work hard play hard” culture where you can continue to do your normal work throughout the month, but in an incredible environment with other like-minded creators. We’ll have dedicated workspaces, rooms for private video calls, designated work times, and possibly even facilitated work sprints.

How much structure/programming will there be?

This is a co-created gathering, which means a majority of programmed events will be attendee-led. This is a unique opportunity for you to share your gifts, collaborate, and experiment in a safe environment with people who will both love on you and challenge you to improve. You can expect things like opening and closing ceremonies, attendee-led talks and workshops, meditation, yoga, breathwork, dance classes, jam sessions, recorded “lightning talks”, nightly family dinners, co-created experiential events, and anything else the group decides to create.

Will there be an extension?

Half of the attendees at XH1 didn’t want the month to end and stayed for a 2-week extension. This time, we’re offering a 1-week integration & decompression experience in the Moroccan desert for those interested in an extra week of bonding and integration. Book a flexible ticket in the case you choose to extend your stay!

Are there scholarships available?

Yes! We strive to make Experience House accessible to amazing humans for whom pricing may be an obstacle. For that reason we’ve created a limited number of partial scholarships to support humans we’d like to bet on. 

 

Filmmaker & Photographer’s Scholarship

Do you want an opportunity to make amazing content and work with our fantastic team? Mention this in your application!

 

Local’s Scholarship

We’re looking for locals who are very familiar with Marrakesh & can provide the group with a taste of the real and authentic Morocco, which other tourists don’t necessarily have access to. You know your way around and love to share that with others?  We want you!  

 

Up and Coming Rock Star Scholarship

Do you have something special to offer unlike anything else? We trust our attendees to bring the magic to Experience House. If this relates, we’d love to hear from you! 

What’s the deal with the recording studio? Instruments?

You have access to the recording studio 24/7 Monday – Friday. On the weekends, the venue may rent the studio to third parties. 

 

You’ll need to complete a basic training in order to use the studio. If you’d like to do professional recordings, a sound engineer is available for hire on a day by day basis.

 

There’s also instruments on-site, which can be rented (we’re still working out the details of this). 

What will be different at XH5?
  1. The people. No more than 30% of attendees will be returners
  2. A larger focus on content creation. We’ll have a dedicated content team whose sole job is to amplify your personal brand + messages through audio, photo, and video. For those interested, it’s our goal to leverage our time together to accelerate the development of your mission and/or business.
  3. A heavy focus on wellness. We’ll be deeply exploring the question of “how can we feel most alive?” Reem Haddad (yoga instructor, holistic wellness expert, and our Exec. Producer) is designing a wellness program tailor-made to our attendees’ wellness goals.
  4. We’re bursting the bubble. We’ll be meeting and welcoming guest mentors in the world of experience design, having dinners + events with Morocco’s top artists, entrepreneurs, and changemakers. 

 

Morocco. We will be exploring a vastly different culture & experiencing local activities. Also have you taken a look at the venue? Jaw drop.
