March 11-14th 2020 Mens Getaway


Enjoy 3 days AWAY FROM ALL COMMITMENTS to completely unwind and re-charge the batteries

You’ll come back feeling like the best version of you, armed with vitality practices to maintain the changes you make. (Suitable for ALL fitness levels.  You don’t need to be a runner, bendy or be a meditation master 😉 

 HOW you’ll De-Stress & Re-Boot: 

  • Atlas Mountain Walking with a difference: Learn Chi walking – a style of moving meditation with heightened awareness.
  • Daily stretch for common tight spots:  classes will relieve tension in your lower back, hip flexors, neck and shoulders.
  • Learn effective core strengthening exercises which you can keep practicing for life.
  • Learn simple mindfulness techniques to drain away tension and enhance your no 1 stress busting tool – your breath!
  • Detoxify with plentiful fresh, delicious and cleansing Moroccan food, much of it sourced locally.  All food included and all dietry requirements accommodated.  Evening meals in the stylish Moroccan dining room or outdoor bar area (awesome wines) and breakfast and lunch on terraces overlooking the surrounding mountains.
  • Swim, chillax, read and chat with others around two large, heated swimming pools 
  • There’s a great value Hamman/Spa on site for tension busting therapies.
  • Best of all, your OWN large, luxury Moroccan room with ensuite and relaxation area (some with terraces or balconies).  
  • Sleep deeply and come home properly rejuvenated.

The etymology of WEALTH is ‘welle’ meaning WELLBEING. Come and ‘fill up your wellbeing cup’ by completely getting away from it all with Mike Stephens as your host.  Make 2020 a truly powerful year where you feel healthy and ‘wealthy’ in the true sense of the word.  

As Eleanor Brown so eloquently said:   

 “When you take time to replenish your spirit, it allows you to serve others from your overflow.  You cannot serve from an empty vessel”.

We’re at a pivotal time in history right now.  The world needs men who can create a safe space for others but who also know how to express their own concerns and desires.  Men who have the self awareness to live life guided by strong boundaries and values.    


Your ‘Mens Getaway’ leader is 47yr old Michael Stephens.  Husband to Linda, father of three, business leader, career coach, Chi walker and run coach plus CBT councillor in training, Mike is an unassuming, inspiring and engaging facilitator.

His story: Last year saw Mike run his first marathon in an excellent time.  Two weeks later, at a particularly stressful time at work and after a sprint training session; Mike suffered a heart attack.

It turned out he’d run that marathon with two of his three arteries 95% blocked.  A year on and Mike has made an extraordinary comeback; but some major life adjustments were made to get here.

 Since his heart surgery, Mike has completely changed his diet.  He ‘chi walks’ and meditates early most mornings.  He’s changed his work role, shedding responsibilities that weren’t ‘heart friendly’ for him and he’s now in his second year of CBT counselling training with the intention of bringing stress busting wellbeing practices to the leaders he works with.   

 He can’t wait to get away from it all in Marrakesh and encourages other Dads to do so too.  As he says, “when your family rely on you, the most selfless thing you can do is take care of yourself.  Our health is our wealth”
