Do you want a wellness  break but not really into meditation and Tibetan singing bowls? There are plenty of other ways to release your emotions and pamper your nervous system. Aromatherapy, horticulture therapy, and more,  here are our top 4 workshops in Casablanca to try without delay.

We know that tactile activities  help to relax, reduce stress, and anxiety. With our urban lifestyles, we might not take enough time to touch, smell, and listen. Yet, there are a number of activities with comforting virtues. Most of them help to improve self-esteem, and nurture the mind as well as the soul. We’ve selected four workshops in Casablanca : Whether it’s workshops to reconnect with nature, allow you to express and manage your emotions, or to unleash your creativity, they all have the same purpose: to make you a little bit happier!

An olfactory escape!  

The sense of smell opens the door to emotions. We all have an odor, a scent imprinted on us, that reminds us of a memory. Just think of the famous Proustian madeleine; our senses can trigger our emotions!  To that end, how about trying olfactotherapy? That’s what Yacout Sijelmassi, a naturopath specialized in emotional aromatherapy and co-founder with her father of the natural cosmetics laboratory Charme du Maroc, proposes.

The principle of this workshop in Casablanca is to stimulate the sense of smell by inhaling  essential oils and seeking to feel a particular emotion. In short, you smell to feel better!  During these workshops, the vibratory aspect of aromatic plants is used, not their therapeutic side. You will also be able to create your custom perfumes and develop your own olfactory identity. These workshops are offered in individual, small group, and corporate deals.

More Than One Trick Up Your Sleeve!

It’s well known, potters have very soft hands! But more seriously, they are especially known for their great patience as well as their dexterity. Pottery is undoubtedly a meditative, soothing activity, and therefore a generator of well-being. We’ve already talked about the Atelier des Arômes and the discovery sessions they offer. Today, we’re interested in their newest addition: the pottery workshop is now offered in a training version. It includes four practice sessions that will make you a potter capable of making an object from A to Z. With mastery of centering, turning, and finishing steps, you will leave there proud to be the author of unique creations!

Green Thumbs Up!

It’s proven that “earthing” (being in contact with the earth) provides a sense of well-being. It even significantly reduces the inflammation that our bodies undergo. In Casablanca, Rachid Latouri is Mr. Urban Agriculture. Thanks to his Latouri Green project, he is also a leader  in permaculture. Since 2022, he has been working to green many spaces in the city: rooftops, balconies, courtyards, etc.

If you’ve always dreamed of having a small garden, growing your aromatic plants, or your small vegetables, you should definitely attend one of his workshops in Casablanca.  You can try horticulture therapy  (therapy through gardening) and realize how satisfying it is to touch the earth, plant seeds, water them, then care for and see the plants grow!
