If what you would like is to have time in the vast spaciousness
of the desert for quiet reflection, solitary walks or meditation Rabia would be
glad to provide you with a Desert Retreat. The Bedouins will build you
your own private bedouin tent (made of camel hair with adjustable flaps to suit
the weather) in a secluded spot near things that you might want to explore
during the day. The wide-open starry sky is all yours at night, either to
be solitary or with a few friends.
The bedouin tent serves as your home base. You can make
trips by foot, camel or jeep during the day, if you choose. Rabia can take
you to someone that does an energy clearing using metals, an herbalist or a
medical clairvoyant. All three are elderly Bedouin women with special
gifts of healing. You might also like to meet Rabia's father, the Sheikh
of the Alagat tribe (2,500 members). His mother is the primary midwife for
You can have the privilege of spending time with these desert
people, the last generation of this nomadic culture to live before they became
modernized about 10 years ago. Or you might choose to use this time to
spend time alone and away from other people. The quiet of the desert is
full of spiritual riches. It is no surprise that Jesus went into the
desert for 40 days before beginning his ministry.
Length of your retreat and location of your Bedouin tent is
personalized to your preferences.
