Desert trip November 2019.

This is a journey you will never forget. A group of 16 women carried on all fours by the men of the tribe. With so much respect and never an uncomfortable moment. A safe space where we could fully be ourselves and open ourselves. We have learned a lot from these men. Beautiful stories by the campfire, singing and dancing and their jokes. Also how you can take good care of the entire community and make everyone feel welcome in their presence. We ate 3 times a day really delicious and did not pour or wash a cup ourselves. You don’t expect this in the middle of the desert. Such a luxury. The purpose of the journey is to give space to the essence of who we really are. And we succeeded. It was as if everyone’s inner sun began to shine fully. We have made tattoos in the most beautiful places to anchor this beautiful time on our body. The desert offers enough space to go through inner processes and the women went through a beautiful process together as a group. I enjoyed all of us in the group dynamics. Very laughed, danced, been silent .. but also cried. Each of us has found a lost part of himself in the desert … and left a part that is no longer serving. I will never forget this beautiful group of women. Sleeping under the stars. The tours through the beautiful desert. I miss you, the camels and the desert already. Thank you Deborah for your loving mission to organize these trips. You did that beautifully.


Travel to the Sinai.

I blindly embarked on this adventure and it turned out to be a life changing experience.
The nature, mountains, stars and tranquility that the journey through the desert brought with it every day in different scents and colors was an experience that I recommend to everyone, while the care and gentleness of the men who accompanied us took away all the last worries. This was the way to really experience and feel the desert, and the people who call it their home. Everything was so well taken care of and I just had to enjoy every moment. I will definitely go back, I want to relive this experience, and still take that same peace with me even now in daily life. Debra thanks for this gift, till next time!


The trip through the Sinai is just almost indescribable, it was so intensely special.

I went there without any expectations and let everything come over me.
The Sinai has a healing work due to its total silence and beauty. After my return home, the vibration kept buzzing in my body for a long time.
The total experience simply cannot be articulated and you really have to experience it if you want to understand what it can do to you.

Our tribe of 16 women all left a huge impression on me.
Just like the men of the Muzeina tribe who took such good care of us and of course the camels. I think it’s really so beautiful that Debra has made all of this true for us and everyone who wants to experience this. Something very unique and with so much love ❤❤❤❤


What a fantastic beautiful adventure and O so profoundly partly thanks to the continuous support of the Bedouins. Thankfully that I was allowed to participate in their world for a week and I can only say that I am 200% behind this project and will certainly enjoy it more often.


Although I have been home for a longer time that I have been to Sinai, I am still daily in my head

there. Still difficult to describe in words or images how beautiful, wide and quiet it is there, how safe and pleasant it feels to be absorbed in nature 24/7. And then I haven’t even talked about the wonderful people I was allowed to experience and share … Nothing but love and gratitude  🙏  ✨

Bedouin desert journey March 2019.

Ultimately safe space, held by Debra and the Bedouins, to meet intimately with Self, Nature and Others. The Sand, Fire, Food, Stars, Moon, Animals and Meetings naturally opened me up to be infused with Desert Medicine. I have come back as a different person than the one that left for the journey.

Special, deep, transforming and all of this in utter relaxation, because nóthing is asked from you but being yourself and allowing yourself to Be. Thank you Debra for this alchemistic co-creation with Mahara and the Egyptian sages.

Grateful to the Max!! Hilde Maria

Review Simba Sidhu

1 week of being offline and living the Bedouin life in Sinai, Egypt. 1 week of sleeping in the open air, bathing in the moonlight as the moon moving towards being full. 1 week of no shower & no toilet. I would find a spot with an amazing view for my need or find a spot on the other side of the hill or the mountain to wash myself. Being butt naked in the desert felt good! I saw and slept in an oasis for the 1st time 😍

The Universe planned to have 9 wonderfull women come together for this journey. There were 9 camels, maximun of 9 Bedouin men who were taking care of us. The men were SO sweet that it changed my perspective on how soft & gentle men can be once they are given the space & trust to be the softer version of themselves. The women shared laughs, tears, blue lotus tea, opium tea, stories and so muc knowledge and love! Thanks to the Bedouins we were completely in sync woth our beautiful and spacious surroundings. I have never felt SO safe with a group of people (whom I hardly knew in the beginning) and in such open spaces. I released a few fears and some of the harder layers of myself. We were so remote from the world inhabited by people and vehicles, it felt like we were on a different planet! Thank you Mahara Holistic Lifestyle and Debra Hempel for this journey inwards and outwards Thank you Universe

Review Veronique Van derschueren,

Words can’t discribe my feelings of our journey into the Sinaï. Thank you Debra Hempel for organizing this . Greatfull to our co travellers Daniel Eeuwens & Devlin, Eliane Smits Van Waesberghe & Lucas.
My greatest respect goes to Eid Ali and his boys, nurtering, guiding and sharing their Bedouin lifestyle with us.
Reconnecting to silence and nothingness 💓

Review eliane smits van waesberghe,

Live the bedouin life was a very special journey and experience. Very special to experience the silence of the desert and to get to know the warmth of the Bedouin. A journey that brings you back from where we come from at the core … contact and connection. Also great to be offline for 6 days 😀
