'Awaken Your Inner Goddess'
Journey into the Sahara Desert in Morocco, 16th - 23rd October
Terms & Conditions
This journey is organised by Liz Barrington, Natural Energy
Therapist at Natural Body Healing and Tour Event Manager. With
your request to book onto this trip, you are confirming to us
that you have read, understood and have accepted the information
below which are our terms and conditions of participating.
About Our Tour:
This trip is aimed specifically at encouraging relaxation,
self-healing, self-expression and re-energising through group
dance, movement, drumming, energy exercises, visualisation,
meditation and other creative expressive techniques. If
there are any of these activities that you do not wish to
participate in at any time throughout the trip, then there is no
obligation on your part to do so.
Event participants will meet up in Marrakech, Morocco on
Wednesday 16th October 2013. Participants will be met
and collected at Marrakech airport and taken to the hotel,
unless arranged otherwise.
It is envisaged that most will fly in from various local
airports in the UK and others will fly
into Marrakech from Madrid, Spain. Individuals are
responsible for booking their own flights and travel insurance.
Our tour provides an opportunity for you to join others of like
mind to explore your inner realms whilst discovering
destinations that are different and perhaps depending on your
own circumstances, may not be readily available or possible for
you to experience alone.
Please note that this trip does not include individual healing
sessions. However, we will provide the opportunity for group
healing work so that we become able to re-connect with ourselves
and with each other. You will get as much out of the trip as
you yourself put in, and therefore your active and positive
participation within the group and in our activities will be
crucial to your enjoyment, experience and inner-journey. The
level of healing and insight etc that you experience will depend
Naturally we cannot guarantee that you will receive healing on
any level, but we do invite you to join us on an outward/inward
journey of self-discovery, where you have an opportunity to open
your mind and your heart, expand your awareness and take away
with you profound life-changing insights and experiences. No
matter how far you travel, transformation will only occur when
you are ready, because change can only come from ‘within’ … the
most sacred site of all.
During the trip, you will also get to learn more about Morocco,
Marrakech, its varying landscape, its culture, its history, the
Moroccan desert and the Berber people themselves. You’ll get to
watch the desert sunrise and sunsets, to star gaze and to
recharge your batteries. Through your own efforts, you’ll get
to re-discover your own inner-self whilst being in one of the
most stunning, yet most peaceful environments on earth - the
This tour is not primarily a tourist package, although we will
visit some tourist attractions throughout the week and we will
also learn a little about the local cultures and traditions
which will all add colour and depth to your experience whilst in
However, as always please expect the unexpected during your
stay. You can be sure that because we are in a country like
Morocco, there will be some surprises and perhaps some delays.
The culture is very laid back and standards are different to
perhaps what we would normally expect back in our own country.
There will be no printed menus; room service; perhaps timings
may not always run to plan.
Yet, you can be sure that there
will be an abundance of music, dancing, great company and good
local food. Dietary requirements will be catered for wherever
possible. All of this will be wrapped up in traditional warm
and welcoming Moroccan hospitality. We are certain that you
will fully enjoy this amazing experience with us if you just
relax, enjoy the moment and go with the flow.
Although we envisage this is unlikely, the tour price may be
subject to change at any time. This could be due to currency
fluctuations, increase in airfares and ground arrangements
and/or other unforeseen changes. Therefore, the sooner payment
is made to us; the earlier flights can be booked etc at the
price at which it is advertised.

The hotels we’ve selected during the trip are clean and
comfortable and are of 2* to 3* quality, with their own washing
facilities. We will endeavour to cater for one person per room
unless otherwise requested. However, should there be limited
room availability at any time within a specific hotel which may
be possible in Marrakech at this time of year; you may be asked
to share with one other trip participant. In that situation, we
will make every effort to find an appropriate roommate, but we
cannot be held responsible for this suitability.
Please note that in the Oasis camp in the desert, the facilities
are very limited, indeed there will be no shower facilities. In
the camp, there will be erected tents, bedding, a camp fire, gas
stoves, a kitchen tent and also a portable toilet. We will be
in the desert camp for approximately 2 days and we will be
experiencing an ‘overnight’ in the Oasis camp for one night
only, the magical night of the FULL MOON.
Therefore it is
recommended that you bring your own wet wipes, some toilet paper
and water with you just in case washing facilities are not
available. Please be aware, we could also be sharing the camp
facilities with other groups that may be visiting the Oasis
