November 2018 Gambia Retreat (Mixed)

 21-30 November 2018

Join me in the Gambia for a 10 day holiday in the sun, where you will nurture your Self from the inside, out, and find out how you can be part of the ‘Build a Village’ project!  This holiday is for both women and men, singles and couples welcome!

On the Retreat we will visit Phase One of the Build a Village project,  Numbi Village, being built by Dawn Mbaatay (Organization).  They have already bought their land and will begin building soon.  The land I have my heart set on is within walking distance, and includes miles of untouched land right by the beach!  I’m looking for 50 like-minded people to get involved in securing this land, and building Phase Two, Kai Ci Kurbi Village.  (Kai Ci Kurbi means ‘come home’).  If you’re serious about making positive change for the sake of your Self and future generations, join us!

The brother in the video (in the blue) said the land belongs to him, but he has no money to develop it, and the government says that no-one can build there.  However, if we build a water-hole and submit a solid development plan, they will let us have some of the land.  Are you in?  If so, join us in November!  Read my Vision Statement  for >> Kai Ci Kurbi Healing Village <<

The retreat coincides with the Gambian Veganfest (23-25 Nov);  Dr Llaila Afrika is the main speaker, and you can attend any of the days you choose.

Also, Khensu I-Em Hotep, author of a brilliant book I edited  on Afrikan Wholistic Health (soon to be published) entitled Spirit-Osis (Spiritual Dis-order), the ROOT CAUSE of All Modern Dis-eases‘ will also be joining us on the Retreat to share vital information about Self-healing; this is going to be a powerful, informative, and life-changing experience, don’t miss it!

Frequently Asked Questions:

“Where will we be staying?”

I’ve found two black-owned resorts in Brufut; Garvey Lodge, and House of Ivy, both are within 5 minute walking distance of each other.

“Do I need to be vaccinated?”

Personally, I’ve never taken a vaccination either for Gambia, or my 4 month stay in Ghana; instead, I make sure that there’s hardly any sugar in my system (the mosquitos like sweet blood!).  I flush my system with Moringa powder mixed with water every morning, to alkaline my body.  However, if you feel safer getting vaccinated or taking anti-malaria tablets, it’s up to you.  I have been stung a few times, but I find that tea tree oil deals with them quickly, bring some with you!

“Do I need a visa?”

Currently, UK residents do not need a visa to travel to the Gambia, and flights are cheap! If you live outside the UK or Europe, check with the Gambian Embassy in your country.

“What is the food like in the Gambia?”

The food at the hotel is ok, if you’re a vegan, we can eat at The Healthy Ways Guest House.  If there are certain foods you like to eat, bring them with you!

“Should I change my money before I come?”

You can change your money at the airport, they don’t take commission; the rate is around 64 dalasis to the pound – but you might find that your money doesn’t last as long as you thought it might (e.g. I bought a 6 pack of 2 liter bottled water for 350 dalasis).  I’d say around £250-£300 should be enough spending money.

“What’s the weather like at that time of year?”

Admittedly, I was shocked at how cool it was in the evenings and mornings, but the days are very hot.  I was glad I came with my blanket lol.  Bring a jumper/cardigan to wear in the evenings/mornings, if you feel the cold easily, like me.

“Are children allowed?”

Children over 12 are welcome to join us!  (Families can have their own apartment)

“How much is it to attend if I’m already in the Gambia?”

500 Dalasis per day; if you book all 3 workshops you’ll get my Self-help novel ‘Journey of a Sister‘ FREE!  You’re also welcome to join us on the day trips (we may also go to Kunta Kinte Island if we have time) for the cost of each trip.
