Come and Nurture your Self from the Inside, Out!

Are you looking for a holiday in the Motherland that will nurture your INNER and OUTER Self?  The SelfLove Retreat is for YOU if:

    • You want a holiday that will also support your spiritual growth
    • You want support on your Self-healing journey
    • You want to learn more about your Self (Who you really are)
    • You want to learn techniques to build confidence and self-esteem
    • You are open to transformation, using unconventional methods

The Self♥Love Retreat includes:

  • 5 Self-nurturing workshops for your INNER Self
  • A Pamper Day for your OUTER self at the luxurious Coco Ocean Hotel & Spa
  • Yoga and meditation on the beach
  • A day trip to Senegal to visit the sacred Bantang (silk cotton) tree.
  • Plenty of time to relax on the beach to top up your melanin, which is a short walk from our Retreat Home
  • A fun ‘Evening of Reasoning’ based on the topics raised in my Self-help novel
  • Experience the Gambian nightlife (Optional)

The workshops are around 2 hours each:

    1. Who Am I? (an indepth look into who you are and your life path)
    2. Who I AM!  (inc. mirror work and affirmations to re-program the subconscious mind – bring headphones/earphones)
    3. Self Love Card-Making
    4. Self Healing through Forgiveness
    5. Colour Therapy

You can do as much or as little as you like; I guarantee that you will leave with a new sense of Self, and with something that you’ve made for your Self that you will treasure!

Take the 30 Day Self♥Love Challenge! 

Task 1: In front of a mirror, look your Self in the eyes and say to yourself “I LOVE YOU!”  (It might feel uncomfortable at first, but the more you do it, the better you will feel).  Repeat this a few times to your Self, morning and night.

Task 2: Pour some water into a glass; focus your attention into it and say “I LOVE YOU” pouring your love intention into the water, then drink it.  For added potency, include a rose quartz crystal at the bottom of your glass. (This is based on Dr Maasaru Emoto’s water experiment, and that we’re made up of at least 70% water).

If you have trouble completing The 30 Day Self♥Love Challenge on your own, sign up to join us on the 30 Day Self Love Challenge starting 1st January 2019, or join me on one of the Retreats to get you started!

Frequently Asked Questions:

“Do I need to get vaccinated?”

If you have a lot of sugar in your blood, you may need to, as the mosquitos like sweet blood!  Having said that, I havent experienced many mosquitos.  To prepare for your trip, alkaline your body with green juice (I take moringa), and cut down on sugar.   But if you would feel safer taking the vaccine or tablets, do.

“Do I need a visa?”

Currently you do not need a visa to enter the Gambia, as long as your stay is for less than 28 days.

“What do I need to Bring?”

  • Bring warm clothing for the evenings and mornings which can be a lot cooler than the day, from November to March
  • Mosquito repellent
  • Tea tree oil will soothe mosquito bites rapidly
  • Bring anything you specifically like to eat
  • A warm smile and a hug
