Join me on The Self Love Retreat 23 Feb -1 March 2018! (Gambia)

Enjoy 7 days of nurturing your Self from the Inside, Out!

Are you looking for a holiday in the sun, with Self-nurturing workshops, healthy eating, exercise, and plenty of time for rest and relaxation?  Then The Self Love Retreat is for YOU!

Join me in the Gambia from 23 February to 1st March!

The Self Love Retreat is for YOU if:

  • You need a holiday with the added bonus of Self-nurturing workshops
  • You need support on your Self-healing journey
  • You want to learn more about your Self (Who you really are)
  • You want to build confidence and self-esteem
  • You are open to transformation of the mind, body, and LIFE!

The week includes:

  • 5 Self-nurturing workshops for your INNER Self
  • A full day of Pampering for your OUTER self (facial, massage, manicure/pedicure)
  • Yoga and meditation on the beach
  • A day trip to Kunta Kinteh island OR to Senegal for a Safari (optional extras)
  • Plenty of time to relax on the beach and top up your Melanin!
  • Experience the Gambian nightlife!

The workshops are kept to a maximum of 3 hours, and include:

    • Colour Therapy
    • Self Healing through Forgiveness
    • Who I AM ( (inc. mirror work and affirmations to re-program the subconscious mind – BRING  HEADPHONES or earphones)
    • Cooking healthy meals together, and learning the importance of healthy eating

In this Self Love workshop we wrote a poem (or letter) to our Self, based upon the Positive Affirmations we developed in a previous workshop.  We then made a card to our Self, which we can now refer to whenever we need a pick-me-up!

Where will we be Staying?

Ocean Villas Heights is a beautiful hotel  in Burfurt with a swimming pool, lounge area, free WI-FI, sea views, and a two minute walk from the beach!  You’ll be able to take part in as much or as little of the daily activities as you FEEL to; the aim of the holiday is for you to return home feeling RELAXED and REJUVENATED!  Read my Review of the last Retreat!

How much is it?

The total cost of The Self Love Retreat (Gambia) is just £599 which includes 6 nights accommodation, airport transfers, a Pamper Day, and 5 Self-nurturing workshops! (N.B. Flights must be booked separately).  Breakfast is also included in the price.  (Day trips and all other activities are optional extras).  If you’d like to stay longer than 7 days, send me a message.

I’ve organised two more Retreats in the Gambia for November 2018!  The Self Love Retreat (1-10th Nov) and Nurture Your Inner Child (16-23 Nov) For more information and to book your place go HERE!


“Do I need to get vaccinated?”

Personally I haven’t (even when I spent 4 months in Ghana) but if you have a lot of sugar in your blood, you might need to as the mosquitos might like your sweet blood!  You could do what I do, and alkaline your body before you come, by cutting sugar out of your diet, and flushing your system with Moringa powder mixed with water first thing in the morning!  But if you would feel safer taking the vaccine or tablets, do.

“What do I need to Bring?”

  • Bring a warm jumper/cardigan, as the evenings and mornings can be cooler.
  • Tea tree oil will soothe mosquito bites rapidly
  • Bring anything you specifically like to eat (I miss my roasted salted cashew nuts!)

Support a Sista!

I set up a GoFundMe to raise £3,000 to be able to offer subsidized places on The Self Love Retreat. This will enable sisters who are financially challenged but who need the Retreat to only pay for the cost of their flights.  If you would like to make a contribution to the Fund,  please  do so HERE – For our commUNITY to heal, the Black Woman MUST heal!  IF you would like to be considered for a place, 1) Make a small contribution to the Fund 2) email me explaining why you need it.

Are Men Allowed?

No, but they CAN come on the Nurture Your Inner Child Retreat in November!  It’s not too late to join us in February (23 Feb – 1st March), book your place now:
