Join me on The Self Love Retreat (Gambia) 29 May – 5 June 2018!

Enjoy 10 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 29th May to 5ht June

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:

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

    • Who Am I?
    • Who I AM!  ( (inc. mirror work and affirmations to re-program the subconscious mind – BRING  HEADPHONES or earphones)
    • Self Healing through Forgiveness
    • Colour Therapy
    • Making natural skincare products together

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?

I’ve hired a lovely 4 bed villa for us to stay, in Brufut; it has ensuite bedrooms, an communal area, and swimming pool.  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 first Retreat!

Flights must be booked separately).  Breakfast is also included in the price.  (Day trips and all other activities are optional extras).  Book your place NOW (only 4 places left)

Village Retreat 20-29 Nov (mixed)

I’ve organised another Retreat in the Gambia for 20-29 November 2018, for singles, couples, and families!  This holiday is for those thinking of leaving the UK or USA, and like the idea of living in a village commUNITY. 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 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, or fully funded if I reach my target.  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!  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 Let’s Build a Village Retreat in November!   (21st-30th)

Go on, treat your Self!
