7 DAY HEAL FROM WITHIN RETREAT IN A SMALL
VILLAGE OF MADINA SALAM A HIDDEN
TREASURE IN THE GAMBIA WEST AFRICA
WYCE-GAMBIA is a hidden treasure in a small village of Madina Salam. This place embraces
you with so much love, compassion and kindness.
WYCE-Gambia NGO has been working in the village for 18 years, helping the development of
one of the poorest villages on the Continent. The village now boasts a Nursery School, a Lower
Basic School (Junior School) and also a Primary Health Care Clinic. The Clinic has helped
stabilise and improve the quality of health of the lives of the people of Madina Salam. It also has
a Working Lodge where volunteers from all over the world have come to assist the work carried
out here over the years.
Throughout your spare time each day you will also be able to be involved with the many activities
taking place at the WYCE-Gambia Lodge as a Volunteer. It is a wonderful way to give something
back to those less privileged than ourselves. Offering your time, skills and energy in the local
school as you engage with the children, helping out at the centre, bee keeping farm, the cycling
workshop, the clinic and more.
The WYCE-Gambia Lodge, based at the heart of the village, is where you will be staying on this
Manjit and WYCE-Gambia NGO have joined together to organize a Yoga Retreat with a real
difference. It will be an experience of a life-time offering time and space away from our busy lives
as we go back to basics connecting with Mother Nature, detoxing from technology and finding
our true self as we Heal from Within.
You will have the opportunity to experience Kundalini Yoga, Meditation, Chanting, Gong Bath, Yoga Nidra and Chakra Dancing in a selection of the most wonderful African settings, both in and around the friendly village of Madina Salam with the beautiful sunshine.
Plus, there’s plenty of free time to experience your own sacredness as you go deeper and giving time for self-renewal and reflection. Gentle walks to the local beach or around the village.
Everyone is welcome, whether you are an experienced Kundalini yogi or a complete beginner.
One of the settings for a morning or evening session is just a short walk to the beach where you
can see the sun setting over the ocean. This in itself offers a truly tremendous feeling of
oneness. Another setting on offer is ‘in the Bush’ where you will also feel ‘at one with nature’.
Your experience will begin at the Banjul airport where you will be met on your arrival by the
WYCE-Gambia Team who will deliver you safely on the 45 minute journey to the village.
Manjit will lead at least 3 daily sessions per day throughout your stay which will include Kundalini
