Events

Like other organisations, we are running in-person events and continuing to hold online events as we have found them to be an opportunity to make new friends and contacts from the UK and beyond. It is great to meet with and feel part of a worldwide group of people who love and cherish our planet and all her creatures.

In Person:

We don’t have all the details of these in-person events arranged for 2024 yet, but you might want to save the dates, more details will go up very soon.

Snowdonia 5-Day Retreat at Cae Mabon

Friday August 30th to Wednesday September 4th 2024

Reconnect with your body and unwind in nature, walk with friends, breathe fresh air, listen to birdsong, wander in shady Oak woods and wild swim in a glistening lake whenever you feel like it, to say nothing of sharing delicious vegan and vegetarian food, songs and stories round the fire and a hot tub beside the rushing stream.

We have a 5-day retreat in the wild from 30th August – 4th September 2024 in Cae Mabon’s magical and inspiring environment, where we will have a relaxed programme exploring our relationship with the land, the sky, the fire and river and lake, and the liminal places and times where these worlds meet.  Our connection to each other, the spirits of the land and the elements support the creation of sacred times of ceremony.
The Wild Week takes place at the wonderful retreat centre Cae Mabon with its family of beautiful, natural, earthy structures provide appealing spaces for us to sleep, meet, retreat, work and play. Cae Mabon is at the foot of high mountains with breath-taking views, in an unspoiled Oak wood beside a rushing stream and a deep lake. We will include some local walking in this beautiful landscape. If the skies are clear, we hope to see the Perseid meteor shower and the Milky Way.
We will have delicious (plant-based) evening meals cooked for us, we prepare lunches together and can cater for any kind of diet.

The accommodation is shared and in eco-structures with basic bedding. The Retreat takes place in a wild, wooded, and rocky landscape with considerable inclines so we will be walking on hilly terrain.

ANAM CARA Mondays  (not bank holidays) 7 pm on Zoom

A gathering of souls who sense they are on a journey; for companionship and support.
We begin the session with a check-in and the creation of sacred space, (with meditation, a reading or silence). Then, maybe with the help of some questions, we will share from our hearts and witness the sharing of others.

ANAM CARA  (daytime sessions)

This is a group for those who prefer to meet during the day.  We meet at 10am on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday morning of each month, our next meetings are March 20th  at 10 am, then 3rd April at 10am.

(For more information & zoom details, please contact Hilary Norton  hnorton(at)greenspirit.org.uk )

Our Conversation CAFÉs on zoom

The next Conversation Cafe is  at 7pm on  Tuesday 23rd April 2024

Jenny Joyce & Hilary Norton invite you to join our “Conversation Café” – a simple, hospitable, empathetic space where fears & uncertainties about our future and the complexities of the world can be safely expressed. World events impact us all in many ways, and it can be hard to share our thoughts and feelings. This is an advice-free zone where all feelings are welcome! We don’t have the answers, but sharing helps us to build some resilience to deal with inevitable changes. This is an advice-free zone where all feelings are welcome!

Feel free to bring a cuppa, biscuits, etc.
