Snowdonia 5 Day Retreat

At: Cae Mabon, Fachwen, Llanberis, Gwynedd. LL55 3HB

30th August – 4th September 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 Friday 30th Aug – Wed 4th Sept in Cae Mabon’s magical and inspiring environment, where we will have a relaxed programme to connect with the landscape and Gaia. There will be some time to walk together locally in the foothills of the peaks, through the oak forests and a chance to “Walk the Story of the Universe”: from the Big Bang, 13.8 billion years ago through to today. We will explore our relationship with the elements: the land, sky, fire, 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 Snowdonia Retreat 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 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.
