Monday 16th August – Sunday 22nd August 2021
Cae Mabon, Fachwen, Llanberis, Gwynedd. LL55 3HB
Six days (from dinner on Monday 16th to after breakfast on Sunday 22nd August 2021) in glorious Snowdonia, Wales at the wonderful retreat centre Cae Mabon with its eco-structures in an Oak wood beside a rushing stream and lake.
GreenSpirit have held an event at Cae Mabon almost each year for well over 20 years. Our “Wild Week” has changed over time and in 2021 it is evolving to be more of a retreat than it has been recently. We will have (plant-based) evening meals cooked for us and we expect that participants will want to fully engage with activities so that we can share at soul level; and embody our connection with each other, the spirits of the land, and the elements.
We will continue the practice of living together as community for the week, but will have a more structured programme, exploring our relationship with the land, the sky, the fire and river/lake and the liminal places and times where these worlds meet.
Our programme may include some pair work, writing/journaling, exercise (yoga/chi gung or body prayer), maybe finding our own spots in (and as) nature, vision questing, circle dancing, silence, dreamwork, storytelling, meditation, myth making, singing, crafting, drumming and ritual or ceremony.
If the skies are clear, we may see the Perseid meteor shower and, of course, the Milky Way and our final night together will be under the August (Sturgeon) full moon.
The Snowdonia Retreat is communal, and it relies on everyone participating and offering each other mutual support. The accommodation is shared and in eco-structures with basic bedding. The Snowdonia Retreat takes place in a wild, wooded, and rocky landscape with considerable inclines and away from major medical facilities. Therefore, the week is not suitable for all. If you have any medical or mobility issues, you must declare these in advance and further details will be requested before your booking can be accepted. If you book for this event, you acknowledge that you accept responsibility for yourself, your own well-being and personal care and that you have considered the issues carefully.
We will be taking any precautions that are still required regarding Covid.
The cost of the week is £350 including full board and accommodation. The deadline for booking and full payment is July 31st.
