My Story, Our World: A 3-day workshop combining mindfulness, creativity and storytelling for change-makers

17th – 20th July 2019

Cost: From 360 GBP

Storytelling makes us human. It is our narratives that shape our personal and collective experiences, as well as impacting and influencing the world around us. Stories can connect and inspire. And they can divide and destroy. It is how we relate to, and shape them, that ultimately
determines our individual and collective well-being – as well as our relationship to the environment we share with other species. Click here for more information and bookings.

This course is co-led with Bethan John, multimedia journalist, interested in how storytelling inspires action for biodiversity conservation and social justice. (www.wildlandscreative.com).

‘ReWilding the Mind’ weekend retreat

27th-30th October 2019 

Cost: From 350 GBP

Following on from a successful spring “ReWilding the Mind” retreat launched in May, a follow up autumn retreat in autumn 2018, and another in spring 2019, this retreat will give participants an opportunity to reconnect with themselves and with the natural world in the spectacular yet comfortable surroundings of Trigonos, North Wales. This retreat will take participants on both inner and outer journeys that explore – through the practice of mindfulness and meditation – the inner quiet that allows us to perceive and appreciate the natural world more fully. We will further explore – through mindfulness practice, discussion and through walks in the spectacular Dyffryn Nantlle – the concept of ReWilding the environment and the self as an approach to conserving and healing the natural world, as well as cultivating a more direct experience with nature.
