Weekend Retreat in Nature to Reconnect to Your Authentic Self.
“God’s gift to you is more talent and ability than you will ever use in one lifetime. Your gift to God is to develop and utilise as much of that talent and ability as you can, in this lifetime.” Steve Bow
All humans have an innate deep desire to grow. Just like all creatures do! From a frog to a palm tree. The biological impulse to reach full expression! Whatever that looks like for that particular creature.
When our life force is stagnant, we feel the discomfort. When we’re coasting through life – just going through the motions – we know deep down this is not how it’s meant to be. Our soul aches and yearns for more.
How much of your talent and ability are you currently using?
UNLEASH MORE OF YOUR POTENTIAL at this special weekend retreat!

Here’s what participants of our February 2022 retreat had to say!
“This is an incredible retreat with a real variety of activities and learnings to be had. Everyone needs to get off the treadmill of life sometimes and there is no better way to reconnect than on one of Briony and Craig’s retreats.”
“I cannot recommend this retreat enough. After going on it twice now, I have really noticed the difference in myself, which has given me so much confidence (a thing I have been longing for since I can remember). I have processed some huge things that were holding me back in life and because of this retreat, I fully believe we are capable of anything and we can all overcome our conditioning to lead the lives we really want.
It can’t be overstated how profoundly healing it is to be around other people sharing our experiences, realising that you are totally not alone in how you feel, and supporting each other to process our mental challenges together... There’s so much laughter, love and much-needed emotional release. Not to mention the surroundings of the jaw-dropping landscapes and the absolutely delicious, nourishing, thoroughly well-researched food at every meal. I can’t wait to go back.”

On this retreat we will be celebrating the vibrant healing power of leaves and flowers. Our foraging walks will include looking for red clover, nettle, dandelion, plantain and yarrow in the wild as well as how to use these plants in foods and medicine. We will create skin healing balms and blood-nourishing tinctures, connecting to nature as we work.

We have exclusive access to Ty Mam Mawr, an off-grid retreat centre supplied by natural mountain spring water. Our eco-friendly home for the weekend is accessible by car and bus (from nearby Wrexham). We will be close to beautiful woodlands and surrounded by ancient sacred sites, such as Nant Croes Y Wernen stone circle with quartzite stones dating from c.2300 BC. Guests will have full access to all parts of the retreat centre, sleeping in one of the two hand-made yurts and sharing two bathrooms.
What will we be eating?
We offer fully catered, healthy and tasty vegetarian food for the duration of the weekend.
