ReWilding the Mind

A 3 day retreat in the mountains of Eryri, Snowdonia – North Wales

24 – 27th May, 2018, Trigonos, Nantlle, North Wales.

Mindfulness and Rewilding and are both topics that are receiving much attention and interest in these ever-more complicated and confusing modern times. This three-day 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 is timed to take place when spring is in full flow in the wildwoods and mountains of Snowdonia, and it 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.

Contemporary interest in conservation in Britain, in Europe and beyond is being rejuvenated through the concept of “rewilding”. What can this mean, both for the countryside and to the people living within it? 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.

This 3 day retreat will be take the form of guided mindfulness meditations, discussions and walks in the countryside and will be co-led by Claire Thompson and Jonathan Stacey. Claire is the author of two books: Mindfulness and the Natural World and the more recent The Art of Mindful Birdwatching, and has been running Mindfulness in Nature retreats for a number of years in Britain and the Austrian Alps. Claire is also active in the field of international nature conservation. Jonathan has lived and worked as an ecologist in Britain, Africa, Asia and the Americas and has been practicing mindfulness in Nature for much of his life, deeply influenced by wilderness in the deserts, mountains and forests around the world. He has made his home in North Wales and brings both a global and local perspective to the retreat.
