Course Information

These retreats are open to any individual who is looking for some quiet-but-purposeful time in beautiful surroundings with a light-touch, semi-structured programme. In 2022, we are offering Space to Be four times so you can choose which season you would like to enjoy Trigonos’s magical environment.

In a small group (up to 7 people) the retreat will have exclusive use of the main meeting room with its wonderful view of Snowdon to use as a base. Each day will start with a meeting of the group to agree a plan and aim for they would like to do together. The day will end with another gathering to share reflections. Facilitation will be light touch – but some options for activities will be offered for the group to choose, if they so wish.

Available resources include: art materials, fiction and non-fiction books, music, beautiful nature walks, yoga mats, blocks and cushions.

GOING WITH THE FLOW whatever the season, the weather or any prevailing personal or external events – enjoying sounds and silence; speaking and listening; moments of being and moments of doing

REFLECTING on your individual journey, thinking about the signposts in your life and where the next steps may lie

ENJOYING THE WARMTH and hospitality of the Trigonos team and the lovingly prepared vegetarian food with some produce home grown and essential diets catered for

EXPLORING THE WISDOM OF OTHERS by dipping into the library with books on different faith traditions, mythology, social action psychology, personal journeys, environment and much more

GETTING PERSPECTIVE by looking at our place in the landscape – perhaps by exploring the nearby slate quarries or going to the sea or climbing a mountain or just strolling in the beautiful walled garden

“The facilitation was light yet attentive…I really enjoyed feeling I could be on my own knowing that  I would be meeting up with the group later”
