Outside of her work sphere, Angharad organises and facilitates a number of creative expeditions, retreats and courses each year. These include a nurturing retreat series for women, 'Return to Centre' (www.returntocentre.org.uk), held at Cae Mabon in the foothills of Snowdonia. Landscape expeditions and pilgrimages that explore the history, archaeology, myths and 'dreaming' of the land include 'In the Footsteps of Ancestors', a contemporary creative expedition over 3-4 days in June each year, and a retreat series entitled 'Dreaming the Land' (www.dreamingtheland.com). In addition, she runs a number of one or half-day story-walks in locations around Wales a few times a year. Out of this work and an increasing interest in native spirituality has come Dadeni, a three year programme of enquiry and exploration into the ancient Brythonic or Briton-ic spirituality of this land which Angharad leads alongside other great facilitators and teachers of this tradition.
Storytelling and running workshops takes her far and wide, from Wales, to Festivals in Portugal and as far afield as India. She combines her deep knowledge of the ancient mythology and spiritual traditions of Britain with insights drawn from wisdom and healing tales from indigenous cultures across the world.
In September '20, Angharad will return to Ty Newydd, Wales' writer's centre to co-lead a literary retreat with author and travel writer, Mike Parker. 'Writing Wales' is an exploration of how landscape, history, story and culture inspires creativity and writing, and how writing can be enriched by deepening a relationship with land and place (see https://www.tynewydd.wales/course/writing-wales/). In February 2021, Angharad returns to Embercombe in Devon to co-facilitate with Colin Campbell an exciting two part, year long exploration of Contemporary Animism and its place within a spiritual tradition for the 21st Century
All this and being mum to Myfi and chief human to Cadi the border collie, a school governor and director of Beyond the Border International Storytelling Festival.
When she has spare time (it's rare!), it's dedicated to writing, dreaming in nature and long wild walks in wilderness.
