Outside of her day to day 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), and a series of year long Contemporary Animism Apprenticeships at a number of centres including Embercombe in Devon. She also leads 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, Angharad 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, speaking at events 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, click here for more about her storytelling life.
Angharad continues to delight in drawing together the fragments of our tradition that can help guide and sustain a living spiritual practice, connected to this land and her creatures. Her retreats and creative works are are conceived as radical acts of re-membering our soulful, deep humanity and re-weaving ourselves back into fully engaged participation within the web of life.
