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 in May each year. Landscape expeditions 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.
Storytelling and running workshops takes her far and wide, from Wales, to Festivals in Portugal and as far afield as India this year. She combines her deep knowledge of the ancient mythology and spiritual traditions of Wales with insights drawn from wisdom and healing tales from indigenous cultures across the world.
In September '17, Angharad will return to Ty Newydd, Wales' writer's centre to co-lead a literary retreat with author, Jay Griffiths. 'Literature from the Land' is an exploration of how landscape inspires creativity and writing, and how writing can be enriched by landscape.
All this and being mum to Myfi and chief human to Cadi the border collie and two cats, a school governor and director of Literature Wales and Beyond the Border International Storytelling Festival.
When she has spare time (it's rare!), it's dedicated to writing her historic novel, completing a PhD in Creative Writing and long wild walks in wilderness.
