GreenSpirit Wild Week in Wales – August 2014

A group of GreenSpiriters met at Cae Mabon in Snowdonia, North Wales for a week of connecting, and living in conscious connection with the natural world.

Here is the Celtic roundhouse where we had evenings of chanting, storytelling, drumming, music and more….

A week of living close to each other and capturing the meaning of GreenSpirit: living in a loving consciousness of the interconnected world. We enjoy being in and celebrating our natural surroundings together, go walking, sing and tell stories around the fire in the round house and relax in the hot tub under the oak trees and stars. This holiday is like a retreat from our busy lives and is always nurturing. People who attend are invited to bring something they can share, like a workshop, stories, songs, favourite recipes, musical instruments… – See more at: http://www.greenspirit.org.uk/html/events.shtml#sthash.oKz5zyG0.dpuf
