Gwydion's Crossing:
Between Worlds Retreat

March 19th - 26th, 2021
Cornwall, UK

When

March 19th - 26th, 2021

Where

Cornwall - Caradoc at Tregardock

Wander with us wild and free, and discover the mystic magick of the Cornish Coast. During this 8 day retreat over Spring Equinox, we will travel between this world and the eternal world unseen. 

Listen deep to the song of the ancient trees, the beat of the ocean banging the cliffsides, the wind howling down the forgotten paths, calling out the spirit we silence beneath. 

Gwydion leads us beyond the threshold to worlds above, below and between. Experience the breadth and depth of the mind, body and spirit as we follow the ancient wisdom of the land. We share meals, dreams and visions as our feet trace the marks of this sacred ground. These lands inspired the visions of Arthur, Morgana Le Fay, the Lady of the Lake, Mordred, and Merlin, where once magick and the material lived side-by-side. 

We rise with the sun for our daily movement and meditation practice to keep you grounded, embodied, and present. We spend our days together with visits to sacred sites around Cornwall, connecting with the land and the magick beings who reside there.

Through shamanic journeying and storytelling, we become part of the legends. Experience the conception and birth of Arthur, the giving and receiving of famed Excalibur, the quest for the Holy Grail, and the tragic final battle of Camlan, both in this world and the Otherworld.

Learn to open your eyes and see.

Through the mists, come to a place where time stands still, and the legends live and breathe.

Our Venue

Our home is the idyllic and isolated Caradoc, set on 250 acres of farm land with stunning views of the Atlantic ocean. With complete access to the grounds and our own studio space, you have plenty of time to relax and connect to the gorgeous surroundings. We have our own private beach, only a 10 minute walk away.

Caradoc is divided into two attached buildings - The Main House and Julian’s House. 

The Main House has three shared bedrooms and the private master bedroom. Each of the shared bedrooms has two single beds and its own en-suite bathroom. The master bedroom features a luxurious super king bed, a private bathroom, and stunning views over the property. If you are looking to have your own private space during the retreat, we recommend that you book the master bedroom - it’s also perfect for couples or for two friends to share.
The common space includes a beautiful reading area, a spacious kitchen, a sitting room, and a large grass courtyard for you to use as you please. We eat all of our meals together in the Main House.

Julian’s House has one shared bedroom (with two single beds) which shares a bathroom with your teachers. It also has a small kitchen and sitting room at your disposal.
