You are invited to a weekend retreat that provides an opportunity to re-connect and be re-energised in the beautiful setting of the Welsh mountains and woodlands. Thurstan Crockett and Damian Tow have designed an immersive weekend in July which offers a combination of outdoor activities and inner exploration.

It is based on the success and learning from superb In Through the Outdoors weekends in 2018, 2019 & 2020.

If you're interested in this Summer version have a read of the overview below and either reserve one of the limited number of places right away, or get in touch to find out more.

Overview of the weekend

This weekend event is designed to re-energise through a powerful package of outdoor activities and inner exploration, providing a platform to develop new awareness and connections. Too often, once we get into our working lives we can get isolated and lose sight of our vision and passion; we can feel demotivated and can lack the clarity or drive to connect with our peers to create innovative solutions and great new projects. So, we’re offering an immersive weekend away in North Wales in Summer 2021. There will be opportunities for reflection, nature connection and learning, and you’ll get new insights into what you’d love to work on and a path to create new joint initiatives. If you’re intrigued, just contact either of us (details below) for more information or book a place directly.
