“Wisdom Beyond Words: Exploring Grief through Sacred Movement, Sound and Silence”

Saturday September 22nd – Tuesday September 25th 2018

This retreat will be co-held by Samina Ali and Alexandra Wilson over 3 days and nights at the Autumn Equinox; a liminal time of letting go and going within. Weaving their offerings together Samina and Alexandra are dreaming into a deeply sacred held space where long held sorrows. grief and stagnant emotion can flow. What better time of year and what better place to really allow yourself the courage and the space to grieve deeply and receive the love and nourishment of the Earth, amazing food and the company of kindred spirits?


A space to come and rest; to gather with kindred spirits drawn towards working in the field of grief. Let us lament and keen, let us share our stories, let us nestle into deep and sacred silence together, let us heal in the presence of that great leveller…. let us also dance, let us laugh, let us embrace the wholeness of this human experience.

The stunning Nantlle Valley in Snowdonia is a land swathed in mists and myths, the rock beneath us layered with loss and life itself. You will be welcomed to the sumptuous Trigonos Retreat Centre for 3 nights; arriving on the late afternoon of Saturday and departing after breakfast on the Tuesday.

More about Samina and Alexandra to follow. Samina is a movement therapist and Alexandra a ceremonialist and griefkeeper. We both believe in the power of working in groups. The retreat will weave sacred movement, sound and silence together in ceremonial space; for a profound release and healing.
