The impetus to start Journey On was a week’s course Libby undertook in 2016. This is a report of our and other similarly started projects. It’s our hope that our next weekend will be in 2021 with New Year and Andreas’ stag to tide us over next year. Read more in the report which is available here
This year’s retreat is looking to be our best yet! We will be going to Llandeilo in October – a small town on the west side of the Brecon Beacons. We’re staying in a rather special farmhouse owned by the National Trust, with sloping ceilings, log burners and sofas so comfy that you can sleep on them!Llandeilo itself is pretty special – with two castles on its doorstep (Carreg Cennen and Dinefwr), a mansion (that was built in the 1600s and has direct links to the Rebecca Riots, a murder mystery in the 20th Century and rumours of spooky goings-on),
