The Beyond Retreat


7-12 September 2019,  Pembrokeshire Coast National Park

Paul King & Marie Faire

We invite you to join us for our annual retreat in a farmhouse looking over a quiet beach within the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

We are fondly calling this, ‘a bohemian retreat’ and we intend for it to provide a wonderful nourishing oasis.

We will draw upon aspects of Joseph Campbell’s work with the hero’s journey and engage in reflective practice, creative free-flowing Tai Chi, art and conversation to make connections to our own life’s journey and our daily living. No experience is needed for the tai chi, art, or anything, just a willingness to play, be curious and explore!

The theme for this year is, Who Are You Becoming?

Other Details

We will spend time inside and outside, including the beach across from the farmhouse and at other special locations.  Our schedule will adapt to the weather (everything has to in this part of the world!).

There will be some free time to enjoy the area and/or to do ‘you own thing’. Options include just being still, walking, boat trips, visiting ancient sites, going to St David’s and its wonderful Cathedral. One treat is seeing the seal pups, which are born at this time of year.

Finally if a partner or friend wants to come with you but does not wish to participate in the retreat we hope to make that possible. Dogs and children are welcome too.

Comments from previous retreats

“Blessed with beautiful weather, a wonderful setting, amazing beaches and unendingly generous hospitality, Paul and Marie created a haven for us in West Wales to explore our own hero’s journey. The offerings ranged from exploring archetypes to working with key questions using paper, wax and charcoal and from Tai Chi to tarot cards. All were beautifully and gently facilitated. Add in new friendships, several beach walks, visits to St David’s Cathedral and St Non’s Chapel and time for personal reflection and you have a perfect few days away from the pressures of daily living to set you up for the months ahead. It was special time in a special place with special people and was not to be missed.”
