  • What does it mean to go on retreat?

    It's a time to step aside from our usual busy patterns of daily life. It offers space and time to rest, find refreshment and refocus. It can be for a day, a weekend, or longer.

    I'm not sure about silence!

    We need time to ponder, and this is best done when we're not surrounded by noise. Our spirits need quiet. Silence isn't compulsory - but at times it can help.  Expect a warm welcome into a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere!

    Do you offer spiritual accompaniment?

    Yes, we can offer Spiritual Accompaniment from one of our trained and experienced Spiritual Directors. Our conversation about your life experiences will be highly individual to you. It will, of course, remain completely confidential. Your companion may suggest ways of praying, a scripture passage, poem, or other material for you to ponder whilst you are on retreat.

    The value of a companion on the journey ...

    'Our God is greater than our own heart and mind, too easily we are tempted to make our heart's desires and our mind's speculations into the will of God. Therefore, it is helpful to have someone to accompany us ... who helps us to distinguish between the voice of God and all other voices.'

  • Helpful little videos

    Here are a few helpful little videos that explain a little more about who we are, what we're doing, why we're doing it, and how you can get involved too.

    Thie Dy Vea - A quick introduction.

    Just under 4 minutes to give you a taste of what we believe God is asking of us, here at TDV.

    Why an Isle of Man retreat?

    This 6 minute video sees two of our community leaders answering this question.

  • Explore

    Encounter

    Grow

    Thie Dy Vea is surrounded by pilgrim walks,
    and places of rich historic and deep spiritual importance can be found
    not just in Peel, but all around the Isle of Man.

    And there's more ......

    The Thie Dy Vea Community have the training and experience
    to help you to be refreshed, renewed and restored - to the fullness of life!

     

    Creativity

    Discover your spiritual self whilst creating something - there'll be chances to try activities that are new to you - from cheese-making to card-making and from pottery to photography

    Hospitality

    Thie Dy Vea welcomes people of all faiths and none - and the hospitality we offer you is tailored to your specific needs, whether you come alone, or with a group

    Wholeness

    When we're a complete and harmonious whole, we return to the state of being physically and mentally unbroken and undamaged - help to wholeness is at the heart of Thie Dy Vea

    History

    Thie Dy Vea is ideally placed within walking distance of some beautiful and significant spiritual sites - but the whole Island is filled with routes back into our Celtic heritage
     

    Solitude

    Solitude is the state of being alone, without being lonely. It's a positive and constructive state of engagement with oneself - and Thie Dy Vea will offer spaces to seek that solitude

    Worship

    All life in Thie Dy Vea is sustained by a daily cycle of prayer led by members of the Community - our visitors are welcome to join in as much - or as little - as they wish.

    for your house group, or your church friends.

    Quiet Times

    If you're a busy Mum, a key worker or a single Dad,
    the idea of a Quiet Time might never cross your mind!
     

    So, how about a morning, afternoon (or perhaps an evening)
    just for YOU .....
    It could involve food, crafts, music, walking, storytelling....
    or just doing absolutely nothing!
