    Programmed Retreats

    These are the retreats that we organise with a speaker or leader. For more information about what we have planned take a look at the ‘Residential retreats’ page in the 'What's On' section.


    Individually Guided Retreats (IGR)

    An Individually Guided Retreat is the opportunity to step aside from the usual routines of life. It offers space and time to refresh and refocus with the assistance of one of our trained and experienced spiritual accompanists.


    Make a personal retreat

    A third option is to come and make your own retreat while you enjoy the peace and hospitality of Thie dy Vea. Relax, read, walk through stunning landscapes, discover the Island's Celtic Christian heritage. Contact us to discuss more options.

  • 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.'

    Henri Nouwen 'Reaching Out'

    Coming on an Individually Guided Retreat (IGR)

    Individually Guided Retreats are for a minimum of two days (three nights) and are fully catered. They can be taken at weekends or midweek.

    The IGR begins after dinner on the day you arrive with an orientation session with your accompanist. You will then spend approximately an hour with your accompanist on each full day of the IGR. The retreat ends after breakfast on your final day. Silence isn’t compulsory, but we find that it is beneficial! You can expect a warm welcome into a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere.

    The cost of a two-day IGR would range from £255 - £306 depending on your choice of accommodation. Longer IGRs can be arranged.

    Please contact us to discuss how we can best help you.

  • A little more about spiritual accompaniment

    In addition to offering Spiritual Accompaniment as part of a retreat, the team at Thie dy Vea is able to offer regular ongoing Spiritual Direction on an individual basis. This can be done both face to face or online by one of our trained and experienced Spiritual Directors. Our completely confidential conversations will be about your life experiences and will seek to help you discern God's presence in the circumstances of your life. Your guide will offer suggestions for prayer using a variety of material.

    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

    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.
