We warmly invite you to deep dive into the wisdom of nature in our magical Snowdonia retreat. Held within the powerful days of Autumn Equinox, it is a time in the seasonal cycle where we are called to reflect on the balance of life and celebrate the fruits of our physical and spiritual harvest.  

The retreat will take place in Cae Mabon Eco-Retreat in North Wales, set within lush surroundings of ancient oak forest, water falls, crystal clear river, lakes, majestic mountains, hobbit houses and labyrinths. Cae Mabon is steeped in elemental vitality and has been described as ‘jaw-droppingly beautiful'.

The retreat will include :

  • Daily kundalini yoga and meditation
  • Sound journeying
  • Cacao / Mugwort ceremony
  • Intuitive voice activation
  • Breathwork
  • Equinox Fire Ceremony
  • A group trip to a sacred site in Snowdonia
  • Deep Nature immersion and ceremony with the elements
  • Guided reflection and journalling
  • Intuitive movement medicine with live music
  • Creative visual expression/mark-making
  • Free time to rest, swim, sauna or explore the lands
  • Three delicious organic vegan meals each day prepared with love and according to TCM principles by a naturopath.


May we celebrate together this immense gift of life and our unique purpose we're born here to realise.
May we make sacred space to be in simplicity and listen to the wisdom of Nature. 
May we recognise ourselves united with one-another - human, plant, animal and mineral - all of the same Great Mother.
May we find harmony within and create harmony without, in alignment with our greatest potential.
May we participate more fully in this journey of life, and know our power to affect the collective creation.
May we be free to express the inspirations that flow through us, moved by our innate vitality.
May we reconcile with our shadows with heart-felt courage and bear witness to vulnerability with compassion.
May we support each other on this journey of awakening, gathered around the same timeless fire.
And may we walk fearlessly on our paths, with grace in each step, knowing ourselves and all as sacred.


Guided with love by Lani Rocillo and Annabelle Stapleton-Crittenden



Lani Rocillo is a sound medicine, plant medicine and  kundalini yoga practitioner, a musician and co-creator of Our Light, a fully off-grid visionary festival. The intention of her offering is to open spaces of deep and heartfelt experiences through tools and practices that profoundly activate our capacity to self-heal and positively transform.

She creates harmonising sound immersion, facilitates plant spirit explorations and assist in cultivating the physical and energy body through kundalini yoga. She initiates safe spaces where one is guided to be present and surrender to breath & the living moment; a state of being where we can touch the mystery of our own inner universe and awaken to our essence as Love. Through presence, we can realise that we are a part of the natural world and by living in harmony with nature we can become balanced, healthy, compassionate, purposeful and vastly creative. /



My name is Annabelle Stapleton-Crittenden, blessed with the spiritual name Charanbani Kaur.

My path is devoted to the healing and creative arts, offering practices for people to connect with spirit and feel more empowered and alive, stronger and more sensitive, and in flow with their innate creativity and sensuality. These tools and techniques guide us to take responsibility for what we nurture into life through our intention and attention, and to recognise our whole life as an altar.

I share kundalini yoga and meditation alongside sound medicine with instruments including gong, crystal bowls, drum and voice. I guide participatory intuitive storytelling as a waking dream temple, and offer other creative practices, nature meditations and self-enquiry exercises for growth, clarity and integration.

It brings me joy to help create the conditions that allow you to feel more authentically you, to experience your infinite nature whilst connecting to your unique purpose and history, and to live in a way that feels meaningful, elevated and vibrant.

Alongside yoga and sound, my studies and training include the neurophysiology of complex PTSD and trauma sensitive yoga with the school of Bessel van der Kolk (author of 'The Body Keeps the Score'), channelled energy healing and a BA in Performing Arts from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. I have a background as a practitioner and teacher in performance and theatre in the UK and Europe, and as an artist I've shared my work at the Tate Britain, the British Museum, the Serpentine Gallery, Somerset House, Edinburgh Festival, Latitude Festival and much more.

For the past few years I've been living on a mountain in Mexico where I've been deepening in knowledge with native medicine practices and wild nature.





Accommodation is in shared rooms. There are various sizes of habitat, and the room share will be allocated closer to the date to best accommodate the group. (See the Cae Mabon website if you would like a better idea of the beautiful eco-houses!) 

If you are planning to come with a partner or group of friends then please send a request if you would like to be together.

And if you prefer to bring a tent and camp on the land to be closer to the elements then this is also an option.
