At The Trivium, we seek to begin a journey into the intersections between craftsmanship, making and our spiritual lives. For many of us, modern life leaves us feeling disconnected and uprooted, lacking in meaning and direction. We believe that the answers to these issues lie not just in developing a more intimate connection with the Divine, but also with reconnecting and re-orientating our paths completely, such that what we do, the way we feel and what we believe are in union.
Making things by hand has become a novelty, and we believe that this is a good place for us to begin a process of reconnection, putting us in direct contact with the world around us. The art of craftsmanship is not just about the objects made, however, but about a whole perspective and approach to life where we can learn to be patient, to listen and to wonder.
Craftsmanship is a path open to all of us. We don’t have to be professional or experienced artists, and we don’t need to consider ourselves ‘creatives’. There is much more to craftsmanship than this, and for any of us, in all walks of life and every profession, there are important things we can learn from craftsmanship, and the way of life that it demands.
This retreat is about all these things, and more that we can’t put into words. Above all, we wish to let the city speak her own truths. Join us, if you’re ready to learn and seek. You don’t have to be at a place where you feel ‘ready’, but just ‘open’ to consider new ways of thinking. All are welcome.
