sgyrsiau a theithiau cerdded

Ymgollwch yn mysg y meddylwyr a'r breuddwydwyr. Gyda chefnogaeth Llenyddiaeth Cymru a Chyhoeddwyr Llyfrau Seren, rydym yn cyflwyno cymysgedd gwych o awduron, siaradwyr a beirdd yn y Seren Barn. 

Mae llawer o’u gweithiau wedi’u dylanwadu gan natur a thirwedd unigryw, ysbrydoledig yr ardal arfordirol hardd hon. Gwrandewch ar sgyrsiau gan naturiaethwyr ac academyddion gwybodus, trafodwch faterion cyfoes ym meysydd cadwraeth, cynaliadwyedd a meddygaeth neu cymerwch amser i wylio ffilm ddogfen natur. 

“I’ve sat at the back of the Barn and been blessed with amazing talks pretty much every day of every festival so far 👏🏻”

“All talks I attended were very informative and I haven’t been to a festival before that offers talks I’d like to go to as much as the bands! I Loved them”

Teithiau Cerdded – Gwisgwch eich esgidiau cerdded ac ymgolli ym myd natur, mewn ffyrdd nad ydych efallai wedi gwneud o’r blaen! Ymunwch â’n hymarferwyr ar gyfres o deithiau cerdded tywys sy’n eich addysgu sut i chwilota, dysgu am deyrnas y ffyngau a chymryd rhan mewn ymwybyddiaeth ofalgar synhwyraidd trwy ein coedwig heulwen a chynefin arfordirol unigryw. 

O werthfawrogi'r digonedd o fwydydd naturiol maethlon yn y gwyllt i ailgysylltu'ch meddwl a'ch corff trwy'r synhwyrau, bydd y profiadau hyn yn ailgyflenwi'ch blasbwyntiau, yn adfywio'ch ffyrdd o feddwl ac yn adfer eich enaid!
