The Trodden Path
The Greensville Trust hereby presents eager students with another blessed opportunity to study at the feet of some of the prophetic heirs and their students for a period of ten days during the prophetic month of Sha'bān. Students will be afforded opportune moments to acquire knowledge of the sacred, purify their hearts and affix their feet upon the soil of the religion of God, exalted be He.

The Welsh Language and Heritage Centre, Nant Gwrtheyrn, is located in an old granite-quarrying village on the Llyn Peninsula. the whole village was bought in the late 1970s with the intention of transforming it into a Language Centre.
Full Board ResidentialDate
14th Sha'bān - 24th Sha'bān, 1429
Friday, 15th August - Monday, 25th August, 2008
Accommodation is situated in the former quarrymen cottages, which includes a lounge, bedrooms, bathroom and kitchen. All students will be sharing a cottage with at least 5 other course participants, with some of the students expected to sleep on the floor due to a lack of adequate bed space.Families
Only one cottage will be allocated towards the housing of families who desire to live together during the course. Priority will be given to larger families who are unable to live in the ‘singles’ accommodation essentially due to the size of their family. Each of the four families will be expected to occupy one of the four double bedded rooms in the house and share the twin bathroom facilities, kitchen and communal lounge area.Children
Children are welcomed onto the Trodden Path with their presence being a causative reason for the descent of divine mercy. However, we will be maintaining our strict policy of not allowing children into the designated teaching area whilst classes are in progress. Financial contributions for each child brought are welcomed with guidelines being set at:
Under sevens £50
Under fifteens £100
We hope to be able to arrange an informal creche for the duration of the course. The creche will be open up until 5:30 p.m with families thereafter having to supervise their own children. A minimum of five children between the ages of three and ten are needed in order to make the facility viable with families being expected to contribute £50 per child towards the associated costs of running the facility.
Classes and Prayer
Formal classes and prayer will be held in the main marquee situated in the square directly in front of the cottages. Some of the smaller classes and group sessions will be held at the Heritage Centre and the Plas.Meals
All meals with the exception of breakfast will be served at Caffi Meinir Restaurant on site, with students expected to organise their own breakfast in their cottages of residence, with all foodstuffs being provided by the kitchen staff.
It should be noted that the Heritage Centre, Caffi Meinir Restaurant and the lower level of the Plas are all accessible by wheelchair.Registration
All applicants who desire to register for the course are strongly advised to do so prior to Thursday, 31st July, 2008. A place on the retreat can be reserved once the course application form is completed and returned alongside the required £100 deposit.
In the case of a student dropping out of the course prior to it commencing then deposits will be returned on the proviso that another applicant is found to replace the place vacated.
Any student who desires to register will only need to inform us of their desire and thereafter organise the first of two payments that being the £100 deposit needed to confirm one’s place on the course. The second payment for the the remaining £200 will need to paid by Thursday, 31st July, 2008 at the latest.
