The most beautiful learning and the greatest is to know yourself
Clement of Alexandria (c.150–c.215)
Chisholme is here for those who seek to know themselves essentially and to understand the reality of the world in which we live.
The guiding principle here is the essential Unity of all Existence, a wholly inclusive perspective, not limited by dogma or religious considerations. This perspective, which lies at the heart of the great wisdom traditions, is of particular relevance today.
Located on a beautiful 187-acre estate in the rolling hills of the Scottish Borders, Chisholme offers both the context and the support for such self-discovery. The main house looks out over glorious landscaped grounds, and woods of native trees encircle the estate.
The ongoing programme includes text-based study retreats, immersive courses living close to nature, and the longer intensive Discovering Unity retreats during the winter months.
Volunteers from around the world make a huge contribution to the life of the place, and visitors are welcome throughout the year to get a taste of what Chisholme can offer.
