Courses at Chisholme

Chisholme is here to help you explore your questions about life, about meaning and existence.

All the courses are dedicated to exploring the essential unity of all existence, the true nature of the self, and how our understanding of this informs how we are in the world. The Chisholme estate offers a beautiful backdrop and context for this kind of enquiry.

Discovering Unity weekends

Reconnect and realign: enquire into what unity means from and for your own self. These weekends offer study, group conversation, meditation and mindful work.
The programme for 2019 is now in preparation and dates for weekend courses in the coming year will be posted very soon.

Week-long courses

Self knowledge is a process of uncovering, realising, and awakening to what is innate in all of us. This is a journey of enquiry for anyone who questions their reality, their place and purpose in this life. As each person is unique, so each course comprises different ingredients, and no two courses are ever the same.
The programme for 2019 is now in preparation and course dates for the coming year will be posted very soon.

Discovering Unity: 40 Day Intensive Retreat
Who are you really? How can you really know what it means to be human? This fully immersive forty-day retreat allows you the chance to uncover answers to the universal questions that existence poses. It will be an exploration of your self, of your very being, and of the nature of your relationships with others and the world.
Each day includes time for study, work, meditation and devotional practice.
Dates for courses in 2019 will be announced shortly.

It is hoped that a follow-on course of 99 days will be offered in the winter of 2019/20. It will be open to anyone who has participated in the 40-Day Retreat or completed a previous Six-month Course/Two-year On-line Course or similar preparation.

Discovering Unity in Awareness: Homestudy course, with online support
Home-based learning over one year, including two residential retreats and on-line support, tutorials, one to one Skype interviews and much more.
It is likely that this course will be on offer in 2019, starting with a residential retreat in August at Chisholme. If you are interested, then please write to secretary@chisholme.org

I'm struggling to find the words to describe how amazing and life changing the Woodland Retreat has been for me. Quite possibly the most seminal week of my life with lots of fun, laughter, friendship, beauty and good food thrown in. Go. Seriously, you owe it to yourself to go do it...
