The most beautiful learning and the greatest is to know yourself
Clement of Alexandria (c.150–c.215)
The guiding principle at Chisholme is the essential Unity of all Existence. This wholly inclusive perspective is the basis of all great wisdom traditions and lies at the heart of everything that happens in the school.
The education at Chisholme is of particular relevance today, for those who are motivated by a strong desire to know themselves according to this one essential reality, and to be in service to this reality in themselves and in the world.
Chisholme is located on a beautiful 187-acre estate in the rolling hills of the Scottish Borders. It offers both the context and the support for retreat and self-discovery.
Visitors are welcome, but please email in advance of coming so you can be informed of current requirements. The paths and woodland areas of the Estate, and the monument and graves are open to visitors and walkers. Please observe social distancing.
Please consider supporting the Chisholme Institute
