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.
Corona Virus October Update:
The Chisholme Estate is open to locally living visitors to walk the paths and woodland areas and visit the monument and graves. Please observe social distancing at all times.

What is it to be human? And, inseparable from this, what is real?
The Penny Fund was started in 1985 by Bulent Rauf, to support students at Chisholme.
