Dedicated to the art of self discovery


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.

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.
