Chisholme is a place that attracts creative, introspective, artistic, thoughtful, open-minded, curious and adventurous souls from across the world ...
Lindsey, volunteer and Film Major from Whitman College, Western Australia
Chisholme is here for those who seek to know themselves essentially and come to understand the reality of the world in which they live.
Spring and Summer
Chisholme is open, but due to changing Covid regulations, we ask you to contact the secretary by email before visiting, even if you just wish to drop in for morning coffee or afternoon tea.
During the summer months there is often an ongoing programme of group study, meditation and conversational enquiry, to get a taste of what the education here can offer. The place and its surrounding wild woods and moorland are glorious, so this is also a wonderful time to simply be here in contemplation, in the spirit of a self-guided retreat.
The paths and woodland areas of the Estate, and the monument and graves are open at all times to visitors and walkers.
Autumn and Winter
This is the time for the longer, intensive Discovering Unity retreats. These have their own order and conditions and so the programme of the School adjusts accordingly. Visitors who come during the winter months are asked to respect the requirements of these courses.

It was for me a very happy return after three years and I hope to be back much sooner. There is a light, welcoming attentive air to the place which is good to be in.
Thank you for enfolding me within the beautiful, harmonious beehive of Chisholme…and I am already drawn to return.
