Event description

Description

Explore your deeper questions with others during a weekend of group study, discussion and conversation – a weekend devoted to Discovering Unity.

The perspective of unity can pave the way to a fuller appreciation of our potential as a human being.

The understanding that all is essentially one is to be found in many traditions. We may discover this in a text from The Tao with its wisdoms from the China of 2500 years ago, in the sermons of Meister Eckhart or in studying the poetry of his contemporary, the Persian Rumi. From about the same time, the writings of Ibn Arabi, known as ‘the greatest teacher’ within Sufism, offer exceptional insights that might be investigated.

But how can we come to realise this potential once it is recognised? This key question will also need to be addressed.

Study of wisdom texts is balanced with short periods of work and meditation: these are an integral part of the education offered here.

The work periods will involve you in the kitchen, the organic gardens and the wider estate. You will also have many opportunities to enjoy the fine food Chisholme is well known for.

The weekend will provide answers but will probably also raise new questions in you. The hope is that it will embark you on your own voyage of self-discovery.
