Fintry Spring Retreat 2024

Our 2024 Spring retreat will be run from March 1-3

All Study Society members and non-members are warmly invited to attend, although places are strictly limited to 15 due to the capacity of the venue. There will be three meditation periods a day and a varied programme of study and reflection in the restful atmosphere of Fintry and its extensive grounds.

Accommodation consists of 7 single and 4 twin rooms, and bookings will be taken on a first come first served basis.

The cost for a two-night stay is £275 per person, to include lunch and an evening meal. Please contact the office to make payment via bank transfer or cheque.

As with previous retreats, anyone who feels they are unable to attend for financial reasons, please
register a request for financial help with the Study Society office, and someone will contact you.

Please contact Thomas Phillips if you have any questions. Places can be booked by emailing or telephoning the office:
