Fintry Retreat 2021

This year’s retreat will be run from October 22-24.

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 £170 per person, to include lunch and an evening meal. A supplement of £10 is payable for those wishing to have lunch on Friday.

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 below or by emailing or telephoning the office:
