There’s options to join as a full participant in the following ways:

  • Scholarship: a limited number of free or varying discount places for both in person or online available to those who otherwise would not be able to attend (e.g. < £14,000 annual income) and are demonstrably committed to Self Realisation. Apply directly to Philip via the site Contact Page or respond to the email you received with a Paragraph sharing your calling and commitment. Philip’s decision on these is final and is not for debate or appeal.
  • Online via Zoom at a much reduced rate of £80. Having trialled this successfully in 2022 we know it works both those online and here in person felt very much as part of one unified group.
  • For both in person and online bookings staged payments are possible. Note you will be committed to attending the whole retreat. No partial attendance options are available.
  • A final option is to benefit from a Pre-Recorded Online Retreat in your own time see the second button below.

Simple Vegetarian Lunches: Are provided soup and bread possibly some cake! Any special needs will need to be catered for by you.

Note: No alcohol to be consumed at any time during the retreat, no take-aways, smoking or food in Meditation Room.

Local B&B’s and Hotel’s are available in Boroughbridge, Ripon and surrounding area. We don’t have any specific arrangements or deals.

Retreat Address: Oak Tree House, Skelton On Ure, Ripon, North Yorkshire, HG4 5AG. See the Google Map below.

Note: The Post Code is only accurate for the centre of the village. At the top of the Red Balloon Pin Marker on the scale below is the private driveway also denoted by the Bus Stop at Skelton Grange at larger scale!

Public Transport: The options are very limited in our small North Yorkshire Village. Nearest Train Station is Harrogate (about 35 mins drive) and there’s local Bus Station at Ripon (5- 10 mins drive). Whilst there is a bus that comes through the village they are few and far between so it’s not a practical option. Taxi from the aforementioned locations is possible and there is a regular bus Harrogate to Ripon. So you’d need to research this further yourself.

Are you looking for a Gathering in Grace near you? Then you can consider hosting an event. If you can provide: a suitable venue (cost met by your group) – ideally light/spacious, enough attendees and donations sufficient to cover my costs to you then I will consider that option.
