The ISF annual events are very special, bringing together like-minded people to share, learn and to socialise together. The events also give the opportunity for members to liaise with other Spiritualists who might be following a similar path, giving the chance to share problems and solutions. At our gatherings, the important factor is the inclusive atmosphere in learning. We may all come from different parts of the globe, but in learning together, we all benefit for our experience and knowledge. Add in to that the excellent tutors we have to coach and teach, and we hope it will be a perfect week!
