The 2020 ISF Mind, Body & Spirit Week, the ISF’s annual education and training conference, and its Biennial Members Meeting, will be held 24th – 31th July 2020 at Cober Hill, Scarborough, UK).
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 into that the excellent tutors we have to coach and teach, and we hope it will be a perfect week!
This year Cober Hill will provide a unique and tranquil setting in which to relax, unwind and learn! It is located within the stunning North Yorks National Park and overlooks the fabulous Heritage Coast. It is a Victorian mansion, steeped in history and set in 11 acres of stunning grounds.
