I first heard of the Coach House in the late 1990s when I was a trustee of The Salisbury Centre in Edinburgh and my work was a mixture of complementary therapies, community education and administration/organisation, but my first visit wasn’t until 2016. Since then, my affection has deepened and I’ve returned as both retreatant and trustee. Here is my place of safety and serenity, to explore inner and outer landscapes.
It’s especially important to me that the Coach House is inclusive of all (people and spiritual traditions), partly as my own path is multi-strand, anchored in Quakers, deepened by wisdom from earth-based, Christian and Buddhist practices. Here I find it easy to harness these elements and more – landscape, soothing surroundings, creativity, peaceful joyful exploration, delicious food, labyrinth and garden.
Here, rest and reflection come easily.
