Seminar Series:
Introduction to the
program for 2010


We welcome you to your reading of the ISS list of offerings for 2010. As ever, there is a range of topics and times designed to offer at least several seminars that sound like something you would very much wish to attend. Please let others know what is on, and feel free to encourage them to join with us. Many of those who attend our evening seminars may well decide to come at the last moment — this is fine by us. When it comes to the all-day seminars, it helps our catering if you book in advance.

With every good wish for the year ahead,

Rev'd Dr John Davis
Vicar of St Peter's Eastern Hill, Melbourne
Director of the Institute for Spiritual Studies
