Seminar Series:
Introduction to the
program for 2012


We welcome you to your reading of the ISS list of offerings for 2012. 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—you can pay at the door.

With every good wish for the year ahead,

Bishop Graeme Rutherford
Acting Director of the Institute for Spiritual Studies
