Brinscall Hall is the retreat centre for the School of Practical Philosophy and Meditation in the North West of England.

For over fifty years Practical Philosophy has been helping people to come to a greater understanding of themselves and the world in which they live and to find happiness within themselves and help to establish harmony within the universe.

Practical Philosophy is the main subject we teach in the school and we do this in a non-academic way through discussions that relate to our experiences in daily life.  All the many other subjects and areas of interest are offered in this same spirit of enquiry into truth and true principles.  To find out more just click on
