2022 Philosophy & Ethics SIG Annual Summer Retreat

2022 Philosophy & Ethics SIG Annual Summer Retreat


This year's annual meeting: 

British Pain Society Summer Retreat

Hosted by the Philosophy and Ethics SIG

Rydal Hall, Cumbria 19th -22nd June 2022

Understanding pain in a complex world: thinking out of the box

Join us at our Summer retreat at the 17th Century mansion, Rydal Hall, Cumbria in the beautiful surroundings of the lake district from 19th to 22nd June. 

Our aim  is to enable everyone to reflect, recharge and relax. Our programme is structured around interesting speakers but formal and informal  discussion is an important feature of our meetngs. There is time off in the afternoons to enjoy the gardens, parkland and the surrounding hills and lakes, and some of the most fruitful  conversations  take place on walks in the glorious countriside.  Rydal water is a few minutes walk away so wild swimming is an option for the courageous! In the evening you might head off to the local hostelry, The Badger, where continuing discussion is lubricated  by  the excellent local beer !  

As an alternative to staying in one of the rooms some people  prefer to camp in the grounds or stay in one of the yurts. Partners are welcome.
