Explore with Dr Sharon Clancy the experience of being a live-in staff member or student at an isolated residential adult education college in a country mansion, led by the charismatic Sir George Trevelyan, a pioneer of spiritual education. Was the residential experience profound, personal and transformational for staff and students, a space away from the ‘workaday world’ – or was it a source of social and emotional isolation?
