A series of residential international dialogues exploring the integration of spirituality in healthcare was first conceived in December 2010 at the Global Hospital and Research Centre, Mt Abu, India. The plan was to hold them as retreats annually around the world over three years. So popular had the Still Point – Turning World (SPTW) retreats become, that six retreats were held.
The first was in New York (October 2011), the second in Sydney (March 2012), the third in Oxford (September 2012) and the fourth one in Mount Abu (September 2013). The last two retreats were held in Oxford UK in 2014 and 2015. We are anticipating a seventh International SPTW retreat in October 2017 in the USA. Details and reports for each retreat can be found on the page Past Retreats.
The retreats have been hosted jointly by The Janki Foundation for Spirituality in Healthcare (UK), Point of Life Foundation (USA), Global Hospital Research Centre (Rajasthan, India), and the Brahma Kumaris (UK, USA, Australia and India).
