We offer our space and services on a minimum pricing basis allowing as many as possible to attend to deepen their sense of well-being. We are where we are now, due to the personal, physical and financial support and contribution from many who have been here before. Generosity diminishes self-centredness and makes room for the well-being of others. We offer the possibility to donate through the Retreat Fund and/or the Development Fund.
Support others to come – The Retreat Fund
If you have benefited from a retreat here, this is a wonderful opportunity to express generosity towards other people for whom the cost of coming on a retreat is too high and where financial assistance would be appreciated.
Support some projects – The Development Fund
There are a number of development projects in the pipeline to enable us to reach more people in different ways who are committed to knowing themselves and dissolving the barriers getting in the way of experiencing a deeper inner peace. Our current top two projects are:
Increasing the size of the group room
We are in the process of creating a larger group room by extending the lounge. This will allow groups to have more space for body work like yoga, dance, Tai-Chi or breath work. The new group room will have a wider view of the Ochills and a tranquil view over the garden towards the South.
Redesigning our access
Good access which is easy for guests and has a low impact on neighbours is important. We are in the process of redesigning the track between the public road and the lodge.
We need to give each other the space to grow, to be ourselves, to exercise our diversity. We need to give each other space so that we may both give and receive such beautiful things as ideas, openness, dignity, joy, healing, and inclusion

The Investment Fund
This fund allows for tranches of money to be loaned to the holding company that leases to Cherry Tree Lodge Retreat Centre for infrastructure development and so create a more sustainable future for all involved in the offering.
We are aiming to raise capital collaboratively and offer the prospective lenders a higher rate of interest than is normally available from high street banks.
We are currently sourcing investment capital and would welcome a discussion with potential funders.
The John Reilly Gallery
The John Reilly Gallery is a collection of art that can speak to the soul. There are around 50 images that uniquely express the links between matter and spirit, light and shadow, male and female with an uncanny relevance to contemporary life. You will see John’s work on the walls here.
Reproductions of his work are available for purchase. The proceeds are divided between the Retreat Fund and the Development Fund.
