=====================================

Whalley Abbey is a former Cistercian abbey in Whalley, Lancashire, England. After the dissolution of the monasteries, the abbey was largely demolished and a country house was built on the site. In the 20th century the house was modified and it is now the Retreat and Conference House of the Diocese of Blackburn. The ruins of the abbey have been designated by English Heritage as a Grade I listed building and a Scheduled Ancient Monument.

The North West Federation week-end is a residential event that takes place in the North West and is organised by the North Western Federation. It is held to encourage togetherness in the study of Theosophy.

The week-end is supported by The Foundation for Theosophical Studies, an educational charity, whose aims are to help people understand and discover the essential truths at the heart of all philosophy, science and spirituality especially the fundamental unity of all people.

The Theosophical Order of Service (TOS) was founded by Dr Annie Besant in February 1908 and celebrated a hundred years of service in 2008. All donations and funds raised are channelled towards humanitarian work and the promotion of harmony and understanding. The motto –

A Union of Those who Love
