At the heart of ISF’s work is the spirit of honing oneself into the best person you can be – a thread running through Idries Shah’s many publications. This idea of personal fulfilment, is coupled with the ideal of giving rather than taking – opening oneself up to a full spectrum of possibility and opportunity rather than a blinkered view of life.
As a way of saluting those who have made exceptional contributions in their respective fields, we have established the annual ISF Awards for Human Achievement. More details will be made available in coming weeks and months.
The Awards themselves will take the form of gilded ormolu medallions, crafted in the workshops of Spink & Son, legendary medal-makers to Queen Elizabeth II, founded in 1666.
