Craig Gibsone

The landscape of Findhorn Bay and the surrounding coastline are an inspiration for our week. Journeying with the four elements - earth, air, fire and water - we use the medium of clay to focus and centre ourselves, and to create spiritual alchemy.

There is time for reflection and insight that can be used to strengthen your inner commitment to a spiritual life. Clay is a magical and primal substance which comes alive and takes form from tea bowls to angels, bringing to us a sense of co-creating with the spiritual dimensions of all things.

Our Spiritual Practice Weeks support you to continue a path of transformation and growth in your everyday life. It will give you time to explore meditation, different kinds of exercises and to approach ordinary activities in a new way that encourages space for creativity and laughter.

There are daily sessions together and afternoons are in Foundation service departments to integrate practical life with your spiritual practice. The week is less of a group experience than in an Experience Week and you are more integrated into the life and rhythms of the community. The group is generally smaller and you will have time to take part in community meditations and events.

If you are thinking about a longer term commitment to staying at Findhorn, a Spiritual Practice Week is an option that can give you a good sense of what it is like to live here. It also serves as a prerequisite for joining some of our further Essential Findhorn programmes such as the Living in Community Guest Programme and Living Essentials Apprentice Programme.
