Creating a Positive Future

The Findhorn Foundation and surrounding community at The Park, Findhorn and at Cluny Hill in Forres, is a vibrant, creative home to more than 400 people from all over the world. Together, and with the thousands of people who visit each year, we are exploring the challenge and task of creating new ways of living to promote:

  • inner listening and self-knowledge
  • peaceful relationships
  • cooperation with nature
  • sustainability on all levels

By being the change we want to see in the world, listening to the deepest part of our being and cooperating with nature and with each other, we have since 1962 been at the forefront of creating a positive and sustainable future.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing which ever has.

Margaret Mead

The community’s vision for a positive future is expressed in everything that you see around you when you visit the Findhorn Foundation. It is in the people who live here, and in the people who visit here and leave inspired, knowing that it is possible to make a difference in the world and do that in their own ways, every day, around the world.

Through all our activities we do our best to put spiritual values into practice and to demonstrate new and sustainable ways to live: as a learning community for personal and social change, cultivating an ecovillage, creating a culture of peace through our commitment to open and honest interactions, growing food, building houses, running businesses, erecting wind turbines, recycling, meditating, exploring alternative economic systems, our family life.

The community has no formal doctrine or creed, and practises the timeless and essential values common to all the world’s major religious paths.

As our service, we aim to pioneer, inspire, demonstrate, encourage and share our experience. It is the consciousness, motivation, mindfulness, creative energy and joy that we bring to all of these activities that make visions a reality and bring lasting, positive change to the world.
