Findhorn Reflections: A Very Personal Take

Findhorn Reflections: A Very Personal Take on Life Inside the Famous Spiritual Community and Ecovillage by Graham Meltzer is reviewed by community member Thomas Miller. It can be bewildering to try to tell the Findhorn Foundation’s story given the community’s enormous diversity. Members who are sharing with first-time guest groups often use a standard disclaimer that what they are giving is their opinion and that the guests are sure to find someone here with the opposite view. Given this, perhaps the best way to approach the community’s story is to fully embrace the multiplicity and see the community as a choir of different voices that somehow harmonise despite their different melodies and pitches. This is exactly what Graham Meltzer’s latest book Findhorn Reflections does. It sings his own celebratory, provocative, intimate and thoroughly personal song while pointing out some of the larger themes and patterns of the community’s music of emergence. (read more…)

The New Age can be very confusing. What are we to make of a movement that ranges from the most profound and wise teachings on the one hand, to people selling crystals on the street corner on the other – and includes everything from occult practices to new science, personal growth to holistic medicine, sustainable communities to channels and UFO abductees? Underneath all the contradictions and confusions of the New Age movement, however, is a very ancient idea, a spiritual idea that can put us in touch with an inexhaustible source of creative energy and vision at the very foundations of the universe. It is a vision of a loving world – a sacred world – and of the creative power in each of us to bring that world into being. (read more…)
