Covid guidelines

Updated 13 January 2022

As Covid restrictions ease further, we are very excited to reopen and are planning a full programme of online and onsite events and workshops in 2022 – the Foundation’s 50th year and the Community’s 60th year – and hope that you can come and visit us here in Scotland soon!

As the wellbeing of our visitors, coworkers and community is our top priority, we continue to adapt our Covid-19 response in line with Scottish Government guidelines, so that we can welcome you safely and responsibly.

Onsite and online programmes 2022

We are very happy to announce the return of Experience Week at Cluny, starting March 2022, followed by The Eldest Daughter Retreat, also in March and our annual Festival of Sacred Music and Song returns in July.

Our new programme of online courses starts with Leading from the Future, which runs for 6 months from st February 2022 and Creating Findhorn Where You Are, an exciting new 8-module course over 4 months. We have these and many more on our Workshops and Events page.

Work with us

We are also recruiting for a number of paid and volunteer positions so have a look at our jobs page if this is of interest to you or someone you know.

Book with confidence

We hope that you will join us in whatever way is possible for you in 2022.

If you are booking onsite programmes, we are here to support you. If you need to cancel before the start of the workshop/event because of testing positive for Covid-19, or you have to self isolate or are caring for someone with Covid  we will refund your payment minus the booking fee. If you are unable to attend due to a change in UK Government lockdown rules you will receive a full refund, including the booking fee. If any workshop/event is terminated due to a Covid outbreak on site, participants will be refunded on a pro-rata basis on request. See our Terms and Conditions for full and most up to date details.
