How can we become more loving and thrive in our daily lives? How can we co-create a thriving and loving world?
Together we’ll travel through eight steps that deepen our connection with the essence of the Findhorn Foundation, and support us in creating lives that are physically, emotionally and spiritually healthy and whole, enabling us to connect lovingly with those around us.
During our time together community members will share how we embody our core practices in different areas of our lives. Together we will explore the steps we can take to create the life we really want to live. We’ll build in times of meditation, contemplation, attunement, nature connection, loving what we are doing and whom we are doing it with, movement, healthy eating, self love, heart-open connection to others and much more.

What to expect
We will be going on this journey together. Join us for this unique journey – here’s what to look forward to:
- Each week we will meet for the main sessions on Tuesdays at 7pm (UK time) for two hours, live on Zoom (or catch up with the recording at a time that suits you). The main sessions will be held by our facilitators and guest presenters.
- You will be part of smaller homegroups on Zoom at times that work for you. The homegroups will be facilitated by a member of the Findhorn Foundation or community.
- You will also meet in sharing trios, peer groups of fellow travellers, at a time that works for the three of you. You can check in with your trio whenever and as often as you like.
- We also have an online course hub, which is our new interactive online platform to support you in your journey. This is an opportunity to become clear on your own personal quest by interacting with other travellers. In the hub you will find the replays of the main sessions for you to watch at your leisure, plus additional inspirational material on each step (videos, documents, etc.).

Meet your guides
Britta Schmitz (PhD) has been part of the Findhorn Foundation since 2009. For five years she lived on the beautiful Isle of Erraid on the Scottish west coast. Living so close to the elements has had a big impact on her life and strengthened her connection to the earth and the divine.
She is passionate about creating a supportive environment for each participant’s individual transformational journey, enabling them to find out who they truly are and want to be in this world. For many years she has been part of the team that manages Cullerne, the Foundation’s organic food production garden, and held the staff intake programme. Currently she enjoys creating content for social media.
A large part of her spiritual path has taken her on a shamanic journey. Before she came to Erraid she trained as a primary school teacher, taught at university and wrote her PhD thesis on Gender Studies.
Cathy’s very new to the Findhorn Foundation and is Creating Findhorn Where SHE Is, living with her family in rural Worcestershire. Like many of you, she’s a bit of a free spirit and stepped away from a fairly conventional career in leadership development in 2005, with the motto ‘earn less; live more’.
After walking in Gandhi’s footsteps, supporting women’s self-help groups in Tamil Nadu, and heading off into the desert with the Bedouin, she found herself working as a relationship coach online.
Her work for the Foundation is giving birth to our new online courses, so we can share the learnings unfolding here for almost 60 years, with people all over the globe.
