Findhorn Fellows

Findhorn Foundation Fellows

The group of Findhorn Fellows who participated in the Foundation’s 50th birthday celebrations in 2012

Many people who have lived here have taken what they have experienced at Findhorn out into the wider world. They are workshop leaders, authors, economists, scientists, artists, IT specialists, film makers, ecologists – all kinds of ordinary people living a conscious, holistic-based life. We are also blessed with many friends and supporters around the globe, who further extend our network of light, including our supporters network and Resource People.

In addition, the Findhorn Foundation has over a hundred Fellows, individuals whom we honour and appreciate for their transformative work in the world. All these Findhorn Fellows have a strong connection with our community and find a strong resonance of their work in the world with ours.

Below you will find a list of all our Findhorn Fellows. We add the designation emeritus for those Fellows who have retired or are no longer active in their chosen fields, as we continue to value and appreciate their work in the world.
