Retreats in the Park

Welcome to Retreats in the Park

Come to the iconic Findhorn Spiritual Community and enjoy a personal self-styled retreat by yourself or with your family and friends* while soaking up the energy of this sacred land and transformational field.

The pioneering spirit of the Findhorn Foundation goes back to 1962, when co-founders Eileen Caddy, Peter Caddy and Dorothy Maclean first arrived at the Park, which was a caravan park at the time. They followed their inner guidance, trust in spirit, and the willingness to act on a vision for building a new world. Others came to join them and soon a vibrant spiritual community emerged. Today the Findhorn Foundation and community continues to be a place for spiritual inspiration, lifelong learning and a pioneering centre for demonstrating consciousness in everyday life.

Its founding principles of inner listening, co-creation with nature and work as love in action have inspired countless authors, activists, changemakers, spiritual teachers and leaders including Robert Holden, Caroline Myss, Charles Eisenstein, Joanna Macy and countless more.

Now you can make the most of this exciting opportunity to conduct your very own personal self-styled retreat in one of our cosy guest house accommodations set amid the pine forests, iconic dunelands and spotless white beaches of north east Scotland.

*Restricted in line with Scottish Government rules on indoor gatherings and travel at the time of your booking/arrival. We apologise that currently we can only accept bookings in line with those restrictions.

Join us at the iconic Findhorn Foundation in beautiful Scotland

Situated on the beautiful Findhorn Bay, The Park Ecovillage is the perfect tranquil escape for a self-styled retreat. Apart from being one home of the Findhorn Foundation, The Park, for short, is a 15-hectare private estate making up a number of businesses, charities, and neighbourhoods. You can choose to take you retreat in one of five properties in one of these neighbourhoods.

Enjoy a peaceful meditation in the Original Garden, forest bathe in the nearby woodlands or stroll through the charming nearby village or gorse-dotted dunelands to the stunning Findhorn beach. The stunning Moray Coastline is one of Scotland’s best-kept secrets, be sure to take time out to watch seals and dolphins and the many bird varieties found on the bay. Red squirrel and deer are commonly found in the local area too. Enjoy the pubs, cafes, shops, water sports and heritage attractions in the village or simply sit on the bay or and enjoy the sunsets.

The beautiful Findhorn River and woodland walks are just a short drive away and only a little further afield are the majestic mountains of Cairngorms National Park in the Highlands.

Retreat and Booking Information

Findhorn Retreats are an opportunity to stay on our site at The Park, Findhorn, home of the Findhorn Foundation. There is no schedule imposed and guests are free to use their time here as they wish. Spend time in peaceful contemplation or meditation in the tranquil and picturesque Original Garden close to the caravan where the founders Eileen, Peter and Dorothy lived and to the site where Main Park Sanctuary had been. Walks on the beach and in the woods around The Park offer an opportunity to deepen your connection with nature. Or you can choose to spend your mornings practising ‘Work is Love in action in our gardens at The Park or Cullerne vegetable gardens.

You may be able to take part in a variety of community events, dependent on Covid regulations at time of arrival. Some of the Foundation and community activities are currently online, but we are hoping that as time progresses these may be offered in person.

In April this year, there were two fires overnight at the Findhorn Foundation, The Park. Two iconic Findhorn Foundation buildings were destroyed, both at the spiritual and social heart of the community – the community’s main meditation sanctuary and the community centre. After the loss of our precious buildings in the heart of our community, we are regrouping, attuning and connecting to spirit to bring down to earth the next phase of the Findhorn Foundation. The vitality of nature around the two sites is undiminished and our connection to nature as strong as ever. Although our community centre and main sanctuary are gone, the contemplative spaces in our gardens are bursting with love, peace and new life.

We invite you to join us in your own way to help with the reweaving the fabric of Love and Gratitude as we plan the rebuilding of our precious community structures and continue on our journey of making new beginnings and deepening our understanding through spiritual inquiry.

We hope you enjoy your retreat at The Park!
