Residential volunteers play an integral role in the daily running of the Findhorn Foundation. You’ll live, volunteer, and participate in spiritual life alongside coworkers and the community. It is a wonderful way to experience the Findhorn eco-community and perform love in action. Volunteers are needed in both The Park and at Cluny Hill, a former hotel five miles away in Forres.

Do you wish to make a difference? Do you understand the Foundation’s spiritual practices and would you like to explore them in everyday life?

As a volunteer, you’ll be introduced to our procedures and values in order to embody the practices of the Foundation and to support your development and deepening over time. You’ll join a nourishing and transformational environment in a unique and rewarding living experience, requiring a commitment to inner work and reflection.

Your volunteering commitment is for 30 hours a week. As some courses and workshops run full time, this may include some evenings and weekends. The minimum period for residential volunteering is 3 months.

In return for volunteering for 30 hours a week, you will receive accommodation and food (Cluny volunteers receive meals and Park volunteers receive food supplies), including all bills. You’ll be welcomed into a team and join their personal sharing and meditations, as well as take part in the general activities of the Foundation and community. There’s always a lot going on!
