Hello Dear One
Recently I received the gift of participating in an Experience Week – 19 years after my first introduction to the Findhorn Foundation! What a beautiful and precious experience it was to be with a group of women and men, most of who were here for the first time, and witness how openly we shared our inner selves with one another.
So it is with those thoughts in my mind that I again highlight our flagship programme and mention that we have four specially themed Experience Weeks coming up in September and October: Findhorn Erfahrungswoche (running twice), Ecovillage and LGBTQ. Please see our website for a full listing of the various Experience Week categories.
If you have already been touched by Findhorn and find yourself wanting to bring this experience more fully into your everyday life, we invite you on the heart-opening journey of the Findhorn Intensive, starting 6th September. Five residential weeks spread over the course of a year, with the support of mentoring and peer groups during the times at home, this is an opportunity to transform those parts of your self and your life that you really care about and long for. All while engaged in an enquiry into what it means to really live the Findhorn principles in grounded, everyday life.
I am noticing more and more that the air here at Findhorn is tingling with excitement as our New Story Summit draws closer. Although the summit is fully booked, this is a theme we can all be engaged with. We are encouraging creation of New Story hubs all over the globe so please keep an eye on our webpage for details of how you might form a group, join online for the first few days and then host your own New Story enquiry. You can of course join online as an individual – more about that closer to the time. (Remember, to receive advance notice of what is to be websteamed from Findhorn, please email with your name, country of residence and email address and ‘Please add me to the Findhorn Live mailing list’ in the subject line.)
