Contribute to the seeding of the new earth
In a world full of challenges, how can we know where to focus our attention or how to make a difference?
This online community experience will strengthen your capacity to bring about the changes our world needs, offering a set of tools and practices to build a positive, life affirming relationship with yourself and the earth.
Explore the spiritual foundations of the Findhorn Community as a practical approach to daily living
When grounded in our connection to spirit we are guided in every moment, whatever the circumstances. When in touch with the intelligence of all life forms – visible and invisible – a world of possibilities opens before us.
When we are centred, we can better understand how to move through the planetary shadow of this time. We will explore the changes that happen in the birth of a new consciousness – a purpose that Findhorn strives to serve and demonstrate- and why it continues to resonate with so many today.
Together in this course we will build trust in our inner knowing, move from overwhelm to inspiration, enhance resilience, foster the spirit of connectedness and community, and harness our gifts to make a positive contribution.
The role of Findhorn is to help humanity turn within and be part of the solution to the chaos and confusion in the world.

Embark on this inner journey and discover:
This course will help to embrace community together, wherever you are living. By exploring the wisdom, teachings and practices as one large group, in smaller groups and personal sharing we will collectively enquire how community can encompass our personal values and unique strengths. There will be reflective exercises, journalling, and sharing of group dynamics, the interpersonal and individual challenges for living in harmony with others.
Each two-hour session will start with a meditation and reading from one of the founders of the Findhorn Community, complemented by current teachings and poems etc. to emphasise their relevance today. The weekly teaching focus will be accompanied by visual slide decks to inspire and integrate learnings and insights, along with space for reflection.
Katherine and Roger will co-host all eight sessions and invite selected guest teachers to join the exploration. They will share their spiritual learning and understanding of the spiritual impulse behind Findhorn, and offer a platform to empower others to share their experience, thus, co-creating a wellspring / fountain of collective knowledge and learning.
Contemplative knowledge is now more widely known, and verifies what the founders of Findhorn were sharing over 60 years ago. Signposts for people to further explore will be offered, including a resources list eg. Cynthia Bourgeault: The Wisdom Way of Knowing and the work of David Spangler through his research and teaching of Incarnational Spirituality.
How do we walk our talk and become an example beyond spiritual ideals and aspiration? Bridging and healing the divide between vision and action is vital and at the core of Findhorn’s teaching. Awareness of how pervasive the split is between what I’d like my life to be and how I act, is a first step in manifesting wholeness.

Katherine and Roger Collis
Roger and Katherine Collis have been associated with Findhorn for over 50 years since living there in the early 1970s. During that time they married, started their family and worked closely with the founders.
Upon leaving Scotland they moved to the United States as part of the founding of the Lorian Association – a sister organisation to the Findhorn Foundation. They are Findhorn Fellows, with Roger being a Trustee of the Findhorn Foundation for 14 years.
Living in California, they partner in mentoring groups and individuals and have taken their Findhorn experiences and applied them internationally, in business, government, education and within the nonprofit sector. They have two grown daughters and continue to share the importance of Findhorn in the world with humour and humility.
Katherine has a background in adult education, gerontology, human and spiritual development and is currently a spiritual counsellor, teacher and retreat leader. Roger is passionate about building structures and systems that support the emergence of new consciousness that hold a positive vision for the future. He works within the framework of the significant challenges, personal and collective, of adjusting to new ways of living in a regenerative planetary community, an expanded set of relationships that also includes Gaia and the multiple intelligences inhabiting non-physical realms of life.
Your session with us was as much a work of art as it was a session of wisdom level teaching. If my breakout group was any example, your choice of stories and information stirred responses below easy rational levels with a quality of authenticity present in what they each said.
