Being In Community

Essential Findhorn focalisers

Being In Community (BIC) is a week that gives you time and space to integrate your experience of the Findhorn Foundation after another programme. You may also find it an attractive option if you just want to come back to visit and reconnect with the community.

There is less emphasis on a group experience than in Experience Week, and you are more integrated into the life and daily rhythms of the community. The group size is generally smaller and the programme will run even for one person. You may opt for creating your week according to your need or to join the group for sharings, the possibilities of a group project, a nature outing and if there is interest, a taste of the Transformation Game®. Whatever you choose, you will participate in a service department as a continued expression and experience of our guiding principle of 'love in action'. Evenings provide opportunities to join in with community activities and explore different aspects of living here, which may include spiritual and personal development, creative arts and sustainable living.

Outside the CCIf you are thinking about a longer term commitment to staying in the Foundation, BIC is an option that can give you a good sense of what it is like to live here. It also serves as a prerequisite for joining some of our further Essential Findhorn programmes such as the Living in Community Guest Programme and Living Essentials Apprentice Programme.

I wanted a way of reconnecting with Findhorn after a long absence and this provided it well, with activities and free time to find my own way of interacting with the community.
