Liza Hollingshead

This is a unique opportunity to play the original version of the Game of Transformation while living and sharing together at the Foundation's retreat house, Traigh Bhan, on the island of Iona.

Situated on the west coast of Scotland, Iona is a sacred island known as a historic place of pilgrimage. Traigh Bhan is the Findhorn Foundation's retreat house on this magical island.

Traigh Bhan offers the opportunity for quiet contemplation, while the island itself - with its views and spectacular coastal scenery - is ideal for exploration and contact with nature's beauty. Your time in the beautiful landscape on the west coast of Scotland will complement your inner journey in this small gathering of five players.

Tiered price (click here for more information): £800 / £700 / £600

Tiered Pricing

Before you book your place, please take a moment to consider that the Findhorn Foundation is a Charitable Trust. We believe that the benefits of holistic learning should be available to everyone regardless of their financial or life situation, and that the transformational journey is enriched by a diversity of participants.

We recognise that what is affordable for some can be a financial stretch for others and offer a tiered pricing structure. When you book, please select the price that feels appropriate for you.

Pay it Forward Price covers the cost of your workshop and includes a contribution to our bursary fund. This will make participation possible for one or more people who otherwise would not be able to join our transformational work in the world.

Sustainable Price covers the cost of your workshop and helps us to sustain our learning and guest facilities.

Supported Price reflects a partial bursary toward the cost of your workshop and is intended for those with minor financial need.

Includes all programme content, 7 nights accommodation (maximum 5 guests) in shared rooms and vegetarian food for shared meals. Arrival time is midday Saturday, and departure time is the next Saturday morning.
