Living in Community Guest Programme

For details of registration and programme start time see here.

This course requires previous participation in Experience Week.

Ineke Vollebregt & Simone Pesson

This is a month-long programme and starts every Saturday except 7 January, 30 September and 23 December 2017.

The Living in Community Guest (LCG) programme invites you to explore living as part of the Findhorn Foundation for a month or more. It is a dynamic, creative and purposeful way to experience Service as Love in Action and the gifts that come through living in community. Sharing our lives in this vibrant environment opens the space for you to deepen your relationship with yourself, people and nature as well as your connection with Spirit.

The programme runs in four-week segments, starting most Saturdays. It begins with clarifying your individual purpose and ends with a personal review to support you in integrating your experiences and to explore your next steps. Using the process of attunement you join the team of one of our service departments (gardens, kitchens, dining room, homecare or maintenance) where the experience of Love in Action helps increase awareness, joy and freedom, creating an ever more meaningful experience of life.

When you want to join LCG for the first time or are returning to do the LCG Programme after more than one year, you need to participate in either Being in Community, a Spiritual Practice Week or one of our Service Weeks as a prerequisite week. You can also apply after having taken part in our longer programmes: Applied Ecovillage Living, Spiritual Deepening or the Findhorn Foundation College's Learning English in Community.

The prerequisite programme can be done any time within three months prior to joining LCG. During this programme we will invite you for an LCG intake interview and attunement. Please be aware that participation in the LCG Programme is not guaranteed in advance. For international visitors, participation in the LCG programme is subject to the duration of your visa.

LCG is also a necessary step towards making a longer commitment to the Findhorn Foundation through the Living Essentials Apprentice Programme (LEAP).

If you have just one month to be at Findhorn, you can participate in Being in Community as your first week (having previously completed Experience Week) and then participate in the LCG programme for the following three weeks.

If you are age 25 or under, we are offering this programme at a reduced price to make it easier for young people to afford. See below for details.

    Please note:
    Please note that 30 December 2017 is a restricted intake week – only those who have done LCG before can apply for this week.

Being in Park Homecare was one of my best Findhorn experiences and the core experience of LCG. It was a blissful time with a lot of insights and deep, nurturing connections with wise, sensitive people.
