With the landscape of Findhorn Bay and the surrounding coastline as an inspiration for our retreat, we journey with the four elements - earth, air, fire and water - using the medium of clay to focus and centre ourselves, and to create spiritual alchemy. Clay is a magical and primal substance that comes alive and takes form, bringing us a sense of co-creating with the spiritual dimension of all things. There is time and space for reflection and insight that can help strengthen your inner commitment to a spiritual life.
Our Spiritual Practice Retreat Weeks offer a supportive environment for personal and spiritual development within the transformational field of Findhorn. Learn new tools and develop a range of skills you can incorporate into everyday life. Explore meditation and other exercises, and through living our founding principles approach ordinary activities in a mindful way that gives space for presence, creativity and joy.
There are daily sessions as a group and four shifts in Foundation service departments to integrate your spiritual life with daily living. The retreat is less of a group experience than Experience Week and the group is generally smaller. Deepen into the rhythm of daily meditation within the community and enjoy free time to join some of the special events also planned that week.
If you are contemplating a longer term commitment at Findhorn, a Spiritual Retreat Week offers an insight into living and engaging 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.
