Living Whole: Subtle Activism for the Planet

This programme is not currently scheduled.

For details of registration and programme start time see here.

Although recommended, this course does not require previous participation in an Experience Week. Another Living Whole programme (see link below), or a relevant Incarnational Spirituality online class with Lorian, is also recommended but not a prerequisite.


You are invited to radically revision the way you relate to yourself, to the sacred, to nature, to the subtle worlds and to the earth. Join Findhorn, the Lorian Association and David Spangler as you learn to serve in partnership with yourself, others and the world.

24–30 November 2012, residential week.
6 weeks on-line learning community (optional).

Subtle activism is the art of using your own subtle energy field – your own presence – in relationship with subtle and spiritual forces of the planet to promote wholeness, healing and transformation.

Working with principles of partnership and resonance, this programme offers ways for you to bring your inner resources of spirit and caring to make a positive contribution to issues in our world. You will learn practices of energetic engagement, develop skills in subtle activism, and explore how to make a difference in the energetic wholeness of our personal and collective lives, thus giving momentum to a future of grace and sustainability for our planet.


Online Facilitator: David Spangler

The residential week is led by Mary Inglis and Freya Secrest, with David Spangler contributing through live video-streaming discussions. The programme includes daily practice and reflection within the supportive holding context of the Findhorn community, as well as a specially designed day-long version of the Transformation Game to help explore and ground holistic patterns of consciousness and action in ourselves and the world.

The optional follow-up online learning community supports you to apply these skills in your immediate life situation, with peer group interaction and online discussions.
