In Findhorn's 50th birthday year we invite you to join our co-creative Easter Gathering in the transformative field of consciousness emerging at this time, calling us to expand into the greater reality that has always been there and take a further step beyond fear and into Love.

Down the ages, mystics of the world's spiritual traditions have awakened to this reality and now quantum scientists are re-discovering that there is a greater whole beyond our sense-bound perception. Human consciousness is evolving, and the process is speeding up - towards the realisation that there are no boundaries in Love, for what one is, all are. This reality calls us to birth and embody our inner divinity and, in so doing, embrace our universal humanity. This is Christ Consciousness.

The breaking down of the old - marked by the challenges of our time - calls forth the breaking through of the new. For fifty years the Findhorn Community has been a grassroots movement inspiring us to awaken to the divinity within, and live and work in conscious co-creation with nature. Eileen Caddy, one of our three co-founders, has been seen by many as a mystic who recognised her Christhood and sought to express it through practising unconditional love.

This Gathering is an integral part of an emerging process. Organisations actively supporting it include CANA (Christians Awakening to a New Awareness), the Wrekin Trust, Contemplative Fire and Friends of Iona. CANA and the Wrekin Trust are collaborating with the Findhorn Foundation in creating an interactive website for exploration, Into Christ Consciousness. Offering features, resources and a mailing list, the site aims to support people in linking with others on a similar journey. We offer the Gathering as an event in which we join to work actively, both for the transformation of our own consciousness, and in service to the whole. All who come are contributors.

Tiered Pricing

We want to ensure that our workshops and events are accessible to a diverse range of people and recognise that one person’s financial situation will differ from another.

Please take a moment to read about our tiered pricing here.

Includes 4 nights accommodation and all meals.

Please note:
Due to the popularity of all the programmes running during this week, residential accommodation for this event is no longer available. Participation is still welcomed (and will include lunch, dinner and teas) but you will need to find your own accommodation. There will be a discount of £60 on the above prices to attend this event non-residentially. Please click here for a list of local Bed and Breakfast Guest Houses.

Join us in creating a group chalice. This will be a gathering created by group-synergy, not in the usual conference format. Participating together in silence and meditation, ceremonies of song and story, poetry and dance, in personal sharing, in exploration and in practical discussion, we join to open a channel for a consciousness that can meet a changing world with compassion and creativity.

To become a Universal Human is to evolve consciously, choosing a path of development that has never been mapped before in a world that has never existed before.
