Eveline Rodenburg & Hugo Klip
Away from the hustle and bustle of shopping centres and Christmas dinners we take time to go within and nourish our own body and soul. What wants to be born in us in this time of returning light?
We will celebrate winter solstice, prepare a simple delicious Christmas dinner together and there's a possibility of going to mass in the Iona abbey on Christmas Eve. This is a time of inner celebration!
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 long walks of exploration and contact with nature's beauty.
