Immerse yourself in seven days of spiritual retreat, to press pause on your life and consider: Are you taking time in nature to listen to that small, wise voice within? Would you say your daily life is love in action? Fall still for a little while and let nature and the peace of Iona help you co-create your best vision of yourself, and how you can transition to be the You you choose.
On this retreat we’ll explore the island and soak up its soul-healing magic as we consider what no longer serves us and how we can liberate the inner Selves that inspire us. Sharing within the group will support our journeys and nature will be our guide.
Situated on the west coast of Scotland, Iona is a sacred island known as a historic place of pilgrimage. Its unique presence and beauty has drawn spiritual seekers and mystics for centuries. 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. Scotland’s western isles are famous for their beauty, and Iona is often considered to be the “pearl of the isles” with its white beaches, rolling hills and ancient bedrock. As a retreat setting, it refreshes and renews the spirit.
If you need time to integrate the lessons of a workshop or space to reflect on your own journey and next steps, Traigh Bhan is the perfect place for spiritual rest and renewal. Comfortable and well-equipped, the house has its own peaceful sanctuary for prayer and meditation. Our residential Foundation custodian can guide you in making the most of your time.
Our quoted prices are fully inclusive of participation in the workshop or retreat, accommodation (maximum 6 guests) in shared rooms (including towels and linen) and vegetarian food for shared meals. Arrival time is midday Saturday, and departure time is the next Saturday morning.
Before you book your place, please take a moment to consider that the Findhorn Foundation is a Charitable Trust. We believe that the benefits of holistic learning should be available to everyone regardless of their financial or life situation, and that the transformational journey is enriched by a diversity of participants.
We recognise that what is affordable for some can be a financial stretch for others and offer a tiered pricing structure. When you book, please select the price that feels appropriate for you.
Pay it Forward Price covers the cost of your workshop and includes a contribution to our bursary fund. This will make participation possible for one or more people who otherwise would not be able to join our transformational work in the world.
Sustainable Price covers the cost of your workshop and helps us to sustain our learning and guest facilities.
Supported Price reflects a partial bursary toward the cost of your workshop and is intended for those with minor financial need.
