Essential Findhorn focalisers

An introduction to the essence of the Findhorn Foundation.

For over forty years, the best way to come here and find out what it’s like! These seven days provide the ideal way to meet, engage with and share in an ever-evolving journey of deeply sustainable community living. As part of a group, you will be introduced to the spiritual principles and activities on which this dynamic community is based.

You join in most aspects of daily life here and experience our rhythms and practices. Four days of the week will include a few hours in one of our service departments - the gardens, kitchen, dining room, homecare or maintenance - giving you many opportunities to experience our practice of 'love in action' and to interact with other people in the community.

One of the aims of our community is to create an environment that enables each one of us to deepen our connection with all of life, and to open to transformation within ourselves and within the group. The invitation is to let go of limitations, open to love, and be the change you want to see in the world.

Experience Week is a rich and active week that asks for participation for most of the day and many evenings. We ask that you come willing to participate fully, to give of yourself and engage with others. Be open to surprise!

The programme runs from Saturday to Friday evening, and includes seven nights accommodation and all meals, from the first Saturday lunchtime through until breakfast on the Saturday morning of your departure. You should arrive before noon on the first day of your Experience Week, so that the group can begin together. You need to speak and understand English reasonably well - if you cannot, we do offer Experience Weeks in other languages.

Experience Week runs at both sites of the Findhorn Foundation, The Park and Cluny Hill. There are opportunities to experience both sites during the week.

We also offer a variety of themed Experience Weeks.

Booking Your Experience Week
When you book your Experience Week, please write a letter telling us about yourself, your spiritual background if any, and why you want to visit. (Most people write between one and two pages.) Please also specify if you have any mobility/accessibility needs. You can book online using the links on the right above, or print out and fax a Booking Form.

Please book as far in advance as you can to ensure the dates you prefer, as Experience Week is a popular programme. Please wait for confirmation of your booking before you travel, and arrange your travel plans so you can register between 11.00am and 12.15pm on the Saturday that your programme begins. It is important for you to be present for the first session of the week, which begins early Saturday afternoon.

The programme was carefully structured to playfully expose, deepen, hold and connect. I loved every minute.

The week was fantastic. Highly transformative and the safest container I've ever had for deep work. I would recommend it highly.
