This week will be an inspiring and reflective oasis that will support you in developing and/or deepening your personal spiritual practice. This spiritual retreat, which comes out of John’s 20 year connection with the Findhorn Foundation’s unique lineage, is suitable for everyone, whether you have a spiritual practice
already or whether you are still discovering your unique path. Through our time together this week we will look at the core practices of connection, reflection and service. What we do will be tailored to the needs and interests of you and your fellow spiritual explorers.
With John’s expert and loving facilitation, you will be able to sense what kinds of practices most inspire, nourish and sustain you. Possibilities include sitting and walking meditational techniques, silence, reflective practice, spiritual diaries, evening reviews, pilgrimage, shamanic journeying and divination so you can choose those you wish to explore further as you develop and strengthen your practice.

Our Spiritual Retreat Weeks offer a supportive environment for personal and spiritual development within the transformational field of Findhorn. Learn new tools and develop a range of skills you can incorporate into everyday life. Explore meditation and other exercises, and through living our founding principles approach ordinary activities in a mindful way that gives space for presence, creativity and joy.
There are daily sessions as a group and four shifts in Foundation service departments to integrate your spiritual life with daily living. The retreat is less of a group experience than Experience Week and the group is generally smaller. Deepen into the rhythm of daily meditation within the community and enjoy free time to join some of the special events also planned that week.
If you are contemplating a longer term commitment at Findhorn, a Spiritual Retreat Week offers an insight into living and engaging here. It also serves as a prerequisite for joining some of our further Essential Findhorn programmes such as the Living in Community Guest Programme and Living Essentials Apprentice Programme.
Our quoted prices are fully inclusive of participation in the workshop or event, accommodation in our guest rooms (including towels and linen), all meals and refreshments, and full access to our community facilities like our meditation sanctuaries. Some facilities, like our saunas and hot tub, ask for a donation for use.

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.
