Gardening through attunement – on Iona

Gardening through attunement – on Iona

Sat 6 June 2020 (7 Days)
Maria Olsthoorn

This is an opportunity to enjoy the magical Isle of Iona and practice co-creation with the subtle energy consciousness of air, land, sea, rocks and plants through attunement and inner listening. We will practice following guidance and intuition to be in a positive and harmonious partnership with the unseen realms. whilst working together in Traigh Bhan’s beautiful flower and vegetable garden: preparing it for the season in spring. Afternoons and evenings will be free.

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. 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.

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.
