Leap Programme


Leap Programme

Event is not currently scheduled

The Leap Programme is currently closed to new applicants due to the Covid 19 pandemic. The date that we plan to re-open for Findhorn Foundation workshops is 2nd October 2020. However, we hope to re-open the Short Term Leap programme some time before that. This may require some adjustments to the programme in order to meet the Scottish Government Guidelines applicable at the time and we will offer more information about that as it becomes available.

We plan to run the Autumn Long Term Leap starting in October, assuming that we are in Phase three of Government guidelines then.

If you have already participated in three months of LCG and are hoping to apply for Leap when we reopen, please email us at [email protected] with any queries that you might have or to register interest.

Please check back here regularly for the latest information on our Leap opening date!

Are you ready to turn the page in your life and take a leap into the next chapter?

The Leap Programme offers you the opportunity to live, work and learn in the Findhorn Foundation for an extended period of time. Living in a spiritual community, all day every day, is a life-changing immersion into new ways of seeing and being with yourself, with others and with the world.
Joining the Leap stream is an essential step if you wish to progress toward becoming a member of staff at the Findhorn Foundation. It is also for anyone who wants an opportunity to practise applying spiritual principles in your everyday life, learning awareness and gaining skills to take with you wherever you go.

If accepted onto Leap, you join in a service department where you help to provide the essentials of community for our weekly guests to visit and experience, while you also engage in your own spiritual and personal development and participate in community meetings and gatherings. It’s a full-on experience! You would commit to participating fully in life here, including service rotas and Foundation community meetings. We will provide you with food, simple accommodation and a supportive learning environment, including group meetings and mentoring or support sessions.


We consider applications for Leap in a process of mutual assessment of your time here in previous programmes such as Living in Community Guest (LCG), and through attunement. Spaces on the Leap programme are subject to the needs of our service departments and availability of living space at the time of your application.

After doing Experience Week plus three months of LCG, you can apply to spend two to six months as a Short-Term Leap. Following assessment and review, if you wish to make a longer commitment (six months minimum) you can become a Long-Term Leap. Long-Term Leap begins twice a year with five intense days of deeper induction into the principles and spiritual practice of the Findhorn Foundation.

We welcome applications for this programme all year round.

Participation in this programme does not guarantee that you will become a member of staff in the future.

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.

Thank you.

Next intake date for Long Term Leap: October 2020.
