Living in Community Guest Programme

Sat 3 October 2020 (28 Days) … more dates below!
Ineke Vollebregt and Jörn Fiebig

The Living in Community Guest Programme (LCG) is currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We plan to re-open for Findhorn Foundation workshops on 2nd October 2020, however, we hope to open LCG some time before October. It is possible that we might adjust the format of the programme slightly from the familiar LCG in order to do this. The precise opening time and the programme schedule that we offer will depend on the Scottish Government Guidelines applicable at the time.

If you are hoping to apply for LCG when we are open, please email us at [email protected] to register interest or with any queries that you might have.

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


The Living in Community Guest (LCG) programme invites you to explore living as part of the Findhorn Foundation for a month or more. It is a dynamic, creative and purposeful way to experience Service as Love in Action and the gifts that come through living in community. Sharing our lives in this vibrant environment opens the space for you to deepen your relationship with yourself, people and nature as well as your connection with Spirit.

The programme runs in four-week segments, starting most Saturdays. It begins with clarifying your individual purpose and ends with a personal review to support you in integrating your experiences and to explore your next steps. Using the process of attunement you join the team of one of our service departments (gardens, kitchens, dining room, homecare or maintenance) where the experience of Love in Action helps increase awareness, joy and freedom, creating an ever more meaningful experience of life.

When you want to join LCG for the first time, or are returning to do the LCG Programme after more than one year, you need to have participated in an Experience Week (it could be many years ago!) plus one of the following weeks: Being in Community, Findhorn Spiritual Retreat Week or one of our Service Weeks as a prerequisite week within three month before starting LCG. You can also apply after having taken part in our longer programmes: Applied Ecovillage Living, Spiritual Deepening or the Findhorn Foundation College’s Learning English in Community.

The prerequisite programme can be done any time within three months prior to joining LCG. During this programme we will invite you for an LCG intake interview and attunement. Please be aware that participation in the LCG Programme is not guaranteed in advance. For international visitors, participation in the LCG programme is subject to the duration of your visa.

LCG is also a necessary step towards making a longer commitment to the Findhorn Foundation in the Leap programme.

If you have just one month to be at Findhorn, you can participate in any of the prerequisite weeks as your first week (having previously completed Experience Week) and then participate in the LCG programme for the following three weeks.

If you are age 25 or under, we are offering this programme at a reduced price to make it easier for young people to afford. See under Tiered Pricing below for details.

For more information and to arrange an interview please email [email protected]

Tiered Pricing…

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.

Thank you.

If you intend applying for a bursary, please bring your request to the interview with the LCG focalisers.
