Living in Community Guest Programme


Living in Community Guest Programme

Sat 18 July 2020 (28 Days) … more dates below!
Ineke Vollebregt and Jörn Fiebig

This is a month-long programme that starts every Saturday, with the exception of the period from 21 December 2019 to 17 January 2020 (inclusive).
28 December 2019 and 4 and 11 January 2020 are restricted intake weeks – only those who have done LCG before can apply for these weeks.

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.

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.

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.
