This week, in the wilder parts of the land between The Park, Findhorn Village and the sea, offers an opportunity to explore with other like-minded people how we can turn the challenges in our lives into opportunities for positive change.
The Findhorn Foundation Community & Ecovillage and the surrounding ‘Hinterland’ are living examples of reasons for hope when outer circumstances can seem quite dire. Just as our connection with the intelligence in Nature produced the near miraculous, famous results in the Findhorn Gardens, we are still drawing inspiration from Nature’s ability to heal itself – and our ability to make a positive difference through our willingness to cooperate with the spirit in Nature.
The week will be conducted mostly in the semi-wild outdoors around The Park, it’s woodlands, heath lands and dunes. It is a summer ‘wild’ camping retreat: accommodation will be in your own tent on our designated woodland camping pads. Basic facilities of a compost toilet, running water, a sheltered space for gatherings and a central fire will be provided.
We will reflect in small groups on our experience of the challenges of life and will explore ways to turn these challenges into opportunities – with Nature as our guide. There will be an emphasis on using all of our senses to deepen our communication, our communion and our sense of community with all that is alive.
The facilitators for the week will include long term community resident, retreat leader and Findhorn Hinterland Trust Land Manager, Kajedo Wanderer, with presentations by Alan Watson Featherstone, founder of the award winning Scottish environmental charity Trees for Life and Jonathan Caddy, ecologist, son of the community founders, and present Chair of the FHT.
