Retreats at Findhorn

We offer remote, rural retreats in a coastal Ecovillage context that can either be a time of solitude or a community experience. Some retreats are held in silence, and on others there may be a great deal of conversation. Retreats are considered essential in most world religions and allow time for reflection, nature immersion, meditation, body movement, sauna/hot tub or rest.

The retreat can be defined in the most simplest of terms as a definite time (from a few hours in length to a month) spent away from one’s normal life for the purpose of reconnecting with ones own essence or purpose or if you like The Divine. Retreats may have various themes that reinforce certain values or principles of the Findhorn Foundation. They may be individual or involve a group. Retreat centers typically offer overnight accommodations (such as in a bungalow), meals, activities, meeting rooms and sacred space.

We offer a range of retreats at Findhorn every year, see below. You can also design your own retreat time by contacting us here
