Retreats at Findhorn
We offer remote, coastal retreats in an Ecovillage context. Some retreats are held in solitude, and others offer a community experience.
Most world religions encourage some kind of retreat practice, including reflection, meditation, nature immersion, movement, singing, community service, change of diet and many other forms. A retreat is any definite time (from a few hours to a month or more) spent away from ordinary life for the purpose of reconnecting with the spirit that inhabits the centre of life, nature, earth, cosmos and our highest selves.
Every year we offer a range of retreats based on the Findhorn Foundation Principles. Our retreats include overnight accommodations, meals, activities, meeting rooms and sacred space. We can also work with you to design a retreat to meet the needs of your group…for more information Click here
