Deepening into the garden: A Park Garden Retreat

Start Date: 23/05/2022
End Date: 27/05/2022

Come and join us in our magical Findhorn Park Gardens to deepen your connection with the land and the plant kingdoms, during a week of inner and outer gardening.

Join the Park Garden team for a week of nature and beauty, connecting to your inner nature and to nature surrounding us. Together we will immerse ourselves into the tamed and cultivated parts, and the wild and raw parts, within nature and within ourselves.

While taking care of the beautifully landscaped gardens at the Findhorn ecovillage, we’ll connect to the wilder nature surrounding us and tend to our own inner landscape.

On our journey we will connect with earth, air, water and fire and the life force energy moving us all.

If you are ready for the magic of Findhorn to find you, please join us for this week.

There will be another Park Garden Retreat from 29 August to 2 September 2022.

Your guides in the garden

What you'll explore

This week offers the opportunity to build the community’s core practices into your daily life – work as love in action in the Original Garden, the source from which our community grew, and experience how we co-create with nature and the nature spirits.

Through physical gardening you might find that you also take care of your garden within. Connecting to nature in this way may help you choose which plants in your ‘inner garden’ need to be weeded out to give more space to the seeds you really want to grow in your life.

Above all you’ll experience the value of slowing down and noticing the restorative power of nature.

What to expect

Each day you will have time together in the gardens where we will be sowing, planting out, composting, weeding and beautifying the sacred spaces we hold.

We will also come together as a group for sharing, looking into our individual purposes of being here, spending time by the sea, having an evening at the fire, and reflecting upon the next steps we want to take in our lives.

There will also be times for you to retreat, to go inside and reflect on how you would like your ‘inner garden’ to look like and grow after spending time with us here at Findhorn.
