Britta Schmitz (PhD) has been part of the Findhorn Foundation since 2009. For five years she lived on the beautiful Isle of Erraid on the Scottish west coast. Living so close to the elements has had a big impact on her life and strengthened her connection to the earth and the divine.
She is passionate about creating a supportive environment for each participant’s individual transformational journey, enabling them to find out who they truly are and want to be in this world. For many years she has been part of the team that manages Cullerne, the Foundation’s organic food production garden, and held the staff intake programme. Currently she enjoys creating content for social media.
A large part of her spiritual path has taken her on a shamanic journey. Before she came to Erraid she trained as a primary school teacher, taught at university and wrote her PhD thesis on Gender Studies.
Ash Balderson has been part of the Findhorn Community for over ten years now. Together with her husband Sy she came to do Experience Week in Cluny. It was the first Experience Week of the year and the group bonded so well that many stayed here afterwards. Ash ended up focalising Cullerne Garden before the couple went away to live their lives in Scotland and England infused by their Findhorn experience. During the pandemic they came back and Ash is now a wholehearted gardener in Park Garden, living her passion for the plants and all the other beings in the garden in alignment with the core practices of the Findhorn Foundation.
Alex Wright first came to the Findhorn Foundation and Community over 12 years ago at the age of 19, when he fell in love with the wild landscape and the powerful effects of the practices we embody here at the Findhorn Foundation. He is passionate about creating media that uplifts and inspires people.
While he is more often found behind the scenes running the tech for events at the Findhorn Foundation, in 2020 he had a moment of inspiration when he conceived the steps behind Creating Findhorn Where You Are from his experiences of living and working here, and developed them into an online course.
