Isle of Iona

Situated on the west coast of Scotland, Iona is a sacred island known as a historic place of pilgrimage. Traigh Bhan is the Findhorn Foundation’s retreat house on this magical island, offering the opportunity for quiet contemplation. With its views and spectacular coastal scenery, Iona is ideal for long walks of exploration and contact with nature’s beauty.

Take space for yourself in an unstructured setting, to meditate, to reflect, to walk, and to breathe. It is a unique gift to step away from all the busyness and take time to rest and renew body and soul. If you need time to integrate the lessons of a workshop or space to reflect on your own journey and next steps, Traigh Bhan is the perfect place for spiritual rest and renewal.

Throughout the year there are a variety of retreat weeks, listed below in alphabetical order, based on a theme. For these weeks you will have a programme of meditation and activity related to the theme, and a focaliser for the week.
