Essential Findhorn

The Findhorn Foundation has developed a series of its own workshops based on more than 50 years of experience as a centre for holistic learning. Essential Findhorn begins with Experience Week and continues on a journey towards a unique blend of practical spirituality and conscious, sustainable living.

Knowing that global change begins within each one of us, we offer workshops which encourage deep self-discovery in a community where everyone, from the cook to the administrator, is part of a lively and supportive learning environment.

Essential Findhorn is a valuable life experience whether you intend to join in just one workshop or hope to be in the community for a longer period of time.

  • Experience Week

    This is the ideal way to come here and find out what it’s like – engage with and share in an ever-evolving journey that is the Findhorn Foundation Community. Immerse yourself in conscious living and personal and planetary transformation.

  • Being in Community

    Extend your stay in the community after Experience Week and deepen your personal journey. A more spacious week, there is time for integration and deeper exploration of conscious living. It's also an ideal opportunity to return for another visit and enjoy a retreat from your everyday life.

  • Spiritual Practice

    A week long spiritual retreat is a nurturing way for you to connect with your innermost self and reflect on life. Participate after Experience Week or when you return to the community again and further explore your spiritual development.

  • Service Weeks

    These uniquely Findhorn Service Weeks are an affordable way to return to the community and immerse yourself in life here. Lend a hand and be open to the gifts of service, by applying spiritual principles in everyday life.

  • Applied Ecovillage Living

    This unique four-week programme draws on the experience and expertise developed within the Findhorn Ecovillage over the past 50+ years.

  • Living in Community Guest

    Explore your personal development and engage in the community for an extended time. Enjoy four weeks with the Foundation's kitchen, garden, homecare or maintenance departments, with group sharing, learning and mindful living, getting to know yourself and the community around you in a new way.

  • Spiritual Deepening Programme

    A month long spiritual retreat to deeply engage with your own inner wisdom and come alive in a new way, this is an opportunity to practise sustainability on all levels.

  • Living Essentials Apprentice Programme

    LEAP is our new staff intake programme, where we invite you to join the practice of being mindful in every moment. Choose to live everyday life as a spiritual path and step into inspired leadership.
