Directions for finding 409, The Field of Dreams where the course is being held. The Findhorn Foundation is facing Findhorn bay on B9011 from Kinloss. Pass the army base on the right hand side and the Foundation is next to it also on the right hand side. Turn right into the Foundation, and almost immediately left straight up 'the runway' to the top, turn right and No 409 is the first house on the right, about 50 yards along. It is a three storey house and has a small bridge up to the front door.
We are pleased and proud to hold this programme at the Findhorn Foundation and Community in northeast Scotland, a 50-year-old international spiritual community and working ecovillage with an inspiring story to tell. The community is an unfolding experiment in personal, social, ecological and economic sustainability with the intention to further the evolution of human consciousness.
This beautiful peninsula surrounded by Findhorn Bay, Culbin Forest and sand dunes is the perfect place to explore supervision as Spiritual Practice and Mindfulness. For seven days you will be part of this adventure in holistic living – you will eat delicious fresh vegetarian food much of which is grown in the community’s organic gardens, cooked by Findhorn Foundation co-workers (with love) and eaten in the Community Centre with the community, a friendly bunch who will happily engage with you. (Joining in KP – 40 minutes of simple kitchen cleanup after one of your meals – is an optional extra. Experience work as love in action!)
Your stay will include an introduction to the community, its founding principles, the joys and challenges of its organic development and a tour of The Park Ecovillage with its many ecohouses, The Living Machine natural waste water purification plant, wind generators and the famous recycled whisky barrel houses.
You will stay in simple, comfortable accommodation with shared bathrooms and kitchen/lounge area. Breakfast is do-it-yourself with all ingredients provided. You have a choice of a single (with single supplement) or shared room.
As part of the community you are free to join in:
