Findhorn Foundation
We are so deeply grateful to welcome you with a range of transformative events and experiences
Dear Friends,

As I write this, our second group of participants is coming to the end of their Experience Week at our re-opened Cluny Hill site and we’re feeling gratitude and renewed purpose to be running this and other workshops again after so long. It seems all is very well at Cluny too – here’s what some in the first group had to say of their Week:
'One highlight was how grounded and calm I felt. Sometimes I had to pinch myself.'
'Loved the content, structure and activities in the week, carefully curated with love and learnt wisdom.'
'The program helps me to be the best me I can be. I am taking a lot away with me with thankfulness.'
'I could not have asked for a better experience.'

I am feeling deep gratitude along with the Philanthropy team for all of the support we have had to get to this point. With the relaunch of Experience Week set to touch many hearts, we know it is because of open-hearted people like you – our supporters and donors – that we are miraculously still here today despite all the devastation of the last few years. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being there with us as we listen to how we can best serve you and the world in these challenging times. Helping to bring more people into the knowingness of who they can be, with greater connection to the divine, themselves and each other.

Many people can’t experience Findhorn in person – some because they can’t afford it – so I’m especially excited about our online workshops and the diversity of what’s being added to our calendar, as well as the relaunch of our subsidised places for onsite programmes. Please keep an eye on our workshops page.

With love,

Caroline Matters, Lead Steward

Experience Findhorn – here or online

If you’ve ever felt the call to visit Findhorn, how about now? Findhorn Experience Week will run roughly every second week through the year.
