Beltane: Maypole in the Hinterland
Dear Friends,

We love welcoming so many of you to our transformative experiences both online and here in Scotland. During these times it helps to take the time to pause and rest, ask questions and reflect on life, while deepening our connection to spirituality and nature. Next Tuesday, 12 July, we look forward to welcoming you to our eight-step core essence online programme Creating Findhorn Where You Are.

For those of you who have been waiting to experience Findhorn magic here in Scotland, we are offering two new retreats at Cluny. Cluny Retreat Weeks offer gentle rest and reconnection, while Community of Practice is an opportunity to practice love in action in a service department, for one, two or three weeks at a time.

We are delighted to be hosting Gaia Education and their European partners this week in Cluny as they continue their collaboration on the development of tools, educational platforms and curricula to support the next generation of young pioneers, who are building regenerative futures in the face of climate change. Gaia Education was founded in Findhorn in 2006, and for more than a decade Gaia Education has been working from Scotland to the world.

This weekend we welcome the wonderful energy of participants from all around the world, who are here to enjoy the Festival of Sacred Dance, Music and Song, 9-15 July. If you are in or near The Park, you can join individual sessions of sacred dance, global music, workshops and celebration.

There are many other ways to visit or connect with us – and we love it when you do!

Wishing you a summer filled with relaxation, connection and inspiration. May the light in our hearts nurture hope in all we meet.

With love,

Caroline Matters, Lead Steward
