The Ewe house – Community within community. Located in Kinloss, Morayshire, Scotland. Our roots are from the Findhorn Foundation (check their web page) and we are part of the wider Findhorn community counting more than 400 people from all over the world. It is simply a privilege to live in rural Scotland in the middle of an international community based on deep social values. There is app. 2000 incoming guests a year – generating many opportunities for participating in workshops and activities. Furthermore, we are in the “Kinloss gap”, one of the 3 driest most sunny places in GB. (Not equally happy to have two RAF bases in the vicinity..). The Findhorn Village is an attractive holiday resort worth a visit in itself. We are a 5 acres permaculture based self-sufficiency smallholding, with a large modern 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom house and outbuildings; a venue space and wood-workshop. We have 2 dogs, chickens, some sheep, a fruit orchard, greenhouse and vegetable garden. We define ourselves as a one household, spiritual community sharing the Findhorn Foundation ethos. Our shrine room gives us the space to share 20 minutes of meditation in the mornings, and can serve those that seek  “time out of time”. An art space and a writers retreat are next steps. Are you an emphat, deep thinker and able to cultivate gratitude? Our land and buildings are well suited for work-shops and therapy work if that is your flow. We are open to flexible, humoros, good workers that are open to some self-critizism.
