The only thing that stays the same at Findhorn is change. People come here and experience inner changes, their hearts opening, their minds relaxing, their consciousness expanding. The community itself is always changing too, with new management structures, new decision-making procedures, new initiatives moving forward — all the better to reflect the deeper issues and innovative solutions for our times.
After 50 years the Findhorn Community is still committed to serving spirit, with “love in action” being the most widely practised mode of service. How that service is carried out keeps changing and developing over the years. Where once the Findhorn Foundation was known for people talking to nature spirits and growing 40-pound cabbages, it is now known for its community, its holistic learning activities, and its ecovillage. All of these activities are the natural continuation of foundations laid here over the past 50 years.
People from all over the world come to Findhorn for our Experience Weeks and other programmes and events, or as a Short Term Visitor for just a couple of days, and find inspiration to bring spirit more present in their everyday lives. The Findhorn Foundation is now the cornerstone of a wider community of more than 400 people and 35 businesses, working together to create a sustainable lifestyle that reflects the divinity in all life.
