A Taste of Findhorn in Greece with Fabien Barouch and Maria Cooper, 8 – 15 June, €400, (Kissos Campus)
Experience the Magic of the Findhorn Foundation Community in the Warmth and Beauty of Greece
This week is an invitation to open to the magic of community, to sharing and caring for each other and the Earth, embodying the change we want to see happen in the world!
Together we will explore many of the tools used within the Findhorn Community and ecovillage which have helped it survive and thrive since 1962: Sharing, Meditation, Attunement, Connection and Co-creation with Nature, Permaculture and Ecovillage design, and expressing ‘Love in Action’ through service in the kitchen and garden.
There is a wealth of materials and practices to share, and each group is unique, so we will together be able to adapt the programme to suit the needs and interests of the group.
Exploring community inevitably means deepening self – and this week is also about relaxing into a deeper connection with yourself and your place in life, through solo time and through building group consciousness.
We will get the opportunity in this week, to work with these and other spiritually-based concepts developed at the Findhorn ecovillage, in particular through the core Findhorn experience weeks.. Daily sharing circles will be one of our main tools for building group consciousness.
There will be dance, song and visits to beautiful nature spots, as well as beach time, and relaxing in the crystal-clear waters of the Aegean Sea.
We will also have an opportunity to eat out in a traditional Greek taverna and have moments of celebration with villagers from Kissos, possibly dancing with them on the Village square as often happens here.
The flow of a typical day
Afternoon: Going to the beach, followed by service in the kitchen or garden

More about the Findhorn Community
Beginning in 1962, Findhorn Foundation and community has evolved from a small group of dedicated pioneers who sought to align themselves with the creative and benevolent forces, seen and unseen, that guide the evolution of humanity, and indeed all life. Now, 60 years on, the community is a founder member of the ecovillage movement, and host to over 800 members and associates living in and around the community. In those years Findhorn has developed a number of unique processes for developing group consciousness, including attunement through guided meditations, focalisation, a way of bringing energies together for a task, and emphasizing that ordinary work can be love in action.
