The Findhorn Foundation is a spiritual community, ecovillage and an international centre for holistic learning, helping to unfold a new human consciousness and create a positive and sustainable future.
The Findhorn Foundation community is an experiment in conscious living, a learning centre and an ecovillage. Based mainly at The Park, Findhorn and at Cluny Hill in the nearby town of Forres, the community extends also to individuals, businesses and organisations within a 50-mile radius of The Park and to the islands of Iona and Erraid on the west coast of Scotland.
