This Kripalu-Hollyhock colaboration on Earth Day Apr 22 includes 2 x 2-hour sessions. You’re welcome to join either of the two sessions, or both. A free community tier maximizes access. Although this is a high-value program the team are keen to welcome as many people and voices into the ‘room’ as possible. The more people we have learning decolonizing practices for our spaces and organizations, the more effective we’ll be at addressing the climate crisis and social inequities - and we don’t want finances to be a barrier to that! Join renowned speakers Karen Mahon Carrington, Melina Laboucan-Massimo, and Nick Demeris in this Liberation Series.
From the eleven months of the pandemic onset in March 2020 to the end of the organization’s fiscal year in January 2021, the Findhorn Foundation’s broad donor base grew nearly 400%, with funders increasing total donations by nearly 1,100%. Other centers may have received increased donations by a greater margin; others may have received less. Nearly all centers are making up for large reductions in other revenues, so there is far more work to do. Join us to explore key fundraising takeaways to be helpful for your fundraising program, with a robust Q&A to help you ensure that your organization can maximize its funding in 2021.
Join fellow members from three networks–Holistic Centers Network, Retreat Center Collaboration, and Advaya–in an introductory webinar designed to help us understand each other’s communities and collaborative efforts. If you’re interested in an inter-generational approach and curious about non-center based transformational initiatives, we invite you to join us. Collaboration opens new possibilities for retreat centers to address challenges and opportunities as a sector, beyond place, and yet rooted in the deep wisdom of our work.
In the early hours of Monday 12 April, residents in the Findhorn Foundation and Community in Scotland woke to the news of fire. Thankfully nobody was hurt and the natural environment is largely intact. The fire brigade arrived on the scene at around 2am. Fire wardens assisted the brigade during the early hours of the morning to keep people safe and to communicate with residents. The community is in transition from preparing to finally welcome back guests, to now grieving the loss of significant buildings in the two separate fires. Please send your love and prayers as they navigate from crisis to opportunity.
This gathering has been INCREDIBLE. As a small center based way out in Yosemite National Park, I really feel folded into the greater network. This feels so vital. Thank you for creating this!Heather Sullivan, Executive Director & Co-Founder, Balanced Rock Foundation
