In May 2012, 37 people representing 27 centres in 16 countries on five continents gathered together at the Findhorn Foundation in Scotland for the International Holistic Centres Gathering. Together we explored our unity in diversity, shared about our work and service in the world, exchanged ideas, challenges and experience. It was a time of learning from one another, in the spirit of supporting the planetary transformation that is unfolding in the world.
It’s now only two months until the International Holistic Centres Gathering – The Network of Light – an occasion when many different centres, often from different cultures, speak openly, honestly and warmly of their experiences, lessons, hopes and concerns. In this way, we deepen our sense of the worldwide movement towards holistic, spiritual and ecological awakening, and find inspiration and community in the often hard won wisdom of others.
Invitations have been sent far and wide and we now have participants coming from communities and holistic centres in the USA, (including Hawaii, California, Oregon, Washington and New York), Canada, Spain, Greece, Denmark, Poland, Russia and India. They represent a diverse range of spiritual traditions, business models and environments, one a remote retreat centre, another completely off the grid, and a third located in one of the busiest cities in the world!

Many intentional communities share the aspiration of creating a more positive future through a spiritual approach to everyday life, and by exploring more sustainable ways of living based on higher levels of human consciousness.
By making it possible for members of communities to visit each other and experience different cultures in an environment conducive to learning, exchanging ideas, personal growth and nourishing personal connections, greater understanding and appreciation of our unity in diversity can develop.
In the spirit of the Network of Light, strengthening connections between communities, the Findhorn Foundation has established community exchange agreements with the like-minded communities listed below and your community is invited to join this exchange!
