At the heart of perhaps every center in the network is the recognition of the interdependence of all life. We foster connection to self, other, nature and spirit, in an ever evolving relational dance. Connectivity is vital, a powerful antidote to the chaos and crises of these times. Leading scientists recognise large scale shifts in human consciousness are essential. Is our unique role to create safe space for healing, growth and transformation, to be custodians of the earth and inspire others with our place based centers? HCN seeks to link these centers around the world and to connect with other like minded networks. These include the Global Ecovillage Network and Bioneers. Together we can accelerate and amplify the urgency of our work and maximise our collective impact of doing good in the world. [Read more…]
Since the early days of the community, the Findhorn Foundation has been pioneering a new way of living on the earth and linking up with other centres all over the world to form a network of love and light.
Co-founder Peter Caddy said, “It is very much our work to be a point of synthesis, to link centres together to see where we can unite. Each centre has something different that we can learn from, that they can give to us, and we can give to them.”
In this spirit of synthesis the Findhorn Foundation hosted the annual International Holistic Centres Gathering in May 2012, a meeting of peers from around the world who came together to share ideas, experience, hopes and challenges, to learn from and inspire each other, and support the planetary transformation that is unfolding with increasing momentum.
“Scattered around the Earth are untold thousands of individuals, small groups and communities quietly creating a society based upon the unity of the human family and co-creation with the forces of nature. Part of our work at Findhorn is to link with a wide range of these centres, organisations and individuals to reveal an emerging pattern that we call the ‘network of light’.”
Reading these words recently in the Faces of Findhorn, published in 1980, I had a strong feeling this was the voice of my friend Ralph White, who I’d met two years earlier at the Holistic Centres Gathering in Hawaii. I sent him an email and he wrote straight back saying, “Yes, I recognize those words. They’re what I felt all those years ago and they’ve actually been proved true. It’s a wonderful thing!” [Read more…]
The Foundation has created this commemorative 4 GB USB memory stick with photos of Now and Then, Nature, and Community Life. It also has videos, some of Eileen’s guidance, an audio of Peter, a history of key moments and a copy of our 2012 brochure. There is also plenty of room on the stick to store your own files.
All the proceeds from the sales of Memories & Miracles will support the ongoing work of the Foundation enabling us to develop new workshop space, expand our outreach programmes, and continue to increase our sustainability into the next 50 years and beyond.
Next year is an exciting year with many special events planned as part of our birthday celebrations. Please click here to view the full calendar of workshops, programmes and conferences.
If you work in a Holistic Centre and would like to visit the Findhorn Foundation to create your own memories of the community here, we invite you to the International Holistic Centres Gathering – The Network of Light in May 2012.
Happy festive season, and welcome to our 50th birthday year!
