Keeping you up to date on what is happening within the community
Welcome to our community!
This site serves the members of the New Findhorn Association (NFA) and others
who wish to feel part of the community near the Findhorn village in Scotland.
This community was founded by Peter and Eileen Caddy and Dorothy Maclean in 1962.
It has grown around the Findhorn Foundation, and comprises
an experiment in conscious living, an education centre and an eco village.
The NFA is an Association of Organisations and Individual Members who subscribe to a set of Core Values.
The main purpose for the NFA is to serve as an umbrella organisation
and to facilitate and encourage development of the community.

Dear Fellow Members of Findhorn’s Beloved Community:
I write to offer an enlivening invitation, and one that – in my humble, but biased opinion – you may not want to miss.
Bioneers is hosting both a live and virtual conference May 13-15, online and in San Francisco. Our team has co-created an offering that is timely, super relevant and creative, nourishing and inspiring.
The virtual event is inexpensive and accessible, and would make a great gift for yourself, your kids or grant partners, and will offer video access to the content for three full weeks afterward, as well as two live Community Conversations and access to several great films. Links on the site can readily guide you to how it works, registration info, etc.
Some of the many speakers I’m especially jazzed about include:
o Angela Glover Blackwell, the brilliant and insightful founder of Policylink, who will also be in conversation with the renowned and luminous john a. powell that Friday afternoon on Othering & Belonging.
o Zainab Salbi, the Iraqi American author and award-winning founder of Women for Women International and host of the podcast Redefined, on Daughters for Earth, which addresses the grossly underfunded and most promising realms of women’s global grassroots leadership for climate justice.
o Ohki Simine Forest, an Indigenous wisdom keeper (and a personal mentor who has taught me so much) on traditional Mayan prophecy and the key role of women now
o Frans de Waal, one of the world’s foremost primatologists, on how his research on gender sheds light on the lives of animals, including human ones
o Clayton Thomas-Müller, a global climate campaigner and organizer and award-winning author on growing up First Nations in urban Canada, and
o Terry Tempest Williams will join Sam Myers on the interdependence of human and planetary health, which promises to be both illuminating and wise.
In case you’re unfamiliar with Bioneers, we communicate, connect and convene people across a wide spectrum of backgrounds, issues and disciplines. We do a kind of social and environmental star search to feature innovators from all walks of life who have demonstrated visionary and practical solutions to many of our most challenging problems, many of them inspired by nature. Our work is deeply informed by the wisdom, voices and worldviews of Indigenous people, which have been central to Bioneers since we started.
So, whatever your particular passion or interest, I hope you’ll review the program, and consider joining us for it, or gifting it to your friends, kids or grant partners. Scholarships are of course available to any who apply.
Warmly, and with devotion, well wishes and appreciation for all you do and are,
