Our Findhorn Foundation & Community History Project – Celebrating 60 years of creating our Community!
The Findhorn Foundation and Community History project is an exciting attempt to capture the story of the Community, from its tiny beginnings to the current complex, interesting Findhorn Foundation, Ecovillage and surrounding Community.
As we enter our 60th year, we are excited to be collecting stories about all aspects of the Community’s History, and we have started a list of Building Blocks to help us organise it. Underpinning it all are personal stories and anecdotes from all members of our Community past and present. We are planning a dedicated Wiki type website that will allow us to capture the whole picture of our Community – past and present.
On one level we will record the story of how things came to pass, from early beginnings to current day: growing from one caravan to the Ecovillage and beyond; building the CC, the Sanctuary, the Universal Hall, acquiring Cluny Hill; Erraid, other physical places that housed various activities over the years; the studios, the Shop, other organisations….. already you can get an idea of the enormity of painting this picture!
Simply realize it takes all sorts to make a world, it takes many organs to make up a body, but all are needed to create the perfect. Therefore I need each one of you as you are doing your part to bring about My Plan. – Eileen Caddy
Underneath it all will sit all your personal histories, experiences, anecdotes; and that is where it gets interesting! How did the Mystery School come about, shape us, and shape the impact of the Findhorn Community upon the world?
We invite you all to contribute your personal stories and anecdotes to inform and enlighten us about the myriad of aspects of this complex, interesting, wonderful community. And soon, an online submission form will be made available, together with guidelines and information about the review and publishing process.
