Filled with the spirit of Findhorn, we have been creating a book with beautiful images, inspiring interviews and stories as well as previously unpublished archive material from the early years. One lasting memento of our journey from one trailer in a corner of a cold caravan park to a world-renowned eco-village, and beyond. A community book, to celebrate 50 years and the Spirit of the Future.
Stories and photos, CDs and lots of emails have been floating in from our community and from all over the world to fill the book.
We had received several sponsoring contributions from the Findhorn Wind Park, the Hygea Foundation in the USA and individual sponsors.
Content book: The book starts with the three ‘foundations’ of the community, as the thread of the book:
– Spirituality / Be still and listen (Eileen’s line)
– Work is Love in Action (Peter’s line)
– Co-creation with the Intelligence of Nature (Dorothy’s line)
After this a row of themes follow, like Gardens, Arrivals & Outreach, Education, Arts, Dance & Music, The People and The Future. It has a book and periodical list, as well as a timeline from 1962 until now. The content gives an interesting insight in the Findhorn Foundation Community, from the start in 1962 into the future; reflecting our growth in those 50 years from family-group-community towards village-town-city. Wonderful contributions, historical, personal in text and in image. It has been a rich experience to work on our community history!
This is a self-publishing community book, with contributions from current and former community members. The communitys and all ex/re-members involvement through photos, stories, information, proofreading and purchase has been very much appreciated. The colourful book has 144 pages, 21 x 28.5 cm landscape size and has been print-produced by our local eco-printer on eco-friendly but high quality paper. This will be a must have for Findhorns world-wide family.

Some of the many received feedback on the Findhorn Birthday Book:
“I just received a copy of the Findhorn Birthday book that I ordered and it’s really fantastic–the beautiful photos, the historical overview and especially the inspiring update on the many aspects of the community over the years. It’s a real family album! If you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend you get a copy and share it widely–so many memories and so many new insights too!”
