    As we sit in our final Living Curriculum Session listening to our focalizers Melissa and Andrea fill us in our final wrapping up details; what we need to do to clean up all the spaces, the schedules for the final days, and other small details to ensure that we are all prepared to leave in a week’s time, a feeling of anxiety fills me. It seems in the last few …

    So I had a pretty good day, emotionally: more low key then the other days. We had a lot of talk around power in our lifes and who or what holds the power over ourselves. It's a very interesting thing to think about and I encourage anyone to try doing it, in whatever way you feel. Whether that be through creative expression, movement, journaling, thinking, meditating or my method linear …

        The rain and snow and sleet have come. It makes Findhorn feel like a different place, after one month of clear skies to the stars and sun. A cozier time, inside with blankets and books to read for classes. I had been struggling with schoolwork for a little while.. because our days are so full that I wanted to utilize any free time as self time. But this weekend …

    Erraid Island: A Skinny Dipper’s Paradise. I am sitting alone on top of a high rock overlooking panoramic views of mermaid heaven. There is no horizon, only a misty fading where the ocean supposedly meets the sky, adding to the mysteriousness of this place. With not a soul anywhere in sight, I have utter privacy in the company of the heather, granite, and salt water surrounding me. Contrary …

    We entered a giant gate, tables, and chairs, and pots lay on the sides of the road. Inside the poly-tunnel there wasn’t any plants growing instead there was a luscious garden of old stuff for low prices. We entered a shack and learned about “Waste Busters” the facility that we were at which collects recycling from Moray county and takes peoples cool unwanted junk and sells it.  Day two we basically …

    A week that begins with a free morning can never go wrong. This was proven by the glorious week I had, both inside and outside the classroom. In Worldviews and Consciousness this week we had a guest speaker who presented her views on energy healing and it's relationship to distortion and disease in the body. She took us through the 7 chakras (crown, brow, throat, heart, solar plexus, sacral, and base), …

    Exactly 30 days ago I was eagerly anticipating my morning departure to Findhorn, my stomach bubbling with nerves and excitement.  This evening, I find myself not in Scotland, but Costa Rica, due to an unforeseen turn of events that only until recently have I been able to wrap my mind around.  It’s easy to mull over the dear friends I could have made, the activities I may have partaken in, …

    Today marks my two-week anniversary with Findhorn and I’ve never been so in love. For me, coming to Findhorn felt like I was coming home. I have never physically been here but it definitely feels as though a part of me was already here and we were instantly reunited as soon as I landed in the UK. It’s been an overwhelming two weeks mixed with all different emotions, from the …

    I am here under a cloudy sky  with a warm sun underneath my heart. I scurry to give my regards to everyone I know and to do everything that I have wanted to do...almost like I am about to die. I am about to die! I am ready to leave who I was behind and find who I really am. I know that this experience will change who I am exteriorly but that's not …
