A beautiful, perfectly formed pause in the hustle of life. I came away energised, inspired, and resolved to do more for the environment.
A deeply relaxing short break to refresh mind, body and soul. No crowds or traffic noise, just open spaces, unspoilt nature and the sounds of birdsong. Our aim is to provide the most nurturing ‘home from home’ environment possible, where you can truly escape the stresses and strains of daily life and renew yourself.
Our expert retreat coordinator and in house wildlife experts will work with you to organise a tailored experience to deeply connect you with nature, both inner and outer.
Nature walks: around our grounds and out into the adjacent woodland and wetlands with one of our experienced leaders, Deborah, Dan or Manja. Learn what the birds are saying to each other and which plants have been used over the years for sustenance and health
Quiet journaling, nature-art, an in-house Esalen massage with our therapist Heather or we can arrange a variety of holistic therapies and healing sessions with other local practitioners.
A visit to the local bay, seal colony and ecovillage: Findhorn ecovillage and community is full of funky eco-houses, craft workshops, an arts centre and great coffee and cake to enjoy. And include a trip out to look for the area’s famous resident dolphin population with marine biologist and Newbold Managing Director, Dr Deborah Benham.
A day at the beautiful Findhorn River: This magical river valley is surrounded by ancient deciduous forest and Scots pine, with lovely paths and swimming holes. Your guide will offer opportunities for led walks or nature-based meditation, or simply wander, write, swim, read or relax. We can also build a little campfire to make some wild tea or ember-baked bread.
