Findhorn Reflections: A very personal take on living inside the famous spiritual community and ecovillage
by Graham Meltzer
Digital book, 2015; 146 pages
The Findhorn Foundation and Community has been famous since the 1970s for its unique spiritual beliefs and practices, such as co-creation with the intelligence of nature, work is love in action, openhearted relationships and consciousness. Much more recently it has become equally well known as a cutting edge ecovillage, one that produces its own energy, treats its own sewerage, grows its own food and develops sustainable, low-carbon architecture.
Findhorn Reflections is a collection of one member’s personal reflections and observations of life inside this unique intentional community. Graham Meltzer has lived at Findhorn for ten years, having previously spent a lifetime in the communities movement as a resident and researcher. He is passionate about communal living but also brings a dispassionate, analytic eye to his writing. This book is both a ‘love letter’ and a critique – a reflective insider’s perspective on a fascinating social experiment.
