Retreat weeks


Postponed for now

Immerse yourself in the unspoilt wilderness of this truly stunning Hebridean island.  The week will focus on supported practice within a like-minded group of people. Communicate with animals remotely as well as with the seals, dolphins, eagles, sea birds and other animals on the island.  Join the rhythms of this small community, taking part in community meditations. And apply your interspecies communication skills in the vegetable and herb gardens.

Explore the wild landscape and enjoy healthy vegetarian meals before settling in for an evening in front of the wood fired stove in one of the cottages that will be your home for the week.

Erraid was first occupied by lighthouse builders, including the family of the author Robert Louis Stevenson, who were celebrated lighthouse designers. Life on the island inspired Stevenson to write Kidnapped during his time on Erraid. Lighthouse keepers and their families continued to use the island as their base for many decades. 

In 1978 the island came into private ownership, and since then the Findhorn Foundation community have been the caretakers with a small community living on the island year round.  The island plays host to many weeklong programmes including retreats, Celtic Festival weeks and Love in Action weeks.
