1. The Findhorn Foundation is a spiritual community that serves as a centre of transformational learning within an ecovillage. While we offer a caring and conscious environment, we are not a healing or therapy centre. We are also not a retreat centre in the traditional sense, though we do offer retreat weeks. The Foundation is a working community created by staff and co-workers who welcome guests to share in our way of living.

Programme participants are responsible for maintaining their own wellbeing and agree to not take any illegal drugs and will not abuse legal drugs or alcohol while attending this online programme.

4. Tiered Pricing
Our quoted prices are for the full cost of the programme.Before you book your place, please take a moment to consider that the Findhorn Foundation is a Charitable Trust. We believe that the benefits of holistic learning should be available to everyone regardless of their financial or life situation, and that the transformational journey is enriched by a diversity of participants.
We recognise that what is affordable for some can be a financial stretch for others and offer a tiered pricing structure. When you book, please select the price that feels appropriate for you.
If you have to cancel a programme:
There is a £95 non-refundable registration fee included in my payment. If you cancel 2 weeks or more before the programme start date, you will receive a refund of 50% of your payment, minus the non-refundable registration fee.
If you cancel within one week of the start of the programme, there is no refund.
If we have to cancel a programme:
Sometimes we have to cancel workshops due to unforeseen circumstances or low numbers. We will do our best to notify you of this two weeks before the start date of your programme.
Hopefully you would find another workshop running at the same time that you would like to attend. We would then apportion your payment to the new programme.
If you would prefer a refund, we will refund the full amount that you paid including the registration fee
