Britta Schmitz (PhD) has been part of the Findhorn Foundation for the past eleven years, five of which she spent living and working on the tiny Isle of Erraid on the Scottish west coast. Living so close to the elements has had a big impact on her life and strengthened her connection to the earth and the divine.
She is passionate about creating a supportive environment for participants’ individual transformational journeys, enabling them to find out who they truly are and want to be in this world. For many years she has been part of the team that manages Cullerne, the Foundation’s organic food production garden. A large part of her spiritual path has taken her on a shamanic journey. She is a trained primary school teacher and wrote her PhD thesis in Gender Studies.
