Rhonda Fabian, writer, filmmaker, and mindfulness advocate, shares her story one year on from Findhorn's New Story Summit.... Nature speaks at Findhorn – if one listens – and not in some airy or theoretical way, but directly, clearly, and intimately.

October 2015 marked one year since the New Story Summit and we invited summiteers to share their personal account of how the new story has unfolded in their lives, in their work, and in their relationship with the planet and humanity.
