Beloveds, I’m taking part in a Kilt Walk to raise funds for the restoration of Findhorn’s beloved Sanctuary and Community Centre, recently destroyed by fire, as many of you will know. Every penny I raise will be topped up by 50% thanks to the generosity of Sir Tom Hunter and The Hunter Foundation. Would you be happy to sponsor me, please? Your gift, small or large, means the world to us, and demonstrates new story gift ecology in action.
Yesterday was Day 1 and included a pilgrimage around The Park campus, followed by a walk to our Cluny campus to spread some of the ashes from the fires at the power point there, connecting our two sites and honouring what has been, whilst opening to what is yet to be. I was profoundly moved by the simplicity of this act of coming together to honour the legacy of our founders, whose shoulders we stand upon, whilst welcoming the emergent future.
Today, we continue with a pilgrimage to the Findhorn River and Randolph’s Leap, which many of you will have visited on your Experience Week, and will remember that this great natural treasure is a place where the veil between the worlds is said to be thin and most conducive to communion with the nature spirits. I’ll be holding you all in my heart as I walk. Better go and get my kilt on now!
If you feel moved to contribute, please just follow this link: https://www.findhorn.org/kilt-walk/. Thanks to many Findhorn friends standing with us in solidarity, who have already given, I’m over half-way to reaching my target and your support will help me to get all the way there! You can donate up until midnight 3 May, UK time.
With love and deep appreciation,
