Banyen's Description: 

This 2008 edition of The Findhorn Garden Story includes the text of the original 1976 edition, with the addition of a new chapter which aims to give an idea of more recent developments within the Findhorn Community, together with a perspective on how the
FindhornGarden experience relates to parallel developments in the wider world.

Growing public awareness of human impact on the environment makes this book perhaps even more relevant than when it first appeared 32 years ago. We offer it in the trust that it will continue to inspire people to work in cooperation with nature.

Newly updated with colour photos revealing the magic, this spiritual classic presents the history and philosophy of
Scotland
’s Findhorn Community. Findhorn was founded in 1963 in far northeast
Scotland
on windswept and barren sand dunes that happened to sprout a miraculous garden. Plants, flowers, trees, and organic vegetables of enormous sizes began to grow in a small plot around the 30-foot caravan trailer inhabited by three adults and three children living on meager unemployment benefits. Guidance by God and absolute faith in the art of manifestation led the occupants to this unlikely locale to create a magnetic center that would draw people from all over the world. Their discovery of how to contact and cooperate with the nature spirits and devas that made the garden possible sparked a phenomenon that continues today, as Findhorn has grown into a thriving village housing hundreds of people from all over the world and an internationally recognized spiritual-learning center surrounded by innovative and ecological businesses.

The garden has expanded and spawned a huge organic farming initiative feeding hundreds of people. And all this because of the commitment and dedication of those three founders, Eileen and Peter Caddy and Dorothy Maclean.

The Findhorn Community is a living demonstration of what can come about when man cooperates with nature and the beings of higher worlds; when people are united by a common goal based on social, spiritual and ecological values. This is co-creation at its finest.

The Findhorn garden is where it all started and this book beautifully explores the garden’s relationships with angelic realms and devas which first gained the community international recognition, while also looking at the wider work of the community and its huge impact upon all who visit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Publisher’s Description: 

Newly updated to showcase color photographs, this spiritual classic presents the history and philosophy of Scotlands Findhorn Community. Findhorn was founded more than 40 years ago in far northeast Scotland on windswept and barren sand dunes that happened to sprout a miraculous garden. Plants, flowers, trees, and organic vegetables of enormous sizes began to grow in a small plot around the 30-foot caravan trailer inhabited by three adults and three children living on meager unemployment benefits. Guidance by God and absolute faith in the art of manifestation led the occupants to this unlikely locale to create a magnetic center that would draw people from all over the world. Their discovery of how to contact and cooperate with the nature spirits and devas that made the garden possible sparked a phenomenon that continues today, as Findhorn has grown into a thriving village housing hundreds of people from all over the world and an internationally recognized spiritual-learning center.

Over 40 years ago, among barren, windswept sand dunes on Scotlands northeastern coast, a miracle occurred. Wonderful flowers, trees, and organic vegetables were growing to enormous sizes in a garden plot around a small trailer where three adults and three children were living on an 8 weekly unemployment benefit. The marvels of the Findhorn garden were celebrated in the original black-and-white edition of this book. Now a brand new edition with color photographs and a new chapter brings the story up to date. 208 pp.
