Findhorn Community - Eileen Caddy Founder

The Findhorn Foundation is a Scottish charitable trust registered in 1972, formed by the spiritual community at the Findhorn Ecovillage, one of the largest intentional communities in Britain.[1] It has

been home to thousands of residents from more than 40 countries. The Foundation runs various educational programmes for the Findhorn community; it also houses about 40 community businesses

 like the Findhorn Press, and an alternative medicine centre.

Their Vision

The Findhorn Foundation is a Spiritual Community, Ecovillage and an International Centre for Holistic Education, helping to unfold a new human consciousness and create a positive and sustainable future.


Our community is an experiment in conscious living, a learning centre and an Ecovillage. Based mainly

at The Park, Findhorn and at Cluny Hill in Forres, the community extends to many individuals and organizations within the local area and to the islands of Iona and Erraid on the west coast of Scotland.


Within the Findhorn Ecovillage at The Park, sustainable values are expressed in the built environment with ecological houses, applied technology in the Living Machine waste water treatment facility, the biomass boiler, and electricity-generating wind turbines, as well as the community's social, economic and educational initiatives.



Dorothy Maclean, Eileen Caddy;

at Findhorn, 1988




"We gladly come to draw all of you

into a new vision, for an expanded consciousness is dawning upon all humanity  like the light of the

sunrise falling on closed eyes.
Open your eyes and experience the freedom of joy."

The Findhorn Garden

In the garden we feel that we are

indeed pioneers... we are learning

 the very secrets of creation.





Dorothy Maclean and the Findhorn Community

One Life breathes Oneness.

Dorothy was one of the co-founders of Findhorn Community in northeast Scotland. Dorothy worked in the garden from early morning until dark, now and then meditating and writing down messages.

“The land in the caravan park was sandy and dry but he persevered. Dorothy discovered she was able to intuitively contact the overlighting spirits of plants – which she called angels, and then devas – who gave her instructions on how to make the most of their fledgling garden. She and Peter translated this guidance into action, and with amazing results. From the barren sandy soil of the Findhorn Bay Caravan Park grew huge plants, herbs and flowers of dozens of kinds, most famously the now-legendary 40-pound cabbages. Word spread, horticultural experts came and were stunned, and the garden at Findhorn became famous.”

On 8 May 1963 she was told to feel into the wind. She thought this was a nice excuse to go off and enjoy walks in nature. But soon the garden that she and another co-founder, Peter Caddy, worked on, began to bear strangely large vegetables, for overjoyed nature spirits took part in raising them, she was informed. And also that "The smaller individual nature spirits are under [the] jurisdiction of" "the spirits of clouds, of rain, and of vegetables".

She learnt to seek into the glorious realms of nature, where everything has a soul and intelligence. Now a garden pea said to her once she tuned into it, "You have come straight to my awareness . . . While the vegetable kingdom holds no grudge against those it feeds, man takes what he can as a matter of course, giving no thanks."

She saw she was not communicating with a single vegetable, but with the soul of the whole of the species of that vegetable. As soon as Peter Caddy got to hear this, he made a list of questions she was to ask different vegetable devas (lit. "shining ones", devas, in Sanskrit). There was another founder too, Eileen Caddy, the wife of Peter. Her and Dorothy's inner voice guidance brought them to the location (next to the town's dump) and encouraged them throughout. Dorothy: "We didn't have the slightest idea what we were creating."

Also, Robert Ogilvie Crombie (called "Roc") began to see and talk with "the 'smaller' nature spirits" or 'elementals'" shortly after visiting Findhorn for the first time in 1966 at around the age of 75. The 'larger' nature spirits that Dorothy contacted, stood out as "the architects who have the plan and pattern for Nature", while the elementals were the blue collar workers that did the actual work, they say. Ogilvie never lived at Findhorn, but he had to explain the behavior of mankind and Peter Caddy to the nature spirits there and beg for forgiveness and patience from them, "telling them that the offending people were well-intended, just ignorant. This included preventing a nature spirit strike at Findhorn when Peter cut plants in full bloom. Ogilvie was told flowers should never be cut down while in bloom.

With some people nature spirits will cooperate when invoked, Findhorn teaches, and the results of working with Nature was astounding. Some vegetables were growing to extraordinary sizes - including a 21 kg cabbage! Fruit trees thrived, and many herbs and flowers, and word got around that something very strange was happening. Experts came, and a compost expert and Soil Association member wrote: "...'By their fruits shall ye know them.' The fruits are those I have been looking for."

She was described by a previous mentor as one of "elfin mind" and "shimmering" thoughts. Her first communication at Findhorn came through her favorite vegetable, the garden pea, which Dorothy had connected with on the soul level. She took down notes. One of the results is her book “To hear the Angels Sing”. It contains much substance to ponder.
