A diVision of PET since August 2018, the Caring Community Circle has been around the Findhorn Ecovillage for quite some time.
Caring defines our Community and there has always been a caring community circle in one form or other. First in the Foundation and from 2009 as a volunteer group of the New Findhorn Association. Thus, through a liaison councillor, the NFA has always been part of our work as well as any exploration, planning and decision-making process.
The community is a better place for having embraced the provision of care for the times when people are in need, including the final stages of life. We have the privilege of sharing with each other times when the raw experience of life makes the veils between the worlds thin and we can apply the spiritual principles of this place in an immediate and tremendously rewarding way.
