Findhorn: A New Age community on the Moray Firth in Scotland established in 1962 by Peter and Eileen Caddy and Dorothy Maclean in a trailer park near the fishing village of Findhorn. Anecdotal accounts of the 1960s and ‘70s told of remarkable gardens producing 40-pound cabbages, 60-pound broccoli plants, 8-foot delphiniums, and roses blooming in nothing but sand and snow. Love and communication with Nature Spirits or "devas" were credited with the horticultural miracles. The community attracted spiritual seekers from all over the world. In the 1980s residents established educational programs and began planning an Eco-Village based on principles of sustainability, renewable energy, and harmony with natural systems. The Findhorn Foundation promotes values of spirituality, ecology, and community summed up by the inspiration, "Work is love in action." According to former Findhorn resident David Spangler, "You are either manufacturing darkness through your own inner states of anxiety and fear and separation, or you are creating light and revelation through your abandonment of those past states and your attunement to new ones."
