I was beyond excited when Eben Alexander and I were invited to present at Findhorn Foundation for the "We Do Not Die" conference addressing the after life in 2015. I had long been curious about Findhorn Foundation (a spiritual community in northern Scotland) as a setting for experiments involving co-creation with nature. By consciously working in tandem with the intelligence of nature, plants grew with impossible abundance in poor conditions.
As we discuss in our book Living in a Mindful Universe, science confirms that our surrounding world is conscious and alive and we make contact with it by going within to listen to the still voice inside – our inner observer. That internal voice is connected with the vast network of all other consciousness, ultimately one collective mind of which we are all a part.
Thus, it was with great interest to learn about this year's conference at Findhorn Foundation – Co-Creative Spirituality: Shaping Our Future with the Unseen Worlds, held from September 22-28, 2018. What better place for people to learn how to create greater wholeness and connection between humans and nature through partnership with unseen energies.
The conference will venture into topics such as nature partners (plants, animals, elemental and devic intelligences, and other beings around us that have physical counterparts), and subtle partners (members of our planet’s non-physical ecosystems: angelic realms, techno elementals, underbuddies).
There will be a special focus on the Sidhe, the Celtic name for a race of "fair folk" (or Faeries) that ancient Celts believed lived in the hollow hills. Modern day researchers will share their discoveries of contact with the Sidhe including exercises for others to connect.
While we will not be attending, it looks to be an amazing experience for those who can, drawing inspiration from quantum physics, shamanic traditions and Findhorn Foundation's own history of connecting with the consciousness of plants, animals and other energetic beings.
A center for transformational education, they welcome thousands of visitors each year to their beautiful place on our planet. I was not disappointed by the time we spent there and we had our own fascinating and friendly interaction with a lovely bird in the Original Garden at Findhorn Foundation.
Step into a new human identity and move beyond both separation from – and naive obedience to – the unseen worlds.
“Engaging with the conscious dimensions of Nature has the possibility to heal ecological damage; generate creative solutions to ecological, social and political issues; and help create a future where humans can live in full relationship to the conscious, as well as physical, dimensions of our planet.”

Knowing how to maintain a core sense of presence and balance creates a foundation of strength to move from empathy to compassion, and at your finest, altruism, when you take action to help another without concern for yourself.
