Last September, I was blessed to be part of the Kincentric Leadership Retreat in The Park Ecovillage (Findhorn, Scotland). The retreat was held to explore themes and topics related to embodying kinship with the more than human world.
The experience was beyond words, I left with a deep sense of gratitude and connection with both the human and more-than-human communities of Findhorn and the retreat group.
Below are some sketchy notes that made their ways to written form:
I’m deeply grateful for the organizers and facilitators (Anna, Justine, and Caroline) who held space for us to explore various topics that are dear to my heart; as well as all my fellow human and more-than-human friends that I’ve encountered. Here are some pictures I took during my time in Findhorn:
