Craig Gibsone+Beatriz Gutierrez

Experiential Discussion and play

Craig and Beatriz are members of Findhorn, the pioneer ecocommunity in the north of Scotland and facilitators on topics relating to permaculture and community living. They bring along with them the precious experience that stems from the everyday practice of techniques on social structures, spirituality as well as an accumulated wisdom from daily life at Findhorn, a community that has the lowest recorded ecological footprint for any community in the industrialised world, just half the UK national average. This translates into proven adopted ways of living that guarantee a high quality of life in harmony with the environment.
