The Path of Inspiration
Following Your Creative Calling
Starts March 17th
2-month deep dive into creativity with meditation, nature immersion and supportive community
Our world needs inspired action that comes from a deep place of connection – with ourselves, each other and the web of life. Whatever your inspiration is calling you to explore – an art form, or perhaps a work project or another area of interest – join this small group to stimulate your creative flow!
You’re asked to bring an idea, a creative project large or small to work and play with. Together we will build a container for the sacred alchemy of the creative process to unfold.
On this 2-month journey you will be encouraged to walk your path of inspiration with many resources along the way. You will be supported to tap into your body-mind-heart’s wisdom and find authentic expression for it.
Piano Sound Bath
Saturday 25 March
In person at Findhorn & online live stream
The Piano Sound Bath is an invitation to relax, unwind and just be. Susanne will guide a deep relaxation practice, also known as mindful ‘body scan’, then play beautifully soothing piano music for you. Enjoy being enveloped by the peacefully energising soundscapes while coming home to your body and breathing — an evening of body and soul nourishment.
Susanne’s Sound Bath was a cosy, comforting experience and left me relaxed and serene. Susanne built a lovely sense of connection with the audience, and her sensitive piano playing created a very beautiful atmosphere.

Meditation, Music & More
Monthly online sessions
15 May & 19 June, 7-9pm UK time
With Susanne Olbrich and Joe Holtaway
Are you interested in meditation, wellbeing, relaxation and creative expression? Come join us to explore the rich field of mindfulness and creativity together – everyone welcome!
Sessions include guided mindfulness practices, songs, creative exercises, time for reflection and sharing of experiences and creative work.
Each session starts with mindfulness, helping us to slow down, rest, revive and arrive in the Here & Now. From that place of connection with our body, mind and heart, we embark on creative exercises to tap into playfulness, ease and inspiration. This might include playing with words, visuals or with sound and music. No special training needed, but if you have a creative background that’s very welcome, too!
I’m once again amazed at how a mindfulness practice can unlock creativity in me. Big thanks to all who help create and nourish this space. S.S., San Francisco
I’m so looking forward to your evening. I have tuned out of a lot of Zoom things recently, but this feels one thing I didn’t want to miss! O.B., UK
