Kay Kay has collected dozens of stories from people who have influenced or been influence by 50 years of the Internationally renowned Findhorn Community. Among many others, there are contributions from Eileen and Peter Caddy, Dorothy Maclean, Davis Spangler, Dr. Patch Adams and lyrics from Mile Scott. She has also contributed stories of her experiences during the 18 years of living there.
There are deep insights into many facets of life in the Community. The reasons for people being attracted to the place, how they arrive and why they might leave; the individual and collective experiments in styles of living, community engagement, social interaction, finance, education, healthcare, food production, environmental awareness and Eco Village development. Like all fables, these contain many meanings: the appreciation and value of cultural and ethnic diversity; the benefit of agreed principles, ethics and spiritual values in everyday life; the importance of the arts for enrichment; the enjoyment of working, eating, celebrating and making decisions together in mutual support and respect; the beneficial consequences of creating a culture for sustainability, and ways to evaluate and reconstruct social systems and structures when the need arises.
