Community mourning late founder
Eileen Caddy
Eileen Caddy was one of the founders of the Findhorn Foundation
One of the founders of an international spiritual community and ecovillage near Forres has died.

Eileen Caddy established the Findhorn Foundation with her late husband Peter and Dorothy MacLean in the 1960s.

Mrs Caddy, who was 89 years old, will be cremated later this week and a memorial service will be held in the new year.

The foundation, home to 400 people, is currently one of the UK's largest alternative spiritual communities.

Mari Hollander, former Findhorn Foundation director, said: "She has been a profound inspiration to me in my more than 30 years in this community.

"She will be missed and she will continue to be honoured by all of us for her commitment to serve the highest and the best, and for the 'divinely ordinary' example she has given us."
