Attend Mac’s new course at Findhorn, The Children’s Fire: Ancient wisdom fuels a new story. 21-27 April 2018. See more details below.

On a moonlit night in the winter of 1984 the story of the Children’s Fire was passed on to Mac Macartney by his indigenous mentors. Mac pledged to share the wisdom and insight it holds. He has since inspired thousands of people across the world with this simple and profound knowledge.

The teachings of the Children’s Fire imagine a society where no law, no decision, no action of any kind will be permitted that will harm the children for seven generations to come. It is a mind-set, culture, philosophy and design principle that can and must be observable within the DNA of everything – politics, religion, art, business, education, health services, economics and our daily lives. It is a pledge to life, a commitment to the responsibility carried by each successive generation to those who will come after us. It is a sustainable future.

During this progamme you will gain a lived experience of what might be achieved were we to re-ignite the Children’s Fire and commit to its care as individuals, as communities, as organisations and as a society.

The content of this programme and your ‘lived experience’ will be further strengthened by the setting – the amazing 55-year-old Findhorn Foundation and Community, an international ecovillage and spiritual learning centre. This research and development centre for the future of the world is dedicated to living and demonstrating a regenerative future for at least seven generations. The environment of beach, bay, dunes, forest, meditation sanctuaries, eco-buildings, organic gardens, social enterprises and inspired people naturally supports The Children’s Fire.

The programme will enquire into three questions to point the way:

  • What is it that you most deeply and profoundly love?
  • What are your greatest gifts?
  • What are your responsibilities?

Knowing this, we move to action.

This programme invites you to a lifetime journey of deepening alignment with nature, yourself and each other. It points the way and sets a challenge. It invites you to walk in beauty, participate generously, appreciate the inner journey and empower its outer expression in your day-to-day life.

The Children’s Fire is a flame at the centre of a council of chiefs – leaders like you. People who would act on behalf of all life. With their positions come great responsibility, courage and awareness. Around the council circle are places where the chiefs are invited to sit. Many seats remain vacant. One of them is yours…
