An extraordinary 'ordinary mystic'. Also for anyone interested in the Findhorn or back in the day.

If you think you know all about Dorothy and Findhorn, and her worldwide work, you may be quite surprised how much there is to learn. I have enjoyed all her books, they are so readable about the most amazing things. I have learned from her at a workshop and she is wonderful!
I highly recommend this great book.

Remarkable memoir. Beautiful to read her story and be able to take all the untruths, glorified or not, out of her life. She is a truly amazing woman which most all can identify with. This book changed my views on Findhorn and Dorothy G. Maclean, herself, due to all the new age hype that has falsely clouded both for so many years. The world is Blessed with her contributions in this lifetime. You owe it to yourself to know her walk, in her words and not some "delusional know-it-all".

Having been a Dorothy Maclean fan for many years, I was delighted to learn that her full-length autobiography -- five years in the writing -- has now been published.

The story, briefly, is this. Born in Canada, Dorothy trained as a secretary, then went to work for MI6 (the real-life James Bonds) in New York during the war. She traveled to almost every continent in the course of her duties, and after the war she settled in London. In the early 50s, while attending art school, she began to write down inspirational messages. In this she was encouraged by her friend Sheena Govan. Also part of Sheena's circle at that time were Peter Caddy and Eileen Combe.

In the late 50s, Dorothy, Peter, and Eileen spent a couple of years meandering from job to job and place to place before obtaining jobs at a hotel in the north of Scotland. There the three of them worked for five years, receiving divine guidance on how to live their lives, and carrying out spiritual practices as their time allowed in the evenings.

When they lost their jobs, the three moved to a trailer park near the village of Findhorn, not far from the hotel where they had been working. Though confused by the situation, they continued living and meditating together as before. As their sensitivity increased in this isolated location, Dorothy began to connect with nature on an energy level. A garden they had started then flourished as they learned to cooperate with nature, and intrigued visitors began to settle near them, eventually forming a community. Dorothy would remain in the community near Findhorn until 1973, when she joined a group returning to North America. Since then, she has lectured and written on her experiences.

The book fills in the details and lines of connection that are missing from To Hear the Angels Sing. Having spent a week with Dorothy and Freya Secrest at Johnson's Landing, I could hear each sentence in Dorothy's voice. Her sense of humor comes across, too. I particularly laughed at her remark about Peter Caddy at the bottom of page 27, and her account of taking minutes of imaginary board meetings on page 110.

An appendix gives the exercises she includes in her workshop for receiving guidance. At the back of the book are some photographs, many from the 20s and 30s, along with the oil paintings she made of her parents. I can see what she means when she says that, had events turned out differently, she might have established herself as a professional portrait painter. Also included is a scan of the certificate of employment she received from William Stephenson. And, since the book offers encouragement to those wishing to live by guidance, perhaps the last word on Dorothy, Peter, and Eileen ought to go to their former mentor, Sheena Govan: "If you three can make the inner connection to God, anybody can" (p. 111).
What an incredible experience following the spiritual growth of this remarkable woamn.
