  • She obtained a 3-year Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Western Ontario. From 1941 onwards she worked for the British Security Coordination in New York City. After being posted to Panama, she met and married John Wood, though the couple would divorce in 1951. On her way to New York City in 1941, Maclean had met Sheena Govan, and it was through Sheena Govan that she would later meet Peter Caddy. Living in England in the 1950s, Dorothy Maclean became involved in the spiritual practices of Sheena Govan and Peter and eventually Eileen Caddy. When the Caddys were appointed to manage a hotel in Scotland, Maclean joined them as the hotel's secretary. After the Caddys became unemployed in 1962 they moved into a travel trailer near the village of Findhorn. In 1963 an annex was built so that Dorothy Maclean could continue to work with them. A community eventually grew up around the Caddys and Dorothy Maclean, and this community has since 1972 been known as the Findhorn Foundation. Maclean is known for her work with devas, the intelligences overseeing the natural world. Her book To Hear the Angels Sing gives an overview of this work and also provides autobiographical materials. A full-length biography, Memoirs of an Ordinary Mystic was published in 2010. Dorothy Maclean left Findhorn in 1973 and subsequently founded an educational organization in North America with David Spangler. Her childhood home, Woodside, at 40 Spring Street, Guelph has since been designated a heritage property under the Ontario Heritage Act. Dorothy retired from public life in 2010 and is now living again at Findhorn. Dorothy turned 92 years old during Findhorn Foundation's 50 Year Anniversary celebration in 2012. (en)
  • Dorothy Maclean (Guelph, Ontário, 1920) é uma escritora e educadora do Canadá em assuntos espirituais, sendo um dos três elementos fundadores da Findhorn Foundation, no norte da Escócia. Obteve um bacharelato, de três anos, em Artes (BA) na Universidade de Western Ontario. A partir de 1941 trabalhou para os Serviços Secretos Britânicos (MI6) em Nova Iorque. Esteve, ainda em serviço, no Panamá. De regresso a Nova Iorque conheceu Sheena Govan, e foi através dela que, posteriormente, conheceu Peter Caddy. Vivendo, já, em Inglaterra, nos anos 50, Dorothy integrou-se nas práticas espirituais de Sheena, Peter e, eventualmente, Eileen Caddy. Quando o casal Peter e Eileen foram sugeridos para gerir o Hotel Cluny Hill, na Escócia, Dorothy juntou-se-lhes como secretária da unidade hoteleira. Após Peter e Eileen terem ficado desempregados, em 1962, mudaram-se para um parque de caravanas próximo de Findhorn no norte da Escócia. Em 1963 construíram um anexo e Dorothy pôde continuar a trabalhar com eles. Ao redor de Peter, Eileen e Dorothy foi crescendo uma comunidade, que desde 1972 é conhecida como Findhorn Foundation. Dorothy é conhecida pelo seu trabalho com devas. O seu livro To Hear the Angels Sing dá-nos uma perspectiva sobre esse trabalho, proporcionando, também, material auto-biográfico. Dorothy deixou a Fundação em 1973, tendo fundado nos Estados Unidos uma organização educativa, juntamente com David Spangler. (pt)
