Inner Traditions/Bear & Company Acquires Findhorn Press / by David Lamb

Inner Traditions/Bear & Company has acquired Findhorn Press, the body/mind/spirit publisher in Scotland with three imprints--Findhorn, Camino Guides and Earthdancer--that publishes books, cards, CDs and DVDs. Camino Guides will continue to be published by Findhorn's former owner Thierry Bogliolo.

Findhorn Press was founded as a branch of the Findhorn Foundation spiritual community and co-founded by Eileen Caddy, whose God Spoke to Me was the publisher's first book. Eventually becoming independent under the direction of Thierry Bogliolo, Findhorn Press has also published works by authors such as Diana Cooper, Carl Greer, Margaret Ann Lembo, Stewart Pearce, Allan Hunter and Jim PathFinder.

Findhorn Press editorial director Sabine Weeke commented: "We are excited about the possibilities this new venture brings to our authors and the press as a whole. Inner Traditions/Bear & Company with their longstanding list and depth of editorial and marketing experience feel like the perfect match and next step in terms of development. We look forward to seeing our respective programs deepen and grow together."

Inner Traditions publisher Ehud C. Sperling said, "In the over 40 years that Inner Traditions and Findhorn Press have been publishing books in the United States and Scotland, respectively, we have been sharing common values and goals. We are delighted to bring Findhorn press and its community of authors and readers into the Inner Traditions family of visionary publishers."

Beginning January 1, all Findhorn Press titles can be ordered from Inner Traditions' distributor, Simon & Schuster. Spring 2018 Findhorn Press titles will be released by Inner Traditions, beginning in March 2018.

Book Advisors represented Thierry Bogliolo and Findhorn Press in this transaction.
