Think on These Things
We are embarking on a two-week tour this June. Our intent is to reach as many people as we can, while presenting two programs. Executive Director Jaap Sluijter will be conducting a workshop titled The Ending of Psychological Time. This workshop is a presentation of core issues within Krishnamurti’s work, geared toward those eager to inquire into fundamental questions in an open atmosphere. Amanda Lezra will be presenting Think on These Things, a discussion-based program geared toward young adults, in which questions regarding who one is, and the emotions and processes that universally connect human beings, are explored and thoroughly examined.

Our Intent: Asking Questions About Oneself
What happens when you ask someone a question that challenges the very perspective from which they think? We ask questions such as, “What is the effect of fear on your mind?” or, “Is it possible to end psychological suffering in your life?”— The purpose of Think on These Things is to extend fundamental questions to young adults and to bring about moments that create the space necessary for a deeper self-inquiry and self-understanding. We have taken the Think on These Things program to several universities and to two high schools—we are aiming to reach a university in every state of the country, and are actively looking for professors who would be interested in hosting us in their classrooms to further this discussion with their students.
Think on These Things functions as a conversation-based program in which we explore challenging topics while filming the discussion. We want to engage the viewer in these questions and create a community of explorers.
Most of the questions are derived from the works of J.Krishnamurti and all revolve around one central question “Is it possible for a human mind to be completely free from its conditioning?”
This initiative is taken by Amanda Lezra from the KFA and an OGS alumni. For further inquiries, please contact her at email@example.com.
