  • In Depth Study Program, Change That Cannot Be Sought, In these current times, we seem to be surrounded by a world caught in division. And we ourselves may be consumed by innumerable concerns, in which there is little inward space.In seeing all this, there can be a sense of something deeper needed, a vital change in some way. Yet, in our attempts to address this we may find ourselves simply substituting one pattern of living for another, so that pattern-making continues. What is going to bring about a deep inward change, bringing a breath of fresh air and clarity to our living?

July/ August/September

  • In Depth Study ProgramKrishnamurti on Education: To educate the student rightly is to help him to understand the total process of himself; for it is only when there is integration of the mind and heart in everyday action that there can be intelligence and inward transformation.This is a program for educators, parents and individuals interested in what Krishnamurti calls ‘right education’. We will explore the philosophical foundations of Krishnamurti’s approach to education and its application in the classroom. Each session will begin with a reading followed by a dialogue and specific classroom strategies will also be presented and discussed. This online program will be of particular interest to parents who are becoming more involved with their child’s education since the school closures due to Covid-19.
    Online program: August 3 – August 7, 2020
  • Exploration Into FreedomA Glimpse Into Total Freedom: The Explorations into Freedom Intensive Retreat invites us to explore together Krishnamurti’s insights that point to the possibility of a transformation of consciousness.  This explorative journey we take together into our understanding of what Krishnamurti referred to as deep ‘listening and seeing’ is the open door through which unexamined beliefs, concepts and ideas can be revealed without judgement or resistance.
    August 16 – August 23, 2020
    Due to the Coronavirus this program will not take place.
  • In Depth Study ProgramKrishnamurti and His Teachings: What was Krishnamurti talking about? What do his teachings convey? What did he mean when he said that “Truth is a pathless land,”or “The observer is the observed,” or that “You are the world”? We will discuss and understand these concepts during the retreat. The challenge then, will no longer be understanding the message, the tenets of these teachings, rather the challenge will rest in its proper place, where, as Krishnamurti said, “The challenge is you.”
