Theme Weekend: The Awakening of Intelligence

Friday, March 21 to Sunday, March 23, 2014

Krishnamurti Educational Center
Ojai, California

“When thought sees its own limitation, then is there not an awakening of intelligence which is above and beyond thought?”
– J. Krishnamurti

Theme Weekends are for people eager to inquire into fundamental questions in an atmosphere of togetherness and openness. These events are suitable for those already acquainted with the teachings as well as those fairly new to them. The playing of Krishnamurti video and/or audio recordings will be followed by open dialogue, which often has been found to be helpful in deepening one's understanding of day-to-day issues. The Theme Weekends start on Friday at lunchtime and end after lunch on Sunday.


Program fee: $165
Room fee: $165

The room price is subsidized. The price listed is for shared rooms, and room allocation will be determined by the retreat staff.

Retreat fee includes breakfast; program fee includes lunch and dinner.
