We invite you to our Online May Gathering, May 1 and 2, 2021 (California Pacific Time). This event is free of charge.
We have chosen a theme that we feel is extremely relevant in light of all the challenges the world has gone through in 2020 and continue to face in 2021, The Urgency of Change. This is also the title of a book that was published 50 years ago, and the topics it touches upon are as striking now as they were then.
There is this fact of disorder. There is no doubt about it: it is an actual fact. The traditional approach to this fact is to analyze it, to try to discover the cause of it and overcome the cause, or else to invent its opposite and battle towards that. This is the traditional approach with its disciplines, drills, controls, suppressions, sublimations. Man has done this for thousands upon thousands of years; it has led nowhere. Can we abandon this approach completely and look at the problem entirely differently – that is, not try to go beyond it, or to resolve it, or to overcome it, or to escape from it? Can the mind do this? -Krishnamurti, The Urgency of Change
The focus of this Gathering is to have speakers, panels, and dialogues aiming at exploring what this theme means and to look at it in a wide context.
Due to the continued outbreak of the Coronavirus this is now an online event only. This is a Free event but registration is required to get access.
