Summer Study Program


In this weekend retreat we will explore the work of Krishnamurti and do yoga in the beautiful hilltop KEC Pavilion. Our exploration of K will center on the themes of observation, listening and perception: What is observation? What does it mean to perceive? It seems that so often habit sets in and we see ourselves and others unconsciously, limited by our prejudices and conditioning. It seems that often we can be unwilling to let go of personal agenda to be truly open to listening to another. In looking at these questions together can we do it with that sense of listening, not only to each other, but also to what the group creates together.

AUGUST 18 - 20, 2017


Observation, Listening and Perception

The weekend schedule will consist of five yoga classes which will be breath-centered and focus on adaptation to the needs of the individual.  We will have an afternoon hike in Horn Canyon and delicious vegetarian meals at the Pepper Tree Retreat.  Come join us in learning about what it means to truly observe others and ourselves, and perhaps in that spirit the boundaries between ourselves and others, internal and external, may fall away...
