  • In-Person Weekend Program, Radical Inward Revolution, What is this “radical inward revolution” that Krishnamurti talks about?
    “We need a tremendous amount of energy and we dissipate it through fear but when there is this energy which comes from throwing off every form of fear, that energy itself produces the radical inward revolution.” -Krishnamurti, Friday Jan 14 – Sunday, Jan 16, 2022

  • In-Person Weekend Program, Attachment & Dependence,
    “Can we watch, stay with that fact that we are attached and watch it. And let the attachment, the whole nature of attachment, reveal itself instead of you telling ‘one must be attached, one must not be attached,’ and so on. Can the story of attachment, can it be revealed by observing it. I don’t know how to put it. From which arises fear – I might lose. And from that loss, I feel hurt, broken-hearted, or wounded, jealous, anxiety, the whole nature of attachment. Can you remain, watch that, and let the story involved in that reveal itself?”
    – J. Krishnamurti (Brockwood Park, UK 1978, Seminar 5)

 April/ May/ June

  • In-Person Weekend Program, On Loneliness and Aloneness: A dialogue weekend,  In this dialogue weekend we will share an inquiry into loneliness and aloneness. Together in a shared space, we will look at our own loneliness and where it comes from, and all the ways we escape from it. When we truly get in touch with our sense of isolation, perhaps we might discover what Krishnamurti talks about as aloneness, the realization that we are all one.  Friday, April 1 – Sunday, April 3, 2022
  • Online In-Depth Study Program, Taking the First StepTaking the First Step offers a fresh way to look at ourselves. What is it that constantly reduces our existence in the gamut of tradition? We are a product of tradition, time. However, is there something about us – in us – that we have never questioned or considered looking at? Has that anything to do with taking the first step, which may itself be the very last step? Monday, April 4 – Friday, April 8, 2022
  • In-Person and Online Annual May Gathering, What Are You Looking For?, We invite you to our May Gathering, May 7 and 8, 2022. This event is free of charge and will be held in-person and online at the lovely Oak Grove school campus.  Should the Covid situation worsen it will be online only. Sat, May 7 – Sun, May 8, 2022
  • In-person Explorations into Freedom Intensive Retreat, A 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 judgment or resistance. This dimension of ‘seeing’ and ‘listening’ is like turning a light on our conditioned responses, the normally hidden unconscious layers of thinking. We create an atmosphere together of freedom, affection, and mutual support in order to inquire into what is preventing us from unburdening ourselves from the past and our feelings of psychological limitation. Sunday, June 19 – Sunday, June 26, 2022
  • Online In-Depth Study Program, Loneliness, Facilitated in Spanish.  Program description coming soon Monday, June 20 – Friday, June 24, 2022

    July/ August/ September

  • Online In-Depth Study Program, Meditation and Action, “Meditation is not an achievement, nor is it the capture of a vision, nor the excitement of sensation. It is like the river, not to be tamed, swiftly running and overflowing its banks. It is the music without sound; it cannot be domesticated and made use of. It is the silence in which the observer has ceased from the very beginning.” – Krishnamurti.  Monday, July 18 – Friday, July 22, 2022
  • Online In-Depth Study Program, Relationships, Program description coming soon.  Monday,  August 15 – Friday, August 19, 2022

  • In-person Explorations into Freedom Intensive Retreat, Death and Rebirth Beyond Time, The Explorations into Freedom Intensive Retreat invites us to explore together Krishnamurti’s insights that point to the possibility of a transformation of consciousness. Krishnamurti describes ‘psychological death’ as the falling away of the belief in the ‘me-consciousness’, and ‘rebirth’ as an unburdening of the mind in the timeless present, beyond conflict and fear, and the frustrations of endless seeking. Sunday, October 16 – Sunday, October 23, 2022
