Study Workshop



The Krishnamurti Study Center, Sahyadri is pleased to announce a retreat/workshop for parents seriously interested in educating their children, not based on a culture of consumerism, but based on a real quality of religion. It is not necessary that the children should be studying or have studied in a Krishnamurti School. Details are given below:

  • Theme : Education Without Fear

  • We shall ask ourselves why and to what purpose we are educating the children and ourselves; we shall inquire into the meaning of existence, into the relationship of the individual to society and so on.
    (from 'Education and Significance of Life', page 79, Chapter 6: Parents and Teachers, by J Kriishnamurti).

  • Material and format:
The material used for the retreat/workshop will be entirely based on the teachings of Shri Jiddu Krishnamurti. The format includes screening of selected videos of talks / dialogues of Krishnamurti, and discussions relevant and related to the theme of the workshop. The agenda for the retreat/workshop will be distributed a few days prior to the workshop, to all the registered participants.

We expect the number of participants to be between 10 and 15 parents. In addition, a few teachers and staff from Sahyadri School may also participate. The programme will consist of video viewing of Krishnamurti's talks, dialogues with facilitators (Vellarkad Viswanadhan and Suresh Manjani) and guests; group discussions of study material which will be distributed along with the agenda; and Nature walks.
