Workshop/Retreat in March 2018, at Study Centre

The Krishnamurti Study Center, Sahyadri is pleased to announce a retreat/workshop for exploring what it means to be educated rightly and the significance of right education in life.
This retreat/workshop is open to all adults, who are especially interested in education and exploring the teachings of Shri Jiddu Krishnamurti in this regard.
Details are given below:

  • Theme : Education and the Significance of Life

  • Education is not merely a matter of training the mind. Training makes for efficiency, but it does not bring about completeness. A mind that has merely been trained is the continuation of the past, and such a mind can never discover the new. That is why, to find out what is right education, we will have to inquire into the whole significance of living.
    (From Page 6, Education and the Significance of Life by Shri J Krishnamurti).

    The right kind of education, while encouraging the learning of a technique, should accomplish something which is of far greater importance: it should help experience the integrated process of life.
    (From Page 11/12, Education and the Significance of Life by Shri J Krishnamurti).

  • 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 close to 10 adults. 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.
