Workshop/Retreat in Jan 2018, at Study Centre

The Krishnamurti Study Center, Sahyadri is pleased to announce a retreat/workshop for exploring issues and questions of freedom in the whole of life at all levels.
This retreat/workshop is open to all adults who are not parents of Sahyadri School students. A separate workshop will be held for the parents of Sahyadri School.
Details are given below:

  • Theme : Freedom from the Known

  • What takes place when there is the ending of 'me', the known, and when there is freedom from the known? Is that ever possible? It is only possible when the mind has understood and put everything in its right place so there is no conflict. When there is freedom from this known, what is there? Do you understand my question?
    (from the third public talk at Brockwood park, September 1978, by J Krishnamurti)

    To come upon truth, the mind must be completely free, without a spot of distortion.
    (from 'Freedom from the Known' by J Krishnamurti; Chapter 8, page 96)

  • Material and format:
The material used for the retreat/workshop will be entirely based on the teachings of Shri Jiddu Krishnamurti.
