Workshop/Retreat in August 2018, at Study Centre
The Krishnamurti Study Center, Sahyadri is pleased to announce a retreat/workshop for all adults, especially parents, educators and teachers for exploring questions of learning in the whole of life and education, based on Teachings of Shri Jiddu Krishnamurti.
Details are given below:
- Theme : Living without Fear and Comparison: A Study in Learning
- "Fear is what prevents the flowering of the mind, the flowering of goodness. Most of us learn through fear. Fear is the essence of authority and obedience; parents and governments demand obedience...
Most people think that learning is encouraged through comparison, whereas the contrary is the fact. Comparison brings about frustration and merely encourages envy, which is called competition. Like other forms of persuasion, comparison prevents learning and breeds fear...
Fear is essentially involved in competition. Whether it is competition in a class or competition in life. To be afraid of being nobody, of not arriving, of not succeeding, is at the root of competition. But when there is fear, you cease to learn...
You learn most when you have no fear, when you are not threatened by authority, when you are not competing with your neighbour..."
(from 'Krishnamurti on Education', Chapter 6 and 'Life Ahead' Part 1, Chapter 2).
"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:
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.
