Living without getting hurt - is it possible?

Days to July Workshop

We are hurt in every direction, and when we are hurt we cannot possibly love. - J. Krishnamurti

We welcome your participation at the workshop.


The workshops offers unique opportunity to study the ‘Teachings’ intensively around the selected themes. The participants are not rushed through a chain of activities but have a very relaxed daily routine giving them ample time and leisure to be with themselves, to reflect upon their own lives, to go for long walks, to observe nature and to interact with one another. An atmosphere of enquiry and freedom prevails throughout the workshops.

The programme will be in English and includes silence session, Krishnamurti's video talks, group dialogues, nature walks and self study periods. Selected passages from the works of J. Krishnamurti will be recommended to the participants for the study purpose. 

Individuals are welcome to stay for retreat after each workshop.
