"One does not seem to be able to understand how extraordinarily important it is to see what one is, actually, as though one is looking at oneself in a mirror, psychologically; thereby bringing about a transformation in the very structure of oneself.  When one fundamentally, deeply, brings about such a transformation, or mutation, then that mutation affects the whole consciousness of man. This is an absolute fact, a reality.  To bring about a fundamental transformation becomes very important, if one is at all serious, if one is concerned with the world as it is, with all its appalling misery, confusion and uncertainty, with all the divisions of religions and nationalities, with their wars, with their accumulation of armaments, spending enormous sums to prepare for war, to kill people, in the name of nationality and so on and so on." 

- J. Krishnamurti

The following questions will be explored in this workshop: Are we aware that we are fragmented? Does the beginning of fragmentation take place when I am seeking security? Is there really psychological security at all? Can I completely change at the very root? What is correct action in life? How am I not to be I? Why do human beings live the way they do? Do human beings not radically transform themselves because they are afraid to stand completely alone? Can we step out of the stream of this utter confusion, disorder, sorrow, hope, travail and despair? Is thought aware of itself as a movement, which brings about a fragmentary action? Is there such a thing as the unconscious? What is the origin of making images about oneself? If there is no image-making then what is consciousness? What will bring about a radical transformation in the total consciousness of human beings? When there is no movement of thought which is the image-making what then takes place? When there are none of the things that create division what comes into being? What does it mean to love somebody? What is compassion? Is compassion the end of all life, the end of all death? Is there something sacred, untouched by man which is beyond compassion? The book of dialogues between J. Krishnamurti and Prof. David Bohm and Dr. David Shainberg titled: The Transformation of Man will be used as the study material for this workshop. One of the aims of this workshop is to study these dialogues thoroughly. There are seven dialogues in this book which will be studied as one dialogue per day over a period of a week.
