Exploration of the work of KRISHNAMURTI
1st August (Saturday) arrival day – 15th August (Saturday) departure day 2009
above Lauterbrunnen near Interlaken, Switzerland
Reachable by cable car only – altitude 1650 m.
The Krishnamurti gathering will be housed for the third year in hotel Sport Chalet in Murren. The journey to Murren might be challenging for some of us (plane – train – cable car) but in spite of that, we are rewarded by the scenery of glaciers, high mountains, and the silence of this village.
During this gathering, we would like to encourage a “learning together”. Our intention is to create a field in which all of us are both teachers and pupils, allowing one to observe the way we think and feel in our relationships, and permitting ourselves to question our inner resistance. In the last years, the energy in the gathering came in great part from a deep sense of not having to hold on tightly to our personality, and the feeling of trust and togetherness.
In our program, in order to study the teachings, there will be the listening of Krishnamurti’s carefully selected videos, dialogues, panels, and workshop sessions.
