The Krishnamurti Foundation of America east coast tour 2013
Our intent is to reach as many people as we can.
Dear Friends,

A few weeks ago we had our two-day Annual Gathering at the Educational Center. The two days were packed with presentations, workshops, and the opportunity to connect with people with a similar interest. Several visitors shared with me that they discovered something new, be it in the field of education, Krishnamurti’s teachings, or about the workings of their own mind.

On June 21 we start the East Coast Tour. Our objective is to draw attention to Krishnamurti’s work on meditation. We hope to see you at one of our events.

Please visit to help us carry on this important work.


“We have to alter the structure of our society, its injustice, its appalling morality, the divisions it has created between man and man, the wars, the utter lack of affection and love that is destroying the world. If your meditation is only a personal matter, a thing which you personally enjoy, then it is not meditation. Meditation implies a complete radical change of the mind and the heart. This is only possible when there is this extraordinary sense of inward silence, and that alone brings about the religious mind. That mind knows what is sacred.” - J.Krishnamurti, Beyond Violence

Krishnamurti and Education Reflections
oak grove school's blog page
Krishnamurti schools look and feel in many ways similar to other alternative educational environments. It is important therefore to define as simply as possible how Krishnamurti's views in general and specifically his approach to education differs from other models.

Looking, Listening, and
Shared Inquiry - June 22
