east coast kfa tour

Dear Friends, 

We just returned from our two week East Coast Tour. During our two week tour through five states we met, in total, with more than 250 people at our presentations of Krishnamurti’s work on meditation. For more information and complementary downloads click here.

In the next weeks, the KEC is fully booked with the Educating the Educator program and the Study Intensive Retreat.

Next month we are, for the first time, having a five day Yoga and Self Knowledge program for those who want to include studying yoga while exploring Krishnamurti’s teachings.  For more information on this Yoga and Self Knowledge program, click here.

yoga and self knowledge - the kfa

"When you do these things regularly, easily, without any effort – yoga means skill in action, it isn’t just doing certain things – the skill in action implies no effort. When you do the exercises with any form of effort involved, that is not yoga. Therefore you do it easily, and the regularity of it depends on the sensitivity of the body. You do it one day, and the next day the body may be tired and you say, all right, I won’t do it. It is not a mechanical regularity. Right sir? All this requires a great deal of intelligence, not only the intelligence of the body, but the mind, the whole thing called mind in which is the brain, and all that, when that is intelligent it will tell you, it will react, tell you what to do, what not to do. " 

- J.Krishnamurti, Saanen 7th PublicTalk 30th July 1970

Best wishes for a good Summer,

What Are the Teachings?
by Michael Mendizza
kfa blog story
He denied methods. The change he encouraged us to discover about ourselves, he claimed, is not dependent on knowledge, time or the authority of another. These are the teachings. What is left? Where does this leave us?
