Dear Friends, 
We are experiencing a very hot summer in Ojai this year. Even some of the native oaks are showing signs of exhaustion. In the midst of the heat, the work continues.

At the Educational Center we started a new year of our Intern program. For a year the students will be living in a communal setting while studying Krishnamurti's teachings and how they relate to their lives. For January we have a few openings left and we especially invite women to apply to maintain a gender balance.

The school year has started and the campus of the Oak Grove School is filled with children excited about the year to come.

Our theme weekends continue on a regular basis, for those who want to retreat for a weekend and in a leisurely way explore Krishnamurti's teachings with others. See our calendar for upcoming events.

"So I say relationship is the most essential thing in life and I see any image formed prevents that relationship, and therefore relationship being much more important, the image becomes unimportant. Therefore, though my nerves react, the brain remembers, the image won't be formed because the other thing is far more important. You get what I am talking about? Do you see?" 
—J.Krishnamurti, Beginnings of Learning, October 7, 1971
