Dear Friends,
Last month our sister organization in England launched a campaign to display large posters with Krishnamurti quotes in 27 across-track sites in the London Subway stations. They called the campaign “The Underground Movement.” To read more about it, click here.
Here at the Krishnamurti Educational Center, we have a week-long Study Intensive Retreat coming up that will take place in early January. This retreat will explore the topic “Listening: The First and Last Step to Freedom,” and will be facilitated by Terry O’Connor and Kathy Franklin, both whom have hosted dialogues in Maryland for over 20 years. These programs tend to fill up very early on, so if you’d like to join the dialogue be sure to apply soon.
The last Theme Weekend of the year will take place during the first week of December and is titled Krishnamurti & Buddhism. It will be facilitated by David Skitt, who has a long-standing history with both Krishnamurti and Tibetan Buddhism, and has also been a trustee for the Krishnamurti Foundation Trust.
Lastly, we are in the middle of our Annual Appeal. Your support allows us to continue to do our work. Do donate today!
'The first step is the last step. The first step is to perceive-perceive what you are thinking, perceive your ambition, perceive your anxiety, your loneliness, your despair, this extraordinary sense of sorrow. Perceive it without any condemnation, justification, without wishing it to be different, just perceive it as it is. When you perceive it as it is, then there is a totally different kind of action taking place, and that action is the final action. That is, when you perceive something as being false or as being true, that perception is the final action, which is the final step.'
