East Coast Tour 2014
Dear Friends,

Next week, we are embarking on our second East Coast Tour, with the intent to reach as many new audiences as possible, and to connect with old friends and new. The tour will include visits to New York City, Middletown & Catskills NY, Marblehead & Northampton Massachusetts, Washington DC, and Naples & Tallahassee Florida.

Amanda Lezra will be facilitating Think on These Things discussion programs in classrooms in several universities, including Orange County Community College, University of Massachusetts Medical School, and the University of the District of Columbia. I will be conducting workshops and presentations exploring the themes of The Ending of Psychological Time and Unconditioning Through Education. These sessions intend to explore core issues within Krishnamurti's work, and are geared toward those eager to inquire into fundamental questions in an open atmosphere. For more program details and to reserve a seat, please visit

We are excited to announce that we have begun the construction of our gazebo. This will be a space in which we will conduct programs exploring key themes Krishnamurti pointed towards, as well as inviting other teachers and facilitators to utilize this beautiful space to hold diverse workshops and events. We expect that the gazebo will be ready for use in May.

Lastly, we have two exciting events on the horizon. Between February 28th and March 2nd, Rowan Lommel will be facilitating a theme weekend titled "What is the Self?" which will delve into the sense of self that dominates our thinking, examining its roots and the complex structure that comes about, built upon the simple idea of "me." Find more information here.

The 2014 Krishnamurti Spring Study Intensive & Retreat Program is also coming up between April 13th and 20th-a 7-day inquiry-based immersion program for adults and college students. This event will be facilitated by Dr. Satish Telegar and Zeenat Patel. To sign up, please click here.

Get Educated?
Why are We Being Educated
At the risk of being too bold, you should definitely watch this video created by Amanda Lezra. A collage of images in motion overlay Krishnamurti's voice as he explores the purpose of education in our society.

Friday 2/28 - Sunday 3/2
We will explore the sense of self that dominates our thinking. In examining its roots, and the complex structure that stems from them, we may begin to get a sense of this thing we call "me."
