Krishnamurti Quotes
Dear Friends,

It has been the primary focus of the Krishnamurti Foundations to provide ample opportunities to interact with Krishnamurti's teachings, including, a database of videos, audios, and texts. Engaging with this work can be challenging and, for the most part, is a solitary task.

The focus of my letter this month is the Krishnamurti Educational Center Programs, where we provide opportunities for dialogue and shared inquiry. These give us a chance to take a break from individual study, sit together and learn from one another as we explore these teachings. We have three week-long programs coming up in the next two months, and each of them have their own unique approach to shared inquiry.
The first is our Teacher Education Program, looking together at what education is, what it can be, how it functions, and what it creates.

In August is the Summer Study-Intensive, where people from around the world meet to deeply study and explore Krishnamurti's teachings together for an entire week.

In September, there will be a new Yoga & Inquiry Retreat. We will be examining Krishnamurti's works through a refreshed lens while engaging the body and attempting to bring the full self into inquiry, exploring the connection between mind, body and life.

Lastly, we will be sending out the next Foundation Focus shortly, so you can expect to see it in your mailbox in August.

 "Truth cannot be accumulated. What is accumulated is always being destroyed; it withers away. Truth can never wither because it can only be found from moment to moment in every thought, in every relationship, in every word, in every gesture, in a smile, in tears. And if you and I can find that and live it -the very living is the finding of it- then we shall not become propagandists; we shall be creative human beings-not perfect human beings, but creative human beings, which is vastly different."  
— J. Krishnamurti, The Book of Life
