Two years ago we welcomed five new interns to begin the new year-long student intern program here at the KFA. Since then we have had ten interns, who have both helped to develop the program and flourished within it. This fall we have space for four new interns to come and enjoy the program.
The intern program at the Krishnamurti Educational Center is a unique opportunity in that it is a living and evolving community. The intention of the one-year program is above all, to allow for open exploration of all aspects of one's life, with the ongoing potential of gaining insight into the nature of one's life, the world, and the activity of human relationship.
Please help us get the word out about this very unique opportunity, so that anyone who may be interested will have the chance to apply. Our new interns will begin November 1 at the foundation. Information can be found at kfa.org/intern-program. We also have a handout if you know of a community board that may be perfect for posting. Thank you for your support.
Also, the Yoga & Inquiry program is coming up September 3 - 7 (Wednesday - Sunday). If you are interested in joining, click here to see more details about the program and apply.
By now you've probably received the Fall 2014 Foundation Focus. There is one error: the very last event on the calendar spread is the Annual May Gathering, and it says that there is a program fee. This was a mistake. The May Gathering will continue to be free in 2015.
"Now where do we begin to understand ourselves? Here am I, and how am I to study myself, observe myself, see what is actually taking place inside myself? I can observe myself only in relationship because all life is relationship. It is no use sitting in a corner meditating about myself. I cannot exist by myself. I exist only in relationship to people, things and ideas, and in studying my relationship to outward things and people, as well as to inward things, I begin to understand myself. Every other form of understanding is merely an abstraction and I cannot study myself in abstraction; I am not an abstract entity; therefore I have to study myself in actuality."
-J. Krishnamurti, Freedom From the Known
