May Gathering 2015: May 2 & 3
Krishnamurti Foundation of America
We Invite You to Join Us...
We invite you to our Annual May Gathering, May 2nd and 3rd, 2015, taking place at the Krishnamurti Educational Center (KEC) in Ojai. Friends both local and from around the world come to listen to speakers, participate in discussions and dialogues, attend workshops, and simply hang out with friends old and new. The event will take place at the KEC campus, Krishnamurti's former home.

Theme: The World Within

This theme directs our attention to the heart of one of the central components to Krishnamurti's teachings - the inquiry into the truth of the divisive nature of the human mind, its impact on relationship, and its relationship to society and the world.   We will be looking together at the activity of human consciousness, the nature of action, and the relationship between the individual and society.

"If we can understand ourselves as we are from moment to moment without the process of accumulation, then we shall see how there comes a tranquility that is not a product of the mind, a tranquility that is neither imagined nor cultivated; and only in that state of tranquility can there be creativeness."

- J. Krishnamurti
