The Krishnamurti Study-Intensive & Retreat Program provides a rare opportunity for an immersive in-depth exploration into the teachings of J. Krishnamurti, within a atmosphere of encouragement, affection and support.

Areas of exploration that our program covers:

  • Impersonal listening
  • The nature of thought & image-making 
  • The effect of belief and conditioning on the mind
  • Becoming and psychological time
  • Looking at and division in the mind 
  • The illusion of separation and how it shapes perception
  • The relationship of fear and security
  • The flowering of insight 
  • Personal problems and the problem solver 
  • Meeting life beyond problems 
  • Aliveness and energy

Come join us for this unique, transformative residential Study-Intensive and Retreat program.

We offer an opportunity to enter into a shared exploration of J.Krishnamurti’s teachings with like-minded people from around the world. There will also be time for quiet walks and meditation. Krishnamurti’s living quarters in Pine Cottage are open as meditation rooms.

 The exquisite beauty of the Ojai valley offers us the perfect space in which to enter into this work together. Inquire with us in this beautiful, peaceful valley where Krishnamurti lived and taught. You will be surrounded by majestic mountains, lush orange and avocado groves, and colorful blooming flowers.



Kathy Franklin and Terry O'ConnorKathy Franklin and Terry O’Connor are psychotherapists who have found Krishnamurti’s teachings invaluable in their work.  They have hosted a monthly dialogue in their home for the past twenty-two years.  They have organized the annual Memorial Day Krishnamurti Dialogue and Gathering  in Maryland since it began in 1995.

"Dialogue is an unfolding flower that has brought beauty and depth to our lives.  Sitting with others in the spirit of inquiry we have discovered the relevance of Krishnamurti’s teachings in our daily lives.  In dialogue we look at the personal in the context of the universal and question the perceived limits of the personal.  In the mirror of relationship we see the self operating in the here and now.  In this honest and affectionate space the unknown may flower."



We are fully aware of the impersonal, institutional approach of most college educational experiences. For many college students there is also a great deal of confusion that arises as a result of the fragmented nature of treating different disciplines as “separate” islands of knowledge, and the insistence that learning is nothing more than memorization. In the Krishnamurti Study-Intensive Program, you will have the opportunity to go very deeply into the core questions that can lead us directly to find out for ourselves how the mind actually works, and what is preventing us from making a leap into another more wholistic dimension of awareness.
