Inquiry Into Freedom & Fundamental Change

This website diffuses information for a selection of inquiry retreats worldwide.

It wishes to generate attention and energy for the inquiry into freedom & fundamental change, as well as interest for the unique teachings of J.Krishnamurti.

"In oneself lies the whole world and if you know how to look and learn, the door is there and the key is in your hand. Nobody on earth can give you either the key or the door to open, except yourself." J.K

A Light to Oneself

The approach & themes of these retreats have developed out of a serious interest in Krishnamurti’s teachings

However for inquiry to be worthwhile, it must be embodied and explored as our own. The intention is to think for ourselves rather than repeat and follow the insights of others.


Take a fresh look at life

These retreats open an opportunity for inquiry into freedom & fundamental change. Can we develop a learning mind rather than a conditioned one? 

Held in a variety of beautiful places worldwide, themed study retreats offer both a moment away from the grip of everyday life & relationship and a favorable atmosphere for observation, self reflection & affectionate inquiry between friends.

The program is structured to include group study time, walks in naturequiet, rest, exercise, as well as many opportunities for unscheduled exploration to occur naturally between participants.
