INQUIRY & INNER REVOLUTION

“Learn to observe not memorise. We have contradiction only when we are not dealing with what is actually going on” JK


The inquiry is for all those interested in a fundamentally new mind and a completely different way of living. 

This exploration however, is not primarily concerned with developing new techniques for my particular well being or self development. Do I care about my own self improvement, or am I concerned for the potential of life itself?

The intention of this inquiry is to allow a subtle, dynamic process of learning to unfold - a learning about who and what we are as human beings. A learning that comes spontaneously with listening, observation and fresh thinking. 

Or do we just want to learn more of the same?

In these modern times where change and intelligence seem so desperately needed, is there an inquiry that can generate an “inner revolution” in us? 


Inward Revolution

“ What is true can only be found from moment to moment, it is not a continuity, but the mind which wants to discover it, being itself the product of time, can only function in the field of time; therefore it is incapable of finding what is true...

To understand the mind you cannot interpret it according to somebody else's idea, but you must observe how your own total mind works. When you know the whole process of it, how it reasons, its desires, motives, ambitions, pursuits, its envy, greed and fear; then the mind can go beyond itself, and when it does there is the discovery of something totally new.

That quality of newness gives an extraordinary passion, a tremendous enthusiasm which brings about a deep inward revolution: and it is this inward revolution which alone can transform the world not any political or economic system.” 

J. Krishnamurti, The Book of Life

NO BELIEF, CULT or GURU

Inspired but not led by Krishnamurti’s teachings

Krishnamurti explicitly and repeatedly expressed that he did not wish any cult or following of himself or his words. 

He made it clear that following the teacher or the teachings would make real learning impossible. 

The Teachings may have an impact: to destroy this impact is to rephrase, intellectualise, idealise or follow.

Surely we must discover directly for ourselves the nature of who we are?  

WHAT IS GROUP DIALOGUE?

Generating energy for fundamental change

Inspired, but not led, by the revolutionary teaching of J.Krishnamurti, this form of dialogue is open and welcoming to all those interested in learning about themselves, their ways of thinking and the impact this is having on the world in general.

Lack of awareness about our fears, desires, attachments and loneliness etc - conscious or otherwise - is limiting our very perception and outlook on life. We will be investigating ordinary patterns of conditioned thinking - not as an intellectual activity but as an animate process affecting us directly - and seriously examining whether it is possible to actually and fundamentally change.
