THE RETREATS 

What to expect in a retreat

The residential retreat program is structured to include:

  • group inquiry 
  • individual contemplation & study
  • walks in nature,
  • quiet
  • rest
  • exercise and yoga
  • opportunities for unscheduled dialogue to occur naturally between participants.

Take a fresh look at life

Can we take a fresh look at our lives, question our deeply binding assumptions and potentially generate energy for freedom & fundamental change?

The approach has developed out of a deep interest in J.Krishnamurti’s teachings. 

The intention in these retreats is to think for ourselves, rather than repeat and follow the insights of others.

For inquiry to be worthwhile, it must be embodied and explored as our own.

Possible Themes explored in Study Retreats

Themes inspired by Krishnamurti’s talks 

These are a few of the themes studied and inquired into during the group retreats. The following list links to video extracts of K exploring the following questions. 


K may inspire and even clarify our exploration; however our inquiry must be seen directly for ourselves.

THE FACILITATOR

Retreat & Dialogue Facilitator

Jackie McInley founded and ran an independent Krishnamurti centre called Open Doorin Southern France from 2004 until 2013 – hosting monthly inquiry weekends and annual international gatherings in French and English. She has had a deep interest in K’s teaching for many years and has been facilitating and setting up dialogue groups since 2003.

A higher education language teacher by profession, she now spends her time traveling to various K centres and schools around the world - facilitating dialogue & retreat programs, sharing skills in the schools, and helping out in independent K related projects worldwide.

The facilitator is in no way an authority or teacher of K’s Teaching. She speaks in her own name and moves together with all other participants on the journey of self inquiry. She may help organise retreat programs, but truth and awareness can never be organised, nor administered by another.
