What to expect in a retreat
Take a fresh look at life
Can we take a fresh look at our lives, question our fixed assumptions and potentially generate energy for freedom & spontaneity?
The approach in these retreats has developed out of a deep interest in J.Krishnamurti’s teachings.
For inquiry to be worthwhile, it must be real, heartfelt and explored as ones 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.
Retreat & Dialogue Facilitator
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.
Jackie McInley founded and ran an independent Krishnamurti centre called Open Door in Southern France from 2004 until 2013 – hosting monthly inquiry weekends and annual international gatherings in French and English.
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 education, and helping out in independent K related projects worldwide.
