Residential Self Inquiry Retreats in different locations around the world
Retreats for Fundamental Change
Can we cultivate a completely new mind rather than a conditioned one?
Is the mind sensitive to the movements of its own thinking & emotions, or blindly dictated by them?
Is there an active and spontaneous learning about life as it transpires? Or are we locked into responding with - and endlessly repeating - what we already know?
Held in a variety of beautiful places worldwide, these study retreats allow a while away from the grip of everyday life & relationship: a favorable atmosphere for deeper questioning & affectionate, sensitive inquiry between friends.
Nobody can give you the key except yourself
"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."
Retreat & Dialogue Facilitator
The facilitator is in no way an authority or KRISHNAMURTI teacher. She speaks in her own name and moves together with all other participants on a journey of self inquiry. She may help organise retreat programs, but truth and awareness can never be organised, nor administered by another: it can only be discovered simply and naturally for oneself.
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.
