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 honest, heartfelt and straightforward.
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 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, 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.
