Event - Can There Be Goodness In Laughter?



Krishnamurti said, ‘If you don’t know how to laugh at yourself you will never be able to laugh at all.’ Echoing this point, he continues: ‘one must be terribly honest, otherwise there's no fun in this. Humour is necessary, to be able to laugh, to find a good joke, to be able to laugh together, not when you are by yourself, but together. And we are asking ourselves what is love.’ Contained in these aphorisms is an important essence of our humanity, one that can be shared and also one, as unexpected and seemingly unconnected like laughter and fun, that can be related to goodness and by association to love. This retreat will enquire into the nature of such a uniquely human attribute, one not so often encountered but nevertheless present within the teachings and questions that Krishnamurti raises.
