Krishnamurti & the Art of Awakening
Dialogue Meetings

Event - Krishnamurti Dialogue


Description

We've hosted a dialogue in our home on the Second Sunday of each month since 1992. We used to show a Krishnamurti video before each dialogue but the group came to feel we were making too much of a teacher of K, so we cut that back to four times a year with the result that the dialogues have become more personal, less abstract. We look at the personal in the context of the universal; as K says, to go very far you must begin very near. Most of the people who come are drawn by Krishnamurti, but many are simply interested in nondogmatic spirituality, and most have explored many spiritual paths.

On the video Sundays, the doors open at 9:15 AM, the video shows from 9:30 to 10:30 AM, and we dialogue from 10:30 to 12:30 PM. On the other Sundays the doors open at 9:30 AM and the dialogue goes from 10 AM to 12:30 PM. We usually begin with a silence that may go from 10 minutes to a half hour or more. When the silence is broken by whoever wants to speak we go around the circle and check in with a question or observation or personal sharing. People who don't want to speak just pass. One we have gone around the group is spontaneous. Sometimes someone calls for a second check-in if it is felt we are going too fast or there has been some conflict or simply to give the quiet ones a chance to be heard. We don't always end at 12:30 but people are free to leave when they want. Coffee and light snacks are provided. There is no charge.
