K has been a guiding influence since my teenage years in Austria and was also the reason for my coming to Victoria in the late 70's, to participate in a school operated here by the Krishnamurti Educational Centre of Canada (KECC).
These days I enjoy organizing and co-hosting a series of retreats and other events at the KECC, located on the beautiful Swanwick Centre near Victoria, B.C. where I am the program manager. Some retreats focus on K's teaching only, while others introduce his teaching in the context of other teachings that also invite open inquiry into the nature of mind, self and truth (see the website above).
With David and others I also host monthly K video showings and dialogues at Swanwick Centre (see Events on the website).

K's teaching provides the foundation for a deep enquiry into the nature of mind, self and truth. I feel that there is also a place for a few contemporary Western teachers aligned with such an enquiry, not dependent on belief or spiritual authority, which may offer additional pointers that can be helpful in making K's teaching more "practical". A place like the KECC offers the opportunity for serious enquiry based on K's teaching while also including contemporary high-quality teachings that are aligned with it and complement it.View all answers to this question
