About This Event

Any movement away from this emptiness is an escape. And this flight away from something, away from 'what is,' is fear. Fear is flight away from something. 'What is' is not the fear; it is the flight which is the fear, and this will drive you mad, not the emptiness itself."  - J. Krishnamurti, The Urgency of Change
In this weekend retreat, we will explore the place of fear in our lives through contact with Krishnamurti's teachings (video, audio, and readings) and dialogue. We will also have regularly scheduled yoga and breathwork practices. This allows us the possibility of coming to a deeper state of relaxation and integration of the inquiry into fear which is beyond  the intellectual. This weekend is intended as a space for an embodied process of exploring fear in our own lives, relationships, and mind.
We will have an afternoon hike in Horn Canyon and delicious vegetarian meals at the Krishnamurti Retreat.

Come join us in learning about what it means to truly observe others and ourselves, and perhaps in that spirit the boundaries between ourselves and others, internal and external, may fall away...
