Can K’s teaching really make a difference to our lives and to today’s world?

“To transform the world, we must begin with ourselves; and what is important in beginning with ourselves is the intention. The intention must be to understand ourselves and not to leave it to others to transform themselves or to bring about a modified change through revolution, either of the left or of the right. It is important to understand that this is our responsibility, yours and mine…”  –Krishnamurti

  • This In-Depth Study Intensive offers a complete break with everyday life and routine: a moment of retreat for self inquiry and potential life changing learning.
  • Unstructured mornings providing time for silence, reflection, reading, watching K videos, spontaneous dialogue and simple enjoyment of the surrounding natural beauty. 
  • Contemplation and time alone to walk and/or sit quietly are greatly encouraged.
  • Afternoon sessions providing a forum for dialogue and deep inquiry

Dialogue and deep inquiry
The challenge of dialogue is to open a space for a different kind of dynamic learning to unfold. Together, the circle participates in allowing a process of communication that is less burdened with conventional thought and behaviour patterns and that has the potential for affectionate, careful listening and direct observation. The energy gathered in this process may perhaps open our mind rather than forever fill it with more of the same.
Our inquiry however is not limited to our own self-discovery. In these modern times where change and intelligence seem so desperately needed, can this kind of inquiry create a new way of living and a very different world? 

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. She organized an experimental David Bohm bi-monthly dialogue meeting for 4 years in a local market town, and later a Krishnamurti dialogue group in the city of Toulouse.
A former self-employed, foreign language and theatre teacher by profession (schools, higher education and business), she now organises and facilitates inquiry events, gatherings and retreats in a variety of countries and cultures around the world. She also visits, facilitates dialogues and gives talks in the Krishnamurti Foundations, centres & schools in USA, UK and India. 

Jackie does not follow any particular spiritual teaching but is deeply interested in the investigative talks & dialogues of J.Krishnamurti as a mirror and friend to her own constant inner inquiry.
