    The Theme: Unconditioning

    In his work, author, educator and philosopher J. Krishnamurti emphasized the necessity to educate the whole human being, and not just the intellect, as a crucial element in the consideration of educational structures, especially given the highly specialized nature of contemporary society. He describes unconditioning as follows: “So that is our main issue: a mind that has been so heavily conditioned for so many centuries, whether it is possible to uncondition itself and not fall into another conditioning; and therefore be free, capable, intensely alive, anew, fresh so that it can meet any problem. As I said, that’s the only question we have to face, and as human beings we have to find the answer.”

     

    ScheduleThe main part of the program takes place on Saturday and Sunday, with lunch provided both days on the KEC campus. The gathering will begin each day with a Krishnamurti audio outside on the lawn at 8:30AM.  Each day ends at approximately 5PM.

    See tentative schedule below.  Check back soon for full program descriptions.
