School for Meditative & Transformative Self-Inquiry
An initiative to learn together what it means to be a conscious and compassionate human being in these critical times...
The root meaning of the word "school" in Greek is "leisure". Deep learning - which is not memorizing - and transformation happens when mind is at peace, when it has space and freedom to "be", to look and listen without any agitation, fear or burden to arrive at a fixed conclusion. The beginning of self-inquiry and transformation is the clear perception of the present reality or 'what is' from a quiet, non-judgmental and non-reactive mind. The deep intention of the School for Self-Inquiry is to facilitate a journey of transformation through discovering the fundamental nature and essence of one's being in this living moment. It is essentially meant for:
- Learning about oneself, about the wholeness, the beauty and the sacredness of life.
- Seeing and unlearning what is false, illusory and non-essential and unburdening or emptying oneself of all self-created illusions and sorrows through direct perception of "what is" in this living moment.
- Awakening the intelligence of a still and compassionate mind which is inherent in each one of us.
The School has no boundaries. It is a dynamic-moving forum of fellow-seekers around the world who are deeply interested in exploring fundamental questions of life and
human consciousness. The basic spirit of the School is to come together
in an affectionate,
trusting, leisurely and meditative space so that there is a natural opening up of fundamental
problems that confront our daily living and work. In order to participate in this self-inquiry
process we do not require a huge amount of knowledge of any teaching or philosophy;
what we need is a simple heart and mind which is open to listening, inquiring
and learning, and not seeking any preconceived specific results. The challenge for all of us is to come together as
beginners and fellow-travellers.

"Transformation is not in the future, can never be in the future. It can only be now, from moment to moment...Seeing the false as the false and the true as the true is transformation, because when you see something very clearly as the truth, that truth liberates." - J. Krishnamurti, The First and Last Freedom
