“That brain can regenerate itself, renew itself, make itself young, fresh, untouched by all the pressures, by the various shocks of modern society and it is one of the major functions of meditation to keep that brain completely whole.” - J. Krishnamurti in India 1974-75
These meditative weekend retreats offer a quiet and healing time to explore some of the most fundamental questions of our daily living. We are going to inquire, listen, observe and meditate as friends in a relaxed, trusting and affectionate atmosphere. The primary intention of these retreats is that our entire day becomes a meditative process by taking a complete break from our daily mechanical way of living and allowing our minds and hearts to deeply rest and rejuvenate.
The daily schedule will include short introductory talks, meditative dialogues, silent observation and listening, long walks in nature and meditation.Mukesh Gupta from Varanasi, India is going to facilitate this retreat. He is an international speaker and regularly facilitates self-inquiry based retreats, workshops and dialogues inspired by the teachings of J. Krishnamurti.
