Truth is a Pathless Land

“I maintain that Truth is a pathless land, and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever, by any religion, by any sect. That is my point of view, and I adhere to that absolutely and unconditionally. Truth, being limitless, unconditioned, unapproachable by any path whatsoever, cannot be organized; nor should any organization be formed to lead or to coerce people along any particular path.”

— J. Krishnamurti

Welcome to the Krishnamurti Educational Centre of Canada

A Spiritual Retreat Centre In BC

The Krishnamurti Educational Centre of Canada is a spiritual retreat centre located on the outskirts of the city of Victoria in British Columbia, Canada.

KECC’s mandate is to offer a space and programs to study the teachings of J.Krishnamurti and provide opportunities for self-inquiry, self-knowledge and the transformation of human consciousness. To this end it also includes in its programs other, contemporary teachings aligned with such an inquiry that transcends beliefs and religious traditions.

KECC is located at 538 Swanwick Road outside Victoria BC.  The facility offers a meeting room, accommodation, a fully equipped kitchen, a library and other facilities. Enjoy group events and group retreats with local and international teachers and facilitators, as well as personal study sessions,

Guests seeking spiritual, healing and wellness retreats in BC have full use of the beautiful grounds which comprise 32 acres of ocean-front property.  Experience the magnificent views of the Strait of Juan De Fuca and the snow-capped Olympic mountains of Washington State, as well as nature trails that wind their way through meadows, forest and along the scenic coastline.

Taking time out, unwinding and reflecting in the lovely setting of our retreat centre can lead to greater awareness, clarity and inner peace, as many others have discovered.


Our events aim to support self-inquiry, self-awareness and a new consciousness, as advocated by J.Krishnamurti and leading non-dual teachers affected by, and/or aligned with, his foundational teaching.

Group Retreats

Our retreats offer a supportive context for spiritual inquiry, self-awareness and transformative insight, not dependent on any belief or religious traditions.

Study Programs

KECC provides two options for persons interested attaining a deeper understanding of J. Krishnamurti’s teaching.
