Death & Rebirth beyond Time
A Revolution in Daily Living beyond Conflict and Fear
September 22 to September 24, 2017 (Friday 7 pm – Sunday 4:30 pm)
Please join us for this unique weekend inquiry-based intensive retreat exploring the transformational core teachings of J.Krishnamurti. Through shared dialogue, we will explore together Krishnamurti’s timeless message that it is not necessary for us to postpone our sense of being entirely free and fully alive right here and now, unburdened by the psychological accumulations of the past.
We will explore the deepest implications of what Krishnamurti pointed to as a direct experience of ‘seeing & listening’, a state of perception beyond the limitations of thought and its structures, beyond time, beyond fear and anxiety, and the illusion of a ‘me-centered’ consciousness with its sense of isolation and fear. Let us journey together into what Krishnamurti called ‘the unknown’, a glimpse into total freedom.
Facilitated by Richard Waxberg & Deborah Kerner of the Krishnamurti Foundation of America. Please contact Richard if you have any questions regarding the content and nature of the Weekend Retreat: firstname.lastname@example.org / phone: 805-640-0532.

“Consciousness goes out to receive and in receiving it exists… but to look, to see, to listen, without this consciousness—an outgoing in which there is not receiving, is the total movement of freedom.” J. Krishnamurti
Richard and Deborah regularly facilitate Intensives at the Ojai campus of the KFA in California and currently also in Denmark and Norway.
