Monthly Dialogue: Looking, Listening, and Shared Inquiry

Krishnamurti video and open dialogue

This program starts with a video of Krishnamurti (approximately one hour), then seeks to explore the topic of the video via the medium of dialogue. With the focus on ‘what is’ rather than on ideas and opinions, the intention is to inquire together in such a way that new insights may occur in relation to fundamental questions of life.

The event is free with a suggested donation of $10 (all proceeds to benefit the KFA).

This program is part of a monthly series.

This morning, if we may, we are going to have a conversation, talk over things together in a form of dialogue, to discuss, not opinions, not some kind of conclusions that you have come to, but rather go into the problems that one has, whether they are superficial or deep, and really see if we cannot radically bring about a psychological revolution in ourselves. I think it would be worthwhile and it would be also both interesting and quite fun if we could do this together.” -J. Krishnamurti

“Dialogue is really aimed at going into the whole thought process and changing the way the thought process occurs collectively. We haven’t really paid much attention to thought as a process. We have engaged in thoughts, but we have only paid attention to the content, not to the process. Why does thought require attention? Everything requires attention, really. If we ran machines without paying attention to them, they would break down. Our thought, too, is a process, and it requires attention, otherwise, it’s going to go wrong.” -David Bohm
