The Krishnamurti Centre

Krisnamurti Centre

"if you assert and I assert, if you stick to your opinion, to your dogma, to your knowledge, and I stick to mine, then there can be no real discussion, because neither of us is free to inquire. To discuss is not to share our experiences with each other. There is no sharing at all: there is only the beauty of truth, which neither you nor I can possess. It is simply there."

J. Krishnamurti

Are beliefs necessary?

Friday, 14th December 2018 - Sunday, 16th December 2018 at 3:00pm

‘Belief: an acceptance that something exists or is true, especially one without proof; a firmly held opinion; a religious conviction; trust, faith, or confidence in someone or something.’ The Oxford English dictionary presents a definition of belief to which most of us can relate. Krishnamurti on the other hand stated, ‘Belief is a denial of truth, belief hinders truth; belief divides, it never brings people together.’ In this retreat participants will have the opportunity to reflect on the realm of common beliefs, examining what role they play in life and in the way we understand the world.
