The poster campaign of Krishnamurti quotes on the London Underground began on Monday October 21st 2013, and ran for 2 weeks. Shown here is the “Truth is Pathless Land” one. There was a total of 27 across-track posters up on platforms that had 5 different quotes: “Have a complete break with the past and see what happens.” ; “Education, in the true sense, is the understanding of oneself, for it is within each one of us that the whole existence is gathered” ; “War is the spectacular and bloody projection of our everyday living.” ; “We all want to be famous people, and the moment we want to be something we are no longer free.”
The posters were unattributed, because we wanted people to engage with the ideas before thinking about the person from whom they came. However, as soon as someone visits the website kft.org they saw the quote in the paragraph to which it belongs and there was an introduction to Krishnamurti and his teachings.
We are very pleased to announce that we have reached our goal for the 2013 Annual Appeal. With still two months to go before the deadline, we have already reached our target of £100,000. This means that we will receive an additional £300,000, thanks to a generous donor. We are very grateful for all your support. It means the world to all of us here at Brockwood Park!

A few days ago, two of David and Saral Bohm’s nieces visited Brockwood. Michal Woolfson (in the middle) is a judge in Israel and her sister Helena (on the right) works in London as a Counselor. They met with Bill Taylor and with former Brockwood Academic Director and current teacher Colin Foster (on the left), who was close to David Bohm when he was here. Michal and Helena wanted to see the tree planted in David Bohm’s memory. The tree (in the background) is a sequoia and was planted in the Grove. (Photo by Bill Taylor) — atBrockwood Park.
A week of inquiry and dialogue inspired by the work of J. Krishnamurti. August 12-19, Bourg-St-Pierre, Switzerland
Can we be free in this society?
During this week, the intention is to create a space for young people to exchange and raise questions such as:
- Why are we afraid of losing what we have?
- What is success?
- How does freedom impact on our relationships?
- And all the questions that are related to finding a right livelihood, and one’s relationship with human beings, nature and social responsibility.
On Friday 21st June & Saturday 22nd June at 5.30pm.
