“In the Presence of Krishnamurti: The Memoirs of Mary Zimbalist is the direct result of Krishnamurti asking Mary to write about what it was like to be with him. Mary struggled to write this account for more than two decades. I was concerned that, with her frail health and slow progress, she might not complete this task for which she cared so much.

On Saturday, May 14th, 2011, 22 former students, staff, parents and others came together for the first official Brockwood reunion in Berlin. People travelled from as far as Oldenburg and Prague to be there.
