People and Moments in Brockwood’s History

Meeting in the Assembly Hall

Dear Alumni,

Looking through some old archived photos, I wanted to share these with you. Have a look at some moments from Brockwoods history, perhaps at the beautiful faces of friends whom you knew. Can you remember the names of everyone in the photo…what year was it… do you recall any anecdotes from that time… Feeling nostalgic?

International gathering to explore the work of J. Krishnamurti

This summer, in the magical Swiss mountain village of Muerren, there will be a gathering to explore Krishnamurti’s work during two weeks of enquiry, from Saturday July 26 until Sunday August 9. The theme for both weeks is “you are not a separate individual, you are in essence humanty.” It is possible to come for either one or both weeks.

K Gathering Muerren

Activities include dialogues, video’s, musical evenings, various workshops and of course twice-weekly hikes in the gorgeous Swiss mountains, weather permitting. There is also a parents and children week from 19-26 July in Gstaad and a young person’s week from 10-17 August in Bourg-St-Pierre.

Friends of Brockwood Park Retreat spaces available

The First Friends Retreat is due to occur at the Krishnamurti Centre, beginning on the evening of Friday 30th May and ending on the afternoon of Sunday 1st June (a change from the dates mentioned in the November letter). We hope that you will be able to join us for a weekend that will include dialogues, previously unseen talks from Saanen (the first ever filmed there), a tour of the School and a talk by Trustee, Mary Cadogan, about her forthcoming book, ‘Working with Krishnamurti: the Immaculate Enigma’. There will also be time enough to take a spring walk in the Grove and surrounding countryside, and to meet and talk about the operation of Friends and the work occurring at Brockwood.

News from Student Admissions

Wonderful news to share, by April we will have received the highest number of prospective students that Brockwood Park has seen for a Spring Term. In light of this if you know of anyone interested in applying for entry in September 2014, please ask them to make contact to our Admissions Department sooner rather than later, as we would not want anyone to miss out on a place: enquiry@brockwood.org.uk

The Underground Movement: Krishnamurti quotes in the London Tube

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.

IT’s Time to Return

Dear Alumni,

Brockwood Park School would like to invite all former Students, Mature Students and Staff to join us in celebrating our 45th Alumni Reunion from 21st – 25th August 2014.
