Pre-Reunion: Brockwood & Garden Work

One thing that was as true 40 years as it is today, is that being a student at Brockwood Park School means garden work and its good to see our former students Bruce and Lais haven’t forgotten what they learned. The reunion has not yet begun, but we have seen a fantastic number of early returns from the 70’s group who are all eager to spend some time together and get back to caring for the school as they feel it cared for them.

Brockwood Alumni Reunion 21-25 August 2014 & “What was your background like?”

In the midst of preparations for the Reunion, among the questions, the planning and the deliberating of practical organisation, we pause to remind ourselves of what underlies this event. The Reunion is fun, it is joyous to see friends, to catch up, to hang out and relax, but we may need to be reminded of what the essence is behind the existence of the school and how that continues to unfold and have relevance in our lives.

The Krishnamurti Foundation Trust at Brockwood have released several videos of Krishnamurti on Youtube to help disseminate and make his work easily accessible to all. With regard to the upcoming event, we would like to share with you a collection of videos of Krishnamurti in conversation with Brockwood staff and students during his annual visits to the school. Perhaps you were part of these seminars? Maybe you lived at Brockwood during this time? The playlists we include here took place at Brockwood between 1978 and 1985.
