“…This journey is really an opening of the door to the individual in his relationship with the world.”

This journey I am proposing that we take together, is not to the moon, or even to the stars. The distance to the stars is much less than the distance within ourselves. The discovery of ourselves is endless, and it requires constant inquiry, a perception which is total, an awareness in which there is no choice. This journey is really an opening of the door to the individual in relationship with the world.


Previously a Residential Retreat Centre in southern France, OPEN DOOR is a mobile, non-profit making activity platform.

Can we cultivate a completely new mind rather than a conditioned one?

Is it possible to take a fresh look at our lives, question our fixed assumptions and allow observation to generate inquiry? 

Can the mind wake up and care about the movement of its own thinking & emotions; or does it stay blindly and insensitively dictated by its own process?

Are we forever confined inside who we think we are, or what others expect us to be?

Is there freedom, affection and a different kind of living, beyond all this?

International Programs

  • inquiry retreats in person
  • study intensives online
  • one-to-one individual inquiry
  • local group dialogue circles

The approach in these study programs has developed out of a deep interest in J. Krishnamurti’s teachings. 

However, the intention in our exploration together is to think for ourselves, rather than repeat and follow the insights of others.

For inquiry to be vital in life, it must be honest, precise, heartfelt and always new.

In-Person Retreats

International study retreats; a time away from everyday life to take stock, reflect, exchange with new friends and make deeper changes

Online Events

Offering meet-ups online to communicate together from all corners of the world. In depth self-inquiry without the inconvenience of travel

1-2-1 Dialogue​

One-to-one inquiry on any theme of your choice, either long distance or locally. Exploring as two friends without the weight of authority or a large group dynamic 

What we are trying to do, during all these discussions and talks here, is to see if we cannot radically bring about a transformation of the mind, not accept things as they are, nor revolt against them. Revolt doesn’t answer a thing.
You must understand it, go into it, examine it, give your heart and your mind, with everything that you have, to find out a way of living differently.
