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