The adult who wishes to be an educator and colleague in this venture must be deeply concerned with religious enquiry. By this we do not mean the following of a religious tradition or a practice but a rootedness in the observation of one’s daily life and relationships. From this comes a capacity to be aware of the structure and nature of thought and to negate it. We invite adults who are committed to finding out if one can relate in a spirit of total freedom, co-operation and responsibility. This implies that psychological separation and identity has to be ended. Such enquiry demands all of one’s energy and commitment and cannot be a passing interest. The adult also has the responsibility of communicating and awakening the capacity for this enquiry in the young. This movement brings about a mind which is not fragmented. Shibumi is not a place of escape from the travails of the world but a challenging engagement with one’s own complexities and contradictions.
As educators we are committed to:
- Self enquiry
- The Teachings of Krishnamurti
- Working with each other
We welcome people who share the same commitments, to work with us as full time resource persons.
