Programmes

Whether as a volunteer or to attend an event, there are many ways to visit Brockwood Park and get involved in the work of the Foundation.

Stay At the Krishnamurti Centre

Set in over forty acres of grounds in the peaceful Hampshire countryside, the Centre has 19 en-suite rooms, a library, lounge, quiet room, conservatory, video rooms and dining area. There is no guidance or structured activity outside of the Theme Weekends or Study Retreats, and guests can arrange their own study programme, use the library, walk in the grounds or inquire informally with others. Day guests may use the Centre’s facilities without charge, and, by prior arrangement, have lunch for which there is a charge.

Mature Student Programme

Mature Students are generally between 21 and 30 years of age and have no dependents. The programme runs from mid-August for 11 months and is intended to support inquiry into life in the light of Krishnamurti’s teachings. Mature students are required to volunteer for 20 hours per week at the School, Centre or Foundation, in return for food and accommodation. Workplaces include the kitchen, vegetable garden, grounds or office. Mature Students live at Brockwood amongst staff and students and are a vital part of the community at Brockwood Park. 

Teacher Apprentice Programme

Krishnamurti suggested that ‘Education can be transformed only by educating the educator, and not merely creating a new pattern, a new system of action.’ Around this challenge for transformation, the Teacher Apprentice Programme provides a variety of settings and opportunities to grapple with concrete educational issues and questions, building on the insights that the apprentices come to from their own deep looking and shared inquiry. Can there be a shift from seeking answers to finding key questions that transform the way we see (and respond to) our educational challenges?

Volunteer

The activities of the Foundation have always been generously assisted by volunteers. From subtitling videos in your language to helping with dissemination through your network, the Foundation continues to rely on the help of an engaged global network of helpers. Other voluntary activities include the transcription of audio recordings, scanning archival materials, restoration of audio recordings, along with helping in the grounds and with the running of the Krishnamurti Centre. Voluntary positions can be short or long term, based at Brockwood or at home.

Job Vacancies

The Foundation welcomes inquiries from those wishing to assist in its work to preserve and make available the Krishnamurti’s teachings. Regardless of whether or not a job has been posted, we would like to hear from those with a serious interest in Krishnamurti and a commitment to working with others in a spirit of inquiry and cooperation. If this applies to you and you have skills or experience in any one or more of the following areas, then please make contact:  information technology/computers; marketing and design; administration; social media; editing or fundraising and outreach.

International Committees and UK Information Centres

Committees played an important role in the pre-digital era and were essential in disseminating the work of Krishnamurti, distributing books and brochures, showing videos and holding dialogues. Today, due to digital dissemination their role has changed somewhat but are still very valuable, assisting the Foundation with translation work and receiving legacies on behalf of Brockwood Park. Committees and Information Centres also help make people aware of the teachings by organising dialogues, retreats and other activities.
