Not me. Perhaps because I would have to pay 85$ jut to hear a Professor or two talk about her/his Self, himself..... or... my Self. Smile.  :-)
Not to talk about the travel expenses going halfway around the globe or the energies nedeed.

Besides that, I have turned slowly into disliking paying anyone trying to promote themselves at so-called Esoterical lectures bluntly advertising themselves as Professors, PH.D.'s and what not, trying to tell people that being an Academic is very important. (Smile.)
And maybe someone would help that Doctor Stein. His website is really looking unhealthy in colors, and the last newsflash was year 2005. The only question left is: What do they actually serve for lunch at that program?

I might participate one day, if Krishnamurti Network would arrange a SELF-critic Program on the topic called "Messiahs and Brainwashing around the globe". :-)
I wonder if the Krishnamurti Network ever would dare to invite a member of "The Institute for Cultural Research" founded by Idries Shah? (Here it is: ) That could in fact be very interesting to watch. I think Dr. Stein's views upon Cognitive limitations would be enhanced with several miles. :-)

I do not hope I sound too harsh, because I do certainly also value some of what J. Krishnamurti wrote. But as said before, I do not like his Messiah angle and his lack of comparative studying.

Sorry about all the above, but I felt I had to write it...
