Choiceless awareness, also called effortless awareness, is at the heart of J.Krishnamurti’s teachings.

- What is Choiceless Awareness and how it is directly related to the awakening of a holistic intelligence free from the limitations of our conditioning and of our feeling of separateness?
- What is its relasionship with pure observation, attention and a peaceful mind?

- And many more questions which would emerge during our shared journey of explorations.
