The aim of philosophy is to set people free; free from pressure, free from worry; free to grow, free to be yourself. So it seems fitting that a philosophy course should itself be free (apart from a £5 administration fee).
This ten session course, called Practical Philosophy, looks at life and its meaning, the world and its causes. It considers, what holds us back? What sets us free? Based on the classic philosophies of East and West, it invites students to see life as a place to test the words of the wise through practical exercises.
The next course takes place on a choice of 2 days for 10 consecutive weeks:
Tuesday 20th September 2016 at 7:15pm.
Wednesday 21st September 2016 at 7:15pm.

The course provides an understanding of what a naturally balanced life is like, and offers practical steps to achieve this for oneself including an introduction to a mindfulness awareness exercise in week one.
For those students that wish it, the opportunity to take up mantra meditation is also made available. Meditation is a central practice in regaining inner stillness and confidence.
In the company of like minded people, the introductory course in Practical Philosophy caters for all those that feel the need of a systematic way to enjoy a meaningful life, whatever their background, beliefs, education or gender.
Quotes from recent Practical Philosophy students …..
“Thank you so much to my tutor for the wonderful classes that you have taken.
My whole life has transformed since joining the course. I feel a much better person and that is all credit to you and the way you conduct the class and encourage its members.”
“This course ‘woke me up’, particularly to the present moment. Learning to use the ‘full stop’ between daily events and pausing, rather than everything running in to one continuum”.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed this course. It has been very practical and has given me lots of tools and exercises to use in my daily life. Coming back each week and feeding back to the group has reinforced what I have learned and given me extra pointers”.
For next term as a Gift of Wisdom and Happiness you can enrol on the 10 week course for only a £5 admin charge.
For those that wish to continue with these courses there is a three year foundation level series of courses available. Each of these courses are approached in a practical manner and will include simple practical tools, including the introduction to a mindfulness exercise.
