A Gift of Wisdom & Happiness

10 SESSION COURSE

Introductory Wisdom Course only £5This ten session course of Practical Philosophy, entitled ‘Wisdom’, looks at life and its meaning, the world and its causes.

It considers:

  • What holds us back?
  • What sets us free?
  • And how Happiness is naturally obtained through Wisdom.

Based on the classic philosophies of both East and West, it invites students to see life as a place to test the words of the wise through practical and mindful exercises.

COURSES TEND TO FILL-UP IN ADVANCE

The 10 week introductory courses over the past couple of years have tended to become fully enrolled in advance of the start date, we do only have limited spaces. To avoid disappointment, it is recommended to register for the next course in advance so that you know your space has been reserved.

The Course

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.

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.

What Students Say…

Quotes from recent Practical Philosophy students …..

WONDERFUL CLASSES

“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.”

THE PRESENT MOMENT

“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”

VERY PRACTICAL

“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”.

Next Term

For next term as a Gift of Wisdom & Happiness you can enrol on the 10 week course for only a £5 course fee.

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.

For those students that wish it, in later terms the opportunity to take up mantra meditation is also made available. Meditation is a central practice in regaining inner stillness and confidence.

Some of the themes we’ll cover in the Introductory course

The Wisdom Within

Philosophy means the love of wisdom. Our course is intended to show how philosophy may help us enjoy richer, less stressful and more useful lives.

Know Thyself

Who am I, really? My body? My emotions? We look at practical ways to explore who we really are and how to tap our true potential.

Living Justly

According to Plato, justice and injustice do not start ‘out there’. They begin within ourselves. We discuss the practicality of Plato’s ideas on justice in our daily lives.

The Present Moment

We review our own experience of attention through a model featuring attention centred, captured, open and scattered.
