EVER WONDERED WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE TO LIVE A RICHER AND MORE MEANINGFUL LIFE?
The Schools of Practical Philosophy are not-for-profit, non-religious centres for practical knowledge and spiritual inquiry that have been operating in Australia for over 50 years.
Courses offered online via Zoom and Face-to-Face
The Wisdom Within is the first course at Practical Philosophy Australia. It will introduce you to the world's great philosophical teachings, show you ways of accessing a lasting happiness beyond material gain and help you to realise the unifying power of love.
You will consider where true wisdom is found; what it means to come to a greater understanding of yourself and your states of awareness; how justice is relevant to a meaningful life, and what the present moment means in practical terms.
Join us to discover the truth of things – not in theory, but through your own experience.
The course format is live with a dedicated tutor either online or face-to-face.
During each session you'll have the opportunity to interact with the tutor as well as your fellow students.
Together you will explore the core questions about life and existence; experiment with exercises in mindfulness and discover how easily you can access the wisdom you already have within you.
