FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

ABOUT THE COURSE

Philosophy brings us to ourselves, here and now, giving us the opportunity to think more deeply about the subjects that really matter to us. What is truth? Who am I? What is this universe? What is my part in it? What is freedom? How can I find meaning and satisfaction in my life?

The course considers a wide range of philosophical ideas, tapping into the wisdom of the great minds of East and West that have stood the test of time from Epicurus to Plato, Patanjali to Confucius, Krishna to Srī Śāntananda Sarasvatī.

Reference is made to many works including, but not limited to Rumi, Shakespeare, Kahlil Gibran, Einstein, Helen Keller as well as the Bhagavad Gītā and the Upanishads.

There are no pre-requisites for the course.

The approach is practical rather than academic. There are no exams to pass. The course does not offer certificates or diplomas.

All that is needed is a thoughtful approach to life, a desire to know more, experience greater happiness and discover the practical means to fulfillment.

10 weekly online sessions via Zoom of around 90 minutes each.

Engaging conversations with like minded individuals.

Exercises to refine the power of attention, self-reliance and reason.

Clarity of mind and openness of heart.

Increased energy and awareness.

Time to talk about things that matter.

COURSE QUESTIONS

An inquiring spirit, an open mind, a willing heart. There are no text-books for the course. All materials will be provided. 

Upon registration, you will receive a welcome email with all the necessary instructions and links to connect to the course via Zoom.

The sessions are delivered in English only. There will be a few Sanskrit words introduced, each will be discussed and explained in the session. If English is a second language, or if you do not speak English, please seek a School in your region.

ABOUT PRACTICAL PHILOSOPHY AUSTRALIA

There have been Schools of Practical Philosophy offering courses in Australia since 1967. As a response to the unique situation and possible isolation everyone may be facing, these different Schools have come together to offer the whole Introductory Course online, completely free of charge for the coming term.

None of the Schools are part of a religious group or affiliated with any religion or religious teaching.

The primary aim of our Schools is freedom; the sort of practical freedom which allows a person to simply be themselves, with the confidence that comes from deep self-knowledge.

The secondary aim of our Schools depends on the first aim. With the confidence that comes from self-knowledge, individuals use their talents to uplift the communities in which they live.

As a result, our horizons become broader, our world larger, our sense of ourselves more universal. These aims are fulfilled through two kinds of work: work on one’s own self, as well as work with and for others.

In our courses, you will explore life’s big questions in a supportive and systematic way that is guided by the approach of neither accepting nor rejecting anything, but testing everything in your own experience.

The online classes are live, interactive sessions and are not lectures. You will be in the good company of like-minded people from diverse backgrounds. You will leave each class with time-tested principles and practices to apply in daily living and a toolbox of skills informed by the wisdom of great philosophers.

The Schools are run by students on a voluntary basis. The tutors are also students who have studied the School's teachings and philosophy for many years. They serve without receiving any monetary compensation, in order to share the benefits of the knowledge they have received.

This ensures that our Schools remain places suffused with a generous spirit of love, providing a setting where wisdom naturally flourishes.

FEES

Fees are payable per student, per course, per term before commencement of the course.

The fees include 10 weekly live online sessions, a practical online workshop and weekly reminder emails.

A full refund is offered if for whatever reason your circumstances change and you notify us by the end of the first week of the course. Please email PPAadmin@practicalphilosophyaustralia.org.au

"The exercises presented in the course have really changed my life. Just learning to rest in the present moment eliminated a ton of stress from my life, and has certainly improved my relationships and sense of well-being."

HISTORY

PRACTICAL PHILOSOPHY AUSTRALIA IS AN ASSOCIATION OF INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS.

map

AUSTRALIA

The first School of Practical Philosophy in Australia was founded in Sydney in 1967. The Melbourne School opened as a legally independent organisation in 1977, Perth in 1991 and Brisbane in 1994. The Schools in these capital cities have opened branches in their respective States. Each of the Schools is legally independent, but all share a common interest and bond through the same philosophical teaching.

WORLD-WIDE

The Schools in Australia are part of a world-wide association of independent organisations all of which originated from the School of Philosophy and Economic Science founded in London in the 1930s. Now there are Schools operating in 18 countries and 50 cities.

Given the global outbreak of Covid-19, all these schools are now offering the Introductory Course online. This means that the School's courses are available to anyone in the world.

SCHOOL'S COURSES

Every course offered in the School is a stand-alone course with its own theme, its own focus and its own transformative practices. But they work together, with each course building on previous courses.

The Schools have also been training people in meditation for more than fifty years and continue to offer the same simple and authentic practice.
